It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses.

Who should not use Juvederm?
Juvederm should not be used if you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, or under the age of 18. Juvederm must also be avoided by those with previous bad allergies, those with allergies to drugs that have required in-hospital treatment, or by people with bleeding disorders.
The use of Juvederm at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete.
What should I avoid before my treatment?
Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), St John’s wort, high doses of vitamin E supplements, or large amounts of alcohol. One should also avoid treatment if you have recently used drugs that thin your blood or prevent blood clotting. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

What should I do after my treatment?
Use cold compresses to reduce swelling. Avoid touching the treated area for the first 6 hours following treatment. After 6 hours, the area can be gently washed with soap and water. Avoid exposure to intense heat (tanning beds or sunbathing). Reduce the risk of facial cold sore recurrence that could be caused by needle punctures. A medication can be made available to you to minimize a potential outbreak. Avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment to avoid bruising and bleeding at injection site.
