How Does JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC Work?
Allergan, the makers of the JUVÉDERM® line of dermal fillers, has perfected the engineering behind a variety of dermal fillers, making an array of gels with unique factors, such as spreadability, durability, thickness, and consistency that help practitioners create art with dermal filler injections. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is precisely designed to fill in lines around the mouth—the fine ones around the lips, or the nasolabial folds from the nose to the mouth’s corners—and plump thin lips into the perfect pout.
JUVÉDERM® fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules. HA is a naturally-occurring sugar in the human body responsible for retaining water, providing nourishment, and hydrating our skin cells, keeping our complexion supple and younger for longer. By creating a gel out of carefully selected HA molecules and cross-linking them to control the thickness and consistency, Allergan has created a dermal filler that improves your smile by adding volume to deep lines so they’re less noticeable, and plumping your lips to pillowy perfection.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most everyone is a good candidate to receive JUVÉDERM injections, providing you don’t have a history of anaphylaxis or severe allergies. If you’re tired of spending money on lip enhancement products that use painful, skin irritating ingredients to achieve lip plumpness, or over-the-counter serums that promise wrinkle reduction but don’t deliver, you may be the perfect candidate for JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC treatments.
