A Trusted Injectable for Grand Rapids, MI. Time may give you wisdom, but it also tends to give you lines on your face.
As components vital to healthy skin break down over time, wrinkles and folds form, showing to all the world that you have the benefit of years of experience—whether you want to broadcast that fact or not.
For women and men who prefer to reveal their age on their own terms, there is JUVÉDERM® XC. Grand Rapids, MI, plastic surgeon Dr. Bengtson and his injection specialists use this member of the family of smooth gel dermal fillers to quickly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth, forehead, eyes, and nose.
What Is JUVÉDERM® XC?
JUVÉDERM® XC is a hyaluronic-based injectable gel dermal filler offered for our Birmingham, Grand Rapids, and Detroit patients. Hyaluronic acid is found in every cell of our body. As a natural filler, this injectable is used in Michigan to treat mild to moderate facial creases by enhancing soft tissue volume to smooth a variety of wrinkles:
Comprised of non-animal sources, the gel mimics the natural moisture-binding qualities of the skin and is safely and slowly re-absorbed by your body over time.
It's safe, can be administered quickly, and offers long-lasting results. At the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center in Michigan, JUVÉDERM® is the most common agent we use to address creases around the mouth, given its natural, non-surgical outcome.
VECTRA® 3D Imaging of before-and-after images, along with a sophisticated virtual simulation, may also be used to help you visualize your post-injection results in Michigan.
Bengtson Center JUVEDERM® XC Basics
JUVÉDERM® XC and its fellow fillers from Allergan are made to treat static wrinkles, which form due to loss of volume and more in the skin. For dynamic wrinkles, created by years of muscles repeatedly contracting in the same place, patients can choose BOTOX® Cosmetic, which relaxes the muscles for smoother skin.
Various injectables can be combined to give the face a refreshed look not possible with a single produc or treatment. Known as a "liquid facelift," this technique is customized to the patient seeking rejuvenating results.
Despite time being a major factor in the formation of certain wrinkles on the face, age alone does not determine who would be a good candidate for dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® XC at our Grand Rapids practice. Women and men of various ages in Michigan choose facial rejuvenation to delay or improve visible signs of aging. The following factors generally define good candidates for JUVÉDERM® XC:
1. Common, temporary side effects include minimal bruising, redness, and swelling.
2. All cosmetic procedures carry the potential for risks, which will be fully discussed with you during your consultation.
3. Remember that results last up to one year and are not permanent, so repeat treatments will be necessary for patients who want to maintain their results.
