WHAT IS JUVÉDERM® XC?
JUVÉDERM® XC is a FDA approved, non-surgical filler that True Med Spa to instantly smooth out the lines along the sides of your nose and mouth.

WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID (HA)?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found within 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, folds and creases in the face. Juvederm XC is a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) manufactured using proprietary HYLACROSS technology. The treatment is an FDA approved, non-surgical filler that True Med Spa uses to instantly smooth out the lines along the sides of your nose and mouth ( the areas in your face that tend to show the greatest loss of your naturally occurring HA). Juvederm is an excellent skin care option that will provide natural-looking results for up to a year.**
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX® AND JUVÉDERM® XC?
BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® XC are two very effective non-surgical options to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles however, they are administered differently.
• Botox Cosmetic: Injected beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity. The reason the injection is done beneath the skin’s surface is due to muscle activity throughout the years which is the primary contributor of frown lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles.
• Juvederm XC: Injected into the skin ( not beneath) to temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles such as those around the nose and mouth.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT WITH JUVÉDERM® XC?
Prior to any injectables, you will want to consult with your primary care physician in order to ensure Juvederm is the right skin care solution for you. If you have severe allergies, a history of severe allergic reactions, allergies to lidocaine or proteins that are used to make the manufactured hyaluronic acid, Juvederm may not be the right solution for you. Again, consult with your primary care physician prior to any injectables.
