What Our Filler Clients Are Saying

Allison Brook

The staff at MedAesthetics are so amazing. I got Botox and filler for the first time this past year and was so nervous but the staff were so knowledgeable and reassuring it was such an easy process. The renovations of the business have it looking so classy and professional, I could spend all day there!

Tana Einarson

Everyone was so friendly and helpful and took the time to explain everything to me and allowed me to ask questions as a first time client. I knew that day that I wanted to be a part of MedAesthetics! I love their idea of the Gem monthly plan. I also had an excellent experience with the Hydrafacial and Botox.

Chloe Yazdani

I love coming to MedAesthetics! Their staff are all so friendly and professional. I am so happy with my Botox and filler results! Michelle is amazing with communicating what she believes will be best for my face so that I can look and feel my best. I am so obsessed with my lip filler results, I would suggest her to anyone that is looking to augment their look.

JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is a Health Canada-approved dermal filler that, according to its manufacturer, Allergan, Inc., is designed to “temporarily treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds” in people older than 21. Unlike the original JUVÉDERM injectable gel, JUVÉDERM XC is infused with lidocaine to make its injection more comfortable.

JUVÉDERM XC is a smooth-consistency gel that restores volume to the skin, and smooths away moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. In terms of the skin, HA‘s role is to deliver nutrients and hydration, and act as a cushioning agent. Young, healthy skin contains a lot of HA, but factors that include aging and sun exposure reduce the amount, causing skin to lose structure and volume. JUVÉDERM XC is most effective in improving the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth on both sides of the face.

JUVÉDERM XC Injectable Gel Procedure

JUVÉDERM XC injections take about 15 minutes to administer in a doctor‘s office. A fine needle is used for the injection, which is given under the skin in the targeted area to add volume or fill in wrinkles and folds. Because JUVÉDERM XC contains lidocaine to improve comfort, an anesthetic may not be needed. However, a doctor may still elect to use a topical anesthetic on the area to be treated before giving the injection. Afterword, the doctor may gently massage the treated area(s).

Once treatment is completed, patients can return, with virtually no downtime, to their regular activities. For the first 24 hours after treatment, to reduce the risk of complications, patients should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and alcohol consumption.

Results of JUVÉDERM XC Injectable Gel

The results of JUVÉDERM XC are visible immediately after injection; any swelling and bruising, to which ice can be applied, should subside during the next few days. Results can last 6 to 9 months, and, in some cases, up to year. However, according to its manufacturer, “Results from injectable dermal filler vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental ‘touch up‘ treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal correction of . . . wrinkles and folds.”
