Once JUVÉDERM® is absorbed by your body, you can’t massage it away.
Simply rubbing your eyes when they itch or massaging your tear troughs when you take off makeup is not going to undo the effects of your JUVÉDERM®. When JUVÉDERM® is injected into your tissue, it’s absorbed by the body and can’t be undone through simple movements like the ones you describe. Excessive rubbing can certainly cause JUVÉDERM® to dissolve more rapidly, although I don’t consider rubbing itchy eyes or removing makeup to fall into this category. JUVÉDERM® can last up to 6 months in some people, although this can vary according to a number of factors. If you feel that you’re already in need of a touch-up, consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon for the best results.
When rubbing my eye am I massaging out the JVD in tear troughs?
Thank you for your excellent question. Because filler material becomes incorporated into your body's tissues it is not possible to massage out the product with rubbing your eyes or removing makeup. If appropriately treated at the initial appointment most patients do not need a touch up for approximately 6 months. Hope this helps.
The filler has incorporated into the tissues by now so there is no way of massaging it out when you wipe off your eye makeup.
Hello, and thanks for your question. Lightly removing your make-up should not affect the filler at all. Depending on the product used (I typically prefer Restylane), I find that most individuals require more volume every 6-12 months. If you already feel as though you need a touch-up you likely were underrated to begin with, or you're quickly metabolizing the HA. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
Tear trough filler "rubbing"
It is not recommended that you rub this are vigorously. After about a week, it is fully integrated into your tissues and is hard to move at that point. I don't recommend Juvederm for this area because it causes prolonged edema in some cases. Most people require tough ups every 6-12 months. I use Restylane for this.
When rubbing my eye, for example when taking off eye make up, am I massaging out the juvederm in tear troughs?
Thanks for your query.Juvederm is placed deep near bone when doing the tear trough area so light massaging and removal of make up wont disturb it. Hope it helps.
All The Best
Can rubbing the eyelid remove injected Juvederm
Thank you for sharing your question. Normal rubbing of your eyelids will not cause the filler to migrate or dissolve. Excessive rubbing can cause it to dissapate more rapidly. I hope this helps. Good luck,
Tear Trough Fillers -- Try Cannulas, Voluma/Belotero/Restylane
You cannot "rub" the filler out of position unless it was immediately after injection. The filler integrates into the tissue and absorbs water. If you are concerned please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
