JUVÉDERM Ultra XC
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC is a hyaluronic filler that improves thin lips and fine lines around the mouth to create fuller, revitalized skin and lips. Age and environmental factors like sun exposure can cause elasticity and moisture to be lost from the lips and surrounding skin, causing new wrinkles and lost volume. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC uses a popular filler ingredient called hyaluronic acid to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding water, and add volume to restore a smoother, plumper appearance to the lips and surrounding area.
Patients who are interested in having a fuller smile and treating fine lines should schedule a cosmetic consultation with our trained providers at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center. The team at S&L understands that patients have different goals surrounding their lips. We help our patients achieve their visions by tailoring each treatment to their needs, to ensure excellent results.

The JUVÉDERM line includes several lip fillers that have slightly different uses.

As a noninvasive, 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.
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 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.
