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 XC 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 Grand Rapids JUVÉDERM XC post-injection results.
Bengtson Center JUVÉDERM 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 product 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 by repeating treatments of JUVÉDERM XC Grand Rapids patients can maintain their results.
