Anti-aging treatments that actually work are few and far between. Dermal fillers are the way to go to preserve your healthy, smooth skin! Juvederm XC is an FDA-approved filler that is proven to work, and we’re offering it here in Weston, Florida. This filler is made from hyaluronic acid, also known as HA. HA is a component that is found in the body naturally; this is what will help to promote collagen production in the skin. If you are unfamiliar with what collagen is, it’s a protein that is crucial to our skin’s appearance. As we age, our collagen production slows down and we actually begin to lose collagen; thus we start to see fine lines, folds, wrinkles and creases appear. Juvederm XC works to reverse this aging affect. The injections can focus on target areas for treatment, without affecting the surrounding areas.
There are different variations of Juvederm that can be used to treat different areas. This kind of advancement is what makes it a leading brand in the industry, as well as a trusted filler among doctors and medical spas. Voluma is an example of a variation of Juvederm- which can be used on thicker areas, such as the cheeks. Juvederm XC also provides results that are instantaneous, primarily in fine lines and wrinkles. This is due to the consistency of the product, which is gel-like. It is hydrophilic, so it attracts the water beneath the skin. This bond with water locks in moisture. Because this is a noninvasive treatment, there is no need for anesthesia or a long recovery process. You should find yourself recovering the same day.
The side effects of Juvederm XC are mild and short-term. Common side effects include redness, soreness, itchiness; things one may expect from an injection. The results of this treatment are expected to last several months to a year. Following the one-year mark, you can ask about getting touch-ups.
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm XC are not only long-lasting, but patients generally only need one treatment to get natural-looking results.
Juvederm XC can help smooth parentheses lines, which are a dead giveaway that you are aging. As your skin loses collagen, it begins to sag so that the nasolabial folds, smile lines or parentheses lines appear. These lines stretch from the nose to the mouth. Juvederm XC can quickly smooth moderate to severe smile lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose.
