As a thicker formula, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC offers higher performance than other injectables. It is often used to fill deeper lines and folds in the middle and lower part of the face, such as those that travel along the nasolabial folds or from the outer corners of the lips to the chin. This gentle hyaluronic gel works to fill in crease lines in the cheeks, chin and mouth, and is thicker and fuller than Juvederm Voluma XC. It is also the first hyaluronic dermal filler approved by the FDA for use on people of color, and shows better standard results than collagen-based dermal fillers.
The JUVEDERM family of fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers that differ in concentration of (HA) and binding between molecules (HA). The most common areas for injection are the cheeks (Juvederm Voluma XC), nasolabial folds and puppet lines around the mouth (Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Juvederm VOLLURE XC) and lips (Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm VOLBELLA XC). If there are any issues with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, a licensed professional can easily neutralize it with a quick injection of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that will neutralize it in the affected area. Unlike other dermal fillers, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is specialized for use in especially deep wrinkles or creases that appear in people with fuller faces and more elastic skin.
A single injection can last between 6 and 12 months*, but several treatments have been shown to improve collagen production in the skin and reinforce natural facial structure*. Unlike some fillers, which can take a long time to heal or require a painful recovery, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC has lidocaine as its active ingredient. The newest filler, Juvederm Voluma XC, even has a lifting effect when injected into the middle of the face and also resists swelling often seen in other fillers. If you are over 21 and interested in correcting your smile from fine to deep or the frown lines and creases around the mouth, you may be a candidate for Juvederm Ultra XC or Ultra Plus XC.
These hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are injected under the skin's surface to smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
