Juvéderm® XC is
an injectable gel that smoothes away wrinkles and folds in
your skin, bringing it back its normal volume. It
works equally well for men and women.
In 2010, the FDA approved Juvéderm® XC formulated with the local anesthetic lidocaine to provide patients with:
a more comfortable injection experience when compared to the non-lidocaine formulation.
potentially less time spent in the physician's office.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC contain 0.3% preservative-free lidocaine and numb the treatment area within seconds, potentially reducing the need for an additional anesthetic. Juvéderm® XC products provide the same smooth, long-lasting results as demonstrated with existing Juvéderm® products.
The Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers include Juvéderm® Ultra and Juvéderm® Ultra XC with lidocaine, formulations for versatility in contouring and volumizing of facial wrinkles and folds; and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC with lidocaine, more robust formulations for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles.
Juvéderm® XC is the first FDA HA injection proven effective with no risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring keloids. This is of interest to our patients with dark skin who are particulartly susceptible to keloids.
As your skin ages, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance, called hyaluronic acid (or HA for short). The loss of HA causes wrinkles and folds, like those (parentheses) lines around your mouth. Juvéderm® XC is biologically identical to the natural HA in your body.
Juvéderm® XC is a smooth-consistency HA gel- the only HA filler that is FDA approved to last up to one year. A Juvéderm® XC treatment consists of an office visit where the injectable gel is eased under the skin to instantly smooth facial wrinkles and folds. The results can be seen immediately!
Juvéderm® XC injectable gel is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds including nasolabial folds. There may be mild or moderate side effects, so be sure to ask your physician for complete information.
Juvéderm® XC is effective alone, or as a compliment to Botox® Cosmetic
