Juvederm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is injected into the skin to add volume where it is needed most. Since all Juvederm products are created using special Hylacross technology, the gel is smooth and flexible enough to deliver predictable and attractive results.
In particular, Juvederm Ultra can be used to tackle early signs of aging that don’t require dramatic correction. Ultra’s formula utilizes finer, smaller molecules that make the gel light, silky, and gentle. This means that Juvederm Ultra is an excellent solution to correct superficial to moderate wrinkles and add subtle fullness to thin lips.
Juvederm Ultra is also available as Juvederm Ultra XC. The “XC” simply means that a numbing agent called lidocaine has been added to make the injection more comfortable. Juvederm Ultra XC can maintain results for as long as a year before being absorbed into the body. In fact, 78 percent of people treated with Juvederm Ultra XC reported feeling satisfied with the look and feel of their lips a full year after treatment.
