Water drinking after juvederm

You do not have to drink any specific amount of water after filler treatment.  You really do not have to do much of anything.

You don’t have to drink a lot of water after being treated with Juvederm

No you don’t have to drink a lot of water after being treated with Juvederm.  Water consumption will not affect your Juvederm results.

Drink lots of water after having Juvederm injections

There is no medical/scientific relationship between water consumption and fillers. But it is good for you, so drink! Result from fillers is dependent upon the type of filler, amounts injected, the injector's experience, NOT water.

Juvederm for the lips does not require drinking a lot of water

you will probably get the same good result from Juvederm injections into the lips regardless of the water you consume. Juvederm will absorb the surrounding water to bulk up its effect.

You do NOT need to drink additional water to bring out the effects of Juvederm

While keeping hydrated is beneficial (especially in the Summer), there is NO EVIDENCE that drinking large amounts of water would influence the appearance of the injected Juvederm in any way. The Juvederm will augment the tissue without such superfluous help.

Hydration after Filler Injection

There is no scientific data that shows drinking water will improve the results of restylane or perlane.

The products do pull in the water to help hydrate the area and achieve the desired results, but drinking excess water I dont think helps.

Drinking extra water not necessary for Juvederm injections

One thing that is confusing is the fact that hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm work by holding on to water, which is one reason they look and feel natural. However, the chemical bonding process that allows this to occur is very strong and not influenced by drinking extra water, or even not drinking enough.
