Juvederm® XC and Juvederm® Ultra XC are the smooth gel fillers that your Harvard Eye Associates aesthetician uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you'll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Juvederm® XC is manufactured using Hylacross™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With Juvederm® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
Everyone's skin ages differently and Juvederm® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds - like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like Juvederm® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin's primary defense against the environment. The dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, is composed primarily of connective tissue and provides the skin with a support network. Most facial wrinkles and deeper nasolabial folds occur within the dermal layer of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule. Much like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. In this way, Hyaluronic acid can be thought of as the body's internal moisturizer. But, as we age, HA diminishes, which contributes to the presence of lines and folds. Juvederm® XC injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
Juvederm® XC dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment for nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. Using a fine needle, your healthcare professional eases Juvederm® XC under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly.
While there are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvederm® XC is uniquely formulated. A next generation HA filler, Juvederm® XC uses a manufacturing process called Hylacross™ technology. Hylacross™ gives Juvederm® XC its special smooth-gel structure that holds up over time. That's why Juvederm® XC is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that's FDA approved to last up to one year with only one treatment.
