The advent of Juvederm XC has taken any real discomfort associated with dermal injections and made it disappear. The implementation of the anesthetic Lidocaine directly into the injection syringe has virtually eliminated any discomfort during and after injection. Patients rarely may still have minor bruising, swelling or discoloration post-injection, but expect these side effects to last no more than 24 hours. You will be able to return to work after the procedure as well.
The injections themselves are fast, as they are usually. completed in as little as a half hour depending on the treatment area.
