The common questions about JUVEDERM® XC
- Posted on: Jun 24 2016
Wrinkles and skin folds come with aging, but naturally, they can make us feel self-conscious about our faces. As a solution to these problems, JUVEDERM XC Injectable Gel adds volume to the areas around your nose and mouth to reduce the look of wrinkles and lines.
To help you better understand this procedure, here a few of the most common questions about it:
1. What makes it different than BOTOX?
Though both of them offer a way to smooth your complexion, BOTOX and JUVEDERM are different treatments. While BOTOX concentrates on the brow lines and crow's feet, JUVEDERM focuses on wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
2. How many treatments will I need?
Just like any other treatment, results can vary from patient to patient or where the treatment is applied. However, on average, JUVEDERM lasts up to a year. In some cases, patients need a few touch-up treatments to get optimal results.
This is why it's important to consult with your doctor before the procedure to see what you'll need. Luckily, the process is brief, so the initial treatment and any follow-up appointments won't take up too much of your time.
3. How do I know if it's right for me?
Unless you have severe allergies to any part of the injectable, you're likely a candidate for JUVEDERM treatment. However, only a doctor can truly determine that, so be sure to schedule a consultation to find out.
4. Is it safe?
JUVEDERM is perfectly safe. Common side effects from the procedure are typically mild to moderate and include temporary redness, tenderness, swelling, bumps or bruising.
