Hi. My name is***** have over two decades of experience, and I'm online and available to help you today.We can also chat by hone and skype.
can you upload some pictures?
Have you had any imaging studies done of the area (MRI or CT Scan)?
Do you know what the dermal filling was made of?
Was the dermal filling placed by a licensed MD?
Any pain or other symptoms?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Ok. I will standby....
I see exactly what you are talking about.....
While reactions to Juvaderm are rare, they do happen....even delayed issues like you are experiencing.
So. What do I think your options are at this point?
1. Since things have not gotten worse since your IV dose of steroids and starting the oral therapy, that is a good thing..... At this point I would continue with the oral steroids as prescribed and put cold packs on the area as you are able.
2. If things don't get better in a week or so, or should you suddenly get more swelling or new symptoms, you may have to have the juvaderm surgically removed :(
Does this make sense to you?

That is entirely possible.....
It might end up that the steroids work and we never do figure out what caused this....but, hey. As long as you are better we can chalk that up as a win ;)
I hope you feel better soon.
