How Juvéderm® XC Ultra & Ultra Plus Works
Juvéderm® XC Ultra and Ultra Plus is a hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. The hyaluronic acid gel is used to treat lines and folds on the lower face such as the Nasolabial folds and Marionettes. Juvéderm® XC Ultra and Ultra Plus are also fillers that can be used to add volume to the lips. Manufactured by Allergan and approved in 2006 by the US FDA this hyaluronic acid gel hydrates the skin by holding water and acts as a “cushioning agent” providing volume to the injected area. In 2010, the FDA approved Juvéderm® XC formulation with the local anesthetic lidocaine to provide patients with a more comfortable injection experience. Juvéderm® XC Ultra and Ultra Plus are still available without Lidocaine for those with a sensitivity to the medication. A consultation is necessary for our Registered Nurse injectors to determine which filler is best for you and the area to be corrected.
Juvéderm® XC Ultra vs Ultra Plus
Juvéderm® XC Ultra Plus consistency is a thicker version of Juvéderm Ultra. Juvéderm® XC Ultra Plus is used more often to treat and correct more severe wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. A proper evaluation is recommended to determine which filler is best for you.
Juvéderm® XC Ultra & Ultra Plus Treatment Areas
Juvéderm® XC Ultra and Ultra Plus are both designed to temporary correct by adding volume and plump the lips as well as smooth out other facial lines such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other depressed areas in the face. There are other off-label areas Juvéderm® XC Ultra and Ultra Plus can be used for; however, only a highly trained Registered Nurse injector or physician should administer the product. The number of syringes needed depends on the volume loss and result expected by the patient. Juvéderm® XC is also the first smooth consistency gel formulation and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA to last up to one year from initial treatment.
Recovery & Results
There is no actual downtime with Juvéderm® XC Ultra or Ultra Plus. However, it is recommended to sleep on your back for the first three nights post-injection as to not put any shifting pressure on the filler. Full results are seen in two weeks as swelling and bruising can occur and the product does inflate 20-30% over that two-week timeframe. Treatment results can last up to 6 months to 1 year. Although, each patient is different and results can vary on a case to case basis. It is recommended to be treated on a regular basis determined by your provider to retain the best results.
You’ll start to see the effects of the treatment immediately. Studies conducted by the manufacturer, Allergen, report that Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC results last 9 to 12 months and Juvéderm® Voluma XC can add volume for up to two years
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is a highly linked hyaluronic acid filler that is most frequently used to fill superficial lines and add volume to any areas on the face. It can last 8-12 months. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is a newer formula FDA approved for instantly adding volume to the cheeks. Juvéderm® Voluma XC results can last up to two years.
Side effects tend to be minor and are typical for any kind of injectable filler. They include swelling of the skin around the injection site, redness, bruising (which may be increased if you’re taking blood thinners), bumps, and skin irritation. These should pass within a week. If symptoms persist, call your doctor.

Experience the Science of Beauty.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
