Juvederm in Charlotte, NC Darst Dermatology helps you put your best face forward with personalized Juvederm® treatments in Charlotte, Matthews, and the surrounding North Carolina communities. What Is Juvederm®? Juvederm® is an advanced dermal filler that improves your skin’s texture and reduces wrinkles. It’s highly effective at improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around your lips and nose, including the following: Smile lines between your nose and corners of your mouth. Vertical lines above your lips. Marionette lines at the corners of your mouth. How Does It Work? Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that exists in the deeper layers of your skin but decreases as you age. Hyaluronic acid attracts water, so when it’s injected into your wrinkles, they becomes fuller, more elastic, and – most importantly – less noticeable. Juvederm® is specially formulated to eliminate very fine lines and significantly decrease deeper folds and creases. Results are immediately noticeable, and the treatment lasts up to a year. Why Is Juvederm® Different? Juvederm® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With Juvederm® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want. View our Juvederm before and after gallery Are There Any Side Effects?
