Dermafillers

JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler used to instantly smooth away wrinkles into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and restores a smoother appearance to the face. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to one year.

 

JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissues to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. 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.

In its natural form unbound hyaluronic acid forms liquid-hydrated individual chains that are metabolized in the body in just 12 hours. The liquid hyaluronic acid is transformed into a soft solid, or "gel" by a process known as cross-linking where in the individual chains of hyaluronic acid are chemically bound together. The firmness of the gel depends on the degree of cross-linking of the individual hyaluronic acid is used therapeutically.

JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel, a 'next generation' hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA in June 2006, contains the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal currently available.  JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel may last longer than the other available hyaluronic acid products on the market.
