JUVÉDERM® XC Process
JUVÉDERM XC dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment for the folds around your nose and mouth and other facial wrinkles. When you come to our office, our doctor will meet with you and answer any questions you may have.
He/She will then tailor your treatment to your unique needs using one of the two available JUVÉDERM XC formulations. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC provides versatility in contouring and adding volume to facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is a more robust formulation to smooth and correct deeper folds and wrinkles.
Using a fine needle, our doctor will ease JUVÉDERM XC under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis, your skin's inner layer. This will add volume and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds instantly. The entire injection process takes about 15 minutes.
You may experience some minor discomfort before and after the injection, but the smooth consistency of JUVÉDERM XC allows our doctor to administer the gel easily and smoothly, and the gel is now formulated with the common anesthetic lidocaine to enhance the comfort of the treatment experience.
With JUVÉDERM XC, you should be able to get back to your daily routine immediately after your appointment. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature and typically last seven days or less. And JUVÉDERM XC is the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to one year with only one treatment.
