WHAT IS JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS XC?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid gel injected into areas of facial tissue to add volume and restore a smoother appearance to the face.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Juvederm Ultra Plus XC gel is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds occur (most often around the nose and mouth). The injected gel adds immediate volume and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUVEDERM ULTRA XC AND JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS XC?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a more dense form of this cosmetic injection. It is also the most cross-linked version. Hence, it has a greater filling-up-volume effect where cheeks, lips, naso-genian folds, general folds, and very deep nasolabial folds are concerned.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW BEFORE MY TREATMENT?
You should stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen and fish oil supplements for 2 weeks prior to injection, to decrease your risk of bruising at injection site.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
- Minimal recovery or downtime
- Immediate improvement in the treatment areas
- One treatment could smooth your wrinkles for up to 1 year!
Results can vary and you may need more than one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing results.
