JUVÉDERM® XC is a non-surgical filler your doctor uses to instantly smooth out the lines along the sides of your nose and mouth. It can provide natural-looking results for up to a year with optimal treatment. JUVÉDERM® XC is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), manufactured using proprietary HYLACROSS™ technology.
JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler is injected into the skin by one of Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, P.C. skilled providers using a fine needle to temporarily fill in the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as parentheses (smile) lines and marionette lines.
Juvederm dermal filler may be used in the following treatment areas:
Smile Lines, also called nasolabial folds or parenthesis, which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth
Vertical Lip Lines, which form above the upper lip
Corners of the mouth, which can turn downward, giving the look of a constant frown
Marionette Lines, which begin at the corners of the mouth and extend down toward the chin
The Difference With JUVÉDERM® XC
JUVÉDERM® XC is the only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to last up to one year with optimal treatment, and JUVÉDERM® XC was studied in all skin types. The unique manufacturing process uses HYLACROSS™ technology to provide a high concentration of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid.
What to Expect
The injection process can be performed during a brief office visit. You'll also need to allow time to consult with your doctor prior to treatment. Touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal results. Less gel (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.
