Nobody wants to look old, and age usually starts showing on the face. That is why there are cosmetic procedures that restore the youthfulness on our face. One such cosmetic treatment is Juvederm Beverly Hills. This is one of the newest treatments today. It is above all others since it can treat not only moderate wrinkles and creases but also those which are severe. It is usually administered to those having skin aging problems like droopy cheeks and nasolabial folds (these are those parentheses-looking folds on either side of your mouth). The cosmetic product comes in two varieties: the Juvederm Ultra and the Juvederm Ultra Plus. The latter is used by a practitioner for severe wrinkle and fold problems.

If you already decided to have a Juvederm Beverly Hills treatment, the following are some things that you need to know before, during and after treatment.

Since the treatment is invasive (that is, it is administered through an injection), a week before the treatment, you must not take any anti-inflammatory drugs, excessive amount of vitamin E and aspirin. This is to help prevent excessive bleeding on the areas to be treated. Also, drinking alcoholic beverages before the treatment may also increase the possibility of swelling. Moreover, do not even think of having this treatment if you are bearing a child or is breastfeeding one. No licensed physician will ever allow you to be treated as it may be harmful to your child. Although Juvederm Beverly Hills uses hyaluronic acid (which is naturally produced by our body), the whole procedure is not for a baby to be involved in.

During the treatment, expect to be injected by a gel which contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that adds volume and hydrates the skin. There is little to no pain which lingers for only quite sometime. That is why anesthesia is not really necessary although the practitioner might administer one. The procedure is fast, taking only about fifteen minutes.

Right after the procedure, injection-related side effects may occur such as redness and pain. These can be relieved by putting an ice pack on the affected area but for a very short period only. And to not worsen the swelling, avoid intense heat all the time and avoid frequent touching of the treated area for a couple of days. These side effects usually last for under a week only, and even will get better. As much as possible, avoid any other skin treatments one week after the Juvederm Beverly Hills treatment.

As a whole, there is really nothing massive to be alarmed about before, during, and after treatment. The whole process is relatively safe and as long as the spa or clinic is using an authentic Juvederm Beverly Hills and the physician is licensed and is an expert, you have nothing to worry about. All you have to do is watch as you reclaim your youthfulness. And if it does fade once again, you can always go back to the spa and have a follow-up treatment.
