Juvederm XC Treatment
Metamorphosis Med Spa, in Downers Grove, Illinois, provides Juvederm XC treatments throughout the entire Chicago and DuPage County area.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment*, there is minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant!). So you can make an appointment to stop by your healthcare professional’s office for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice—and get right back to your daily routine. Here’s what to expect when you visit your healthcare professional’s office for treatment.
JUVÉDERM® XC is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, (such as nasolabial folds). JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is available in two formulations—JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds in the skin.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles in the skin. Anesthetic may not be needed prior to treatment since JUVÉDERM® XC is specially formulated with lidocaine (a type of anesthetic) to improve comfort during treatment.† 1Your physician may also elect to use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before the injections. Your healthcare professional will then ease the JUVÉDERM®XC under your skin (where wrinkles and folds occur) to replace lost skin volume. Following the injection, your healthcare professional may gently massage the treated areas.
JUVEDERM ULTRA XC TREATMENT
Metamorphosis Med Spa, in Downers Grove, Illinois, provides Juvederm Ultra XC treatments throughout the entire Chicago and DuPage County area.
Juvéderm Injectable Gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is extremely safe and effective and is injected into areas where moderate to severe facial wrinkles occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and gives a smoother appearance, while restoring volume and smoothing away wrinkles and folds in the face. Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler. This treatment allows for easy injections while patients get noticeable and natural-looking results right away.
While being treated, you may be given a topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the area that is being treated if needed. It is most effective on the lines that can form around your eyes and mouth, but it can be used to help with wrinkles anywhere on your face and hands. Juvéderm is the top-selling filler, and most patients see a dramatic improvement after getting just one treatment.
