Juvederm is a sought-after dermal filler which aims to slow down and rectify the effects of aging on the face. This injectable treatment is ideal for people who seek facial rejuvenation in a non-surgical way.
Juvederm fills in facial creases, wrinkles, and fine lines as well as moisturizes and lubricates the skin to help it appear softer and more youthful.
During the initial consultation, the Juvederm injection provider will explain about all aspects related to the treatment, including its estimated recovery. Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides Juvederm medical spa treatment to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding towns and cities in this part of this amazing state.
Patients are usually fine after receiving the Juvederm facial filler treatment. They can immediately return to their routine after the procedure.
The treatment provider will instruct the patient not to touch the injection area to avoid irritation as well as other problems. A few hours following the treatment, the patient may experience mild inflammation, bruising, and pinkness of the skin.
The side effects that present themselves at the end of the initial day after the Juvederm treatment will persist over the next four to five days. A majority of patients notice that the side effects continue to become less visible with each passing day. The application of ice packs can help manage these minor side effects.
If the side effects worsen, the patient should reach out to the practice so that these problems can be resolved promptly.
The side effects of the Juvederm filler injections should ideally resolve by the end of week one. At this stage, the aesthetic outcomes become visible which means that the patient will experience lesser lines and attain a more supple and youthful skin.
Certain patients may notice minor inflammation remains at the end of the week. This is not alarming, and the minor inflammation will subside in the following days. This depends on the patient and the type of filler used. Effectively, the patient will enjoy the cosmetic advantages from their Juvederm injectable procedure for up to many months.
The treatment provider will apprise the patient on these matters in a detailed manner during the consultation process.
Juvederm aftercare is easy, and it does not commonly cause interference with the patients’ daily routines. Patients should avoid exposure to sunlight and heat as this can cause increased inflammation and bruising in the injection area.
In addition, the patient should not undergo laser skin tightening, laser skin resurfacing, and other laser-based treatment as they present a possibility of causing further swelling. The pain after the treatment is usually minimal.
A usual complaint by recipients of the Juvederm treatment is the development of inflammation though this usually resolves in the initial few days after the treatment. The healing duration varies between patients, and in some patients, the inflammation and redness persist longer than in other patients.
The doctor will ask the patient not to flex their facial muscles in the treatment area. Stretching the facial muscles can interfere with the Juvederm gel. It is advisable to avoid sudden movements in the treated area for the initial 24 hours following the Juvederm procedure.
