How Does JUVEDERM Work?

JUVEDERM® is applied with a fine needle just under the skin. Beforehand, Judy will apply a cream to numb the area to be injected. JUVEDERM does contain lidocaine as well, a numbing medicine, to help with discomfort. Afterwards, the areas of injection may be massaged gently. The whole process will only take 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the area which is being treated. There is also minimal recovery time so you can return to you regular activities the same day. For your first visit be prepared to answer questions about your medical history, including any medication you may be taking or allergies you may have. Judy will examine your skin and measure the depth of your wrinkles or folds to better discuss the level of treatment that is appropriate for you individually.

Are There Do's & Don'ts?

A week before your procedure, it is recommended that you avoid taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs which thin the blood. This will reduce the risk of bruising at the injection site. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous physical activities or excessive sun and heat exposure as well as the consumption of alcohol, at least for the first 24 hours. Also, be careful about application of make-up. This will help reduce the chance of some possible side-effects like redness, itching, swelling or bumps. These reactions are usually mild to moderate and resolve within 7 days or less. Applying an ice pack for a brief period of time may be helpful if you notice some of these reactions.
