Microdermabrasion after Juvederm

Microdermabrasion shouldn't have any negative effect on your filler treatment. However, just make sure to wait a bit between your treatments to reduce the risk of infection.

Microderm and fillers

Microdermabrasion performed after fillers should not affect the filler.  Fillers, such as juvederm, are placed in the deep dermis or dermal-subcutaneous junction (and sometimes deeper), not at the surface of the skin.  However, It's wise to make sure skin is completely healed before performing any micodermabrasion.  Breaks in the skin can lead to infection, possible hyperpigmentation, and scarring.  Microdermabrasion improves the texture and overall look of the skin.  As with any treatment, it's best to consult with the physician in their office.

Microdermabrasion is safe after fillers

If the treatment is done a few days after the fillers then there shouldn't be any problem. When we do microdermabrasion in my office we don't press down so hard on the tissue that it would really be an issue. Be aware that the exfoliation creates the best results when given as a series of treatments at least 3 to 4 weeks apart.

Good luck!

Microdermabrasion After Juvederm

Microdermabrasion after a Juvederm injection should not cause any harm to your Juvederm treatment. However, you could have a good deal of unnecessary inflammation to the area and theoretically increase your risk of infection. Might as well wait a few days after your Juvederm injection before having a microdermabrasion.
