Juvéderm® XC injectable gel is an FDA-approved cosmetic filler that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in the body. It smoothes away moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, and can add volume to skin.
There are several types of Juvéderm® available which can be used for different purposes: Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC may be used for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and deeper facial lines. Juvéderm® Volbella® is used for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines. Juvéderm® Voluma® XC is used in the upper cheeks to restore volume loss.
Results of these injections can be seen immediately and may last for several months, and in some cases, over a year. There is virtually no downtime with this procedure although some temporary bruising or swelling may occur. At Bloomfield Dermatology, Juvéderm® is only injected by one of our board certified dermatologists.
