JUVÉDERM ULTRA PLUS®
Aging is a beautiful thing, lovelies, but the signs of it aren’t always welcome. As the years pass, skin may begin to sag while wrinkles and folds develop. One cause is facial volume loss. As we age, the plump, fullness of the face diminishes, causing sag and wrinkle formation. However, with injectable fillers like Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, we can restore facial fullness and youthfulness, helping you look and feel lovelier than ever.

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC Overview & Uses
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a colorless gel comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar produced in our bodies, especially the skin where it helps retain moisture and lubrication. In addition, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to make receiving the injection more comfortable. It’s a denser version of Juvederm Ultra XC, allowing us to resolve facial wrinkles, folds, and lines that are deeper and more pronounced. Allergan formulated this cosmetic product expressly for deep nasolabial folds, those which form from your nose to the edges of your mouth, and marionette lines, which develop from the edges of your mouth to your jawline. However, it has other applications, including the cheeks and, in some cases, the lips.
What to Expect From Your Filler Treatment at Skin by Lovely
Your dermal filler treatment will be unique to you. Our Aesthetic Injection Specialists develop your treatment plan based on the results you want and the current state of your skin, as determined during a consultation.
Your Dermal Filler Consultation
Plan to begin your cosmetic treatment journey by consulting with one of our Aesthetic Injection Specialists. During the consultation, we will discuss your medical history, examine your skin and facial structures to ensure Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is right for you, and create a treatment plan to achieve your goals. Your treatment plan may include other injectables as well, such as Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft, ensuring a comprehensive approach to your care. We want you to be well-informed and confident of your choice in us.
Your Dermal Filler Treatment
When you arrive for your first dermal filler treatment, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will disinfect the treatment areas. Ice will be applied beforehand, but since Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, pain should be minimal. Your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will strategically inject Juvederm Ultra Plus XC using a fine gauge needle to plump and smooth your skin and achieve a younger, fresher look.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
Another great thing about Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treatments: little to no downtime. Many continue their day after their appointment. We do recommend avoiding direct sun and strenuous exercise as these can diminish results. While you may experience some swelling and redness after your appointment, these are generally temporary and disappear in a few days. Results vary but are usually noticeable in the first week, with full results seen within three. It’s important to keep in mind Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, as with all fillers, is temporary and additional visits will be necessary to maintain the look you want.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC FAQs
We understand most people have questions before their aesthetic treatment. Your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will be able to answer your’s during a consultation, but here are some answers to a common few.
Is this filler safe and FDA-approved?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is FDA-approved and considered safe for most adults who wish to look younger or enhance their appearance.
Who is a good candidate for the treatment? Who should not receive this procedure?
If you’re over 21 and in good health, then you are likely a good candidate for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC or similar injectable fillers. However, certain health conditions and medications can interact with dermal filler treatments, so it’s important to discuss these with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist prior to your procedure. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not have fillers.
