About Juvéderm® XC
Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Ultra are injectable wrinkle treatment that use hyaluronic acid (HA) as the main ingredient to fill in fine lines and moderate to severe wrinkles in the face for a smoother appearance. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin, but our levels of HA decrease as we age. As one of the most popular injectable fillers used today, Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Ultra can improve the appearance of the skin by filling in wrinkles in areas around the mouth, the nasolabial folds, the creases between the eyebrows, and the area in and around the lips. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Aisha Baron, often uses Juvéderm to smooth and rejuvenate the faces of her Atlanta area patients for natural-looking results that last up to 9 months.
The best candidates for Juvéderm should have:
- A decent amount of skin elasticity
- A large area of wrinkles on the skin
- Intense lines between the eyebrows
- Marionette lines near the chin
- Overall good health
What To Expect
The doctor will conduct an evaluation of your skin before performing a Juvéderm injection to discover which areas would benefit from treatment and how many syringes will be needed. The regions of your face to be treated will be marked with ink before the doctor deftly injects the face with Juvéderm. If needed, a numbing cream can be applied before the injections to reduce patient anxiety and discomfort. Once the medication is in the skin, the doctor will give the skin a slight massage to evenly spread the Juvéderm to all needed areas.
Juvéderm injection results are usually visible right after away. It may still temporarily appear to be swollen and red, but you should be able to return to your normal activities right after your treatment. We recommend that all patients avoid strenuous activities, like exercising, for at least 24 hours. The results of Juvéderm last about 6-9 months in most patients. Patients should schedule touch-up appointments to keep their appearance consistent. Juvéderm may be used with plastic surgery, nonsurgical treatments, and other wrinkle injections to enhance your final results.
