Juvéderm® Ultra XC
As you get older, the tissue of the lips thins, sometimes leaving unwanted lines and creases on or around the mouth. California Skin Institute can help with dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® Ultra XC, as an alternative to lip implants. In appointments that may take as little as 15 to 30 minutes, Juvéderm® Ultra XC treatments bring fullness back to the lips, allowing the lips and mouth to appear smoother, softer and more effervescent.
Created primarily to reduce the appearance of lip lines and thinning lips, Juvéderm® Ultra XC is also effective in filling deep lines and creases at the mid-face or lower face. These include nasolabial folds (smile lines), which run from the outer edges of the nose to the mouth, and marionette lines, which run from the corners of the lips to the chin. Juvéderm® Ultra XC treatments offer temporary relief from skin sagging associated with these types of lines and folds.
How Juvéderm® Ultra XC works
Juvéderm® Ultra XC injections contain a substance made of water, hyaluronic acid (HA) and the local anesthetic lidocaine. Combined, water and HA create a gel-like fluid that creates volume. The solution is formulated to plump the skin by increasing volume from beneath the skin. When plumped by the HA solution, areas of the face and chin show noticeably less sagging.
Results may vary. Areas where treatment is applied may need to be addressed in separate appointments.
