JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Helps Smooth Away Wrinkles
For treatment of wrinkles in the nose and mouth area, Dr. Amy Vaughan and her experienced staff offer several treatment options in the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers, including JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC. Best used for mild wrinkles and folds, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) and is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.
What does it do?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection.
How is it used?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
What will it accomplish?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 9 months to 1 year.
