4 Important Tips to Follow for Your Juvéderm Aftercare
For the better part of the last decade, Juvéderm has easily been one of, if not the most popular dermal filler available on the market today. And at Aesthetic Solutions, the top practice for Juvéderm Queens, NY has to offer, they have helped countless clients deal with a wide variety of cosmetic issues using this popular hyaluronic acid based dermal filler. The thing that really sets Juvéderm apart from other options for fillers, is its hyaluronic acid composition and its versatility. Well its versatility certainly comes from being a hyaluronic acid filler, but it still is highly effective for treating issues ranging from normal forehead wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and smile lines, to working as a top-rated lip filler, under-eye bag treatment, and even helping to treat acne scars! And because of their trust in Juvéderm Queens, NY medical spa Aesthetic Solutions will offer it to patients for almost anything, and considering its all-natural, skin-safe HA base, regardless of what your issues might be, Juvéderm is definitely worth a try! Plus, when administered by a well-trained aesthetic professional, the treatment is extremely safe and reliable for both wrinkle relief as well as lip injections. However, despite the safety and reliability of Juvéderm, there are some important instructions patients must follow, whether they are being treated for their lips, or other wrinkle issues. To help you to achieve the best results from your Juvéderm treatment, here are some important tips to be aware of.
· Don’t Drink Alcohol!
This is an absolute must for anyone who is looking to be treated with Juvéderm for either lip enhancement or facial wrinkle reduction. Avoid consuming alcohol, at least 3 to 5 days before your appointment, AND for at least 24 hours after! For any treatment in which there will be a shot performed or an incision made, the consumption of alcohol makes your blood more viscous and prevents it from clotting properly, therefore it will prevent the injection site from healing properly right away, causing it to take longer for the blood to clot and essentially stop. Plus, avoiding alcohol means less bleeding and bruising overall. Also, in the case of lip injections it will dehydrate you and cause excess inflammation which will mean extra swelling for your lips, something you absolutely do not need more of.
· Avoid Certain Pain Relievers, Meds, and Supplements
When it comes to Juvéderm Queens, NY medical spa Aesthetic Solutions warns patients to avoid taking any drugs, pain killers, and certain supplements before and after the procedure. Using the same blood thinning principle as with alcohol, certain supplements such as fish oils, omega-3s, aspirin, ibuprofen, narcotic pain killers like oxycodone, and even a diet high in garlic, can cause the blood to become thinner and prevent clotting and thus healing.
· Avoid Strenuous Exercise and Certain Physical Activities
One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that they are fine to take part in a normal workout or jog. This is not a good idea, whether you’ve just gotten Juvéderm lip injections or treatment for your forehead wrinkles, exercise can cause you to not only damage your face but cause unnecessary sweating and blood circulation to the area. Its just not a good idea at all.
· Elevate the Face
Especially important during the night, after any treatment with Juvéderm Queens, NY medical spa Aesthetic Solutions always recommends patients sleep with an extra pillow or two, as this will keep their head elevated during the night and reduce swelling, and force the heart to pump blood into the area to fight against gravity, this speeds up your overall healing.
