If you are beginning to show the signs of aging or simply want to add some volume to hollow areas in your face, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC might be a great solution for you. This dermal filler can give you added volume and lift hollow areas to create a more youthful and beautiful appearance that looks and feels natural.
What is JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is an injectable dermal filler that is composed of a hyaluronic acid gel and lidocaine. It is a thicker filler than some of the other fillers in the JUVÉDERM® line, making it an excellent choice for deeper lines such as nasolabial folds at the sides of your mouth or to add volume to hollow areas such as your cheeks.
How long do the results last?
When you receive injections of JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, you can expect your results to last from nine to 12 months. The amount of time might vary depending on the area that is treated and your skin.
How long before you can see the results?
You will be able to see some results immediately after you receive your treatment. Over the next one to two weeks, your results will become more apparent. The hyaluronic acid inside of the JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC filler is hydrophilic, which means that it attracts water. This helps to give more fullness to the treated areas from underneath your skin. The results of your treatment will look and feel natural, and you will still be able to make normal facial expressions.
What can you expect during treatment?
The actual injection process should take around 30 minutes or less. You might be asked to arrive up to 30 minutes before your scheduled treatment so that a topical anesthetic can be applied and given time to take effect. Once your treatment is over, you may be given an ice pack. Immediately after their treatment, most people are able to go right back and continue on with the rest of their day. Since the JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC filler contains lidocaine, the filler has a built-in anesthetic to minimize the discomfort that you might experience from the injections.
