What to Expect During Treatment
Because Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can make an appointment to stop by for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice-and get right back to your life. Here’s what to expect when you visit:
Before you go: We recommend that you avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), for at least a week prior to treatment in order to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
When you arrive: If this is your first visit, your healthcare professional at our medical spa in San Jose will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take and will tell you more about wrinkle treatment with Juvéderm™. The juvéderm ™injectable gel does not require an allergy test.
Determining your treatment needs: Your healthcare professional will examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles and folds to determine your treatment. The juvéderm ™ injectable gel is available in two formulations-Juvéderm™Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, andJuvéderm™ Ultra Plus, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows your healthcare professional to better tailor treatment to your unique needs. They may even take pre-treatment photographs so you can see the difference after treatment!
Before the procedure: Although anesthesia is not required, your healthcare professional may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.
The procedure: Your healthcare professional will ease the Juvéderm™ injectable gel under your skin to augment, or fill wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, your healthcare professional may gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes.
