Juvederm Pre & Post-Care Instructions

Juvederm Pre & Post-Care Instructions

Pre-Care Instructions:
 
  • Juvederm Dermal fillers should not be used in patients who are pregnant, nursing, trying to get pregnant, have experienced this hypersensitivity in the past, those with severe allergies, and should not be used in areas of active inflammation or infection (cysts, pimples, rash). 
  • Avoid applying any irritating chemical or irritating soap to area for the week prior.  Do not wear make-up to treatment.  Discuss with Dr. Seiler if you have had any recent procedure (cosmetic, surgery, laser, or other) or any recent illness. 
 
Post-Care Instructions:
 
  • Redness/swelling is normal for a few days to a week.  Real results can be expected at 4 weeks (after all swelling has resolved).
  • Do not rub the area treated.
  • Gently clean the area twice daily with mild soap.  Aloe gel can also be used.
  • Avoid irritants (glycolics, acid, retinoids, etc.) until all redness/swelling resolves.
  • You may apply cool compresses/ice for 15 minutes/hour for comfort.
  • Make-up may be used as long as skin is not broken or irritated.
  • Avoid sun or hot water for 24 hours or until swelling resolves.
  • Avoid use of aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen), St. John’s Wort, and high doses of vitamin E for one week.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Juvederm works by absorption of water and expansion to give full result.  This typically takes 4 weeks to peak.  Therefore, Dr. Seiler will likely not re-inject or add any Juvederm until that time. 
  • However, Dr. Seiler is happy to see you at any time with any questions or concerns.
  • You should immediately notify Seiler Skin and Dr. Seiler if you have any questions or concerns, or see any signs of problems (severe or extended pain, redness, swelling, bruising, lumpiness, sign of infection, blood supply compromise, or other).  Signs of blood supply compromise include blanching or whitening/darkening/blackening of the skin, any discoloration, pain, or skin break/sloughing. 
It is important you understand the instructions and know to call Seiler Skin and Dr. Seiler immediately if you have any questions or concerns or see any of the above warning signs of problem.  205-870-0204 or 205-873-2340.
