Hello. I halve systemic scleroderma (dx’ed 2007: prom ain’t Rynauds, esophageal dymotility, and severe mall owl involvement) and have considered juvederm volbella to help the slightly drunken appearance to my tear troughs. I handle Botox well with no side effects/exacerbation of my scleroderma. I have no facial involvement. Is there my complications with an injectable filled in an individual with systemic scleroderma?
Hi and thank you for your question! Having Scleroderma is not a contraindication for getting hyaluronic acid fillers and as a matter of fact, there are a number of reports of successful use of these fillers in correction of facial defects caused by Scleroderma. Please make sure to let your physician know about the preexisting condition and also, discuss your plans to undergo filler treatment with your Scleroderma doctor to make sure no additional precaution is warranted. I hope it helps and good luck!
