Three months: that’s been the standard effectiveness period for injectable cosmetic fillers ever since BOTOX® went to market. If you’re planning on getting injectables, you probably expect to pay for the treatment 3-4 times a year, like many patients in the Miami area. But as newer skin treatments like Juvederm XC show, the technology behind these skin care solutions is getting better.
While many skin treatments require multiple injections every year, the results from Juvederm XC can last up to 12 months. That’s only one visit to the plastic surgeon’s office every year, all for a treatment that uses natural ingredients to restore lost volume and smooth away wrinkles in the skin around your nose and mouth.
Juvederm XC can be used to treat:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Lip lines
- Deep corners of the mouth
The active ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a compound that is found naturally in your facial tissue, but which tends to decrease over time as you get older. Juvederm restores the hyaluronic acid in your skin to its old levels, giving your face more volume and fewer wrinkles in the process. It’s a non-invasive and cost-effective way to look healthier and more energized.
