- What makes JUVÉDERM® XC different from other dermal fillers?
JUVÉDERM® XC is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved* to last up to 1 year after initial treatment. Juvederm’s unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel.

And, JUVÉDERM® is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
- What will treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel accomplish?

- Is treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel painful?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency gel of JUVÉDERM® XC allows Dr. Detlefsen to administer it easily and smoothly. And, JUVÉDERM® XC is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Additionally, JUVÉDERM® XC is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experienc. We will also numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.
- Does the correction last forever?
No. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.
- What are the possible side effects of JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel?
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 injections 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.
- Can people with different skin tones/colors be treated with JUVÉDERM®XC?
Yes. In fact, 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.
