What is Juvederm Ultra XC filler used for?

What is Juvederm Ultra XC filler used for?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. 

For people experiencing these issues, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and similar med spa fillers may offer an ideal non-surgical solution. 

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


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.
