What is JUVADERM?
JUVADERM is the only HA filler FDA approved* to last up to one year. Ask your physician or nurse how you can get long-lasting results with JUVADERM. JUVADERM XC injectable gel is a smooth consistency gel dermal filler that helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds ) the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). JUVADERM XC comes in two formulations JUVADERM Ultra XC and JUVADERM Ultra Plus XC.
What makes JUVADERM XC different from other dermal fillers?
JUVADERM XC is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved* to last up to 1 year after initial treatment. Our unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. All other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels. And, JUVADERM is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
Is treatment with JUVADERM XC injectable gel painful?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency gel of JUVADERM XC allows your doctor or nurse to administer it easily and smoothly. And, JUVADERM XC is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Additionally, JUVADERM XC is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. Your doctor or nurse may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.
What are the possible side effects of JUVADERM XC injectable gel?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injections site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection.
