Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .
Juvederm can move a bit from the injection site, but not far. If you put pressure on the area you can displace it to the sides a bit and smooth it out (this can be helpful if you have lumps or bumps afterward). It does not move to other areas of the face or body because of connective tissues under the skin.
