If you have naturally thin lips or have noticed that your lips have become thinner over time, you may be searching for something that can add fullness and plumpness. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable dermal filler that is designed to give you the smooth, beautiful fullness that you desire. It also works well for wrinkles and lines around your lips and nose. Here is some information about Juvederm Ultra XC and the benefits that it can offer you.
What is Juvederm Ultra XC?
Juvederm Ultra XC is an injectable filler that is made up of hyaluronic acid, water, and 0.3 percent lidocaine. When hyaluronic acid is mixed with water, it forms a gel that can help to add volume where it is needed. The lidocaine that is contained in the Juvederm Ultra XC injectable is a local anesthetic that can help to lessen the immediate discomfort of the injection while numbing the area.
Why is Juvederm Ultra XC special?
Juvederm Ultra XC is FDA approved and offers the smoothness and plumpness that you want with added comfort. It is an optimal choice for people who want to restore lip fullness and to restore the volume below your skin so that nasolabial folds are minimized.
How long does the procedure take?
Injections of Juvederm Ultra XC normally take less than 30 minutes. While you might want to take the rest of your day off from work, it is not necessary. You can return to work after your injections and finish out your day with only minor discomfort. You should see the results immediately, and you can expect them to last for as long as one year. Most people who have received Juvederm Ultra XC injections need less of the Juvederm Ultra XC during subsequent treatments.
Who is a good candidate for Juvederm Ultra XC?
Anyone who is an adult over the age of 21 who wants to have more fullness to their lips or to minimize the appearance of lines and folds around the nose and mouth may benefit from Juvederm Ultra XC injections.
