JUVEDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC
JUVEDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC is a skin smoothing and lip plumping implant manufactured by Allergan. It is formulated with 24mg/ml of completely synthetic hyaluronic acid molecules that are densely cross-linked with a chemical reticulating agent, butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE). This filler also contains 0.3% lidocaine, a type of quick-relief local anesthetic to alleviate uncomfortable pain during dermal injection session. The resulting gel is highly viscoelastic and ideal for correcting moderate to severe facial creases. In addition to erasing lines, it is also perfect for sculpting thin and undefined lips subtly. This certified medical device must be kept in a storage room with a well-regulated temperature between 2°C to 25°C.
Due to the nature of the hyaluronic acid molecules, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is suitable for patients with known hypersensitivity to animal proteins and avian-based implants. Furthermore, it is sought-after by many patients due to its durable performance. Once implanted, the hyaluronic acid filler will instantly correct any facial wrinkles, and these aesthetic outcomes are maintained for a prolonged time due to the dense cross-linked texture of the filler.
- Active component:
- 24mg/ml of cross-linked hyaluronic acid
- 3mg/ml of lidocaine
- Inactive components:
- <2ppm of cross-linking chemical, butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE)
- 1ml of phosphate buffer pH 7.2 q.s.
The resulting gel is completely biodegradable and clear without any trace of color. Before being packaged in a graduated 1ml syringe, the filler material is thoroughly sterilized using moist heat. Each box of this medical device is supplied with 2 prefilled syringes, 4 single-use 27G½” needles, and a product pamphlet. It is very important to confirm that your patients are not allergic to any of the ingredients before you start the procedure. Failure to do might result in hypersensitive reactions or other adverse reactions.
Wrinkles and lines are part and parcel of aging. These dermal defects occur as less and less dermal cells (e.g. collage, elastin, hyaluronic acid, etc.) are available for the skin maintenance process caused by the inevitable internal aging process. Unfortunately, the damage does not stop there. More often than not, external aging influences like pollution, smoking, and chronic sunlight exposure introduce the body to oxidizing free radicals that can cause more damage. As a result, aging signs like fine lines and pronounced creases are very evident on the skin, especially in the facial region. JUVEDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid integrated with lidocaine. The non-animal hyaluronic acid particles are processed using patented Hyalacross™ Technology which results in a filler gel that has a smoother consistency. Once implanted, wrinkles are filled and lifted or lips are beautifully shaped.
How do I use this product?
JUVEDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC is meant to be injected into the medium- to deep-set facial wrinkles via mid and/or deep-dermis injections. If it is used to enhance the shape and size of the lips, administer this filler into the lip mucosal membrane. To ensure the success of this aesthetic procedure, only licensed and trained physicians should perform the dermal filler injections on thoroughly vetted patients. It is also extremely important that you adhere to the stringent aseptic medical standards (e.g. sanitizing the treatment areas and medical supplies, discarding contaminated wastes in the designated disposable bins, etc.) to reduce the risk of infections.
When should I use this product?
You are encouraged to use this soft tissue implant to correct moderate to severe facial creases, nasogenian furrows, and marionette lines. Furthermore, a patient’s asymmetrical and undefined lips can also be easily sculpted using this multifunctional dermal plumping implant.
What areas can I treat with this product?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is ideal for filling and lifting creases around the cheeks and perioral areas. It is also gentle yet durable enough to be injected into the lips.
How long does the product last?
The residence time of this aesthetic implant is about a year. This duration of action varies according to the patient’s skin condition, age, and lifestyle choices. Since the filler material is completely tissue friendly, it will be broken down progressively into the nearby tissues without a trace. Patients can then receive more filler injections once the initial outcomes wear off.
How long does the treatment take?
Usually, the injection process is completed within 30 minutes with little to no downtime.
