Do I Need Any Downtime After Juvederm?
Juvederm Lip Fillers
Injectable fillers are becoming more and more popular by the day due to their ability to give you excellent results quickly, without the need for invasive surgery methods. I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to reclaim their youthful good looks after experiencing the early signs of aging? With Juvederm, you’d be surprised how quickly you can achieve the full, youthful contours you desire with little downtime.
Where Can Juvederm Be Used?
Juvederm is a smooth, light gel-based formula that can be injected into your lips to give them more volume and make them look more voluptuous. But that’s not all. This product can be used in other areas of your face to add more volume and fill in wrinkles.
It can be used around the nose and mouth area where fine lines and wrinkles more frequently appear. It can also be injected into the cheek area to increase their volume, giving you a younger and more beautiful look. It’s the ideal solution for people who struggle with a loss of volume as they get older.
There are two types of Juvederm gels – Juvederm XC and Juvederm Voluma XC and each is used for different areas of the face. Some gels can also be used to fill in the area under eyes as well.
Of the lip fillers available on the market today, Juvederm is a very popular option. It comes in two different types – Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus. However, there are many other types of Juvederm fillers available depending on your exact requirements. You can discuss your needs with your doctor and receive guidance on which filler is the right choice for you.
Juvederm and HA Acid
All Juvederm fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. It’s an essential component that helps to moisturize the skin and keep it soft and supple. HA acid helps the skin to retain moisture and remain soft, which in turn helps to add volume to the skin.
The Juvederm Treatment
During the procedure, your doctor will clean the treatment area and mark the sites to be injected for precision during the injection process. Your doctor will then inject the Juvederm into the targeted areas.
She will lightly massage the area to ensure the even distribution of Juvederm and to reduce chances of swelling. As a minimally invasive injection treatment, it can be performed quickly. In some cases, patients can be in and out in about 15 mins depending on the area(s) being treated.
All Juvederm injections contain a small amount of a pain-reducing chemical called lidocaine. This helps minimize any discomfort you might feel during the treatment and make the pain go away quickly.
Do You Need Any Downtime After Juvederm?
Recovery time after having Juvederm injectable fillers is minimal. However, people are advised to avoid any kind of strenuous activity, overexposure to the sun, wearing makeup, and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours after the Juvederm treatment.
You will start to notice the results of Juvederm right away, and continue to see improvements over the course of time as the HA replenishes the moisture in your skin. Results will typically last between six months to two years.
