WARNINGS • JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel must not be injected into blood vessels and should not be used in vascular-rich areas. Use in these areas, such as glabella and nose, has resulted in cases of vascular embolization, occlusion of the vessels, ischemia or infarction, or blindness. Symptoms of vessel occlusion and embolization include pain that is disproportionate to the procedure or remote to the injection site, immediate blanching extending beyond the injected area, and color changes that reflect ischemic tissue such as a dusky or reticular appearance • Product use at specific sites in which an active inflammatory process (skin eruptions such as cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives) or infection is present should be deferred until the underlying process has been controlled PRECAUTIONS • The safety and effectiveness for the treatment of anatomic regions other than facial wrinkles and folds (such as lips) have not been established • As with all transcutaneous procedures, dermal filler implantation carries a risk of infection. Follow standard precautions associated with injectable materials • The safety for use during pregnancy and in breastfeeding females has not been established • The safety for use in patients under 18 years has not been established • The safety in patients with known susceptibility to keloid formation, hypertrophic scarring, and pigmentation disorders has not been studied • JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel should be used with caution in patients on immunosuppressive therapy • Patients who are using products that can prolong bleeding (such as aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and warfarin) may experience increased bruising or bleeding at treatment sites • Patients should be limited to 20 mL of JUVÉDERM XC per 60 kg (130 lbs) body mass per year.
