JUVÉDERM® XC North Shore, Hawaii

Juvederm® fillers at The Medical Spa of Hawaii on the North Shore of Oahu.

Conveniently located on the North Shore of Oahu, The Medical Spa of Hawaii offers professional Juvederm® fillers.

JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel with lidocaine for added comfort is for injection into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® XC is also used as lip filler to add the extra plumpness that you desire. JUVÉDERM® Voluma can also be used to help build up your cheek bone area in order to allow for a more softer and natural look to your face, while smoothing out wrinkles.

JUVÉDERM® can last from 6-12 months.

What are possible side effects?

For JUVÉDERM® XC, most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and last 7 days or less. The most common side effects include temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.

There is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if laser procedures and chemical peeling are performed after treatment.  Patients who experience skin injury near the site of injection with these products may be at a higher risk for side effects. Tell your health care professional if you are on therapy used to decrease the body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Use of these products may result in an increased risk of infection. Tell your health care professional if you are using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinners, as this may result in increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
