Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
Where does JUVÉDERM® XC work?
Since our skin ages differently, Juvederm® XC can be used for the rejuvenation of various problem areas. Whether you have vertical lip lines or smile lines, any unwanted wrinkle can be made smoother and a natural contour regained.
How does JUVÉDERM® XC work?
When young and healthy, our skin has an abundance of HA or Hyaluronic acid. This keeps our skin hydrated naturally. As we age, several factors reduce the amount of HA in our skin, including sunlight. This is when the skin begins to lose its volume and structure, resulting in folds and wrinkles like the lines around the nose and mouth. The use of Juvederm® XC is a safe way to introduce dermal filler which replaces the lost HA of your skin and smooths away all folds and wrinkles.
Why JUVÉDERM® XC?
- It is long lasting. This is the only HA filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year with just one treatment!
- It is a smooth and more comfortable treatment. There are several HA fillers in the market today. Unfortunately, they have a granular consistency. Juvederm® XC uses the HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth gel which flows into your skin, providing a natural feel and look. Undoubtedly, everybody notices the new you but nobody knows the secret! Juvederm® is more comfortable compared to earlier formulas because it now contains Lidocaine, a local anesthetic.
- Juvederm® is personalized. Since all wrinkles are different, the treatment plan cannot be the same either. For best results, Juvederm® offers customized plans. There are 2 formulations available – Juvederm® Ultra XC which helps in regaining contours and adding volume to facial folds and wrinkles; and Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC which is a robust formula for correction and volumizing of deeper facial wrinkles and folds. This enables your healthcare professional to give you a customized treatment, tailor-made just for you.
How long is recovery from JUVÉDERM® XC?
Juvederm® XC injections require no downtime. After your Juvederm® XC treatment you can return to your normal daily activities. It is important to note both recovery and results will vary from person to person. Juvederm® XC may cause some swelling, but it is usually gone within a week and even quicker for some patients. The swelling can depend on how the filler is injected, and how much is used. It is always recommended to have injectable fillers done by a board-certified plastic surgeon, to ensure the best results possible and lessen any potential side effects. Dr. Soler chooses to perform all dermal filler and injectable procedures personally, to optimize the treatment and recovery for his patients.
What is the cost of JUVÉDERM® XC?
Juvederm® XC is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance, so you are responsible for the payments. We understand not everyone can afford to have facial plastic surgery or may prefer an alternative treatment to an invasive or surgical procedure. If you still want to achieve a youthful appearance we have many non-surgical anti-aging options. Dr. Pedro Soler offers a variety of non-invasive skin care procedures in order to rejuvenate your appearance. These options range in price depending on your specific needs and desired outcome. It is important to discuss your goals with Dr. Soler and he will help guide you through the best options available for you. Dr Soler will address your specific suitability and answer any and all questions during your consultation at his Tampa office.
