Used to augment lips, Juvederm Ultra XC is ideal for anyone wishing for younger-looking, plumper and more defined lips. It’s indicated for anyone who simply feels their lips are too thin, or for those who have lost fullness or definition as they age. It is also a good filler to consider to create symmetry to the mouth.
It softens vertical upper and lower lip lines, which also improves the appearance of the vermillion border, the demarcation between the lips and the skin of the face.
It’s also used to fill moderate or severe lines around the lips, such as lines from lip outer corners to the chin (marionette lines), smile lines, or nasolabial folds.
Juvederm Ultra is FDA-approved for all of these usages. It should be expected to last six to twelve months, the longest lasting of HA fillers.
As with all Juvederm products, its hyaluronic acid based, and the “XC” means it includes lidocaine to create a numbing effect that minimizes inject pain.
Treatments are short. Results are immediate and will continue to improve over a few weeks. You may continue regular activities at once, and there’s no medical downtime.
