Where Does It Work?

Everyone's skin ages differently and Juvéderm® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas.* From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.

How Does Juvéderm® XC Work?

A healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called

hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds - like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.

 

Using a dermal filler like Juvéderm® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.

 

1. Understanding Where Wrinkles Form

Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defense against the environment. The dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, is composed primarily of connective tissue and provides the skin with a support network. Most facial wrinkles and deeper nasolabial folds occur within the dermal layer of the skin.

 

2. Our Skin's Natural Moisturizer

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule. Much like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. In this way, Hyaluronic acid can be thought of as the body’s internal moisturizer. But, as we age, HA diminishes, which contributes to the presence of lines and folds. Juvéderm® XC injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds.

 

3. Experiencing Rejuvenation

Juvéderm® XC dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment for nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. Using a fine needle, your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm® XC under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly.

 

While there are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm® XC is uniquely formulated. A next generation HA filler, Juvéderm® XC uses a manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology. HYLACROSS™ gives Juvéderm® XC its special smooth-gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvéderm® XC is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved* to last up to one year with only one treatment.d 1, 2

 

* In the United States, Juvéderm® is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).

? Most subjects acquired optimal correction at initial treatment. Some subjects required up to 2 touch-ups to achieve optimal correction.

d This includes all Juvéderm® injectable gel formulations.

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) and is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.

 

What does it do?

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection.

 

How is it used?

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.

What will it accomplish?

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 1 year.

 

What are possible side effects?

Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.  As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.

 

Are there any reasons why I should not receive JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC (contraindications)?

Your physician will ask about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. The product should not be used in patients who have:

•  Severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies

•  A history of allergies to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins
