JUVEDERM is the only HA filler FDA approved to last up to one year. Ask your physician how you can get long-lasting results with JUVEDERM. JUVEDERM XC injectable gel is a smooth consistency gel dermal filler that helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). JUVEDERM XC comes in two formulations – JUVEDERM Ultra XC & JUVEDERM Ultra Plus XC.
How is JUVEDERM XC Injectable Gel Used in Treatment?
Your healthcare provider eases JUVEDERM XC injectable gel into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in the augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to servere facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures). JUVEDERM XC temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
Is Treatment With JUVEDERM XC Injectable Gel Painful?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency gel of JUVEDERM XC allows your doctor to administer it easily and smoothly. And, JUVEDERM XC is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Additionally, JUVEDERM XC is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. Your doctor may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize disc.
Does the Correction Last Forever?
No. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.
