WHAT IS JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC (familiarly known as Juvederm or Ultra Plus) is an injectable dermal filler that restores facial harmony and youthful glow in the lower part of the face. As a member of the distinguished JUVÉDERM family of fillers, Ultra Plus is backed by years of clinical trials and millions of clients that have been able to successfully smooth or plump moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in the lower part of their face. Best of all, they were able to regain their confidence.
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a a naturally occurring sugar found in the body, predominantly in the skin, between the joints, and in the eyes. The modified form of HA used in Juvederm made via Hylacross™ technology (which makes the material smooth versus granular) resembles a fluid and clear gel. HA works by absorbing water (which helps skin retain softness and suppleness), delivering nutrients, and acting as a volumizing agent (whether adding volume to skin or cushion around joints).
