Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the natural-looking, long-lasting results you want.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC with Lidocaine was developed with VYCROSS™ technology to deliver a natural look and feel, with results proven to last up to a year. Because it also includes a local anaesthetic, you should find it makes the treatment process much more comfortable.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found on your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC are two possible ways to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Both are non-surgical, but they work differently:
BOTOX® Cosmetic: Injected beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity which is one of the causes of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduce the activity of those muscles.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC: Injected into the skin to temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles such as those around the nose and mouth.
Your physician will advise you on your aftercare. You may be advised to stop wearing makeup for up to 12 hours. You may also be told to avoid the sun, as well as saunas and steam rooms, for 2 weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. It is also recommended that you avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC are different products approved to treat different areas of the face. Talk to your doctor to determine the treatment plan that's right for you.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC non-surgical filler is approved for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, also known as parentheses or smile lines).
Do not use this product if you have severe allergies or a history of severe allergic reactions. You should also not use this product if you have allergies to lidocaine or the proteins used to make hyaluronic acid. Your doctor will determine if JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC treatment is right for you.
The smooth consistency of the products in the Juvéderm Ultra® and VYCROSS™ ranges allow your medical physician to administer them easily and smoothly. They also contain 0.3% Lidocaine to reduce injection pain for a more comfortable experience.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is a non-surgical filler your doctor uses to instantly smooth out moderate to severe lines along the sides of your nose and mouth. Natural-looking results may last up to one year with optimal treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first injectable gel that is FDA-approved to instantly correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area for people over 21. It adds volume, creating contour and lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
