JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can also be used to perform lip augmentation. And the best part—no downtime and results are instant!
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration. It is also infused with a small amount of local anesthetic to lessen discomfort during treatment.
Your physician will inject the gel under the skin where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to instantly restore your skin’s volume. This will temporarily add volume to the skin and give the appearance of a smoother surface.
Discomfort is minimal and brief, and it is unlikely you will develop significant side effects. Some patients develop slight temporary bruising at the injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup. You can ask your physician to numb the treatment area with a topical cream to further minimize discomfort.
Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. Results typically last for 9 months to 1 year.
You should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours after treatment. Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site. If there is swelling, you can use an ice pack.
Side effects usually occur around the injection site. Common side effects include:
