Will my face look puffy if I use a filler to smooth wrinkles?
If you go to an unqualified injector, you could have a problem. It is very important that any injectable filler is used properly, and in the right quantity. While the effect can be reversed if you don’t like it, why not have your enhancement done right the first time? Always be careful when choosing an injector for Juvéderm or any other dermal filler. You want your enhancement to look completely natural.
What are the side effects?
There are few side effects associated with Juvéderm fillers, and no testing is required to ensure you are safe for treatment. You may have some minor swelling and bruising at the injection site, which fades quickly.
Can I have Juvéderm injections if I am pregnant?
As these products weren’t tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women, you shouldn’t undergo injections during those times
Are there any rules I should follow after my injections?
You are free to go about your day as usual after your treatment, but you do need to follow some rules to ensure that your enhancement looks great. For 24 hours, you must avoid:
- Vigorous exercise
- Consuming alcoholic beverages
- Extended sun or heat exposure, including sauna
How long will it last?
Depending upon the formula, the treatment could last from six months to a year, or longer. Generally, when injected to enhance lips, retreatment is needed earlier, as your lips have more blood vessels that will eventually sweep away the product.
Why is Juvéderm considered to be one of the best dermal fillers?
Juvéderm fillers are produced with unique technology that creates a very smooth gel, not granular. The smooth, fine consistency is what gives it such a soft, natural feel.
Do I need to prepare for my injections?
For at least a week prior to your appointment, you should avoid aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), to reduce the risk of bruising or excess bleeding. You should always check with your doctor to ensure it is safe to stop taking a prescribed medication. Some supplements thin the blood, including Vitamin E and ginkgo, so these supplements should also be stopped for a week.
Will I be swollen after my injections?
Any swelling is usually minor and gone within a week at most. You can use a cold compress if you experience swelling.
Why do some people look strange after dermal filler injections?
Any person could look unusual if too much filler is injected. It is important that your injector is very familiar with the product and takes a conservative approach, so you look fresh and natural. You want compliments not sidelong glances! You can trust our expert injectors to be conservative and meticulous, so the results are lovely and natural. We too would rather look old than fake.
