Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler that’s designed to add natural-looking fullness to the lips.  As we get older, collagen levels begin to break down and become depleted, which can cause thinning lips.  This thinning effect can create wrinkles and fine lines; these creases are especially prominent in smokers (known as smoker’s lines).  Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a great solution for patients who want to increase lip fullness, or who have noticed lips thinning over time and want to address it.

How It Works

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains a special hyaluronic acid gel that’s thinner than in other dermal fillers. These hyaluronic acid molecules add plumpness to the lips without creating a stiff or unnatural appearance.  “XC” means that this lip augmentation injection contains lidocaine, which helps mitigate any discomfort associated with the treatment.  Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is injected in key areas of the lips to help create augmentation that’s both subtle, natural, and stunning.

Area It Treats

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is approved by the FDA for lip augmentation.

Benefits

Most patients will see results from their Juvederm Ultra Plus XC almost immediately; however, final results will settle into place after a couple of weeks.  Patients should expect minor swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection site.  Results can last up to 12 months or more.
