Juvederm XC®

Juvederm®

Juvederm® is a filler made from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar which binds to water and gives the skin a natural plumpness. Juvederm Ultra can be used to correct moderate wrinkles on the face and can be used to add fullness to the lips. Juvederm® Ultra Plus is a denser formulation which can be used to improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles. Juvederm® is injected underneath the skin to improve fine lines, hollows and creases. Topical anesthetics may be applied to the treated area prior to injection to minimize discomfort.

Juvederm ®XC contains an anesthetic in the syringe which minimizes discomfort and often allows the procedure to be performed without having to apply a topical anesthetic.

Is allergy testing necessary prior to Juvederm® treatment?

What are the potential side effects of Juvederm® treatment?

Juvederm® can cause redness or swelling for 1-2 days after treatment. Juvederm® injections into the skin can also result in bruising which can take up to a week to resolve.

When will I see results?

How long will the results last?

Juvederm® lasts approximately 4 to 9 months. Its formulation is supposed to make it last longer than other hyaluronic acid products but this has yet to be widely confirmed.
