Additional Information about Juvederm Ultra XC

Juvederm Ultra’s results can last up to one year, with the average effectiveness lasting nine months. Juvederm’s popularity is, in part, due to its excellent flow and smooth texture, unlike the consistency of other fillers. The reason for the product’s smoothness is due to its Hylacross technology, a manufacturing process Allergan utilizes to create the line of Juvederm Ultra products.

Great for filling moderately sized wrinkles, Juvederm Ultra is also a superior filler for expression lines. This product is also best for contouring facial structure, correcting scars and enhancing lips to a moderate degree.

Juvederm XC performs all of the same effects as regular Juvederm Ultra XC   with one added ingredient: lidocaine. This is a local anesthetic that adds to a patient’s comfort when receiving the injections.

Finally, there is Juvederm Voluma XC, with lidocaine, to help add plumpness to the cheek areas of the face. It is injected into deep dermal layers of the cheek in three different areas and can last up to 24 months.

Juvederm Ultra products usually yield immediate visual results. The possible side effects associated with these injectables include redness and soreness at the injection site, swelling, bruising, stiffness, itchiness and infection.
