JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
Length of treatment:
Approximately 30-45 minutes, depending upon number of injections required to correct the target areas.
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is generally well tolerated. Most side effects are mild to moderate in nature and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are generally biocompatible, which means allergy skin testing is not required prior to treatment.
If you’re considering treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel, your healthcare professional should ask about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel for facial wrinkles and folds should not be used in patients who have:
- Severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies
- A history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins
- JUVÉDERM® XC should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to Lidocaine
JUVÉDERM® XC is the ONLY Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year with one treatment (did we just say a year?). That’s right, up to a year.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in your skin. The lack of Hyaluronic Acid causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds — like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the Hyaluronic Acid your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with Lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With JUVÉDERM® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
JUVÉDERM® XC comes in two formulations: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC. We will determine the best for you.
