JUVÉDERM®XC is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (creases that run from the nose to the bottom of the mouth). Hyaluronic acid is a natural element of the body, and is highly concentrated in JUVÉDERM®XC to provide results that are long-lasting and appear natural. JUVÉDERM®XC works to smooth away the appearance of wrinkles by adding volume to the skin’s surface. It is also the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler proven safe and effective in persons of color.
Your JUVÉDERM®XC Appointment
Patients can expect to be at the office for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, and can expect to see immediate results. Patients are given the option of choosing between JUVÉDERM®XC Ultra, used for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and JUVÉDERM®XC Ultra Plus, a more robust formula used for correcting deeper wrinkles.
If necessary, Dr. Stout will use a numbing cream and/or cold compresses on the surface of the skin to ensure the most comfortable experience for his patient. Once numb, Dr. Stout uses an extremely fine needle to inject JUVÉDERM®XC into the skin, adding volume to wrinkles and smoothing the surface of the face. After the procedure, the patient may experience slight redness or tenderness as often occurs with injections, though these effects are temporary and resolve quickly.
