JUVÉDERM® treatment is simple. Because it is made from biosynthetic hyaluronic acid, there is no risk of allergic reaction. Patients are not required to take an allergy test before the procedure.
At the beginning of your 30-minute appointment, we will numb the injection site with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Discomfort is further minimized because JUVÉDERM® is made from an especially smooth gel, and can be administered using a very thin needle. Once the site is numb, JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the treatment sites. Results are evident almost immediately after the procedure.
Patients can return to normal activities right away – no downtime is necessary. Most physicians recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours after treatment. Make-up should not be worn on the day of the procedure, but it is usually safe soon afterward.
