Juvederm Ultra XC, also known as Juvederm Ultra 2, provides enhancement to thin lips and moderate depressions in the skin. This sterile, nontoxic, and biodegradable gel adds volume and suppleness to the mid-dermis of the skin and the lips. It is a noninvasive option for adult patients to correct wrinkles and folds, as well as to add shape and volume to the lips.
The main ingredient in this filler is the cross-linked hyaluronic acid. This molecule has the capability to attract moisture up to 1,000 times its own weight, providing both hydration and volume to the dermis. Although it is naturally abundant in the body, it gradually loses its concentration because of aging and exposure to environmental stressors such as UV rays, pollutants, smoke, and nutritional habits. The integrity of the skin follows suit. As it loses its volume, it becomes dehydrated with an uneven texture.
To retrieve the youthful plumpness, replenish hyaluronic acid by inject Juvederm Ultra XC into the submucosa of the lips and mid-dermis of the skin. This increases the water concentration within the area, lifting the lips and other areas while smoothing out the folds and wrinkles. The synthetic yet biocompatible hyaluronic acid in the solution is sourced from Streptococcus bacteria, which undergoes purification and reticulation. As it conforms to the surrounding soft tissue, its addition will appear natural and boost your patient’s confidence.
Juvederm Ultra XC can achieve the desired result and add more volume to the lips with a quick 30-minute procedure. Patients will experience minimal downtime and can return to their daily life with a brand-new radiance that can last for 9 months or more.
Side effects may occur such as swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and itchiness at the area treated, but should resolve in 7 days. For lip injections, these effects can last up to 14 days. Rare but possible effects also include discoloration at the injection site, granulation, hypersensitivity towards hyaluronic acid, necrosis, and infection at the injection site.
To reduce the chances of side effects, advise your patient to place an ice pack on the treated area following the procedure. However, patients should avoid wearing any makeup on the face or the area in the first 12 hours after treatment. They should also protect their skin from any prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures.
The formulation of the injectable gel includes cross-linking hyaluronic acid with a reticulating agent. This preserves the gel from enzymatic deterioration. The gel sustains itself in the body for 9 months or more before gradually being resorbed into the surrounding tissues.
With Juvederm Ultra XC, patients can have a safe, noninvasive treatment that helps to augment their lips and eliminate any moderate to deep wrinkles on the skin.
