WHY JUVEDERM® XC?

Juvéderm® XC is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year with one treatment (did we just say a year?). That’s right, up to a year.

Not all HA dermal fillers are created equal. Only Juvéderm® XC is so smooth. Other hyaluronic acid fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels, but our unique manufacturing process (HYLACROSS™) creates a smooth-consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!

Juvéderm® XC injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven its safety and effectiveness in persons of color. Studies with Juvéderm® XC showed no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to wrinkle treatment. A customized treatment plan is important for achieving the best results. That’s why Juvéderm® XC is available in two formulations — Juvéderm® XC for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm® XC, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and facial wrinkles. This allows your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) and is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. 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. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 9 months to 1 year.

Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.

Your physician will ask about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC. The product should not be used in patients who have:

  • Severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies
  • A history of allergies to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins

The following are important treatment considerations for you to discuss with your physician and understand in order to help avoid unsatisfactory results and complications:

  • Patients who are using substances that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as with any injection, may experience increased bruising or bleeding at injection site. You should inform your physician before treatment if you are using these types of substances
  • If laser treatment, chemical peeling, or any other procedure based on active dermal response is considered after treatment with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, there is a possible risk of an inflammatory reaction at the treatment site
  • JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel should be used with caution in patients on immunosuppressive therapy, or therapy used to decrease the body’s immune response, as there may be an increased risk of infection
  • The safety for use during pregnancy, in breast-feeding females, or in patients under 18 years has not been established
  • The safety in patients with a history of excessive scarring (eg, hypertrophic scarring and keloid formations) and pigmentation disorders has not been studied

The safety and effectiveness for the treatment of areas other than facial wrinkles and folds (such as lips) have not been established in controlled clinical studies.

Some discomfort may occur during and after the injection. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel contains an anesthetic to reduce injection-site pain. Physicians may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area with a cream placed directly on the injection site (topical) to further minimize discomfort.

Your physician will tell you what to expect following treatment with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC. Within the first 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages. Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection sites. If there is swelling, you may need to place an ice pack over the swollen area. You should ask your physician when makeup may be applied after your treatment.

No. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal correction. Less material (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.

There are a variety of dermal fillers available in the United States that may be used for treatment.    Aside from these, additional options for the correction of lines and wrinkles do exist, including facial creams, BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA), chemical peels, and laser skin surface treatments.   You may discuss these treatments with your physician.

JUVÉDERM® XC is the first and only FDA-approved HA filler that lasts up to 1 year with 1 treatment.1,‡ Innovative HYLACROSS™ technology makes JUVÉDERM® XC the first smooth-consistency gel that flows easily and consistently into the skin.
