When Will I Start To See Results?
In terms of results, you will mostly likely see an immediate improvement in the treatment area right after your appointment. Although you’ll undoubtedly be satisfied with your appearance after just one treatment, many patients require more than one session to achieve their ideal results. You can expect your smooth and youthful appearance to last for up to twelve months, at which point you may require a touch-up treatment to maintain your new look.
As a gentle and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment, there is virtually no downtime associated with Juvederm filler injections. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise, alcoholic beverages and exposure to excessive sun or heat for at least 24 hours after treatment.
Immediately after your appointment, you can expect to experience some minor redness, pain, firmness, swelling and possibly small bumps in the area. However, these effects will be very mild and should clear up within one week (probably faster). If you experience swelling near the injection site, your injector may advise you to apply ice packs regularly to minimize these effects.
