Frequently Asked Questions

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found on your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds.

There are two different types of wrinkles:

  • Dynamic wrinkles are caused when muscles contract to make facial expressions such as smiles and frowns.
  • Static wrinkles develop because our skin’s natural substances (such as collagen and hyaluronic acid), which provide structure and volume, decrease over time.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® XC are two possible ways to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Both are non-surgical, but they work differently:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: Injected beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity which is one of the causes of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles.
  • JUVÉDERM® XC: Injected into the skin to temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles such as those around the nose and mouth.

JUVÉDERM® XC is a non-surgical filler your doctor uses to instantly smooth out the lines along the sides of your nose and mouth. It can provide natural-looking results for up to a year with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM® XC is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), manufactured using proprietary HYLACROSS™ technology.

JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler is approved for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, also known as parentheses or smile lines).

Do not use this product if you have severe allergies or a history of severe allergic reactions. You should also not use this product if you have allergies to lidocaine or the proteins used to make hyaluronic acid. Your doctor will determine if JUVÉDERM® XC treatment is right for you.

JUVÉDERM® XC is the only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved* to last up to one year with optimal treatment, and JUVÉDERM® XC was studied in all skin types.†‡ Our unique manufacturing process uses HYLACROSS™ technology to provide a high concentration of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid.

* In the United States, JUVÉDERM® XC is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds.)

† Most subjects acquired optimal correction at initial treatment. Some subjects required up to 2 touch-ups to achieve optimal correction.

‡ This includes all JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel formulations.

Your doctor injects JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as parentheses (smile) lines and marionette lines.

JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the nose and mouth such as parentheses (smile) lines. Results may last up to one year with optimal treatment.

Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. JUVÉDERM® XC is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. Your doctor may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.

The injection process can be performed during a brief office visit. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with your doctor prior to treatment. Touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal results. Less gel (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.

JUVÉDERM® XC correction is temporary and may last up to one year with optimal treatment and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC may last up to 2 years. Therefore, touch-up injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain optimal results. Less gel (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.

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 reaction 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.
