As we age, our skin loses elasticity and moisture. This can cause wrinkles and creases to form around the nose and mouth. In Orlando, we offer Juvederm® XC to help remedy these issues with natural-looking, long-lasting results.
What is Juvederm ® XC?
Juvederm® XC is an injectable gel made to smooth wrinkles and creases in the face. Made up of hyaluronic acid, this filler is naturally hydrating, restoring the lost moisture in our skin.
Although there are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers on the market, Juvederm® XC uses HYLACROSS™ technology, which gives this filler its smooth-gel texture which holds up over time, resulting in long-lasting results. With just one treatment, patients can see results for up to one whole year.
Treatments are quick, usually lasting about 15 minutes, and can be done in-office. Patients can request a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area to further minimize discomfort during injections. There is no downtime required, though patients should avoid direct sunlight and the consumption of alcoholic beverages 24 hours after treatment for optimal results.
Following treatment, patients may experience swelling, bruising, itching and pain at the injection site, though these reactions should clear up within a week. If you are concerned about bruising, makeup can easily cover any dark areas following treatment.
