Proven both effective and safe, Juvéderm is one of the best treatments for reversing signs of aging such as wrinkles and volume loss.
An Overview of Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm is an FDA approved dermal filler that is made of biocompatible hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that hydrates the skin and acts as a cushioning agent.,
Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC can be used to:
- Smoothen wrinkles and folds
- Replace lost volume in the cheeks, lips, eye area, and laugh lines
- Improve the appearance of age lines
- Make the skin look younger and smoother.
Since these fillers can be used interchangeably, the discretion lies with your doctor’s expertise. It is not uncommon for doctors to use a combination of both formulations to achieve a more natural effect. Both Juvéderm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC contain a small amount of anesthetic for your comfort.
The procedure typically lasts about 30-45 minutes. A tiny needle is used to inject the fillers into key areas of the skin. Although there is no downtime associated with both types, some patients may experience temporary swelling, redness or tenderness at the injection site.
Juvéderm Ultra XC
With the loss of skin volume, clients may appear older than they really are. Juvéderm Ultra XC was formulated for this exact reason – to give superficial wrinkles an extra boost of volume. Juvéderm Ultra is typically used around the eye and lip area where wrinkles tend to be more delicate. In the hands of Dr. Behroozan and his team your skin will look naturally fuller. Clients who have had this procedure done enjoy up to 6-9 months of noticeably younger skin.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
In contrast, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC has a more viscous formula and best utilized in the mid and deep layers of the skin. It is used for larger areas where wrinkles are more deep set and require more volume such as the face, cheeks or nasolabial folds. It visibly lifts the appearance of the skin, resulting in a more even texture. Results can be enjoyed for up to 9-12 months after the initial treatment.
