Juvederm Voluma Before And After
Prevent swelling: After any surgical procedure or filler it is best to keep the heart rate normal and not lie in the sun, use a sauna, whirlpool or exercise. Any of these activities will increase the blood pressure and lead to increased swelling. Swelling will prolong the time for the procedure to look really great. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had Voluma under my eyes/cheeks and juvederm ultra + injected into my nasal labial folds a couple of days ago, how can I help them smooth out?
Juvederm is a bit thicker preparation and good for filling in deeper areas. The product is deposited in the dermis. If you use this in a fine line it will have to be very superficial and will make a blue line appear.
Belotero is designed to gointo fine lines of the lip and also deeper wrinkles. It can be delivered superficially without blue formation Read more
Juvederm: Only juvederm is fda approved and legal in the us. Aquamid has gone through clinical trials but has not been approved for any use in the us. Aquamid may provide long-term or permanent correction as opposed to juvederm, which lasts only several months. However, any physician who offers to inject aquamid (as of today, 9/29/13) is violating federal law- beware! Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Unlikely: Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a natural component of skin. Because of this, your body should see it the same way it does all the rest of the hyaluronic acid in your body. The manufacturing process, however, involves the use of bacteria to produce the hyaluronic acid. You may be allergic to bacterial proteins that are still contained in Juvederm.

I would wait to use: Usually when being treated with peg interferon and ribavirin, you become immunosuppresed (i.e. Low immune system), so any other injections like juvederm can lead to local inflammation/skin reactions, infections and confound the other symptoms that you might be experiencing while undergoing treatment. I would wait to use juvederm until you finish your treatment therapy. Read more
Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .
Juvederm can move a bit from the injection site, but not far. If you put pressure on the area you can displace it to the sides a bit and smooth it out (this can be helpful if you have lumps or bumps afterward). It does not move to other areas of the face or body because of connective tissues under the skin.

I was given hyaluronidase injections for lumpy juvederm. The areas are still hard and lumpy but have gone down a little. Do I need more?
I would wait: Without seeing or feeling it, I cannot confidently say you would need more or not. After filler injections (juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) or perlane), feeling some lumpiness is common, but it should not be visible. If it is not visible, leave it alone. If it is visible, massaging it gently 30 sec twice daily helps to soften it. Also, fillers are also firm for 1-2 weeks after injecting, then they soften. Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Will I see the final results of juvederm as soon as the swelling goes away? I understand i'll see some results right away, but does juvederm need any extra time to settle in to its final position or shape? .
Juvederm: I use both injectable fillers and fat grafting to the lips to give them a fuller, softer appearance. Hyaluronic acids such as Juvederm and Restylane (dermal fillers) temporarily plump the lips and can last approximately six months to a year depending on the filler. Fat grafts are obtained from a patient's own fat through liposuctioning areas such as the inner thighs or abdomen and carefully injecting in the lips. Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
6-18 months: Juvederm is an "HA" (hyaluronic acid) filler that is offered in the US as "ultra" and "ultra plus". Ultra is more supple and typically used for thin skin areas (tear trough, lips, nose), whereas ultra plus is more robust and used in thicker skin areas (nasal folds, cheeks, chin). In my experience ultra will provide 6-9 months of correction compared to 9-18 with ultra plus. Hope this helps! Read moreSee 18 more doctor answers
