You don’t have to bear with the signs of aging on your face anymore. You can use JUVÉDERM® to eliminate fine lines, creases, and wrinkles, as well as to add volume to your lips and cheeks. Also, the procedure can reduce acne scars and fill loose skin. JUVÉDERM® is the most common safe and effective facial filler and gives you a younger-looking appearance and rejuvenated look. MacMed Spa, Salon, and Medical can carry out JUVÉDERM® treatments to give you the best results and your dream look. If you are considering the procedure, knowing what to expect can make the process more comfortable and pleasant.
Drink Pineapple Juice
Pineapple juice contains natural enzymes that prevent swelling and bruising after the procedure. Drink a cup of pineapple juice three days before your appointment.
Avoid Certain Medications
Although over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen and aspirin are good painkillers, they are also blood thinners that increase the risk of bruising after an injection. Therefore, avoid them for about five days before the procedure.
Avoid Certain Herbal Supplements
Before the procedure, you should avoid herbal supplements such as fish oil, ginseng, and Vitamin E, because these are blood thinners. Although these supplements have massive benefits, you should not take them in the week leading up to the treatment.
Steer Clear of Alcohol
Do not drink alcohol for a few days before the treatment because it increases the risk of bruising and bleeding.
You may have a little swelling or bruising after the treatment, but don’t worry because it disappears in no time. Avoid touching the treated area for the first 24 hours to enhance recovery. In addition, refrain from strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and alcoholic drinks. You can apply regular makeup after the treatment. Although the results of the procedure can be seen almost immediately, it is advisable to wait for two weeks before you assess the outcome.
