What is JUVÉDERM® XC?
JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel works to add volume and hydration by restoring Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body, into treatment areas. Results are immediate and last up to a year or more with minimal recovery or downtime.
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is available in two formulations- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.

What can I expect during the procedure?
JUVÉDERM® XC is infused with lidocaine, a common anesthetic, so you'll be comfortable during treatment. Dr. Reichel has vast experience with injectable fillers: "I love to use JUVÉDERM® XC to improve the dark circles under the eyes. The consistency of this hyaluronic acid filler is perfect for smoothing out the shadows that make you look tired and older. JUVÉDERM® XC is also great for plumping and shaping lips."
