JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is a hyaluronic dermal filler that improves the appearance of severe wrinkles and areas that have lost volume and elasticity. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC replenishes natural hyaluronic acid that is essential to youthful-looking skin, in order to smooth creases and provide natural-looking volume. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is also designed for facial contouring by sculpting the cheeks and augmenting the lips for a firmer, more voluptuous pout. Our providers at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center will carefully select and tailor our treatments to meet our patients’ individual goals.

When will I begin to see results?
Patients can expect to see immediate improvement that is fully realized a few weeks after treatment with JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC. Patients usually only need one treatment at a time to achieve optimal results, though over time touch ups will help with maintenance.
How long do results for JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC last?
Patients can expect to see visible improvement between 6 to 12 months based on the treatment’s location and other factors specific to each individual patient.
What is the procedure for treatment?
Filler injections are minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedures. Discomfort is minimized by the numbing agent lidocaine in the filler, as well as ice. Patients who are concerned about discomfort can ask for topical numbing agents, but the very small needle we use and the expertise of our providers in injection technique works to minimize any discomfort with the treatments.
How are JUVÉDERM’s Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC different?
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC is used to treat moderate wrinkles, correct indentations left by scars, and add volume to the lips to reshape them. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC uses a thicker formula with more crosslinking for facial shaping and to improve deeper wrinkles, areas with greater volume loss, including the nasolabial folds (laugh lines). Both fillers produce exceptional results and based on your preferences and desires for your face, the providers at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center are ready to help you achieve your goals by providing you the best treatment options.
Who is JUVÉDERM Ultra XC appropriate for?
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is FDA approved for patients 21 years and older, who are interested in having more defined, voluptuous lips and smoother skin. As a non-surgical procedure, treatments are fast with little recovery time, making them appropriate for most patients at any time. If you have a history of allergies to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine, it may be best to discuss with the team at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center what the best options for your lips are.
What are possible side effects and how can they be minimized?
Most patients have very few side effects and those that they do have are quick to resolve. To minimize potential side effects like bruising, swelling, and pain, patients should avoid strenuous activities, sun exposure to the lips, and alcohol for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Patients can expect to continue normal activities including spending time with family, running errands, or gentle stretching. Patients who experience side effects can take Extra Strength Tylenol and apply ice to affected areas. There are extremely rare reports of the product inadvertently placed in the surrounding blood vessels causing skin necrosis (loss of tissue). This rare complication can be managed with the use of a compound called hyaluronidase or Vitrase (an eraser for the hyaluronic acid) amongst other treatments.

Our Clients Say
My eyelid surgery results for the facial wrinkles look very natural. Very skilled dermatologic surgeon.
Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.
Nurse Rassmussen answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.
I really appreciate the polite and professional service that Dr. Bajoghli’s practice provides in my dermatologic health. All of his staff make you feel welcome and are concerned for your care. Speaking as someone who neglected his skin care when I was young, I appreciate having a physician who is personally concerned for his patients.
