WHAT IS IT?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a smooth gel filler that instantly smooths away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. It can smooth out those lines for up to one year with only one treatment! In fact, JUVÉDERM® is the only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-approved to last up to one year with initial treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a hyaluronic acid filler derived from a natural substance that is found throughout the human body. In its natural state, hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin and joints. Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic, biodegradable versions of those naturally-occurring sugars and are considered to be extremely safe.
JUVÉDERM® works by helping to replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost with age, adding volume to fill out and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds.
Our experienced nurse injector will consult with you prior to your appointment to help determine the amount of JUVÉDERM® recommended. The filler is formulated with 0.3% powdered lidocaine to provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is approved for patients over the age of 21.
HOW MANY SYRINGES DO YOU RECOMMEND?
The number of syringes needed will depend on your age, the amount of volume loss and the amount of correction desired. We'd recommend a free consultation with our expert nurse injector to determine your treatment plan.
