Juvederm Ultra/Plus XC
in Fargo, North Dakota
Aging skin can come with a lot of concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, or even volume loss. When our skin ages, our skin starts to lose its volume, creating depressions in the skin and leading to sagging. By using an injectable filler, you can restore volume, providing greater support for the skin and leading to fuller cheeks and lips.
What is Juvederm Ultra/Plus XC?
The aging process is lengthy and complex. There are many reasons as to why signs of aging appear worse on some faces than others. Skin elasticity, muscle contractions, and environmental factors can be a few. Dermal fillers are one of the best ways to reduce the appearance of signs of aging, and Juvéderm® Ultra/Plus XC is one effective option. This product is a highly-established dermal filler used to help with thinning lips, hand rejuvenation, and facial lines. This filler, which was approved by the FDA in 2010, is effective at adding more plumpness and volume to the face. The filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a protein that helps your skin stay moisturized and supple. Juvéderm Ultra/Plus XC also contains lidocaine to help ease the injection process.
Had a great experience here! Knowledgeable staff, great front desk, and even better patient care. All my questions were answered, and options were given. Very up front about costs as well! Highly recommend this place!
How Does Juvederm Ultra/Plus XC Work?
This treatment uses a unique, cross-linked form of hyaluronic acid for long wear. It’s injected into the tissues underneath the skin, which adds plumpness and volume under the skin. After treatment, lips look fuller and wrinkles are smoothed out, making the facial profile appear years younger. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in our skin, making it a safe option for rejuvenation because it’s naturally absorbed over time. The best part is there is no downtime associated with this procedure. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a bit more concentrated, helping to contour the face better than Ultra XC.
Juvederm Ultra/Plus XC Maintenance
The effects of Juvéderm Ultra/Plus XC are proven to last for up to one year. In order to have lasting effects, you should opt for retreatment after this timeframe. About 78% of people who were treated with Juvéderm Ultra XC experienced complete satisfaction with the look of their lips after one year of treatment. There are a few possible side effects of this procedure such as redness, swelling, firmness, lumps, tenderness, and some bruising. All of these side effects should be mild and subside within a day after treatment.
