Appropriate care after treatment with Juvederm

Unlike the neuromodulators, such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, which may potentially migrate with exercise immediately after injection, there is no such worry with hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm.  You didn't change your result or put yourself in any harm by running after receiving the injection.

Running after Radiesse

Although this may result in increase bruising it probably will not affect your overall result. I typically tell my patients to wait 2-3 days for heavy exercise following fillers such as running especially on hard pavement especially if they have a history of easy bruising.

Running after Juvederm?

   Running after Juvederm probably did not cause any damage.  The increase in blood pressure would increase the likelihood for bruising and swelling but should not change the areas of filler deposition.

I have no issue with people doing aerobic exercises after fillers like juvederm, restylane or radiesse. I would definitely discourage boxing, and even anerobic exercises like weight lifting can cause you to strain your muscles excessively which could theoretically move the filler a little bit. I'd also discourage jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms for 48hrs as they can cause increased swelling and potentially more bruising.

Exercising after Juvederm is unlikely to cause problems

I do not believe that exercise after Juvederm would migrate the product in the same way that firm pressure or massage might. I doubt you did any real harm.

Running after Juvederm should not cause any issue. The filler will not migrate, and stays localized to the area it was injected. I would recommend visiting your physician who performed the injections regarding any immediate concerns. Thank you and I hope this helps!

Running does not affect Juvederm.

Running after Juvederm injections is not a problem.  Just make sure you do not massage the areas right after the injections.  If you have any concerns, please see your injector.

Dear emma2,

  • If it still looks good, you are fine
  • There usually is no issue with exercising afterwards

Best regards,

Is excercise a problem after Juvederm?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The only issue with exercise immediately after Juvederm is that if you overheat it may cause more swelling and bleeding.  It won't hurt the Juvederm directly. No harm done!

The only restriction that I give my patients is that they don't press hard on areas that have filler or Botox immediately after it's done. Exercise is fine. I'd say if you "didn't know about it" then it's not a rule your injector has either.
