Are hot temperatures also restricted after a Juvederm treatment? Why?
How Long Do You Have to Keep Your Face out of the Cold Weather After Juvederm?

It all depends....
cold weather isn't a problem...in fact you can put an ice cube on the area to prevent swelling and bruising...heat may be another story...heat causes the blood vessels to dilate and if the walls of the small vessels were nicked by the needle, this may lead to an increase in swelling or leaking of fluid into the skin and of course bruising...exactly what you don't want...so it's probably a good idea to avoid anything terribly hot for a short while after treatment...that's why exercise and saunas and even alcohol might best be avoided until the next day...it's not mandatory, just common sense...you want to optimize your results so why take any increase in risk...even if it's only a little bit...
No temperature restrictions for fillers
There are no temperature restrictions - hot or cold - for fillers. I live in Las Vegas and inject people when it's 115 degrees outside and it's all good. You should be fine to be in any environment and return to any normal activities after fillers are done.
How Long Do I Keep my Face out of the Cold Weather After Juvederm?
I don't give either temperature or activity restrictions to any of my filler patients and I live in Scottsdale, AZ. The only post treatment recommendation I do make is for patient's to do some light icing for the first few days as this often speeds recovery and decreases swelling. I also routinely recommend patient's avoid aspirin or ibuprofen, vit E, and fish oil as this can cause slight increased chance in bruising after treatment. Hope that helps!

Restrictions after Juvederm injections
I do not give my patients any restrictions after Juvederm injections. My office is in Vermont which gets its share of cold winters and I have yet to see any problems from cold weather exposure after Juvederm injections.
Juvederm and Temperature Restrictions
There are no temperature restrictions after receiving Juvederm treatments. You should probably avoid skiing/climbing Everest or sitting in a sauna on the day of your treatment as you would not want to exacerbate any swelling or bruising, but other than real extremes, anything goes!
