Juvéderm®: Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC are types of injected dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment where material is injected into the skin to fill and smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Fillers can also be used for volume replacement, bringing back a more youthful appearance of the aging face and even hands. Juvéderm is made with a smooth gel hyaluronic acid, a component found in our own skin. Because of this, pre-treatment allergy testing is not necessary with hyaluronic fillers.
Juvéderm is the only dermal hyaluronic acid filler on the market FDA approved to last up to one year from the time of initial treatment. The “XC” indicates that the local anesthetic lidocaine has been added to the gel to numb the treatment area within seconds, greatly improving clients’ comfort during the injections. And the Juvéderm Ultra XC is indicated for filling moderate lines and wrinkles while the Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is utilized for volumizing facial areas and filling deeper folds.
Clients should be counseled by their physician regarding how much Juvéderm should be used to fully correct their treatment areas. Like with all dermal fillers, some clients may need more than one syringe of Juvéderm to achieve the absolute best and satisfactory result they are looking for.
