What are the benefits of this product?
This skin smoothing and plumping implant is renowned globally due to its safe and instantaneous results. Once injected, dermal imperfections are immediately corrected with very few side effects. Besides that, the filler is also highly sought-after thanks to its long-lasting performance. The outcome can last for approximately 9 to 12 months which is quite economical for patients.
How does this product work?
The health and functionality of skin varies according to the quantity and quality of numerous dermal cells like collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. Skin maintenance processes like desquamation—the shedding of dead and keratinized skin cells—is equally important for youthful-looking skin. Unfortunately, biological aging is predetermined by our genes and causes a decrease in the proliferation and repair of skin cells. This is usually exacerbated by harmful free radicals contributed by external aging factors such as excessive ultraviolet (UV) exposure, smoking, pollution, and alcohol. Premature aging signs like wrinkles and creases will then appear on skin, especially the face, as it is constantly exposed to the elements. Juvederm Ultra XC is then designed with 24mg/ml of cross-linked hyaluronic acid that can instantly erase facial lines. Once injected intradermally, the gel acts as a supplementary scaffolding for the skin structure to fill in skin depressions. The integration of 0.3% lidocaine, a type of fast-acting local anesthetic, alleviates pain during the injection session.
What are the ingredients?
The filler material is made of ingredients that are widely used in the aesthetic industry.
- Active components:
- 24mg/ml of cross-linked hyaluronic acid
- 3mg/ml of lidocaine
- Other components :
- 1ml of phosphate buffer pH 7.2 q.s.
The resulting gel is transparent, colorless, viscoelastic, and completely bioresorbable.
How to inject/administer this product?
Juvederm Ultra XC is a medical device which is meant to be handled by a highly experienced and certified specialist. A patient’s medical history (e.g. medical conditions, medications taken, allergies, previous history of aesthetic procedure, etc.) must also be carefully reviewed to ensure that they are suitable to receive injections with this filler. When they are deemed suitable and ready for the procedure, you may start the session by cleaning and sanitizing the proposed treatment areas. Assemble the medical device and administer the implant via mid-dermal injections. If it is used to enhance the lips, then inject the filler into the mucous membrane of the lips. Once adequate correction is made, gently massage the areas for better gel distribution. Leftover gel and used medical supplies are contaminated waste that must be discarded according to hygienic disposable standards. Adhere to strict aseptic guidelines throughout the procedure to reduce the risk of infections.
