JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM® XC in Maryland
Like Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM® XC are hyaluronic acid based facial fillers that are completely biocompatible and synthesized, rather than of animal origin. In our office, we exclusively use JUVÉDERM® XC for the comfort of our patients. If allergic to lidocain, we can certainly get regular JUVÉDERM® for patients. JUVÉDERM® XC is designed to soften the signs of aging by physically filling in areas of skin volume deficiency, but also by acting as a source of internal skin hydration. JUVÉDERM® XC injections can be used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, augment facial contours such as the jaw line or the cheek bones, or enhance the appearance of lip fullness. JUVÉDERM® treatment is very safe, and even beneficial to your skin. Prior to being approved as a cosmetic injectable filler, hyaluronic acid injections have been used to induce tissue healing after cataract surgery, and as an analgesic remedy for knee joint pain.
One characteristic that sets JUVÉDERM® XC apart from other hyaluronic facial injections is that it has been clinically proven to be an effective treatment for patients of all skin types and colors. Another is that the minerals contained in JUVÉDERM® XC gels are not suspended particles in the gel formula. Using an innovative new manufacturing process, the company that produces JUVÉDERM® XC has been able to invent a gel formula that is smooth and homogeneous, creating more natural cosmetic results and longer lasting benefits. The effects of a JUVÉDERM® XC treatment usually last for about nine to twelve months.
JUVÉDERM® XC provides extra comfort to our patients, as the supplement of lidocaine to the filler has been an added bonus, especially for those seeking lip augmentation. Patients have been very satisfied with the treatments – even those that are very afraid of needles. During your visit, she may suggest other fillers such as: Belotero®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, or Sculptra® Aesthetic.
