What is Juvéderm® XC?

When you look in the mirror, are you noticing lines and wrinkles that weren’t there before? While this is a normal part of the aging process, it can cause many individuals to look older than they feel. If you are looking to smooth these lines for a refreshed appearance, Juvéderm® XC can help!

Juvéderm® XC is a dermal filler created to correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as smile lines or parentheses lines around the mouth and nose. It is created with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture to keep your skin moist and supple. When injected into the skin, this filler plumps lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Juvéderm® XC can help to address:

  • Lines that develop along the sides of the mouth, also called smile lines.
  • Lines and wrinkles around the nose.

Juvéderm® XC Candidates

Healthy adults 21 years and older who would like to achieve a more youthful appearance by smoothing facial lines and wrinkles can often benefit from Juvéderm® XC. Be sure to let your injector know if you are pregnant or nursing, have a history of keloid scarring, or have experienced severe allergies before, as this treatment may not be right for you. In order to determine if you are a good candidate, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.

The Juvéderm® XC Treatment

During your Juvéderm® XC treatment, we will begin by applying a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area, ensuring that you are totally comfortable during your injection. Next, a very fine needle will be used to inject the filler into the designated areas. Treatment time may vary depending on the amount of correction desired and can last anywhere from 15-60 minutes.

Results will be noticeable directly after treatment, and you will be able to notice a smoothness to your skin, as well as a firmer look.

What to Expect Following Juvéderm® XC

Following your treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and itching at the injection site. These effects will resolve with time. While there is no downtime needed after treatment, we recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise and sun/heat exposure for 24 hours for the best outcomes. The results from Juvéderm® XC are long-lasting and can last up to one year.

 I was very nervous to get lip fillers but Nicole Devos did an amazing job. She was very informative during the consultation and made my lips look exactly what I imagined and hoped for. I highly recommend her!
