Downtime duration and symptoms of Jubeluk

The length of downtime and symptoms of Jubelq are described.

Length of downtime

Downtime for Jubelq is basically 24 hours.

Symptoms of downtime in Jubeluk

Jubelq has the following downtime symptoms

  • Pain
  • blush
  • swelling
  • edema
  • Temporary protuberance
  • internal hemorrhage

JUVELUX is a procedure in which a formulation is injected with a needle. As with other injection treatments, normal reactions may include redness, soreness, and bumps at the injection site, but most will return to normal in about 24 hours.

Internal bleeding may also occur at the site of the needle puncture. Initially, internal bleeding is reddish-purple in color, but it gradually turns yellow while becoming thinner and less noticeable, and fades over 10-14 days. Internal bleeding can be covered with concealer or other makeup.

The mild and transient nature of JUVELUX's downtime symptoms is described in the following research article, "Injection of PDLLA (≈JUVELUX's component material) for lower eyelid rejuvenation in over 100 Taiwanese patients".

Our filler choice is injectable poly-d,l-lactic acid (PDLLA; AestheFill; REGEN). (The total amount of filler injection is not more than 2 ml on each side. (...)Only some mild and transient post-injection complications such as edema, erythema, and ecchymosis were found.

How to spend the downtime period and what to expect

Here are some tips on how to spend the downtime period and what to expect.

Do not touch the treatment area

Because of the delicate condition of the affected area after the Jubeluk procedure, keep it clean and avoid touching it unnecessarily.

Routes of infection include contaminated drugs, needles, and indigenous bacteria. Because of the presence of indigenous bacteria on the skin, the risk of infection is not zero even with clean needles and drugs.

Restrictions on bathing and exercise.

After the Jubeluk procedure, there are restrictions on bathing and exercise.

  • Bathing: Possible from the next day
  • Sauna, strenuous exercise, beauty treatments, and alcohol consumption: possible after approx.

Although the needle wounds are visually small, the body is in the process of healing from the wounds and will have downtime symptoms as a normal reaction. All of these symptoms will subside over time, but excessive warmth may cause more severe symptoms. Please refrain from any activity that stimulates blood circulation, as this may increase swelling and internal bleeding.

Ensure moisturizing and UV protection.

During the downtime of Jubeluk, be sure to keep your skin moisturized and protected from UV rays.

Dryness leads to all kinds of skin problems, and UV rays are considered to be 80% of the causes of aging. The barrier function of the skin after treatment is reduced, making it drier than usual and more susceptible to external damage such as ultraviolet rays. Use hats and parasols.

Measures to reduce downtime symptoms

Here are some measures patients can take on their own to reduce downtime symptoms.

Pain and swelling should be cooled.

The appearance of downtime symptoms varies from person to person, but if pain and swelling are painful or noticeable and bothersome, intermittent cooling may help alleviate them. However, too much continuous cooling may cause frostbite. Wrap the coolant in a towel and take care not to cool the area for more than 20 minutes at a time.

If pain and swelling gradually increase, consult the clinic as infection may have occurred.

Observe life precautions

To avoid prolonged downtime, observe the following lifestyle precautions.

  • Bathing is allowed from the next day.
  • Avoid sauna and other activities that stimulate blood circulation for about a week.
  • Ensure moisturizing and UV protection.
  • Avoid touching the affected area as much as possible and keep items that come in contact with the skin clean.

Makeup and skin care can be applied immediately after the procedure, and showering is allowed on the same day. Do not overheat your body and protect it from external factors such as dryness and ultraviolet rays.


The following are answers to frequently asked questions about downtime for Jubelq.
