Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica
There is a wide variety of dermal fillers available for patients who want to reduce the signs of aging in the facial area. At the Los Angeles | Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice of Dr. Eugene Kim, we prefer and recommend JUVÉDERM ® XC, a dermal filler that offers great results, including smooth skin texture and long-lasting refinement.
How JUVÉDERM ® XC Works
This facial filler comes in the form of an injectable gel comprised of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in skin, provides cell support that translates into improved volume for the facial areas you choose. Skin treated with JUVÉDERM® XC appears hydrated, refreshed, and rejuvenated. Our JUVÉDERM® XC patients report feeling younger and more vibrant after treatment.
What JUVÉDERM ® XC Treats
JUVÉDERM® XC is a great option if you want to reduce the look of facial imperfections, such as wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It can also be used to create a fuller lip appearance. Results are immediate, and there is no downtime after treatment. Results can last upwards of six months.
Your JUVÉDERM ® XC Session
Facial filler treatments can be completed in about 15 minutes, so they’re easy and convenient to attend over your lunch hour or between work or personal obligations. Dr. Kim uses a fine needle to gently insert the gel under the skin in problem areas. Most patients will not require anesthesia, but a topical numbing agent may be used if needed. JUVÉDERM ® XC also includes lidocaine, which makes it more comfortable than previous versions of the filler. We like JUVÉDERM ® XC because of its natural results, the longevity of cosmetic enhancement, and smooth, natural feel. Our patients also tell us that they like the smoothness and comfort. JUVÉDERM ® XC is safe for most skin types and colors and is the first hyaluronic-acid based filler to receive FDA approval for persons of color.
If you are searching for a wrinkle solution, JUVÉDERM ® XC may be your best bet. You can also combine our facial filler treatment with other surgical procedures, such as brow lift or eyelid lift, for optimal results.
