Juvederm in Washington, DC
What is Juvederm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC?
Juvederm Ultra & Ultra Plus XC are Hyaluronic Acid wrinkle fillers used for the correction of mild to moderate facial lines and mild facial volume loss in addition to lip augmentation. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of normal human skin.
What are the differences between Juvederm XC Ultra and Ultra Plus?
Juvederm Ultra is a lower molecular weight filler which is used primarily for small to moderate wrinkle reduction of the face as well as lip augmentation. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a slightly heavier filler more effective in treating deeper facial lines and mild facial volume loss.
How long does Juvederm Last?
Improvement with Hyaluronic Acid fillers such as Juvederm is temporary, with benefits typically lasting from 6 to 12 months depending on individual physiology. Studies have shown that with repeated use of these products new collagen formation does occur over time, resulting in gradual long-term reduction of lines, wrinkles, and scars over time with regular treatments.
What can I expect during treatment?
Prior to treatment your provider will discuss your individual goals and desires, and recommend the type and amount of filler to achieve those goals. Juvederm XC is pre-mixed with Lidocaine, which significantly reduces or eliminates most treatment discomfort. To reduce the pain associated with needle penetration we offer topical numbing cream prior to treatment, however the needle sizes used for filler are very small and most patients tolerate the procedure well without any topical anesthesia. During the actual treatment your provider will gradually inject the filler into the treatment area, occasionally stopping to allow the patient to examine the results in a mirror. Prior to completion of a treatment the patient will have an opportunity to examine their results fully in a mirror and suggest additional treatment or any concerns.
