Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Juvèderm Ultra or Ultra Plus: Juvèderm is an injectable facial filler frequently used to remove smile lines, which are the creases of skin that run from the corners of an individual’s nose to the corners of their mouth. It can also be used to plump lips and fill hollow areas and scars on a person’s face.
This type of injectable facial filler is a gel filler that uses hyaluronic acid gel to smooth wrinkles and folds, primarily around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the human body; by using this as an ingredient in this type of Juvèderm filler, it can hydrate the skin and act as a cushioning agent.
The difference between ultra and ultra plus is the amount of hyaluronic acid contained in the same size syringe as well as the longevity of the filler.
