Certified women's health care nurse practitioner Patience Peale wants to ensure that every patient gets the most out of JUVÉDERM treatment and recovery time. For this reason, patients should avoid massaging their face for at least two weeks. Each person heals differently, but their body may need up to 2 weeks to fully integrate the injected product. Patience is vital during this process.
The day after the procedure, patients can gently touch and massage the area. If the patient begins to notice the early formation of nodules from the product build-up, he can gently massage the area. Many of the injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body, which will be absorbed by the body over time regardless of exercise.
