Juvéderm Ultra XC

What is Juvéderm Ultra XC?

Juvéderm Ultra XC is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that’s injected into thin lips, in the perioral region around the lips, or into the facial tissues with moderate to severe lines and folds. It’s the ideal non-surgical treatment to temporarily add fullness to your lips and diminish the prominent facial lines and folds around your nose and mouth.

How does Juvéderm Ultra XC Work?

Some people are born with thin lips, and some have thin lips because of age-related loss of volume. As you grow older, the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid from your skin leads to facial lines and folds that make you look old and tired. Juvéderm Ultra XC injects crystal-clear hyaluronic acid gel underneath the targeted facial tissues to provide a plumping effect, restoring your youthful contours.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is the primary ingredient in Juvéderm Ultra XC and most other dermal fillers. It’s a naturally-occurring component that’s abundantly found in the skin in your youth but gradually depletes with age, leading to wrinkles and the loss of facial volume. Hyaluronic acid binds large volumes of water to itself, giving your skin and lips a naturally voluminous, dewy, and hydrated appearance.

  • Perioral lines around the mouth.
  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines.

Juvéderm Ultra XC Treatment Overview

Step 1: Consultation

Your Juvéderm Ultra XC treatment starts with a private consultation with our providers. We review your medical history, assess your treatment areas, and discuss your cosmetic expectations. Based on the assessment, we curate the ideal Ultra XC treatment plan or recommend other treatments that might be better suited to your needs.

Step 2: Procedure

The cosmetic provider will mark the injection spots around your face for optimal precision. Ultra XC already contained an anesthetic ingredient called lidocaine, so you don’t need topical numbing cream. The provider delivers highly-calibrated doses of Ultra XC with ultrafine needles into the treatment areas — the number of injections depends on your goals.

Step 3: Recovery

You might experience mild to moderate swelling, redness, firmness, irritation, and itching around the treatment sites for up to 7 days. However, you can resume all your normal activities as soon as you leave the medical spa — there’s no downtime. You can also resume vigorous workouts in 24 hours.

Your Juvéderm Ultra XC Results

Juvéderm Ultra XC produces immediate results, but you’ll truly appreciate them once the side effects fade away. The results last for up to 12 months with optimal treatment, following which you can get maintenance treatments to extend the results. Your cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal Ultra XC frequency.
