The undereye area is often one of the first parts of your face to experience noticeable skin aging. Bags, dark circles, and wrinkles can develop there and make you appear haggard and prematurely old. Sun exposure, genetics, and smoking can hasten the development of this process. In addition to these factors, the gradual loss a substance called hyaluronic acid can also speed up the formation of bags and wrinkles in the undereye area. This hyaluronic acid deficiency can lead to a loss of skin volume and elasticity. Thankfully, Juvederm® XCexists.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by your own body that has a special affinity for water molecules. This special substance acts like a sponge inside of your skin, attracting and binding water within it, making it available to your skin cells. Getting older means that your body begins producing less hyaluronic acid, and your skin and area under your eyes will begin to develop lines and wrinkles as a result of thinning skin there.

What is Juvederm® XC?

Juvederm® XC is a hyaluronic acid filler used to enhance facial volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and aging under the eyes. It is administered as an injection in the comfort of our office.

How long your results will last depends upon factors like genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices. Generally, Juvederm® XC results last multiple months, but require periodic replacement after the product has been absorbed by your skin during this time.

It is important to also remember that your skin will continue to age normally during this time. You should maintain any skin care regimen that you have to ensure that the aging process continues at a slower rate.
