What is Juvéderm Ultra XC?
Juvéderm Ultra XC is is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to smooth out lines in your face and restore the youthful volume that can diminish over time.* It can be used to treat nasolabial folds, frown lines, marionette lines and other moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds in the mid-face.* The nasolabial folds are the visible lines between the corners of the mouth and the nose. These folds are also known as laugh lines and they begin to look deeper and more pronounced as we age. Not only can Ultra XC help to minimize the appearance of these folds, but it can also restore volume to the cheek area.* If you are experiencing issues with hollow cheeks, this treatment may be perfect for you.*
How does it work?
Two of the main ingredients in Juvéderm Ultra XC are lidocaine and hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a type of sugar that is naturally found in the body. Since it holds water, it creates a kind of natural cushion that increases volume wherever it is injected.* Lidocaine is a mild, local anesthetic that will help to reduce any discomfort when Ultra XC is injected. At Nouveau Medspas in Gig Harbor, Washington, Dr. Rubin will inject Ultra XC into the targeted areas to restore volume and smoothness to your face.* During your appointment, Dr. Rubin will prep the area by wiping it down with an alcohol wipe. A topical anesthetic may also be used before the injection, but because Ultra XC contains lidocaine, this may not be necessary. Dr. Rubin will make a series of strategic injections with a small, fine needle and will use her fingers to mold the filler. She will ensure that you are comfortable and that you get the best results.*
What can I expect from the results?
You may see immediate results following the treatment.* Minimal redness and swelling might be seen after the procedure, and after it goes away (usually after a couple of days) you will begin to see the results in full.* Other than the redness and swelling, patients do not usually experience heavy symptoms. You may want to avoid extensive exercise, alcohol and high temperatures for the first 24 hours but you will be able to your normal routine otherwise.
Ultra XC works to reduce wrinkles, folds and lines right away.* Elasticity and increased volume will also be noticeable for those with a sunken or hollow face.* Results usually last for a year, after which point, you’ll be able to opt for additional injections.* Maintenance and touch up appointments will help you maintain a more youthful look.* Subsequent treatments typically require less dermal filler each time, so future visits to Nouveau Medspas will be even simpler and quicker than past appointments.*
