How are Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma™ injections Performed?
Prior to injections, Dr. Wray, her physician assistant Natalie Roseman, or her nurse injector, Katie Vaughan, will evaluate the patient’s overall health and discuss areas of concern for the patient. From there, your healthcare provider will establish a treatment plan with you and may also combine the procedure with BOTOX ® Cosmetic or other injectable fillers to customize your rejuvenation experience.
Voluma™ and Juvederm® are injected under the skin using a fine needle and there may be a degree of discomfort associated with the procedure. Juvederm Voluma™ XC and Juvederm® XC and Ultra XC contain lidocaine so the discomfort should be minimized as the injectable gel is administered.
Preparing for your Juvederm® and/or Juvederm Voluma™ treatment:
In order to keep possible bruising to a minimum, it is helpful to avoid medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or other NSAIDs for 2 weeks prior to your injections. Avoiding alcohol use for up to 48 hours prior to your injections could limit bruising as well.
You can expect swelling and some redness at the injection sites. Depending on your procedure, there could be bruising. Camouflage makeup can be used and is available for purchase in our office. Ice packs will help alleviate any temporary discomfort and help with the temporary swelling and bruising.
