You do not have to undergo facial plastic surgery to get a youthful and vibrant look. At MacMed Spa we offer various non-surgical treatments such as microdermabrasion and dermal fillers to enhance your facial features and give you a spotless and younger-looking appearance. Juvederm® injections are common dermal fillers that are safe and effective in eliminating wrinkles, creases, and fine lines on the face. After the injections, it is important to know how to care for the treatment area and maintain the results. Fortunately, Juvederm® aftercare is easy and simple.
Avoid Massaging the Treatment Area
Do not massage or pick the treatment area because it can affect the filler placement. You can use ice, arnica cream, and bromelain tablets to ease potential discomfort. For the best results, avoid flexing muscles of the injection site because it could disturb the Juvederm® gel. A day after your treatment, avoid sudden facial movements such as laughing.
Avoid Alcohol and Herbal Supplements
Do not drink alcoholic beverages for 24 hours after the treatment to reduce the risk of complications at the injection site. Avoid herbal supplements such as garlic, ginger, ginkgo biloba, and ginseng. Although these supplements have numerous benefits, they are blood thinners that affect recovery after Juvederm® injections.
Do Not Engage in Strenuous Exercise
Vigorous exercise can strain the treatment area and cause discomfort. It can also increase your blood pressure and pulse rate and affect the results of the procedure.
Avoid Sun Exposure and Excessive Heat
The sun causes many skin problems such as wrinkles, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. Always wear sunscreen to maintain healthy and vibrant skin. Excessive heat from saunas and hot showers can also delay the healing process.
Schedule Your Juvederm® Appointment Before Your Special Day
Get a Juvederm® treatment a few days before your special event to give the treatment site enough time to heal. Do not get the treatment on your special day to avoid any unwanted redness.
Makeup After the Procedure
You don’t have to wait for days or weeks to wear your makeup after the treatment. Wash the treatment area gently with a cleanser and apply makeup as usual.
