JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
Formulated with .03% lidocaine, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is formulated for a comfortable patient experience. Able to treat severe wrinkles and deep folds, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is often used around the mouth and nose. Patients see an immediate supple-like plumpness and seamless appearance where wrinkles once were. Just like all JUVÉDERM® brand cosmetics, the formula includes a proprietary blend of synthetic hyaluronic acid.
What is the Recovery Time after Juvederm Ultra Plus Treatment?
Most patients do not require any downtime after JUVÉDERM® treatments. With excellent anti-aging results often lasting 12 months, JUVÉDERM® treatments are very popular corrective solutions. Because they can achieve fantastic, wrinkle-smoothing results with just one treatment, patients must often be reminded that JUVÉDERM® is indeed temporary. Most patients site bruising as the most common side effect to recovery and can typically return to work and physical activities within a couple of days.
What Preparation Should I Do Before My Treatment?
Because of the increased risk of bruising, patients should stop taking all medications two weeks ahead of treatment. This pre-treatment preparation includes supplements like Omega-3 fatty acids and over-the-counter blood thinners like Advil.
How does JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC differ from JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC?
Formulated for the highest level of effectiveness, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is best used in deep tissue correction. As with all JUVÉDERM® branded products, a proprietary blend of synthetic hyaluronic acid functions to heighten the skin’s natural volume and smooth away the signs of aging. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is a denser formula used in the cheeks, neck folds and injected into the lips.
