Juvederm Xc in the Chicago Metro Area– Add Volume to Facial Folds and Wrinkles Non-surgically

Juvederm XC is cosmetic filler which is used to eliminate facial wrinkles and folds non-surgically. Juvederm is a colorless gel administered through injection in generous amounts on the face to create a smooth appearance. The main component in this dermal filler is Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a natural occurring sugar found in the human body which is rich in nutrients and hydrates the skin. The soft tissue filler can be injected in a brief visit to the doctor’s office. If an aesthetician is going to give you the injection, ensure he or she is certified and experienced. Consultation will help you understand if you qualify for the procedure. Your physician should guide you in preparing for the treatment and highlight in details about its possible side effects.

Juvederm overview

Juvederm (often misspelled Juvaderm) was approved in 2006 by the US FDA for the treatment of mild to moderate facial creases. Juvederm injections are commonly used to smooth out face wrinkles, plump lips, and treat acne scars. It can also reduce lines on the forehead and brow, plump eyebrows, fill in under-eye hollows, enhance cheek volume and jawline, soften scars, and reduce wrinkles on hands.

Juvederm is offered in different formulations, including Ultra and Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra is Allergan’s version of a highly linked hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that competes with Restylane; it is most frequently used to fill superficial lines and can last 8-12 months.
