What is JUVÉDERM® XC?

If you would like a younger, fresher-looking appearance without surgery, dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® XC might give you the subtle "lift" you need. JUVÉDERM® XC is an FDA-approved injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your skin, muscles, and tendons. Used as a dermal filler, it can safely add volume and structure to make wrinkles less noticeable and contours appear fuller, giving you a "liquid face lift." JUVÉDERM® XC contains a small amount of the anesthetic lidocaine to minimize discomfort during treatment. A typical session lasts 60 minutes.

JUVÉDERM® XC safely adds volume and contour to an aging face, restoring a more youthful appearance without surgery.

What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers for Denver Patients?

Typically, men and women between 30 and 50 begin using dermal fillers to rejuvenate their appearance, although younger patients may also benefit. Because everyone's skin ages at a different rate and in a different way, dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® XC can treat one or many problem areas, giving you the individual results you want:

  • Adds volume to cheeks, producing a minimally invasive "liquid face lift"
  • Smooths away "smile lines," "parentheses," or nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth
  • Minimizes depressed scars
  • Restores volume and support to the hollow areas around the temples and cheeks
  • Fills in vertical lip lines ("smoker's lines") that develop around the upper and lower lip
  • Softens marionette creases that form below the corners of the mouth
  • Gently restores contour to the lips

Results are immediately visible and can last a year or longer. Each treatment takes less than an hour and involves little downtime. Dermal fillers work well alone or in conjunction with BOTOX® and laser treatments to help you look your best.

How Does JUVÉDERM® XC Work?

Before your treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC at the Denver Dermatology Center, you will be asked to provide a health history and to identify the problem areas you would like to address. Your skin will be examined to determine the best approach to treating those problem areas and to select the specific dermal fillers to meet your needs.

JUVÉDERM® XC will be injected into your skin to achieve the desired results. The targeted areas will be gently massaged to distribute the gel evenly and uniformly, giving you a natural appearance. Because JUVÉDERM® XC contains a mild anesthetic agent, most patients experience minimal discomfort. The entire treatment lasts less than 60 minutes.

JUVÉDERM® XC Recovery

Treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC is nonsurgical, so you can expect to recover in 2 to 12 days. To reduce the risk of bruising or bleeding, avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), and blood thinners for a week prior to your treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC. Some Denver patients may still experience localized swelling and bruising depending on the injection site. This can be reduced with a cold compress. You should be able to apply makeup to the treated areas and resume normal activity immediately.

The Denver Dermatology Center team will help you achieve the natural-looking results you want. The filler used and your individual facial characteristics will determine how long improvement will last and how frequently you will need to return to maintain your results.

JUVÉDERM® XC Safety and Risks for Denver Area Patients

JUVÉDERM® XC has been safely and effectively used in millions of patients worldwide. This product should not be used in patients with severe allergies or in patients with allergies to bacterial proteins or lidocaine. That said, it is extremely important to select an experienced clinician to perform the treatment to ensure the best results.
