Bethesda, MD area patients ask, what is Juvéderm XC®?

Wrinkles around the nose and mouth, Washington Dermatology Center

Many patients who have researched anti-aging solutions may have found that the most effective way to address significant skin laxity and the resulting lines and wrinkles is with a plastic surgery treatment known as a facelift. However, patients with mild to moderate signs of aging may not need such an invasive procedure to appear more youthful. Dr. Ron Prussick and the associates at Washington Dermatology Center in the Bethesda area may instead recommend dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectables that are safe, easy, and effective at combating wrinkles, lines, and folds on the face. One of the popular injectables used for addressing texture of the skin is Juvéderm XC®.

What is Juvéderm XC®? This injectable provides immediate results that can last up to a year with optimal treatment recommendations. This injectable is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA approved for the use on moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm XC® uses Hylacross technology to provide long-lasting results, and includes lidocaine for improved comfort during the injections. It is a desirable alternative to traditional Juvéderm® as well as other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as:

  • Restylane®
  • Belotero®
  • Radiesse®

Juvéderm XC® is a wonderful solution for patients who are struggling with the signs of aging. It can offer longer results than traditional fillers, and can combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that can make patients look older—and feel self-conscious about their appearance. Juvéderm XC® is affordable and many patients find that they will be able to maintain the results without breaking their budget.

If you live in or around the Bethesda, MD area, and you have determined that dermal fillers such as Juvéderm XC® may be right for you, contact the team at Washington Dermatology Center. Dr. Ron Prussick and his associates are here to assist patients in determining which cosmetic treatments are most appropriate for their unique needs and help them in attaining the services required to look and feel their best.
