The buzz around our office today is Juvederm XC, the newest improvement in fillers. This is the same Juvederm that we have been using and loving for years, but it is mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs the tissues. We have been excited to get this in and start using it, and — after the first few treatments — we are even more excited about it!
Yesterday, we did a side by side comparison only using a topical anesthetic on both sides. We injected Juvederm XC on one side, and regular Juvederm on the other side. Our patient experienced a tremendous difference. Not only was the injection itself much more comfortable with the new formulation, there was a lot less pain afterward. And this allowed the whole process to be more pleasant, and quicker. Our “test subject” has had just about every filler that we have used, and said that this was the best yet.
So if you have been thinking about fillers, or are already having them, this is a great step forward. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
