It . It is possible to be allergic to almost anything...Especially depending on your definition of allergy. Medically speaking, an allergy is a type of hypersensitivity disorder caused by the immune system. When a person's immune system over-reacts to a normally harmless substance in the environment, we call that an allergy. This over-reaction can bring on an inflammatory response which can range from uncomfortable to dangerous. The main substance in juvederm is hyaluronic acid - a naturally occuring part of the extracellular matrix. This is the scaffolding that surrounds all the cells in your body. Thus, one would not expect an allergic reaction to this product. With many topical medications (drops for example) the patient thinks that they are reacting to the medication when in reality they are reacting to the preservative in the drop or the carrier molecule. Sometimes a patient will get a shot and have pain at the site or swelling or bruising and will tell me that they "must be allergic" to the medication. Although this reaction is not wanted, it is not a true allergy and can happen even with injection of saline solution. When in doubt...Skip it. Hope that helps. Read more...
