JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth cosmetic gel filler used to correct wrinkles and folds of skin in the facial area. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure making it safe. Manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, the gel is infused with lidocaine to provide the desired results of the patient while being comfortable during the procedure. At Philip M. Tornatore, DDS, we offer JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers to help our patients achieve a youthful appearance.
How does JUVÉDERM® XC work?
As people age, a lot of factors decreases the amount of the natural healing substance in the skin called hyaluronic acid (HA). The lack of this substance could make the skin lose its structure and volume.
Using hyaluronic acid and JUVÉDERM® XC combined with water present in the skin, lifts it which adds volume to the facial folds and wrinkles in the treated area. The gel can subtly enhance the lips making the patient feel and look young.
What can patients expect from the treatment?
JUVÉDERM® procedure does not require surgery but is still done by a professional. The duration of the treatment usually lasts for 15 to 60 minutes depending on the condition. During the procedure, JUVÉDERM® XC is administered through injection and syringe. The gel contains lidocaine which gives comfort to the patient throughout the treatment because of its pain-reducing properties. Mostly, patients only need one appointment to attain results.
Some people may experience redness, itching, pain, and swelling but these are normal and does not last long.
Aside from eliminating wrinkles and folds, one benefit of JUVÉDERM® is the quick recovery time after treatment. Patients who had undergone the treatment could immediately resume with their normal activities. However, there are things to consider such as:
- Refrain from wearing makeup for at least 12 hours following the procedure.
- Avoid sun exposure, cold temperatures, steam, and saunas for two weeks.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a quick procedure with long lasting and promising effects. It is an effective treatment for people with tight schedules but wants to enhance facial appearance.
