Juvederm™ XC

Everyone's skin ages differently and Juvederm may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas, from smile lines to vertical lip lines. It is an advanced smooth gel dermal filler that was FDA-approved in June 2006 for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as deep lines from your nose to your mouth (nasolabial folds).. It is also useful for enhancing lip volume and for reshaping cheek contours.

Juvederm includes hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance. It is biocompatible, supplementing the body's natural hyaluronic acid, which age has depleted, and is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. Juvederm lifts and adds volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. After six to nine months, the biocompatible compound is naturally absorbed into the body.
