Juvederm to my forehead scars and nasolabial
Doctor Answers 11
Thank you for your clinical post and sorry to hear that the attempted injectable restoration and scar improvement did not achieve the desired results. The use of Juvederm, be it Ultra Plus or Voluma or even Volift, means that the product itself will dissipate over time and one option is to leave it and let Mother Nature and your own body’s enzymes remove the product. However, if your aesthetic appearance is aesthetically concerning this will not be a viable option that may take many months for the product to dissolve itself. Active dissolution of the product using various enzyme preparations that dissolve the Juvederm is often a good option at this point. I would select either a physician that performed the procedure or another physician that you have trust in because discussions of other options for enhancement or improvement and blending of your facial scars would need to be discussed.
I would consult with your primary injecting physician to try and get some degree of enhancement or improvement.
I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.

Unhappy with Juvederm result
- Please return to the dermatologist who treated you -
- You may need to have some of the filler dissolved if you are unhappy with how you look.
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.
Juvederm and uneven results
Juvederm is a great product to be injected into scars and nasolabial folds. However, if the results are uneven you may need to have the injections dissolved with Vitrase. Good injections should rejuvenate your face and if your face looks unnatural you should consult with a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Juvederm and facial injections.

Thank you so much for your question. Without a face-to-face examination it is difficult to completely understand your concerns. One of the great advantages of the hyaluronic acid class of fillers (Juverderm, for example) is that they can be reversed by the injection of jyaluronidase - an enzyme that dissolves the injected filler. Perhaps you received too much in the nasolabial folds that may give you your "tired" appearance. The unevenness can be corrected by the injection of additional filler or by the dissolution of filler that is already in.
Return to your injector and express your concerns to resolve your undesired results. There is no need to wait until the Juvederm goes away on its own.
