Juvederm Ultra XC
Juvederm Ultra XC – Lip enhancement and dermal filler
Juvederm Ultra XC injectable gel is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. This synthetic version of hyaluronic acid is a smooth gel combined with a small amount of local anesthetic, which increases the comfort of filler injections. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding molecule that keeps the soft tissues of the face plump, hydrated and youthful while stimulating collagen production. Juvederm Ultra XC is often used to smooth wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth and to enhance lips.
What does it do?
Juvederm Ultra XC temporarily restores volume and fills facial wrinkles and folds leading to a smoother appearance of the face. Most patients notice a reduction in wrinkles in only 1 treatment. Depending on the area treated, your skin, and the injection technique the injections will last approximately 6 months.
How long is the procedure & downtime?
Juvederm Ultra XC is a non-invasive in office procedure that can be completed in about 30 minutes. However, our goal is for you to leave the office with beautiful, natural results, without regard to how long it takes. Most patients experience limited downtime, if any- 2-3 days of occasional, mild swelling and bruising which is easily concealed with makeup.
How soon will I see results?
Results are immediate! You will look volumized, refreshed, and more youthful before you step out our doors. However, please remember, it’s best to receive filler injections at least 2 weeks prior to any important event.
