Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a FDA-approved dermal filler injection that adds volume to lines or folds of the face and adds volume to the lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains lidocaine to help manage any discomfort associated with the injection. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains hyaluronic acid, which helps add more volume that lasts for up to 12 months.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains hyaluronic acid gel to retain more moisture, creating a plumper yet natural-looking pout.
The procedure takes between 15 to 20 minutes to perform. During this procedure, your practitioner will carefully inject Ultra Plus at precise areas of the lips and/or face to create the most natural-looking augmentation. The ultimate goal is to add structure and volume without looking overly artificial. Lidocaine numbs the treatment area to ensure that the patient feels comfortable throughout the procedure.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC comes with minimal side effects, which include swelling, bruising, and slight bleeding at the injection site. These side effects disappear within a week or two after the procedure.
Results can be immediately visible, with optimal results achieved after two weeks.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC results can last for up to 12 months.
