Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
As you age, your skin loses elasticity and moisture. This normal aging process, as well as environmental factors such as sun exposure, causes different facial lines to form and become more noticeable over the years.
Water’s Edge Dermatology offers the Juvéderm family of hyaluronic acid fillers to address multiple facial concerns. Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is a long-lasting solution to smooth away the deeper lines along the sides of your nose and mouth. Juvéderm Voluma® instantly lifts and contours your cheeks, while Juvéderm Ultra adds fullness to your lips. The results are so natural-looking that Juvéderm treatments have become the most popular collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US.
What is Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and how does it work?
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps to add volume and hydration. It creates a fuller, more youthful appearance by plumping the skin to add volume and smooth the lines and folds around your nose and mouth, including:
- Parentheses lines (nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth)
- Marionette lines (the vertical creases that run from the corner of your lips toward your chin)
- Vertical lines above the lip
- Lines at the corner of your lips
What can I expect from treatment?
You and your Water’s Edge Dermatology practitioner will first discuss your goals for treatment to determine where to administer the injections. The provider then eases Juvéderm injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your smile lines or parentheses. The injection contains a common anesthetic called lidocaine to reduce discomfort. A Juvéderm Ultra Plus treatment takes about 15 minutes, with no recovery time involved.
When will I see results and for how long will they last?
Immediately following the procedure, your wrinkles and folds are visibly reduced. This nonsurgical treatment is safe, effective, and lasts for up to a year depending on the areas treated. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing.
