Considering Juvederm: 3 Things You May Not Know
- Posted on: Aug 15 2015
As a non-invasive approach to a younger looking you, facial fillers are one of the most popular ways to enhance your appearance without having to go under the knife. However, if you’re weary of facial fillers such as Juvederm, there are a few things to consider.
It’s Not Permanent
Unlike lip implants, lip fillers such as Juvederm aren’t permanent. And although they can last for the upwards of a year, if you’re unhappy with the results or miss your smaller pout, you won’t have it for forever. So, it’s safe to say that Juvederm is a filler that is worth trying out at least once in your life.
It’s Not Just for Lips
Although predominantly used to plump lips and smooth out any lip wrinkles, Juvederm is not just meant for lips. In fact, much how Botox is used for the eyes up, Juvederm is used for the nose down. Meaning that you can target things such as an increase in smile lines around your mouth or you can help to smooth out any wrinkles that might be starting to produce around your lips.
It’s Virtually Pain-Free
Because facial fillers like Botox and Juvederm are injected by using a very small needle, they are virtually pain free. In fact, if you want, you can get Juvederm done on your lunch break. Just know that some patients experience slight bruising and swelling after the injection site, so if you don’t want your friends and coworkers to notice, you might want to skip work for the rest of the day.
As an added tip, by applying a small, soft ice pack to the injection site, you can help to reduce any pain or inflammation that you might be experiencing. Also, ask your doctor about any over-the-counter pain medication you can take to help alleviate the swelling.
As a fun way to make your lips a little fuller and your smile lines a little less noticeable, Juvederm is a non-permanent and virtually pain free filler.
