The Juvéderm® XC dermal filler is a smooth gel made up of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). In our skin, HA adds volume and provides hydration and nutrients to skin cells. As we age, sunlight and other factors reduce the amount of HA, causing our skin to lose structure and volume and creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds.
When Juvéderm XC is injected into the skin, it instantly smooths away fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get natural-looking results immediately that last up to a year.
There are two versions of the product to choose from: Juvéderm Ultra XC for contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. Both versions are formulated with lidocaine, a common anesthetic used to improve the comfort of the treatment.
