3 Tips For Your First Time Getting Juvederm


Juvederm is a very popular cosmetic filler that can be used to plump up and smooth out your cheeks, lips, or other areas of the face. Juvederm, if injected in conservative amounts, is very soft and natural-looking. Juvederm fillers can help your face look more youthful and symmetrical and can be combined with other cosmetic services like Botox to achieve your beauty goals. Here are three tips for your first time getting Juvederm fillers.

Learn How to Avoid Bruising

Some people experience bruising after Juvederm fillers, but luckily, this can often be avoided by taking certain precautions. Your doctor will likely recommend that you avoid anti-inflammatory medicine such as ibuprofen in the days leading up to your fillers because these thin the blood which can increase the chances of bruising.

You should also apply an ice pack to the affected area when you get home to further reduce the risk of bruising after Juvederm. Finally, using an arnica cream or taking arnica in capsule form has been shown to reduce bruising and speed up healing as well. Your doctor may suggest you start using arnica before your injections to prevent bruises from forming in the first place.

Be Prepared for Swelling

In addition to bruising, swelling of the area being injected can happen after Juvederm. This is especially common with lip filler. The swelling can last anywhere from a few days to a week or longer. For this reason, it's a good idea to plan your Juvederm appointment for a couple of weeks before any major events, photo shoots, or vacations.

Once the swelling goes down, your Juvederm fillers will look amazing and you will be ready for any event where you want to look and feel your best.

Take a Conservative Approach

While it is always possible to add more Juvederm after the fact, dissolving filler when you get too much is a more complicated and expensive procedure. To avoid regretting that you got too much filler, it's important to tell your doctor you would like a natural look and to start out with a small amount since it's your first time. Then at your follow-up appointment in a few weeks, you and your doctor can evaluate your results and add a bit more filler if needed.

Getting Juvederm for the first time can improve your self-confidence by helping you achieve the look you're interested in. Start by following these tips and having a consultation with an experienced doctor in your area.

It was really incredible to see how much of a difference they were able to make, and within no time, I felt like I looked a ton better. This blog is all about choosing a better salon to get a personal makeover.
