What Is Juvederm® XC?
Juvederm XC is a gel made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps skin retain moisture and softness and adds volume. This injectable filler can also smooth lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Juvederm XC is the top collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the country.
Do I Need It?
As we age, skin loses moisture and elasticity, causing moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles to form around your mouth. If you have parentheses around your mouth, those are the result of your skin losing the fundamental components it needs to give it structure. The loss of hyaluronic acid and collagen cause static lines to appear when your face is at rest. An injection of hyaluronic acid helps recapture the moisture and softens the skin back to a more youthful appearance.
Just like other areas of the face, our lips may lose volume and thin as we age. Other people simply desire more fullness in their lips because they have naturally thin lips. Juvederm Ultra XC instantly adds volume and fullness to your lips for a natural looking, long lasting result. In fact, 78 percent of people treated experienced improved satisfaction with the look and feel of their lips up to one year later! Further, when treated again after one year, less product was needed to achieve the desired result.
Is Juvederm Safe?
Juvederm is approved by the FDA for use on adults over the age of 21 who want their skin to appear younger by removing wrinkles and lines. Lost volume in the facial area is revitalized by this injectable treatment. It is made with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body. The Juvederm line has been approved for safety and effectiveness in clinical studies, but should only be used in the facial area. When injected by a skilled professional, the treatment should only cause mild, common side effects that will go away shortly after the injection.
Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid filler proven to have results that last up to one year after treatment injected for lines and wrinkles or lip enhancement*.
