Juvéderm® Ultra XC is a facial filler made with hyaluronic acid and is used to smooth wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. In addition, it can add fullness and plumpness to the lips. Some people are born with thin lips and others lose volume in their lips over time. Juvéderm® Ultra XC provides natural results that can last up to a year.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It is a moisturizing and cushioning agent that keeps the skin full and youthful. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the face or lips, patients see a temporary increase in volume and smoothness. Juvéderm® Ultra XC also contains lidocaine, which reduces pain associated with the injection. Juvéderm® Ultra XC is thicker than Juvéderm® and can be used on deeper wrinkles and is intended for patients looking for more dramatic volume to the lips.
What to Expect
A Juvéderm® Ultra XC treatment takes less than 30 minutes and requires no downtime. Most patients return to work immediately. Side effects are minimal and include redness, pain, swelling, or bruising. The plumping effects of Juvéderm® Ultra XC typically last between 9 months and 1 year.
