Juvederm Under Eye and Plavix: I’m 57 and am on Plavix because of two heart stents (long story) otherwise very fit and healthy. I have had Botox numerous times before and after with only minor bruising at the injection sites. Can Juvederm be injected under the eye due to excess skin/wrinkles/hollowness while on Plavix? Thanks for the info.Tuesday, March 20th, 2012
The under eye area is extremely vascular and delicate. It is possible to inject filler under the eye while on plavix, but this will certainly increase the probability of a bruise. Since botox is applied very superficially in the skin, there is a much smaller chance of bruising than with restylane under the eyes as that is injected much more deeply.
