What Should You Avoid Before and After JUVÉDERM® Injections?
By now, JUVÉDERM is a household name and one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. This is because JUVÉDERM offers a wide range of benefits depending on the area being treated. Patients can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines or even correct problems like hollow cheeks.
Today, board-certified physician Dr. Lily Phillips discusses what to avoid before and after JUVÉDERM injections to maintain stunning anti-aging outcomes. Keep reading to learn more from the aesthetic professionals at Ageless Grace in Murrieta, CA.
How does JUVÉDERM work?
JUVÉDERM is a hyaluronic acid filler that restores lost volume in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps to keep skin looking firm and healthy. Patients appear more youthful and refreshed as a result. At Ageless Grace, a trained injector of JUVÉDERM dermal fillers knows how to apply this advanced formula to reduce fine lines and more.
What should I avoid before JUVÉDERM?
Ageless Grace offers comprehensive consultations to decide which areas should be treated with JUVÉDERM, as well as discuss pre-and post-procedure instructions to make the most of treatment and results. We encourage patients to be upfront about their expectations and anti-aging goals so we can recommend the best course of action moving forward.
There are some things patients should avoid before JUVÉDERM injections. First, do not take any blood thinner medications or supplements before your appointment. These can increase your risk of side effects, like bruising and swelling. Additionally, be sure to avoid excess sun exposure. Sunburned skin is more sensitive and can make inflammation worse.
What should I avoid after JUVÉDERM?
Just like before treatment, there are a few things to avoid after JUVÉDERM injections:
Continue to avoid taking blood thinners as directed
Continue to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds
Avoid strenuous exercise that may increase swelling and inflammation
Avoid pools, hot tubs, and spas to prevent chemicals from irritating the treated area
Avoid rubbing or massaging the treatment area to prevent JUVÉDERM from migrating to unwanted areas
Following these simple instructions can help you achieve and maintain your gorgeous outcomes.
How long does JUVÉDERM last?
Dermal fillers are popular because they correct many signs of aging from six months to two years based on the formula chosen. Of course, your timeline will also differ based on the dosage, areas being treated, and your individual anatomy.
