Juvederm is a trusted brand of dermal fillers that has different formulations to treat all of the signs of aging that appear on the face. At Stillwaters MedSpa in Pensacola, FL, we are proud to offer JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, a dermal filler specifically designed to augment and highlight the lips and restore volume to the cheeks as a way to erase the lines that form around the mouth and nose.
What Is JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a specific injectable formulation that comes from the Juvederm collection of fillers. It is an injectable in gel form made of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body to hydrate and plump the skin. This filler will add fullness to the lips and restore volume to the cheeks as a way to combat the signs of aging, create subtle, positive changes, and take years off of the face.
What Does It Treat?
If you want fuller lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a filler that will help you reach your aesthetic goals. It will plump your lips whether they have thinned as a result of the aging process, or if you naturally have thin lips and want to transform the lips you were born with to the lips you have always wanted.
This dermal filler adds fullness to the lips, but it can also treat the lines that form around the mouth known as nasolabial folds, which can make you appear older than you are. Whether your facial lines have just started to become noticeable as smile lines, or they have advanced to the point that they are folds around the mouth, this dermal filler can help resolve this aging issue by smoothing the area and creating a youthful-looking appearance.
How Quickly Do Results Appear?
The benefit of Juvederm fillers is that they are fast-acting. Once injected with this specific formulation, you will experience immediate results. Your results will continue to improve in the weeks following your treatment as the filler settles into your skin.
How Long Do Results Last?
With optimal treatment, you will experience results for up to one year. The benefit of JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is that it provides long-lasting results. The wrinkle creams that took 12 weeks or longer to make a difference in your skin will pale in comparison to the results that Juvederm fillers provide. You won’t have to come in for touch-up treatments but instead can schedule a follow-up treatment as soon as you begin to notice that your results are fading.
Who Is a Candidate?
Adults 21 and older who want to add fullness to their lips or treat the lines that have developed around their mouth, also known as nasolabial folds, are the best candidates for JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC. A consultation with an injector is the best way to determine which specific Juvederm formulation is right for you. During this consultation, your injector will develop a treatment plan that is best for your needs and will help you best reach your aesthetic goals.
