JUVÉDERM® XC dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment for nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. Using a fine needle, your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® 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.
Who is it good for?
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. Smile lines, Marionette lines, vertical lip lines, and other areas can be treated to smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
What should I expect?
Once you have discussed your needs with Dr. Erickson, your treatment can take place in less than fifteen minutes. Improvement is usually instantly noticeable, though you may have some minor swelling from the procedure. JUVÉDERM® XC, and JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC results can last up to a year, and sometimes longer.
Are there risks?
Though less common, there is a chance of minor bruising associated with any injectable. To lessen your chances of bruising, we recommend discontinuing use of products like Aspirin, Blood-Thinners, Fish-Oils, Alcohol, Aleve, and any aspirin-based products like Alka Seltzer for 2 weeks prior to your procedure. We do not treat patients who are pregnant or nursing. Here is more specific information on risks, click to view.
