A Juvederm mistake/problem!

Hi Dr. Irwin. I had Juvederm injected over my right eyebrow two weeks ago. The Injector (visiting from Florida)was not a Board Certified Doctor. I had bruising and swelling. I now have about a two inch oblong bump on my brow bone. Can I use Hyaluronidase to disolve it? Or should I try to massage it out? What should I do? I don't want to make it worse.

Okay –  I’m trying to bite my tongue on this and I know you know why!!  Please, please don’t let anyone who’s untrained and not Board Certified or closely supervised by someone who is Board Certified, treat your face!   It’s just not worth the money you are trying to save.  And Board Certified in dermatology or plastic surgery, not radiology or family practice or emergency medicine.  How to find a good doctor.

From what you are describing a good dermatologist or plastic surgeon, who treats with fillers regularly, should be able to help you   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
