Are you a candidate for JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC®?

If you are looking for fuller, more natural-looking lips, then you should know that our Uxbridge Maplebrook Dental team is proud to offer the latest JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC® product to bring natural volume to even the thinnest of natural lips and surrounding facial fine lines.

Learn about its many benefits (and how to find out if you’re a candidate!) today.

What is JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC ®? What Are its Specific Benefits?

JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that has been proven to treat facial wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging, as well as increase lip fullness and define lip shape.

It is made up of a local anesthetic, lidocaine, hyaluronic acid, and water, with the end goal of plumping the skin from bolstering volume at the source.

With its quick administration, long-lasting results, and zero required recovery time, JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC® immediately cemented itself as our team’s dermal filler of choice.

Specifically, we utilize JUVÉDERM VOLBEL XC®, the latest in dermal filler technology, to help clients achieve a natural smoothing and plumping of their lips and surrounding lines.

Who is a Candidate? Are There Any Side Effects to the Treatment?

Ideal candidates include patients who have concerns about their lip thinness and/or mouth-centric facial lines and have no allergies to the ingredients listed above.

While side effects to the treatment are rare, potential side effects include:

  • Discomfort on or around the injection site within the first 24 hours post-treatment
  • Redness post-treatment
  • Swelling post-treatment
  • Firmness or lumps post-treatment
  • Bruising post-treatment
  • Tenderness post-treatment
  • Allergic reaction post-treatment
  • Infection post-treatment

If any of these side effects do occur, please contact us immediately for professional direction. In the worst case scenario, these should be mild and last less than one week.

Within the first 24 hours of receiving the treatment, please refrain from strenuous exercise, excess sun exposure, and drinking alcohol.

What Results Should Be Expected Post-Treatment?

Patients should see a noticeable difference to their lips and surrounding skin instantaneously. These initial results last the majority of patients anywhere from six months to one calendar year.

To maintain or improve upon your results, please book periodic follow-up treatments with your provider. The frequency of these follow-up treatments will be advised by your provider. 

Curious about what results we’ve achieved for our patients? Look no further than our before-and-after gallery.

If these results align with what you are seeking for your own goals, don’t wait: our Uxbridge dental team is here to help your dream lips become a reality.
