What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® 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). JUVÉDERM® XC comes in two formulations: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC.
How does JUVÉDERM® work for wrinkles?
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gels are indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, aka smile lines or parentheses). JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is available in two formulations to allow your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to your unique needs. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
Are there any side-effects?
Most side effects are mild or 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 injections 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.
How soon will I see the results?
JUVÉDERM® instantly restores your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles.
How long does the effect of a Juvéderm treatment last?
JUVÉDERM® XC is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved* to last up to 1 year after initial treatment. Correction is temporary, therefore touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.
