JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC

Injectable Fillers

JUVÉDERM® XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler, specifically formulated to add volume to the skin around the mouth and nose that has been lost due to the natural aging process. This injectable gel restores a youthful contour to the face, plumping up the area and softening lines, facial wrinkles and folds.

The main component in JUVÉDERM XC is hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally within the human body, which hydrates and supports skin. Over time, the levels of hyaluronic acid produced by the body begin to decline, leading to changes in facial definition. JUVÉDERM XC naturally integrates into the skin, restoring levels of hyaluronic acid and stimulating the growth of firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Candidates for JUVÉDERM XC

Ideal candidates for JUVÉDERM XC are healthy adults over the age of 21 who have experienced noticeable signs of aging around the mouth or nose, including fine lines, wrinkles or facial folds. While more common among older adults, younger men and women may also experience these issues due to various factors such as genetics, weight loss and illness. Patients who are pregnant or who have severe allergies are not considered candidates for treatment with JUVÉDERM XC.

The JUVÉDERM XC Procedure

JUVÉDERM XC injections take about 15 minutes to complete and are administered in a medical office. JUVÉDERM XC is injected under the skin with a small needle, adding volume deep within the areas surrounding the nose or mouth. The gel formula contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, to prevent patients from experiencing pain during treatment.

Improvements in the skin will be visible immediately after the procedure. There is no downtime required following treatment with JUVÉDERM XC, and most patients can resume their normal daily activities after their treatment session. While the results of JUVÉDERM XC are not permanent, they are very long lasting, with some patients achieving results that last for up to one year.*

JUVÉDERM XC Side Effects

While JUVÉDERM XC is considered a safe procedure, there are possible side effects associated with the use of any dermal filler. The most common side effects of JUVÉDERM XC treatment may include swelling, infection, bruising, itchiness, skin discoloration and discomfort. When these complications do arise, they are generally moderate and subside within a few weeks.*
