How Juvéderm® XC Works
Juvéderm® XC is a biocompatible dermal filler gel that includes hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance. It improves a patient’s appearance by lifting the skin and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treated area. Juvéderm® XC is a popular choice for treating wrinkles around the nasolabial folds (“smile lines” or “parentheses”).
The Juvéderm® XC Difference
Like many dermal fillers and injectables, Juvéderm® XC provides a smoother appearance from the gel-like structure of its main ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA). The formula of Juvéderm® XC differs from other dermal fillers as its formula is cross-linked, which increases the amount of time needed between follow-up treatments.
For fine lines, creases around the mouth and lip enhancement, Juvéderm® XC offers relief. As the skin ages, the skin’s natural supply of HA or hyaluronic acid depletes. Juvéderm® XC replaces lost HA and restores texture and volume to areas of the face. As a dermal filler, Juvéderm® XC can alter the appearance of aging skin. During a Juvéderm® XC treatment, Dr. Kotis injects the gel beneath the skin.
Juvéderm® XC is typically used to eliminate wrinkles around the nose, mouth and frown lines in the forehead. It can also be used to add volume to the cheeks and maintain the results of a facelift. The number of injections and the exact placement of the injections will depend on each individual patient. A Juvéderm® XC procedure will vary in duration but usually takes an hour. In Chicago, patients can leave the office immediately after their injection.
After an appointment, patients can notice a smoother complexion.After an appointment, patients may notice redness, swelling or minor discomfort. For most patients, these symptoms subside over the next few days. Patients can experience a plumper complexion for a year after an appointment. In Chicago, patients can choose to schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Kotis to maintain those results.
