How Long Does Juvéderm Last?
One of the most asked questions we get about Juvederm is, how long does it last? It should be noted that not all dermal fillers are made equally and some last longer than others. Juvederm is a longer-lasting filler and all types of Juvederm fillers will typically last 12 months ranging upwards to 24 months. If you’ve specifically been wondering, how long does filler in lips last, you should be pleased to know that you can expect your results to last about 12 months. Choosing a quality dermal filler such as Juvederm is a great way to ensure you get results that last for as long as possible.

Is Juvéderm Safe?
Another top question we receive from our clients relates to the safety of Juvederm treatments. Many patients wonder, is lip filler safe or are there risks to getting Juvederm treatments? It is important to know that Juvederm is approved by the FDA and is safe. Though some patients may experience side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness at the site of injection, these side effects are temporary and mild in nature. Most patients report that these symptoms last less than seven days.
Though Juvéderm is safe, is always important to discuss your medical history with your service provider before treatments. Your service provider will ensure you understand the risks associated with your treatment and know what to expect.

Is It Safe to Have a Juvéderm Injection While Breastfeeding?
If you are breastfeeding it is a good idea to speak with a healthcare provider before obtaining Juvéderm treatments. Though dermal fillers may be safe to have while breastfeeding, it may not be recommended by your primary healthcare provider. In some cases, it may be advised to wait out on getting Juvéderm treatments until after you have stopped breastfeeding as there has not been an extensive amount of research done into the safety of breastfeeding while obtaining Juvéderm injections.
Can You Drink Alcohol After Juvéderm?
When you have your consultation with your service provider, they will ensure that you understand what you cannot do after your treatment. Juvéderm and lip fillers are non-invasive and you won’t have to take time off work after your procedure, but you might want to hold off on drinking alcohol for a bit of time after your procedure. Though it is not dangerous to drink alcohol after Juvéderm treatments, it can lead to an increase in bruising. For the best results with minimal side effects, your provider will recommend that you avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours following your treatment. A small amount of bruising is a normal side effect of lip and dermal fillers but by avoiding alcohol after your procedure you will help to reduce the chances of having highly visible bruising.

Can I Workout After Juvéderm Treatments?
If you have just obtained Juvederm dermal fillers, you might not want to hit the gym right away. Though you shouldn’t expect downtime after a filler treatment, you may wish to avoid heavy exercise for 24-48 hours after your treatment. This is to help ensure that you do not experience an increase in bruising or swelling at the injection site. You can still expect to work, take a walk, or participate in other typical day-to-day activities after your treatments.
How Long After Juvéderm Can I Get A Facial?
Though getting a facial may be a part of your regular beauty routine, you may want to hold off on getting a facial for a little while after obtaining dermal fillers. Your care provider will be able to provide you with a specific timeline based on your skin, but generally speaking, you should wait two weeks before obtaining a facial after filler. This will help to protect your results as your filler should be finished setting at this time.
