Juvederm® XC is designed to restore lost volume in mid-face areas with deep creases or sagging skin. This injectable gel contains a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring acid within the human body. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating substance that instantly gives the dermis a smooth, supple appearance by filling in moderate to severe wrinkles and lifting drooping skin. In a matter of minutes, people can effectively turn back the hands of time. Best of all, they can refresh their looks without having to undergo any of the cutting or tissue removal that other, more invasive cosmetic procedures commonly entail.
How Does Juvederm® XC Work?
Throughout the formative stages of life, the skin is largely supported by the naturally-hydrating substance hyaluronic acid. Ongoing exposure to harmful UV rays, aging, hormonal changes and the decline of natural collagen production can all age the skin by diminishing its hyaluronic acid stores.
As hyaluronic acid is depleted, the skin invariably suffers losses in both volume and structure. This, in turn, leads to the development of fine lines, wrinkles and deep facial creases. Juvederm® XC reverses this process by supplying new hyaluronic acid and giving the treated area a fuller and more robust appearance overall. This solution affords people with a safe, non-invasive and easy way to smooth out noticeable creases and folds.
Juvederm® XC Injections
During a Juvederm® XC treatment, our provider will inject this fast-acting gel into all areas that are showing noticeable creases and folds. There is no need to apply any numbing creams or other numbing agents before getting started, given that lidocaine is built directly into the Juvederm® XC formula for continued comfort throughout the treatment process.
Once your injections are complete, our provider will massage the treated area to ensure that the gel is distributed evenly and that the results are both smooth and natural-looking. You’ll be able to see a number of significant improvements right away and can look forward to experiencing additional changes in skin texture and facial volume over the next several days.
How is Juvederm® XC Different from Other Dermal Fillers?
Juvederm® XC can provide impressive results that last up to one full year. Given that hyaluronic acid is both produced by and eventually recognized by the body, dermal fillers containing this acid are gradually processed and absorbed. Juvederm® XC is highly valued for its ability to create longer-lasting improvements than other dermal fillers in its class.
It is important to note that people can safely and easily maintain the benefits of their treatments by simply having touch-up procedures performed as needed. With its own in-built anesthetic and its simple, yet effective composition, this dermal filler is fast becoming the preferred option for restoring facial volume and plumping and lifting the skin.
