Dermal Filler FAQs

Kiss those lines goodbye!™ with JUVÉDERM® XC

Why do parentheses appear on my face?
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, time, 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.

How does JUVÉDERM® XC make the parentheses disappear?
JUVÉDERM® XC helps replace the HA your skin has lost, adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® XC achieves its smooth consistency due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology.

HYLACROSS™ gives JUVÉDERM® XC its unique smooth-gel properties as well as robust 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.

Is the procedure painful?
JUVÉDERM® XC is formulated with lidocaine, a common anesthetic, to provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment. JUVÉDERM® XC provides the smooth, natural-looking results you expect with the improved comfort you want.

What can I expect with treatment?
You can experience JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel with a quick, in-office procedure and minimal downtime. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® XC under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. You’ll notice the difference instantly!
