FDA Issues Warning on Purchase of Unapproved Fillers

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is warning healthcare practitioners and consumers not to purchase Juvederm Ultra 2, 3 or 4 online as the products are not approved for use in the U.S. The FDA updated its web page on “Dermal Fillers Approved by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health” last week with the warning, noting it has become aware that unapproved versions of Juvederm are being sold and distributed in the U.S. by online retailers.
