As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
Juvederm® XC: for fine lines and wrinkles.
Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines (also known as nasolabial folds) and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, Juvederm® XC adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the natural-looking, long-lasting results you want. It is often used in the nasolabial folds, which are the lines that extend from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth – otherwise known as the laugh and smile lines.
This product contains lidocaine within the filler so that it is more comfortable for patients when it is placed in the skin. It can also be used off-label for lines that start at the corner of the mouth and extend downward, known as the marionette lines as well as in the lips.
Since it is a hyaluronic acid filler, it can be reversed, and it usually lasts on average six months to one year.
Our goal here at The Dermatology of Institute of Boston is protect the health of our patients and staff. To continue caring for our patients during these uncertain times, while strictly adhering to the guidelines set by the CDC, we will be only offering virtual consultations. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
