If you are a patient who is unsatisfied with the way you look due to sunken facial features, thin lips, or moderate to severe facial creases, then Juvederm XC is for you. It is a colorless injectable dermal filler that is a derivative of the body’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, making it a great hypoallergenic option to restore facial volume and smooth wrinkles. Junederm XC is administered into the facial tissues, particularly on the areas around the patient’s nose and mouth. The added volume smooths out wrinkles and improves the contours of the face.
Juvederm® Frequently Asked Questions
How does Juvederm XC work?
When injected into an area, Juvederm XC augments the support structure underneath the skin and facial tissue to effectively reinforce the natural framework. As a derivative of hyaluronic acid, it not only plumps up the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it stimulates the production of natural collagen in the lower skin layers to produce a more natural looking result. Juvederm XC contains the anesthetic agent lidocaine, which results in a less painful administration for the patient.
What should I expect from Juvederm XC administration?
Juvederm XC is injected in small amounts directly into the facial tissues to get rid of the wrinkles, facial lines, and where additional volume is needed. After the injection, Juvederm XC supplements the underlying kin structure and smooths away the wrinkle or instantly plumps up sunken regions of the face. The entire procedure will take between 30 to 45 minutes to complete, depending on the extent of the area being treated.
How long Juvederm XC last?
The results are typically long lasting. One treatment is expected to last between nine months to one year before re-treatment is required.
What are the side effects of Juvederm XC?
The most common side effect is swelling and bruising at the injection site, which is expected to fully improve within 7 days from the procedure. Immediately after the injection, lumps may be evident at the injection site but can be easily remedied by gently massaging the area to distribute the drug evenly across the treated area.
