Juvederm XC

Juvederm is a new generation of dermal fillers from ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products. It’s a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel.

Juvederm contains the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. It is currently the only approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in patients of color.

Juvederm is developed using the proprietary Hylacross technology, a technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily into the skin and creates a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be seen under magnification as opposed to the smooth formulation used in Juvederm.

Juvederm is available in two formulations to allow for a tailored treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.

Common Questions About JUVÉDERM® XC

Q: How is JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler used in treatment?

A: Dr. Besnoff will inject JUVÉDERM®  XC non-surgical filler into the skin 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.

Q: How long until I see results and how long dose it last?

A: Results are instant and can last up to one year.

Q: Is treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler painful?

A: Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. JUVÉDERM®  XC is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. We will numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.

Q: Can people with different skin tones/colors be treated with JUVÉDERM® XC?

A: Yes. In fact, JUVÉDERM®  XC non-surgical filler has been studied in all skin types.

Q: What are the different types of wrinkles?

A: There are two different types of wrinkles:

  • Dynamic wrinkles are caused when muscles contract to make facial expressions such as smiles and frowns.
  • Static wrinkles develop because our skin’s natural substances (such as collagen and hyaluronic acid), which provide structure and volume, decrease over time.

Q: What is the difference between BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®  XC?

A: BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM®  XC are two possible ways to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Both are non-surgical, but they work differently:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: Injected beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity which is one of the causes of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduce the activity of those muscles.
  • JUVÉDERM® XC: Injected into the skin to temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles such as those around the nose and mouth.
