JUVÉDERM® XC Can Turn Back the Clock on Aging
Experience the benefits of JUVÉDERM® XC at our Scottsdale, AZ, practice, where Dr. Dustin Heringer administers this injectable dermal filler to smooth out wrinkles and help patients achieve a nonsurgical facelift. At Arizona Ocular and Facial Plastic Surgery, this treatment is a part of the JUVÉDERM® family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are used for filling in facial lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Over time, you lose moisture and elasticity in your skin, causing wrinkles folds, and other visible signs of aging. With a dermal filler such as JUVÉDERM® XC, you can reverse the signs of aging with a half-hour treatment.
What is JUVÉDERM® XC?
This injectable dermal filler is made from hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible and naturally occurring substance found in the body. Dr. Heringer will inject the filler into the facial tissue below the skin’s surface to add volume in the targeted areas. Compared to other dermal fillers in the JUVÉDERM® product line, JUVÉDERM® XC is designed to add contours to cheeks, as well as smooth moderate to severe lines and folds around the nose and mouth. Because of its lightweight, gel-like consistency, it can also be used to plump the lips for a nonsurgical approach to a lip augmentation.
One of the primary benefits of JUVÉDERM® XC is its ability to dramatically turn black the clock on aging without undergoing a facelift.
JUVÉDERM® XC can address:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Smoker’s lines around the mouth
- Thin lips
- Flattened cheeks
What to Expect During JUVÉDERM® XC Treatment
During your consultation, Dr. Heringer will review your overall cosmetic goals to determine which treatments would best suit your individualized needs. In addition to JUVÉDERM® XC, you may benefit from one of our other injectable treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Restylane®.
Dr. Heringer will first apply a topical anesthetic over the areas being treated for optimal comfort. Then he will gently insert the needle below the skin’s surface to add volume to facial tissue. Due to the gel-like consistency of JUVÉDERM® XC, Dr. Heringer is able to manipulate the substance to ensure correct placement and satisfying results.
The overall treatment can be completed in under an hour, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after. It is not uncommon to experience temporary mild bruising or swelling for the first few days. Within 24 to 48 hours, you will begin to notice a dramatic difference, and results can last up to a year before another treatment is required.
