What is Juvéderm® Ultra XC?

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen, resulting in lines and wrinkles and lost volume. This can result in lines around the nose and mouth or thinning lips. If you are bothered by either of these signs of aging and are looking for a non-surgical solution, Juvéderm® Ultra XC is a great solution. Juvéderm® Ultra XC is an injectable filler formulated to add fullness to thin lips, as well as smooth and correct moderate to severe smile lines around the nose and mouth. It is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which draws moisture to the skin, plumping and rejuvenating your complexion.

Juvéderm® Ultra XC is formulated to address:

  • Thin or thinning lips.
  • Lines around the nose and mouth (smile lines).

Juvéderm® Ultra XC Candidates

Adults 21 years and older who wish to plump their lips for a fuller look or smooth smile lines can often benefit from this filler. Ideal candidates will be overall healthy with realistic expectations for their outcomes. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have a history of severe scarring or allergies should not receive this treatment. The best way to determine if this filler is right for your aesthetic goals is to schedule a consultation at our Grand Rapids, MI office.

The Juvéderm® Ultra XC Treatment

Your Juvéderm® Ultra XC treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the number of syringes needed. To begin, your injector will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to make sure you are comfortable. Then, a small needle will be used to skillfully inject the filler into the designated areas. This may feel like a small pinch but is very tolerable.

What to Expect Following Juvéderm® Ultra XC

Following your Juvéderm® Ultra XC treatment, temporary side-effects may include swelling, tenderness, bruising, itching, or redness at the injection site. There is no downtime required after injection, so you can feel free to return to your regular daily activities. We do, however, recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and intense sun exposure for 24 hours to ensure proper healing. Results can last up to one year, with optimal treatment.

 I was very nervous to get lip fillers but Nicole Devos did an amazing job. She was very informative during the consultation and made my lips look exactly what I imagined and hoped for. I highly recommend her!
