Possible...: Short answer, yes. It is common for juvederm to cause swelling and redness at the site of injection. It is also common to have itching associated with it. These generally subside over time. If however you are having increasingly severe reactions to the injections with increased itching, swelling and redness each time you get the injection, you should consider an allergy.
