What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. There are several products in the Juvederm family. They all are used to help people address the facial signs of aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The different products are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency.
You may not be a good candidate if:
- You are allergic to any ingredient in Juvederm or another Juvederm product.
- You have a skin infection at the planned site of injection.
- You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
- You have a severe illness or infection.
What does recovery time look like?
Recovery time is minimal. But, people are advised to avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, wearing makeup, and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours post treatment. Most notice the effects of Juvederm right away, or after the swelling reduces. Some people report bruising.
