Juvederm FAQs

Can I wear makeup after Juvederm?

After your Juvederm injections, you can carefully apply makeup. Keep in mind that the treatment area may feel tender for several hours after receiving Juvederm.

Can you drink alcohol after Juvederm?

It is best to avoid drinking alcohol for about 24 hours after receiving Juvederm injections. Alcohol can lead to bruising at the injection site.

Can juvederm be reversed?

As a hyaluronic acid injectable, Juvederm can be dissolved by injecting an enzyme. The results will also naturally dissipate over time as the body metabolizes the product.

Can you get half a syringe of Juvederm?

Most patients require at least one syringe of Juvederm to achieve the intended results, but your doctor may advise using less product depending on your specific needs.

Can juvederm cause blindness?

In rare cases, complications from improper dermal filler injections can include blindness.

What is the recovery from Juvederm?

The recovery time frame from Juvederm is negligible to minimal. Most patients return to work right after their treatment, while a few might observe some swelling or slight bruising which resolves within a week. You may be advised to wear a hat for protection from sunlight and use very little makeup for the first 10 days.

What will be my results like?

Your results are visible immediately after the treatment. Juvederm is the only Hyaluronic acid filler in the USA which is FDA approved for results that last up to a year with a single treatment, though some patients may need treatments every three to four months for maintenance of results. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office.
