What is Juvederm Ultra XC?

Juvederm Ultra XC is a highly effective, non-surgical hyaluronic acid filler designed to correct mild facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is non-allergenic and made from a compound that occurs naturally in skin tissue and elsewhere in the human body. Juvederm treatments are not permanent. After about a year, the hyaluronic acid is absorbed naturally by your body. This is a significant benefit for those who are hesitant to make a lifelong commitment to their new look.

While Juvederm injections are not painful for most patients, Juvederm Ultra XC is formulated with lidocaine, a mild numbing agent that further reduces discomfort during treatment.

What Issues can Juvederm Ultra XC Address?

Juvederm Ultra XC’s smooth, youth-conferring gel offers a wide range of aesthetic applications. As it is a thinner product comprising fine molecules, Juvederm Ultra XC is best used for areas that require maximum silkiness, such as:

  • Vertical lip lines: the area between the top of your lips and the bottom of your nose
  • Marionette lines: the area just beneath your lips
  • Corner lines: the outer edges of your smile
  • Parentheses (smile) lines: the vertical, parentheses-shaped creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth

Juvederm Ultra XC is also frequently used to restore volume to the cheeks and under the eyes, as well as plumping flat, thin lips.

What is the Juvederm Ultra XC Treatment Process?

The first step in the rejuvenation process is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Monica Bonakdar, who will determine if Juvederm Ultra XC is the best option to deliver the results you need, or if another dermal filler or cosmetic solution would be more beneficial.

During your treatment, the injection site is prepared and Juvederm Ultra XC is injected with a fine needle. Depending on the areas that need treatment, the injection process can be completed within about 15 minutes. Your results will appear immediately. As with any injectable treatment, you may experience some swelling and discomfort at the injection site.

There is no recovery time need for Juvederm Ultra XC treatment, and you may resume work and normal activities right away.
