What is the Juvederm procedure like?
A Juvéderm injection is relatively painless, and the added anesthetic reduces the pain potential even more.
What about recovery?
Some people experience slight discomfort for a few days after the injection. There may be some pain or tenderness at the site of the injection, which goes away in less than seven days.
Dr. Castrellon will ask you about your current medications, allergies, pregnancy and other factors that may indicate whether or not an injection is a safe idea.
Why should I get Juviderm?
There are misconceptions about fillers including Juvéderm, like about what they do and who gets them. In reality, the human body, including the face, loses subcutaneous fat as we it ages. Because of this, facial muscles are closer to the skin and eventually create smile lines and crow’s feet. The skin also stretches, further distorting appearance. A Juvéderm injection is meant to restore a more vibrant look to those who are experiencing the beginning signs of aging.
