Does it Hurt?
JUVÉDERM® XC is specially formulated with lidocaine (a type of anesthetic) to improve comfort during treatment. You will feel an occasional needle stick during the procedure. The Physician will ease JUVÉDERM® XC under the skin (where wrinkles and folds occur) to replace lost skin volume. Following the injection, light pressure may be applied to the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy and the results are instant!
Where is JUVÉDERM® injected?
The treatment is very individualized. The areas treated may include nasal labial folds, marionette lines, acne scars, lips and tear troughs.
How long is the appointment?
Typically, one appointment is approximately 30 minutes.
Is there down time?
Down time is minimal, if any, depending on the area injected. Side effects can include (but not limited to) bruising, swelling and redness at the injection site.
How long does the treatment last?
Treatment varies from one patient to the next. One treatment can last up to one year.
