In brief: I would wait to use

Usually when being treated with peg interferon and ribavirin, you become immunosuppresed (i.
e. Low immune system), so any other injections like juvederm can lead to local inflammation/skin reactions, infections and confound the other symptoms that you might be experiencing while undergoing treatment. I would wait to use juvederm until you finish your treatment therapy.
