While there are a variety of Hyaluronic acid fillers, JUVÉDERM® 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.
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.
Young, 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.
Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The
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.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule, which creates volume in
the face. In this way, Hyaluronic acid is the body’s internal moisturizer. As we age,
HA diminishes, which contributes to the presence of lines and folds. JUVÉDERM®
injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin,
helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
JUVÉDERM® XC dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment for
nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. Using a fine needle, Dr. Roberts eases
JUVÉDERM® under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume
and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly.
