Administering Juvéderm

At your scheduled appointment, the face is thoroughly cleansed and the targeted treatment areas are marked. A local anesthesia may be applied, but this is not always necessary as Juvéderm already contains a numbing solution within it. The filler is then injected directly into the skin with a fine needle. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied to the area. This technique is repeated until all marked areas have been injected. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and seeing some visible redness in the injection sites, there are typically no side effects. You will likely be able to return to your normal daily activities or work following your 15 to 30-minute Juvéderm procedure.
