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.
