How to Get the Most From Your Juvederm Injections

September 15, 2017

Juvéderm® Chevy Chase, MDLosing volume in your skin is one of the few downfalls of aging. Luckily, with facial fillers like Juvederm, our staff at Chevy Chase Dermatology can help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth and cheeks, and add volume to your cheeks and lips at the same time. To ensure that you get the best and most effective results from your Juvederm injections, we have created a brief guide listing three steps to follow. Read on to learn more.

Stay Away from Excessive Heat

After you get your Juvederm injections, try to stay away from excessive heat from things like saunas, hot tubs, or hot showers for a few days. The extreme temperatures can make your blood vessels dilate which will cause you to bleed and bruise more— increasing your recovery time in the process.

Watch Your Medications

For about two weeks before your Juvederm injections, try to not take any over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin or ibuprofen because they can thin out your blood and increase your chances of bruising. Additionally, try to get off herbal supplements as well because they have the same adverse effects.

Don’t Wear Makeup

Even though we can wipe off your makeup with a cotton pad and rubbing alcohol before we give you injections, we prefer if you come into our office without any makeup on. Makeup can get into your fine lines and wrinkles, and pores which make it harder for us to properly fill them in with Juvederm.

By following the three easy tips listed above, you can get better results from your Juvederm injections. If you would like to learn more about Juvederm and whether or not it’s right for you, contact Chevy Chase Dermatology today and schedule an appointment with our staff!
