Post Juvéderm® instructions
22nd July 2014
It has become common practice for a majority of women to undergo some sort of laser treatment at some point of their lives. Some may want to permanently get rid of their unwanted excess hair, acne scars while others may just simply want to beautify their looks with the help of Juvéderm®.
It involves injecting a substance into the skin to minimise the folds and wrinkles that have formed on your skin. It requires a minimal amount of downtime after a treatment session and is normally used to achieve fuller plump lips.
Despite all the wonderful benefits of this procedure, it's still important for you to know about the aftercare of it in order to avoid any infections from spreading. Below are a few aftercare tips you can take on board after a treatment session. Make sure you speak to a highly trained dermatologist if you have more questions on this.
Juvéderm® aftercare tip one - avoid any additional treatments or tanning sessions until the treated area has healed
Your skin is likely to still be quite sensitive and tender after treatment so it would be advisable for you to avoid going for different types of treatment and tanning sessions for at least a week after a treatment session. This will give you sufficient amount of time for healing without having to face unnecessary side effects of treatment like infections, etc.
Juvéderm® aftercare tip two - avoid touching the treated area unnecessarily
It is advisable for you to avoid touching or unnecessarily pressing the area where you received your anti-ageing injections as this could cause irritation, soreness and could even sometimes make the treated area swell up.
Furthermore, try to get in the habit of applying your makeup or any other beauty products on very carefully. This can be achieved by making sure you aren't pressing too hard on your skin especially around the treated area/s.
Juvéderm® aftercare tip three - apply an ice pack or cold compress whenever necessary
There is nothing wrong with applying an ice pack or any other form of cold compress if you detect any bruising, swelling or redness around the treated area. This will help the affected area cool down without causing further irritation. If by any chance the pain continues, it would be worth speaking to your practitioner to seek further advice.
