Juvéderm® XC

Juvéderm® XC-Gross-Pointe-MI

Juvéderm® XC is a smooth flowing dermal filler that can be used to instantly diminish wrinkles around your mouth and nose. It is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, which gives the gel a smooth consistency.

With Juvéderm® XC you get smoother skin as well as the improved, more youthful appearance that you want. Everyone will notice something different, but they won’t know for sure. It is used to fill superficial fine lines, facial wrinkles, folds, and grooves (nasolabial folds are a good example). It is approved for use in patients over 21 years of age.

How it works

Juvéderm® XC replaces skin hydrating hyaluronic acid that the body loses as you age. The drug is injected into the facial tissue using a very small needle, and it works to add volume to the skin. Juvéderm XC is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment.

What it Treats

Everyone’s skin ages differently and Juvéderm® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. You can use Juvéderm XC to smooth away smile lines, vertical lip lines, unwanted wrinkles and also to restore natural contours.
