JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC.
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 several Juvederm fillers 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 is a type of sugar that can hydrate the skin since it holds water, and 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 does JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC work?
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, though it’s also used in the mid-face.
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. Volume loss in the mid-face, or cheek area, can cause a hollowed out appearance. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can refill that area, plumping up the cheeks and gently lifting loose skin hanging below the jawline
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?
If you are unhappy with facial aging and want to restore youthful volume for moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, then you’re likely a good candidate for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. The ideal candidate is in relatively good health and never had an allergic reaction to dermal fillers or any of the ingredients in Ultra Plus XC.
What pain relief options are available during a Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treatment?
The pain relief options include applying a topical agent. Due to the size of the needle used and the presence of lidocaine in the injectable product, most people describe this and other injectables as comfortable.
What are the potential side-effects of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?
The most common side-effects of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC are swelling and bruising at the injection site, but these go away within a few days. Lumps can also develop, but this is usually avoided as the injector at Nuderma Health & Med Spa is highly skilled. It’s important to choose the best providers to avoid adverse outcomes.
How much does cost?
The cost of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treatment varies based on how much product you will need to see results. We offer specials on fillers at different times of the year, and you can also sign up for Allergan’s Brilliant DistinctionsⓇ program to save on treatment costs.
1Individual results may vary. 2All manufacturer claims, in regards to the benefits, process, length/effectiveness of treatments, how soon you’ll see results or heal, or claims of minimal side effects such as minor redness or mild discomfort or no downtime, are provided by the pharmaceutical manufacturers as part of their guidelines in promoting their product and are backed by case studies/peer-reviewed publications and are published on their individual websites. 3Testimonials are the opinions of real clients that wanted to provide them and express their opinion to others. When written, the only editing done was to fix minor grammatical/syntax errors and/or to truncate extended testimonials that, while nice, went a bit long. Video testimonials are unedited. 4Treatments and services that are time-related (such as fees per a “20 minute session”) are rooted in the fact that most appointments (i.e. the historical average amount of time required to complete most areas we treat) take that amount of time; however, it may be recommended or advised or necessary that more than one session time is required to achieve whatever affect you’re looking for (such as someone wanting to treat many areas of their body vs someone simply wanting to treat their hands). A quick consultation in our office will provide you the exact time required to treat whatever you wish since treatment areas have a direct impact on time required to treat such areas. 5Superlatives, when describing services/products, are manufacturer claims and, in the end, it’s your opinion as to what service/product is right/effective/best for you. 6Internal comparison claims comparing one technology to another (such as stating that a new product is x% better than the previous model, similar to how a 2018 model vehicle has many advances/improvements over a 2010 vehicle), when comparisons are done within the same company’s lineup, are the manufacturer’s statement-of-fact and reflect the latest science and/or breakthrough that, when released as a product, is the best/most effective at the time within their own product lineup — they are not claims comparing their product against other manufacturers’ products. 7Videos, which we have chosen to add links to on our website, are either local television coverage pieces or third-party videos that we feel are great for learning and gaining an overview of the process of several services we offer; but third-party videos (e.g. those in the public domain, such as YouTube) in no way should be construed as an endorsement of Nuderma Health and Med Spa and/or our services specifically. They are meant as an awareness tool to help you decide upon common treatments provided by Nuderma Health and Med Spa and med spa providers nationwide. Some videos are produced by the pharmaceutical manufacturers and others are by service providers.
