Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Refresh & Revitalize
Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC add volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.
What Is Juvederm
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to smooth out lines in your face and restore the youthful volume that can diminish over time. From the makers of Botox, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is just one of the Juvederm collection products that can be used to refresh and revitalize your appearance. The two main ingredients found in Juvederm Ultra Plus XC are hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by your body. It creates a kind of natural cushion that pumps up volume wherever it is injected. Lidocaine, the second ingredient, is a mild local anesthetic. This helps reduce any discomfort when the gel is injected into the skin.
How Juvederm Ultra Plus XC Can Reverse the Signs of Facial Aging
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a thicker filler that helps restore moderate-to-severe volume loss in the face. The most notable areas of the face where Ultra Plus is used are in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Nasolabial folds are the lines visible between the nose and the corners of the mouth. These folds are commonly known as laugh lines, and with age, they can begin to look more pronounced and deeper. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can help minimize these folds. Similarly, the filler can combat marionette lines or the lines that head vertically down from the corners of your mouth to the chin. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can refill that area, plumping up the cheeks and gently lifting loose skin hanging below the jawline.
When Will the Results Be Visible?
You will probably see some results from the treatment right away. Folds, lines, and wrinkles are eliminated, and increased volume and elasticity can be visible right away. The results will improve from the time of the treatment until about three weeks later. You can expect them to last about 6 months, and then you can opt for additional injections to maintain your more youthful look. You might be happy to learn that subsequent treatments typically require less of the dermal filler, making any annual visits even quicker and simpler than the previous ones.
What is the Recovery Time with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?
There is little to no need for recovery time after a Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treatment. You might want to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, or high temperatures for about 24 hours after the treatment just to avoid any possible itching, redness, or breakdown of the filler before it fully sets.
