Juvéderm® Ultra XC

An advanced dermal filler with an ultra, smooth consistency, designed to restore volume and hydration for skin elasticity and support that diminishes due to aging and environmental factors. Best to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, under the eyes in the tear troughs, and for lip augmentation, giving your face a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance and restoring youthful volume.

Over the years, your skin starts to lose some of its vitality, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face and neck. But these changes are not etched in stone, not when there are dermal fillers like Juvéderm® Ultra XC. Add youthful volume to your face and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with this incredible injectable.


What is Juvéderm® Ultra XC?

Juvéderm® Ultra XC is a type of dermal filler that was approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles and lip fullness in 2010. Similar to regular Juvéderm® products, Ultra is made with water, lidocaine, and a synthetic hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm Ultra XC is used by individuals who want to plump up their skin, banish nasolabial folds, and boost their appearance by injecting a safe gel beneath the skin.

How Does Juvéderm® Ultra XC Work?

As mentioned above, Juvéderm Ultra XC contains a mixture of hyaluronic acid and water. When hyaluronic acid and water are mixed, a gel is formed that can be used to add natural-looking volume beneath the skin. When used around wrinkles, the gel “fills in” the lines, smoothing the skin and making it look younger. Juvéderm Ultra XC also contains 0.3 percent lidocaine to reduce the amount of pain from the injection.

The main difference between Juvéderm Ultra XC and other Juvéderm products is the quality of the filler. Ultra is much thinner, helping it fill in wrinkles and nasolabial folds more easily than other Juvéderm products.

What Are The Benefits of Juvéderm® Ultra XC?

Juvéderm® Ultra XC is a highly effective treatment for filling folds, wrinkles, and restoring your youthful appearance and skin health. Here are some benefits to consider:

  • Increased volumes and fullness in the lips
  • Limited sagging around the jawline
  • Minimized appearance of nasolabial folds
  • Smoothed skin
  • Uses natural hyaluronic acid
  • Approved by the FDA as safe and effective

What to Expect During a Juvéderm Ultra XC Treatment

You begin your journey with a consultation with a caring and experienced DrSkin specialist. After learning about your medical history and aesthetic goals, we can determine whether Juvéderm® Ultra XC is the correct choice.

On the day of your scheduled appointment, you can expect to be in and out of the office in under an hour. Most Juvéderm® Ultra injections take only a minute to administer, but you will need to have your face cleaned and a small amount of lidocaine applied to the treatment area. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, a skilled specialist will inject the dermal filler.

You should feel no pain, but there may be some tingling or pressure.

After that, you are free to go about your day. Few people experience any pain, and so you do not have to plan for any downtime. Consult the after care instructions that you will be given at the office to ensure you receive the best results. For example, you will have to wear sunscreen and avoid any prolonged sun exposure. Furthermore, do not workout or break a sweat for a full day post-treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

When used as directed, Juvéderm® Ultra XC is safe and well-tolerated by most individuals. The procedure is not painful. However, some patients will experience mild side effects, including:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Firmness
  • Tenderness
  • Discoloration and bruising

How Long Do Results Last?

Like other Juvéderm® products, you will notice that your Juvéderm Ultra XC fillers have taken effect almost immediately. While you will notice that your skin is smoother and lips more plump, these are not your final results. It takes about 2 weeks for the fillers to settle in the skin. After that, you can expect your results to last between 6-12 months.

In order to maintain your desired results, we recommend scheduled maintenance injections. The specialists at DrSkin can provide more insight as to when you should have these done.

Who Should Get Juvéderm® Ultra XC?

Most adults are good candidates for Juvéderm® Ultra XC injections, so long as you are older than 21 years old and are in good health. Whether you want to add volume or decrease the appearance of facial parentheses (nasolabial folds), Juvéderm Ultra is a highly recommended option with long-lasting results.

However, there are some individuals who should not get Juvéderm Ultra XC injections, including:

  • Those who are allergic to Gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine
  • Anyone with a history of anaphylaxis
  • Individuals who have cold sores or viral sore breakouts at the time of treatment
