If you are thinking of using Houston Juvederm for wrinkle removal, your cosmetic surgeon or Houston medical spa will do so after asking you your medical history. Inform your doctor about any allergies or medications you take so that your doctor will be able to decide if it safe for you to use Juvederm.
You will also have to inform your doctor if you are taking any medication that will prolong bleeding like aspirin or non-steroidal anti inflammatories (NSAID)s. This is because you have to stop them at least a week before your Juvederm treatment to reduce the risks of bruising and bleeding at injection site.
Besides stopping NSAIDs, you have to avoid strenuous exercise, consumption of alcoholic beverages and giving your skin extended exposure to sun or heat for at least 24 hours after your Juvederm treatment.
The actual process
There is a chance of experiencing some pain, swelling, bruising, firmness, tenderness and temporary redness at the injection sites. However, they are all mild and moderate in nature and will disappear within a week’s time.
If there is any swelling, just apply an ice pack for some relief. However, if there is any redness or swelling, or any other symptom that worries you, inform your doctor about it. Don’t wear any makeup on the treated regions until your doctor advises you to do so.
