The injection is accomplished during a quick, simple office visit. A topical numbing cream is used so patients experience minimal pain during treatment. In addition, the JuvedermⓇ XC formula contains lidocaine to aid in numbing the treated area.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate for JuvedermⓇ?
Anyone looking for immediate improvement of wrinkles and fine lines close to the skin’s surface as well as those looking to enhance the shape or volume of the lips may be ideal candidates for treatment with JuvedermⓇ XC. For individuals with certain scars or skin imperfections, JuvedermⓇ XC may also be a solution to help improve the appearance of the skin.
What Happens During the Injectable Treatment?
Treatment with JuvedermⓇ XC is quick and lasts an average of between fifteen to twenty minutes. A topical numbing cream is first applied to the injection site with no incisions made. A fine needle is used to inject the substance underneath the skin’s surface. To help minimize bruising, ice is applied and pressure is placed on the injection area following the injection. Slight swelling is normal around the injection area. For lip enhancement, swelling may be more pronounced when JuvedermⓇ XC is applied. However, swelling typically fades within an hour or two following treatment.
JuvedermⓇ XC Safety
Dr. Chernoff and his staff are committed to ensuring that your procedure is safe without any risks. Patients can return to their routines and activities right away, however, some patients prefer to ice the treated area first. Mild to moderate bruising and swelling may be experienced by some patients, but these side effects typically resolve quickly. Patients that receive any injectable are seen for a follow-up appointment one week after the injection.
