What Is It?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra/Ultra Plus XC is a smooth gel filler that instantly smooths away wrinkles around your mouth and nose, from smile lines to vertical lip lines. It can help smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore your natural contours.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is a thicker, more viscous substance than JUVÉDERM Ultra. Therefore, Ultra Plus can provide more dramatic results in areas with deeper lines and hollows in the skin. JUVÉDERM Ultra is more appropriate for superficial locations and finer lines and wrinkles.
How Does It Work?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra/Ultra Plus XC is a hyaluronic acid filler, derived from a natural substance found in the human body. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin and joints. Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic, biodegradable versions of those naturally-occurring sugars and are considered to be extremely safe. JUVÉDERM® Ultra/Ultra Plus XC is formulated with 0.3% powdered lidocaine to help provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment.
