JUVÉDERM® is the number one selling dermal filler in the US. It is a hyaluronic acid filler, derived from a natural substance that is found throughout the human body. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin and joints. Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic, biodegradable versions of these naturally occurring sugars and are considered to be extremely safe.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth gel filler that will instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. It works by helping to replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost with age, adding volume to 'fill out' and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm can smooth out the lines along the sides of your nose and mouth for up to one year with only one treatment. Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year with initial treatment.
JUVÉDERM® XC is formulated with 0.3% powdered lidocaine to provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment, ensuring the smooth, natural looking results you expect with the comfort you want.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas, from smile lines to vertical lip lines. Juvederm can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore your natural contours. JUVÉDERM® XC is available in two formulations—JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and facial wrinkles.

What are possible side effects?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site responses such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) and is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.
