Juvederm first hit the Chicago cosmetic surgery market years ago as a Hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to temporarily improve the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, which promotes collagen synthesis and normal skin function. Now, Juvederm XC takes the treatment of facial wrinkles to a new level by introducing Lidocaine directly into the treatment syringe, which reduces discomfort during and after treatment. Juvederm XC is used for treating both lip lines as well as thinning lips, and patients will be able to see the results immediately.
What makes Juvederm XC different than other Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?
Allergan, Juvederm XC’s manufacturer, has developed what they call “Hylacross Technology”: the cross-linking of the Hyaluronic acid particles to create a more cohesive, smoother substance. Hyaluronic acid injections of the past had been ridden with lumpy, rougher injection areas. A smoother product means smoother injection areas, free of any unwanted lumps or “rough spots.” This also helps results look more natural as well.
