What Should I Expect With a Juvéderm Treatment?

Juvéderm injections are performed on an outpatient basis in a quick, minimally-invasive procedure. Dr. Kim marks the treatment areas and performs the injections using tiny needles or blunt cannulas. Lidocaine contained in Juvéderm fillers helps minimize discomfort during the procedure.

What Is Recovery Like after Juvéderm?

There is little to no recovery time after Juvéderm injections.

You will be advised to avoid sun exposure, wearing makeup, alcohol consumption, and strenuous activities for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

You can expect to experience some swelling and bruising, which will begin to subside within a few days. For this reason, if you are getting Juvéderm in Portland for an upcoming event, be sure to leave sufficient time for the bruising to completely subside.
