What is Juvederm Ultra XC filler used for? | Beverly Hills Wrinkles, loose skin, and folds are not just caused by excess skin that needs tightening. 

It can also result from the loss of volume in the face, which is the reduction of youthful fat over time, leading to depleted cheeks, marionette lines, a sagging jowl line, and nasolabial folds.

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC 

FDA-approved Juvederm Ultra Plus XC dermal filler is used to smooth out facial lines and restore youthful volume that can diminish due to aging. The makers of Botox offer Juvederm Ultra Plus XC as just one of many Juvederm fillers that can be used to rejuvenate and refresh the facial appearance. 

The two primary ingredients found in Juvederm Ultra Plus XC are hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. 

It is a kind of sugar that hydrates the skin due to its ability to hold water. It creates a type of natural cushion that adds volume wherever it is administered. 

The second component, lidocaine, is a mild local anesthetic. It helps mitigate any discomfort when the gel is injected into the skin. 

 

How Juvederm Ultra Plus XC Can Reverse the Signs of Facial Aging

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC med spa filler gel has a thicker consistency to restore moderate-to-severe loss of volume in the face. This filler is often used in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines but is also used in the mid-face region.

Nasolabial folds refer to the lines that develop between the nose and mouth corners. These folds are commonly called laugh lines. They tend to become more prominent and deeper as we age. 

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC minimizes these folds as well as soften the appearance of marionette lines or the lines that extend vertically down from the mouth corners to the chin. The loss of volume in the cheek or mid-face area can lead to a hollowed out appearance.  

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can effectively plump up the cheeks and delicately lift loose skin hanging below the jawline. 

 

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC?

People who are unhappy with facial aging and seek to restore youthful volume for moderate-to-severe creases and wrinkles are good candidates for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. 

Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have never experienced an allergic response to dermal fillers or any components in Ultra Plus XC.

 

What Should I Expect During My Treatment?

After the patient is established as a candidate for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treatment, we can then schedule their first treatment session. This includes guidelines to be followed before the treatment, such as avoiding blood thinners such as aspirin and alcohol. 

When the patient comes in for their treatment, the Aesthetic Injection Specialist preps the site using an alcohol wipe. They may use a topical anesthetic at this time, but this is not always required as the filler contains lidocaine. 

The provider will then place a series of strategic injections using a fine gauge needle while molding the filler with their fingers for best outcomes. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Juvederm filler injections.

What Are The Different Types of Lip Injections?

Lip treatments have seen a significant rise in popularity over the past few years. This trend, arguably reignited by Kylie Jenner, now seems like a more feasible and reasonable option for anyone seeking a more voluptuous pout. 

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides lip filler injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

Types of Lip Filler Injections

There is more to lip enhancement med spa treatment than appears on the surface. There are three primary types of lip injections, and each as a distinct “look” it can create. 

Top celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie elaborates that the common fillers used for lip enhancement are Juvéderm Ultra XC, Restylane, and Juvéderm Volbella XC. He further states that the other fillers that are used are off-label, but these are most commonly used in his practice.

According to Dr. Motykie, it may seem like a lip injection is merely a lip injection, but there are various ways to create the patient’s desired outcomes. 

Each filler has different abilities to augment, add lift, or alter the lip shape. The lip feel is of utmost importance. He explains that the thinner the filler, the more it conforms to the surrounding tissue. 

The plastic surgeon will certainly explain the best option for the individual needs of the patient. But if the patient has some knowledge of what each filler does, it can help them make a well-informed final decision. The three main types of lip injections are as follows:

 

Restylane

Dr. Motykie elaborates that Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based med spa filler with a high affinity for water. This essentially means that it can effectively retain moisture for plumper lips. 

Dr. Motykie explains that Restylane has a high G prime elasticity meaning that it has an excellent ability to offer definition and lift to the lips. 

The filler gel also has a high viscosity, which helps it maintain its shape. The lips appear natural looking and slightly more firm when touched than with fillers from the Juvéderm family.

The kind Dr. Motykie highlights that it has around one percent cross-linking of hyaluronic acid chains, which pertain to its longevity. The results of Restylane can last for between six to nine months.

 

Juvéderm Ultra XC

Juvéderm Ultra XC has a higher hyaluronic acid than Restylane and Volbella. Dr. Motykie explains that the G prime is lower than both Restylane and Volbella, which offers the lips a softer feel and a more horizontal spread of direction. 

This occurs due to a higher percentage of cross-linking with Hylacross technology. The outcomes can be expected to last between nine months to one year. 

 

Juvéderm Volbella

The dependable Dr. Motykie explains that Juvéderm Volbella is the newest of lip fillers. It has the lowest hyaluronic acid concentration as well as the lowest affinity to water, which allows it to offer subtle enhancement that appears soft and natural. But even though the outcomes are less dramatic, they do not diminish faster than the other fillers.  

Juvéderm Volbella is based on the new Vycross technology, which enhances its longevity by mixing different lengths of hyaluronic acids chains, enhancing its stability. The outcomes can last for up to one year.

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for lip filler injections.
