Simple pre-consultation and treatment advice often includes abstaining from aspirin, ibuprofen, and St. John’s wort. Additionally, you’ll want to abstain from alcohol in the weeks preceding therapy. Additionally, smoking is discouraged before therapy. Avoiding these items can assist in preventing bruising. Additionally, inform your doctor of any allergies or sensitivities.

What is the mechanism of action of Juvederm?

Juvederm works by injecting hyaluronic acid into the facial tissue to create volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally gel-like material in the body, it is our natural fillers. It encourages the formation of connective tissue that gives the skin its plump appearance (collagen). Our body produces less hyaluronic acid and collagen. This exacerbates the appearance of facial skin sagging and wrinkling.

Typically, one of the Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centers in Edmonton will take pictures and discuss the regions to be treated during the operation. Following that, your doctor will inject Juvederm into the desired location. Additionally, they will carefully massage the region to ensure uniform dispersion and minimize the risk of edema. The full operation typically takes between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the region treated.

Juvederm injections include a trace of lidocaine, a pain reliever. This will assist in minimizing any pain or discomfort you experience during treatment and ensuring that it passes fast.


Possible side effects

You should anticipate swelling and bruises. Redness, soreness, lumps or bumps, slight discomfort, and itching are all frequent adverse effects.

All of these adverse reactions typically resolve within two to four weeks.

Serious adverse effects are often connected with inexperienced handlings, such as accidentally injecting Juvederm into a blood artery. Permanent scarring, visual problems, blindness, or stroke are possible complications. That is why it is critical to pick your physician carefully. Ascertain that they have received appropriate training, certification, and licensing to do the procedure.


What to expect following Juvederm?

The recovery period is brief. However, individuals are recommended to abstain from physical exercise, sun exposure, wearing cosmetics, and alcohol use for at least 24 hours following treatment.

The majority of patients see the results of Juvederm immediately or shortly after the edema subsides. Typically, the effects endure between six months and two years. This varies according to the Juvederm product utilized.

We can make certain lines vanish, while others we are content to soften. Then we fill up hollows caused by volume loss. Revolumization causes shadows that cause a harsh appearance to soften or vanish.

Replacing volume also helps raise certain areas of the face, such as jowls or the corners of the mouth, which begin to droop with age. We focus on regions of the face where a small amount of volume may make a significant effect.
