Juvéderm® XC Common Treatment Areas: smile lines (nasolabial folds or “parentheses”), marionette lines, vertical lip lines, lip corners, lip, eye wells, cheeks
Juvéderm® XC is dermal filler that smooths moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Over the years as we age, our body produces less of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid, and as a result, facial wrinkles and folds begin to form. Juvéderm® XC essentially replaces the hyaluronic acid that’s been lost and effectively restores volume again to create a fuller, smoother appearance.
Are Juvéderm® XC treatments safe?
Juvéderm® XC is a safe injectable dermal filler.
If you have severe allergies or a history of severe allergies, you should not use this product. You should also not use this product if you have allergies to lidocaine or the proteins used to make hyaluronic acid.
When will I see results?
Results are visible immediately and generally last 12-18 months.
Are Juvéderm® XC treatments painful?
Juvéderm® XC dermal filler is injected into the skin using a fine needle resulting in minimal pain. Because Juvéderm® XC is formulated with lidocaine to minimize discomfort, anesthesia is not required. If you have skin sensitivity, ice or topical lidocaine may be used.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects are temporary bruising or redness at the injection site. Like any other medical procedure, it does have some risks but serious side effects are rare.
Is there any downtime or restrictions?
Within the first 24 hours, you should minimize your exposure to extensive sun or heat and avoid any activities where risk or injury to the treatment area can occur. You may return to your normal activities after 24 hours.
How often should I get Juvéderm® XC?
We recommend you get Juvéderm® XC once every 12-18 months to maintain the optimal results.
