What are Juvederm XC Injections?

Juvederm XC Injections help reduce the sign of aging

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and moisture. This results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This becomes more visible over the time. Consequently, your skin has an older appearance. This might lead you to consider Juvederm XC Injections to reduce the signs of aging.

There are many factors that contribute to premature aging such as your genetics, emotional stress to which you are subjected, habits such as smoking, and sleep deprivation. We could delay the signs of aging by having a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet for only a time.  Eventually, the signs of age will catch up with you.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in the deeper layers of the dermis or your skin. It delivers nutrients, retains water and it plays a role in lubricating the joints and repairing wounds. The key is that HA while adding volume will help your skin retain moisture and softness.  The hyaluronic acid is used in dermal filler products such as Juvederm XC which help reduce the signs of aging.

Juvederm XC Injections used as facial fillers

Injectable fillers can help you look more youthful as they fill the line or crease with a substance that will make the wrinkles disappear. They can also be used to add volume to the lips and lift cheeks. Specifically, Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable gel used to add volume to your cheeks which lift and contour your cheeks.  Juvederm Ultra XC, again an injectable gel, is used principally for lip augmentation to plump your lips.

Juvederm XC is an injectable gel that is applied into the facial tissue to correct fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. It restores the skin’s volume and stimulates the productions of the collagen and elastin to maintain the skin’s elasticity and fullness. It doesn’t contain animal-derived ingredients so is entirely biodegradable and no pre-treatment allergy testing is necessary.

Juvederm XC Injection treatments

Qualified Medical Doctor administer the Juvederm XC Injections

The treatment uses a chemical process that binds the individual chains of hyaluronic acid into a long-lasting gel that is injected into the treatment areas. The formula is injected with a fine needle into the dermis and attracts water that helps to fill and smooth the surface replacing the fat tissue that we lose naturally as we age.

The procedure takes about 15 minutes and the results can last up to a year with undergoing treatment.  Juvederm Voluma XC is the only filler that has been proven to last up to 2 years in the cheeks with optimal treatment.

Based on the Juvedern XC formula, patients will see results immediately after the first session. Patients that get treated after a year will only need a small retouch with less product than before. Research has shown that repeated injections may stimulate the body’s natural reaction to produce collagen and less filler will be needed.

There are minor side effects and allergic reactions to the product are rare. Patients with side effects may present swelling of the skin, redness, bruising, bumps and skin irritation, these symptoms should not last more than 14 days.

This product should not be used by patients with severe allergies and should only be applied for a health care professional, preferably a medical doctor.  Juvederm XC is the first formula with hyaluronic acid that can last up to a year. It is a great alternative to obtain more subtle results and look younger compared a facelift where the recovery is long and potentially painful.

Make sure to consult a medical doctor before getting wrinkle fillers so he or she can go over your medical record and determine how much product you need. Once you get fillers you should avoid sun exposure, minimize exercise and refrain from drinking alcohol.
