What is Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC?
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC consists of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance produced by our own skin, much like collagen or elastin, the natural materials that support skin tissues to provide a youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the skin, increasing hydration and resulting in increased volume and fullness. Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC is used to diminish the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Mittelman Plastic Surgery provides Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC to treat these specific folds and wrinkles in both men and women:
- Vertical lip lines, also known as smoker’s lines
- Marionette lines
- Lines and creases in the corners of the mouth
- Nasolabial folds
Benefits of Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds for up to one year. These dermal fillers may also improve a patient’s facial appearance by injecting it into acne scars or adding volume and plumpness to the facial lips or cheeks. Treatments are performed safely and comfortably in our office and no recovery period is required.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treats mild to moderate wrinkles on the face that commonly occur as a result of the aging process. This dermal filler is often requested by women in their 30s and in many cases, this is the first cosmetic procedure used by patients wanting to eliminate the early signs of aging.
Why Have a Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Treatment?
There are a number of reasons to choose a Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treatment at Mittelman Plastic Surgery. Your face is the first thing people notice about you and often determines how people react to you. Facial rejuvenation of the cheeks, lips, and nose, may be achieved safely and inexpensively with dermal filler injections versus plastic surgery.
The Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treatment requires no incisions, sutures or bandages, and most patients return to their daily activities immediately following treatment. Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC is approved by the FDA, making it safe to use on adults who are in general good health.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC dermal filler produces instantaneous results as the substance fills folds and wrinkles that form around the mouth, nose, chin or cheeks. The injections are administered using a fine needle or cannula, and most patients experience little to no discomfort.
The Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Procedure
The Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC procedure is safe and simple but requires a consultation with Dr. Mittelman, who will conduct a thorough evaluation and discussion of your concerns and goals after evaluating your medical history and ruling out any contraindications to injectable fillers. During this consultation, you may ask any questions you have about the treatment and probable results, as well as cost and payment options.
Dr. Mittelman has extensive experience with facial cosmetic treatments and can determine the precise locations to inject Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC for optimal results.
Your skin will be sanitized with an alcohol pad to eliminate pathogens before treatment, and in some cases, Dr. Mittelman may apply a gentle massage to smooth the skin tissue near the injection site and assist in dispersing the dermal filler. New Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC also contains a small amount of lidocaine, an anesthetic agent that numbs the skin and underlying tissue to prevent discomfort during the procedure.
You may continue your normal activities immediately following the procedure, and most patients experience minimal discomfort. We recommend you refrain from strenuous activity and avoid intense sunlight for the first 24 hours.
Are You a Candidate for Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC?
Extensive research has been conducted on Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC in patients between the ages of 35 and 65, and the treatment has been determined safe and suitable for all adult patients who are in general good health.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC may be used in patients who meet the following conditions:
- Normal to thick facial skin tissue
- Healthy skin without keloid or hypertrophic scars
- Normal skin with no pigmentation disorders
- Patients with no immunodeficiency disorders
We recommend you hold off on Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treatments if you are taking medications that thin the blood, such as aspirin. Following a dermal filler procedure, you must also avoid direct sunlight, extreme heat, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours. The skin near the Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC injection site may feel sensitive for several days following the procedure, and you are advised to avoid additional treatments such as chemical peels or laser procedures for several weeks.

What Can A Patient Expect After The Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Procedure?
Following a Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treatment, you may return to normal activities, but we recommend you avoid direct sunlight, hot temperatures, and strenuous exercise.

How Soon Can A Patient Return To Work After Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC?
