What is Juvederm XC?

Juvederm® XC

Juvederm® XC is at the cutting edge of dermal filler technologies. This solution is currently the only FDA-approved filler that is hyaluronic acid-based and intended for the treatment of volume loss across the mid-face region. Just a single treatment with Juvederm® XC can produce immediate and impressive changes across the visage. Best of all, this formula is incredibly long-lasting with benefits that can endure for up to two full years.

Why Use Juvederm® XC?

While the earliest signs of aging are usually limited to the development of superficial, dynamic wrinkles, many people in their late thirties experience considerable volume loss, particularly at and around the mid-face. This often leads to deep facial creases and the development of jowls and loose, sagging skin.

Juvederm® XC can instantly restore facial aesthetics by providing structural support to the skin at its deepest level, lifting the cheek mass and minimizing the shadowing or overhand of the nasolabial folds. Moreover, this treatment is non-invasive, low-risk and relatively comfortable.

Sculpt the Visage in Ways That Other Fillers Cannot

In addition to restoring lost facial volume, Juvederm® XC can provide a host of secondary benefits. It also reduces the appearance of under-eye circles and contours the jawline. For these and other reasons, this is currently the best dermal filler for strategically sculpting the face without the use of invasive, surgical procedures.

Given the fact that hyaluronic acid is recognized, broken down and absorbed by the body, injections made with the basic Juvederm® formula typically last just six to nine months. Conversely, this filler can effectively reverse facial aging for as long as 18 to 24 months. It is the ideal solution for people who have already tried dermal fillers before and who want more noticeable and longer-lasting results from their future treatments.

What to Expect During a Treatment

Juvederm® XC contains its own, in-built numbing agent for continued patient comfort both during and after treatment. The addition of lidocaine makes it unnecessary for providers to use secondary, topical numbing agents to minimize discomfort.

The entire process takes about 20 minutes, and the results are immediate. While some people may experience moderate redness and swelling at the injection site, these developments are only temporary and will abate on their own. There are no special requirements for aftercare, and there is absolutely no downtime.

How to Know if Juvederm® XC is Right for You

People who have loose, sagging skin, jowls and well-defined nasolabial folds may be suitable candidates for Juvederm® XC treatment at Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville. Given the long-lasting nature of this product, however, it is often recommended for patients who have had experience with dermal fillers before and who are ready to commit to longer-lasting changes.
