Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
Wrinkles and folds aren’t just caused by loose skin that requires tightening. They are also the result of facial volume loss, which is the reduction of youthful fat that leads to hollowed cheeks, marionette lines, nasolabial folds and a sagging jowl line. If these signs of aging are a concern for you, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is a long-lasting, non-surgical solution to consider.
The human body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, a substance that sustains and supports skin elasticity and hydration. However, the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes with age. Juvéderm is a great way to help supplement the loss of hyaluronic acid for supple and wrinkle-free skin.
I see Dr. Sinha for my Botox and Juvederm treatments. He is fantastic! His office is trendy and the staff is really nice..
The experience was actually quite comfortable, and I can happily say that with the numbing cream that was put on my lips I didn’t even feel the injections! I have already gotten several compliments on how nice my lips look, and my Botox also looks great. I will definitely be coming back in for more treatments with Dr. Sinha. Thanks for everything!
What makes Juvéderm so effective?
Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that smoothes out lines and wrinkles, while restoring skin’s youthful volume. Its two main ingredients are hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, a mild local anesthetic that helps improve patient comfort when the gel is injected into the skin.
Juvéderm is manufactured using HYLACROSS™, which creates a smooth gel with a similar consistency to facial tissue. The gel does not clump together easily, which allows for an even and natural-looking application. Juvéderm provides you with smoother skin and plumper lips for up to a year, with a single injection.
Who is a good candidate for Juvéderm injections?
If you’re unhappy with your facial aging and want to restore youthful volume, you’re likely a good candidate for Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC. Juvéderm treatments help restore moderate to severe loss of facial volume. The most notable areas of the face where this injectable filler can create a marked improvement are in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Nasolabial folds, also commonly called laugh lines, are the lines that form between the nose and the corners of the mouth. With age, these lines can begin to look deeper and more pronounced. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC can help minimize these folds.
Similarly, the filler can combat marionette lines, or the lines that head vertically down from the corners of your mouth to your chin.
Juvéderm can also address volume loss that causes a hollowed-out appearance in the mid-face and cheek areas. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC can plump up the cheeks and gently lift any loose skin hanging below the jawline.
Due to its soft, gel consistency, Juvéderm is also an excellent dermal filler for lip augmentation.
At the Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery, our Juvéderm family of products includes:
- Volbella: a dermal filler used to define lips and correct fine wrinkles around the lips
- Vollure: softens moderate to severe “parentheses lines” and wrinkles around your nose and mouth by adding volume
- Voluma: used to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek and mid-face areas
- Juvéderm: an injectable gel that instantly smoothes moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth
What should I expect during and after treatment?
Dr. Sinha performs Juvéderm injections in his office, and they only take a few minutes. Using a sterile syringe, he will ease the Juvéderm gel under the skin to instantly restore volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds.
Recovery from a Juvéderm injection is usually immediate. Side effects such as redness or pain at the injection site are rare, and usually subside within three days.
You’ll probably be able to notice some results from the treatment – such as increased skin volume and elasticity – immediately. Any redness and swelling is likely to be minimal, but will completely dissipate after about two weeks. The results will improve from the time of the treatment until about three weeks later, and you can expect them to last about a year.
Juvéderm is the key to achieving a more naturally youthful look with a minimally invasive, zero-downtime facelift alternative.
