Hey Sweet Cheeks: Choosing Juvederm® Ultra XC
Choosing a dermal filler you’re comfortable with that will give you the exact results you want is a daunting task. There are a wide variety of brands, all made of different materials used in different areas of the face to give different results. We’re here to make the navigation a little less overwhelming.
What to know about Juvederm® Ultra XC
This particular type of Juvederm® is used specifically to add youthful contours back into the cheeks. It can also smooth out moderate to deep smiles lines, or “parentheses” around the nose and mouth, and adds volume the lines that run from the corners of the mouth toward the chin, also known as marionette lines.
No Need for Botulinum
Juvederm® Ultra XC is made specifically to add volume back into the face in areas that may have fallen flat due to age. Because of this, there’s no need to paralyze any muscles using botulinum. Juvederm® Ultra XC’s main ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that gives the skin its elasticity.
So, How Does It Work?
As we age, we naturally start to lose HA in the skin. This contributes to the formation of moderate to severe lines, wrinkles and a reduction of fullness in the face over time. The HA in Juvederm® Ultra XC helps to replenish the HA in the skin to restore volume, moisture and nutrients to the skin. It also promotes the body’s natural production of collagen.
You’ll be able to see the results of Juvederm® Ultra XC immediately after your appointment. The appearance of lines in your face will be drastically reduced and volume will be added in places that fell flat before. Results will improve over the next two weeks as swelling reduces and the HA encourages the natural production of collagen in the body.
In the Long Term
Your results from Juvederm® Ultra XC are not only immediate, they last long as well! Results last anywhere from six to 12 months. Results have been shown to last up to 18 months in some patients!
How Much Will it Cost?
Because treatment is highly customized for you, your body, and your desired results, the final cost of the treatment will widely vary. You’ll be able to talk this through further at your consultation with Dr. Pollack.
