High Importance!! The FDA warns against using unapproved versions of Juvederm
The FDA warns against using unapproved versions of Juvederm
On Thursday, June 8, the FDA updated its Dermal Fillers (Soft Tissue Fillers)website to warn the public about unapproved versions of Juvederm, such as Juvederm Ultra 2, 3, or 4, which are being sold and distributed illegally in the U.S.
Juvederm is a prescription device that should only be injected and sold by or on the prescription of a licensed health care provider. Consumers should not buy Juvederm online because the products available to buy without a medical license may not be safe or work as promised. Health care providers and consumers should avoid products labeled as Juvederm Ultra 2, 3 or 4, because these products are not approved by the FDA for use in the U.S., and their safety and effectiveness cannot be assured.
