Improve Wrinkles and Add Fullness with Restylane and Juvéderm XC
PrecisionMD Cosmetic Surgery Center provides facial filler treatments like Restylane®, Juvéderm® XCan d more to patients throughout the greater Sacramento area, including people in Elk Grove, Arden-Arcade, Roseville and more.
Restylane and Juvéderm are both injectable products designed to improve wrinkles and add fullness. Restylane visibly reduces moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and can add fullness to your lips. Using a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restalyne is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced fillers. In addition, the Restylane family of products instantly adds volume to help restore youthful contours, so you’ll see results immediately following your treatment. Juvéderm XC instantly smooths away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. And Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is FDA-cleared to instantly add volume and contour to the cheek area.
The Restylane family of products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines); the area just below the nose and above the upper lip; the corners of the mouth; and marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline).
Juvéderm® XC uses a fine needle to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly. In addition, Juvéderm XC uses Hylacross™ technology for a smooth-gel structure that holds up over time, making it the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler to continue to deliver results for up to one year with only one treatment.
Juvéderm XC – Defy Gravity
What is Juvéderm XC?
Juvéderm is a clear, smooth gel made out of hyaluronic acid (HA) – a natural substance that adds volume and hydration to your skin. Juvederm injections contain hyaluronic gel that is smooth and highly contour-able. Hyaluronic acid is a kind of sugar that occurs naturally in the human body. It works with collagen and elastin to hold moisture in near the injection site, adding volume and smoothness to the skin. In this sense, it adds softness as well as structural support, like a cushion within the skin. Juvederm XC products also contain the local anesthetic lidocaine, making the injection numb and comfortable within seconds.
Where do I use Juvéderm XC?
Juvéderm XC is used for the apples of the cheeks, and can last up to two years. It is my favorite product for enhancing and sculpting the lips. It is also terrific for filling in folds, wrinkles and creases.
I have often used it to smooth the crease that runs from beside the nostrils to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial fold) and to hide puffy lower eyelids. Juvederm XC can be used to enhance the shape of the cheekbones.
How soon will I see results?
Like any injection, Juvederm can potentially produce mild discomfort. However, this is minimized because the injection comes via a very fine needle, and contains lidocaine. Your treatment won’t take long, especially after the initial consultation and planning stage.
In general, Juvederm is well tolerated by the many patients that use it. Part of that lies in the amount of hyaluronic acid in Juvederm, which occurs naturally in the body. Side effects, such as slight redness and bruising, are typically very mild and short-lived.
Does Juvéderm XC Hurt?
In most cases, not at all. I can numb most areas of the face (lips, cheeks, eyelids, forehead) with local anesthetic nerve blocks. once this is done, you won’t feel the Juvéderm XC injections.
