One of the many benefits of JUVÉDERM® is the minimal downtime involved after your treatment. For the first 24 hours following your procedure, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. These simple precautions will help minimize temporary injection-related reactions such as redness, itching at the treatment site, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps.
Studies have shown that these reactions are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period. Our doctors will tell you when makeup may be applied after your wrinkle treatments.
