Redness – There may be some redness around the injection site following JUVÉDERM™ treatment. Bruising – Mild bruising around injection sites may occur after a patient receives a JUVÉDERM™ injection. Swelling – Swelling after JUVÉDERM™ injections have been administered is not uncommon.

Drink plenty of water.
