How does JUVÉDERM work to restore youthful volume?
JUVÉDERM is a dermal filler whose main ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA injections are a common way of restoring volume to various areas of the face and plumping up features.
JUVÉDERM is typically used to:
Treat age-related volume loss in the face
Plump the lips, cheeks, and chin
Give a more defined profile by sculpting the chin
Smooth out facial wrinkles
Fill in nasolabial folds
Fill in the area under the eyes
Unless you're allergic to the ingredients (including HA or Gram-positive bacterial proteins), or lidocaine or have a history of scarring, bleeding, bruising easily, or hyperpigmentation on the face, JUVÉDERM is a safe and common procedure for enhancing features. SkinSational MedSpa can give you more information about if JUVÉDERM is the right filler for you.
How long does it take for JUVÉDERM injections to work?
Most patients see plumping results right away.
While you can resume your normal activities right away, you may experience some swelling. It's not until this swelling subsides in 2 – 3 days that you'll begin to see the results of JUVÉDERM. The HA needs time to settle as your body adjusts, so patients need to wait 1 – 2 weeks to see the full results of treatment.
One of the crucial ways to ensure you get optimal results after JUVÉDERM fillers is to follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your experienced injector at SkinSational MedSpa.
What is recovery like after JUVÉDERM injections?
The first 24 hours after getting fillers are critical to healing properly and getting good results. During that time, patients will be asked to refrain from actions that can irritate the skin, disrupt the placement of the filler, and interfere with their body's natural healing response, including:
Picking at or scratching the injections sites
Engaging in vigorous exercise that dramatically increases blood flow
Applying makeup to the treatment areas
Leaning on or otherwise putting pressure on the treatment areas
Taking NSAID pain relievers
Lightly applying cold compresses to the face and keeping the head elevated to reduce excessive blood flow to the face are recommended for a faster recovery.
How long does JUVÉDERM last?
Unlike most wrinkle relaxers and other fillers, JUVÉDERM can last up to a year. In time, your body naturally breaks down the hyaluronic acid. After that, you'll need follow-up injections to maintain facial fullness and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
