Where Can JUVÉDERM® XC Treat?
At some point, virtually the entire face will be affected by visible signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles can appear anywhere. JUVÉDERM® XC is an option we offer to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth. These are commonly known as marionettes lines. This dermal filler can also be used to treat nasolabial folds, which appear around the nose.
These areas can particularly prone to developing wrinkles due to the fact that they move so much. Talking, smiling, and other expressions can cause the collagen to start to breakdown, which is an unavoidable process.
One thing that sets JUVÉDERM® XC apart from the rest of the dermal fillers is the active ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a naturally occurring substance that is useful for moisturizing and lubricating. When injected beneath the skin, the acid helps to plump up areas that have lost volume, and it also attracts water to the site. This helps you retain moisture, which is a key factor in keeping your skin looking smooth and supple.
The Treatment Process
When you come in for your treatment, the injection process is relatively simple. JUVÉDERM® XC contains a small amount of lidocaine, which means you won’t need a topical anesthetic beforehand. The dermal filler treatment is relatively comfortable, and it results in very few side effects. Swelling and bruising at the treatment site are the most common.
After your injections are complete you can immediately return to your daily activities. When you start to see your results fading you can always come back for repeat injections to maintain your smooth skin.
