JUVÉDERM® XC is a FDA approved dermal filler injectable that is to temporarily treat moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® XC is most commonly used in folds around the nose and mouth, smile lines, or to enhance or restore the appearance of the lips. JUVÉDERM® XC is infused with lidocaine to make its injection more comfortable. Besides treating the signs of aging, this dermal filler can also be used for chicken pox and the removal of depressed scars. JUVÉDERM® XC will leave your skin feeling smoother and looking younger!

JUVÉDERM Injectable Procedure

JUVÉDERM® XC injections take about 30-40 minutes to administer. A fine needle injects the dermal filler under the skin in the targeted area to add volume or fill in wrinkles and folds. Because JUVÉDERM® XC contains lidocaine to improve comfort, an anesthetic may not be needed. Depending on the patient, the doctor may use a topical anesthetic on the treated area prior to injection. After the procedure is completed, patients may resume to their regular activities.

How long does JUVÉDERM last?

The results of JUVÉDERM® XC are visible immediately after injection. Results can last approximately 3-9 months and varies depending on the area treated. Additional ‘touch up’ treatments may be required to achieve the desired results.
