How To Make Your JUVEDERM® Results Last Longer

How To Make Your JUVEDERM® Results Last Longer

JUVÉDERM® treatment results are not expected to last a lifetime. JUVÉDERM® can last between 6 months and 2 years depending on the type of JUVÉDERM®, where it is injected, and how much is used. Another important factor that dictates the life of your fillers is how well you take care of yourself after treatment. Although for the most part JUVÉDERM® offers a quick and low-maintenance solution for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while creating a youthful appearance, taking the simple steps below will help you get the best results from your JUVÉDERM® treatment while helping your fillers last longer.

Extend The Results Of JUVÉDERM® With These Tips

  1. Follow All Aftercare Instructions
    Although JUVÉDERM® requires very little downtime, many people assume it needs no aftercare, but the two aren’t synonymous. Your injection specialist will give you instructions for aftercare. Follow these instructions to help the effects of JUVÉDERM® last longer, deliver the best results, and minimize any swelling or bruising after injections.
  2. Avoid Alcohol for 24 Hours
    Not drinking alcohol for the first 24 hours after JUVÉDERM® injections will lower your risk of developing bruising or swelling shortly after injection. Remember that alcohol thins your blood and this can affect your results after any type of injection.
  3. Protect Yourself Against UV Rays
    Although you should always take precautions against UV rays in order to protect your skin, these precautions can also help your JUVÉDERM® results last longer. UV exposure can cause some fillers to break down, causing the plumping effect to wear off faster. To avoid this, wear sunscreen or a moisturizer with SPF 30 every day. And don’t forget the lips. To protect lip fillers, make sure your lip balm also has SPF protection.
  4. Stay Hydrated
    Hydrating your skin by drinking water and applying moisturizers can do wonders for keeping you looking young. Drinking plenty of water helps the effects of JUVÉDERM® last longer and it prevents the further development of wrinkles and fine lines while keeping your skin supple.
  5. Use Serums
    Although JUVÉDERM® will encourage the production of new collagen growth, using collagen serums can help maintain these results. Retinol can also help boost your body’s natural collagen production to prolong the effects of JUVÉDERM® fillers.
  6. Eat Well
    Processed sugars and excess salt and fat can cause inflammation in the body that leads to a faster breakdown of the injected JUVÉDERM®. To keep your skin healthy and to extend the effects of JUVÉDERM® for longer, eat a balanced diet with a variety of nutrients from veggies and whole grains, and include healthy fats.
  7. Leave Your Face Alone
    Within the first week after a JUVÉDERM® treatment, do not schedule any facials or face massages. Do not poke, prod, or vigorously scrub the areas with JUVÉDERM® fillers since they will need some time to settle. Treat your face gently to get the best and longest-lasting results from your fillers.

Q: What is the difference between JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX®?
A: BOTOX® treatments immobilize the facial muscle underneath the skin resulting in a smoother appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; whereas, JUVÉDERM® facial fillers promote new collagen growth while restoring the volume of your skin resulting in a more youthful look.

Q: Can BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® be used together?
A: Yes, they can. For optimal skin rejuvenation, both injections can be used to target both static and dynamic wrinkles as well as target different areas of the face.

Q: Is JUVÉDERM® safe?
A: Yes, JUVÉDERM® is Health Canada approved and is safe when administered by an injection professional. You should not receive JUVÉDERM® if you are allergic, are on medication that prolongs bleeding, have a bleeding disorder, have a history of scarring or a pigmentation disorder, or are under 18.
