Juvederm dermal filler treatment uses a soft tissue filler to contour the face and smooth wrinkles such as fine lines around the mouth.
Aging leads to facial volume loss, and facial fillers such as Juvederm offer an ideal non-surgical solution to add fullness to depleted areas of the face.
The filler will reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines, add volume to thin lips, fill hollow spaces under the eyes, replenish volume to the cheeks and cheekbones, and enhance the appearance of surgical and pitted acne scars. The treatment is ideal for patients seeking a non-surgical rejuvenation treatment for the face.
Similar to any procedure, the patient should understand what a Juvederm procedure involves. A good way to start is to identify an expert dermatologist and ask relevant questions.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides Juvederm medical spa treatment to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding locations in this majestic state of Texas.
What is the downtime associated with the procedure?
You might have to budget for some recovery time with the Juvederm dermal filler treatment. Although you can resume your normal routine almost immediately, make sure that you receive your Juvederm injectable treatment one to two weeks prior to an important event or special occasion to give you enough time to completely recover from the treatment.
Will there be inflammation? If yes, how long will it take the swelling to subside?
If you need multiple filler syringes, the inflammation may remain up to a week, and you may feel nodules beneath your skin. This is a normal side effect. The nodules will become softer and disappear after a week of the Juvederm treatment. Inflammation is quite common, especially in the lip area. Planning for the downtime associated with Juvederm is vital.
Will the treatment cause bruising? If yes, how can you mitigate it?
If a person is prone to bruising, it can occur as a side effect of the Juvederm treatment. It is advisable to avoid Vitamin E, aspirin, Ginkgo Biloba, fish oil, garlic, Ibuprofen, and ginseng. The patient should avoid smoking and taking Tylenol to reduce the occurrence of bruising.
Can you eat following the Juvederm treatment, especially if the Juvederm filler treatment is performed on your lips?
You should eat before you come in for the treatment. Eating afterward, especially following Juvederm treatment on the lips is not a salient idea. It is essential to minimize chewing and facial expressions for up to four hours after the treatment.
What if you have cold sores?
You should inform the dermatologist in advance if you are prone to developing cold sores. You may require an antiviral drug prior to any treatment around the mouth in case you are pre-disposed to the development of cold sores.
Can you exercise following the treatment?
You can exercise before the treatment as it is not advisable to exercise right after the treatment or on the day of the Juvederm treatment.
How can you avoid or minimize pain during treatment?
You can use cold compresses and Motrin following the treatment to address any discomfort. Sleeping with a cold gel mask will offer comfort if you have received Juvederm filler treatment in the eye area.
How can you obtain natural-looking outcomes?
The most effective way to get natural looking outcomes is to choose a well-qualified provider who has a concrete understanding of facial balance and proportion as well as an artistic outlook.
