Similar to other forms of Juvéderm®, including Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Ultra-Plus XC is an injectable gel formulation designed to help add volume and smooth out wrinkles by replenishing lost Hyaluronic Acid. As a naturally occurring skincare molecule, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a vital hydrating molecule that helps add much needed moisture content to the skin – giving patients the youthful plumpness and hydration the skin needs. Unfortunately, as we age, as with other similar skincare compounds, Hyaluronic Acid stores grow depleted with age and as one of the most highly effective HA-based dermal fillers, Juvéderm® Ultra-Plus XC helps to revitalize lost HA stores, while helping patients to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, while also functioning as an effective lip filler as well.
As we age, our skin will often lose vital skincare proteins such as collagen and elastin – leading to lost elasticity and moisture. Without these vital compounds, the skin is often left without its natural defenses, leaving patients far more susceptible to sun, wind, rain and other environmental factors that can cause signs of premature aging to appear far sooner than normal. However, in order to protect against these unwanted issues, an effective HA-based dermal filler such as Juvéderm® Ultra-Plus XC, has proved to be quite effective – eliminating moderate to severe, wrinkles, fine lines, and lost facial volume.
