Juvederm® Injectable Gel
Performed at our Northside (Atlanta, GA) & Phipps Plaza locations.
Juvéderm®XC is a cosmetic skin treatment performed by AYA’s licensed nurse injector to fill, or re-plump, the furrows that develop on the cheeks and lips with age as collagen production decreases. Juvederm® XC is an injectable gel containing a form of hyaluronic acid, which your body naturally produces in its youth, to keep your skin supple and smooth. Juvederm®XC is infused with proportional amounts of lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to minimize any pain associated with the treatment. Most Juvederm® facial rejuvenation patients report visible cosmetic improvement that lasts for up to a year. Like the other dermal injectable products offered by AYA (Botox® , Radiesse® , and Sculptra® Aesthetic), treatment merely consists of a few short, minimally painful injections to specific facial regions.

Juvederm® Treatment FAQs
How long do the results from Juvederm® injections last?
Most wrinkle reduction patients who receive Juvederm® see visible wrinkle reduction for six months to a year following their initial treatment.
Are there any side-effects associated with Juvederm® XC treatment?
Because Juvederm® treatment results are temporary, there are very few major side effects associated with the treatment. Some Juvederm® patients report temporary redness and swelling at the injection site that subsides within a couple of days.
Are Juvederm® XC injections painful?
Juvederm® XC is unique in that one of its ingredients is the local anesthetic lidocaine. The mixture minimizes any pain associated with the procedure. Additionally, your AYA nurse injector may also use a topical treatment or ice to numb the area prior to treatment.
What areas can be treated with Juvederm® XC?
Juvederm® is FDA approved to treat the wrinkles that develop between the nose and the mouth (smile lines), the creases of the cheek (marionette lines), and the small vertical lines that can appear along the upper lip.
