Injectables add volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm XC is the injectable of choice for patients of Lux Plastic Surgery.
Juvéderm XC replaces hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally hydrating substance found in young, healthy looking skin. Juvéderm HC is the only FDA approved HA filler to last up to one year. It is formulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to provide a more comfortable experience during treatment. With a quick, in-office procedure and minimal downtime, results can start to be seen right away with final results within 3-5 days in most cases.
Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.
Plan to spend 15-20 minutes at your initial consultation with Dr. Mukerji. During this consultation, you will discuss your goals, your plastic surgery options and go over the risks and benefits involved with an injectable. Your decision to have an injectable is a highly personal one that not everyone will understand. The important thing is how you feel about it.
Prior to your consultation, make a list of questions. Many things will be covered during your consultation and it is easy to forget all the questions you had. Be sure to let us know if you smoke, the medications you take including vitamins, and any other health problems. Be aware that smoking causes the blood vessels to constrict which reduces blood flow, and the oxygen it carries, to the surgical area. When your blood supply is reduced, tissues heal more slowly and there is an increased risk of complications.
