Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
A cosmetic dermal filler is prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
It can be administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows.
It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows
JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth gel filler used to smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The JUVÉDERM® XC treatment is designed to be a natural looking treatment that can last up to a year. Manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth-consistency gel infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. The smoothing gel is proven to get the results you expect with the improved comfort you want. JUVÉDERM® XC is the first hyaluronic (HA) filler that is FDA approved to last up to one year with just one treatment.
Where does it work?
As you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of a naturally healing substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). This lack of HA causes skin to lose structure and volume, leading to unwanted facial wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM® XC works by bringing back the volume and contours of your facial structures by replacing the lost HA in your skin. JUVÉDERM® XC is designed to be used I multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, the gel can be used to smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
