Smooth Smile Lines with Juvéderm® XC Dermal Fillers

As you age, your skin gradually loses elasticity, often resulting in fine lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth known as smile lines, parentheses lines, or laugh lines. At Summit Skin & Vein Care, we offer a treatment that softens these fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin smooth and youthful for up to a year post-treatment.

If you’re interested in your options for achieving smoother, younger-looking skin, call Summit Skin & Vein Care today! We’ll get you set up for your complimentary skincare consultation to start your journey to a more confident you.

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm® is a gel dermal filler that is used to smooth out laugh lines or folds that appear as parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth. Juvéderm® can help make your skin look so naturally smooth that everyone will notice how youthful and radiant you look, but they won’t be able to put their finger on exactly why or what’s causing the difference.

How does Juvéderm® XC Work?

When Juvederm® is injected into the skin, it works to reduce and smooth the appearance of wrinkles and laugh lines by adding structure and volume underneath sunken and sagging skin—without surgery.

Juvéderm® XC is a dermal filler that is used to provide natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. The active ingredient in Juvéderm® XC is hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. When injected into the skin, Juvéderm® XC plumps up the tissue and smooths away wrinkles. The results are immediate and can last for up to one year. Juvéderm® XC is a safe and effective way to achieve a youthful appearance without surgery or downtime.

How Juvéderm® XC Utilizes Hyaluronic Acid

Juvederm® is made from a substance known as hyaluronic acid—a complex sugar that is naturally present in all living cells. In addition to collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is a major component of the skin’s connective tissue. Unlike salicylic acid, which is notorious for drying out skin, hyaluronic acid actually works to lock in moisture. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain water and is able to absorb an incredible 1,000 times its weight. Juvederm® uses hyaluronic acid to help the skin increase its ability to stay hydrated, which helps to reduce laugh lines and wrinkles.

How long does Juvéderm® XC treatment last?

Juvéderm® gel is produced using HYLACROSS™ technology, which promotes a duration of results for 6-18 months. HYLACROSS™ technology gives the product a smooth gel consistency that helps support the long-lasting, smooth and natural look that the Juvéderm® XC laugh lines treatment is known for.
