Juvederm Ultra XC
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.
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 restores a smoother appearance to the face. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 9 months to 1 year.
