How does Juvéderm XC work?
Juvéderm XC is a filler solution that is composed of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid can be found naturally in the body such as in the cushion of our joints or the fluid in our eyes. Lidocaine is an anesthetic and is used to ease the injections and reduce discomfort during application.
Juvéderm XC works by adding hyaluronic acid back into the deeper tissues of the face, to create a firmer, rejuvenated look, and to add volume. Different formulations will be used for the various areas of the face and the look that you are trying to achieve
What is the Juvéderm XC procedure?
Juvéderm XC is injected into the tissues of the area that is being treated, at a specific depth and amount for that treatment area. Treatments are relatively quick and take between five to thirty minutes per area depending on the size of the area being treated.
