When you look in the mirror, do you notice that lines and wrinkles that were once subtle have now become more noticeable? Or perhaps you have noticed that you have lost youthful facial volume that makes you look older than you feel? If so, you may be able to benefit from Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC. This dermal filler is created with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance created by your body. It works by adding youthful plumpness under the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles and add lost volume for a more youthful appearance.
What is Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC?
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is a dermal filler used to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, nasolabial folds, areas of volume loss, and facial shaping. It is similar to Juvéderm® Ultra XC, though it has a thicker consistency and is injected deeper into the skin to correct more severe signs of aging. If you are bothered by moderate to severe lines, this may be the treatment for you!
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC?
Individuals 21 years and older who would like to combat signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles, areas of volume loss, and nasolabial folds can often benefit from this filler. However, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of severe allergies or keloid scarring, or have been diagnosed with a blood clotting disorder, you should not receive this treatment. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate is to schedule a consultation appointment at Elite Aesthetics & Wellness today.
What to Expect During your Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC Treatment
Your filler appointment will begin with a discussion regarding which areas you would like treated. We will then cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream to make sure you are comfortable during the treatment process. Next, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is artfully injected into the designated areas using a very fine needle. Treatment length may vary depending on the number of injections needed and the size of the treatment areas.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC Results
There is no downtime needed after your Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC treatment, which means you can return to school, work, or your normal activities right away. However, we do recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure for the first 24 hours after treatment for the best results. Some mild redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site is normal and will dissipate over time. While some improvement may be seen immediately, optimal results will be noticeable after about two weeks and can last up to one year.
