Juvéderm® Ultra XC
What is Juvéderm® XC?
New Juvéderm® XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.d,1,2
Juvéderm® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with Lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With Juvéderm® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
Where Does It Work?
Everyone’s skin ages differently and Juvéderm® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas*. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
How Does Juvéderm® XC Work?
A healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like Juvéderm® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
1. Understanding Where Wrinkles Form
Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defense against the environment. The dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, is composed primarily of connective tissue and provides the skin with a support network. Most facial wrinkles and deeper nasolabial folds occur within the dermal layer of the skin.
2. Our Skin’s Natural Moisturizer
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule. Much like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. In this way, Hyaluronic acid can be thought of as the body’s internal moisturizer. But, as we age, HA diminishes, which contributes to the presence of lines and folds. Juvéderm® XC injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
3. Experiencing Rejuvenation
Juvéderm® XC dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment for nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. Using a fine needle, your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm® XC under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly.
While there are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm® XC is uniquely formulated. A next generation HA filler, Juvéderm® XC uses a manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology. HYLACROSS™ gives Juvéderm® XC its special smooth-gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvéderm® XC is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved* to last up to one year with only one treatment.d 1, 2
* In the United States, Juvéderm® is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
? Most subjects acquired optimal correction at initial treatment. Some subjects required up to 2 touch-ups to achieve optimal correction.
d This includes all Juvéderm® injectable gel formulations.

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) and is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.
What does it do?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection.
How is it used?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
What will it accomplish?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 1 year.
What are possible side effects?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
Are there any reasons why I should not receive JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC (contraindications)?
Your physician will ask about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. The product should not be used in patients who have:
• Severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies

Restylane® Dermatologic Fillers
he Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, and Restylane-L®. These products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane and Restylane-L may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Ask your doctor which is right for you.
Important Safety Considerations for the Restylane family of products
Products in the Restylane family should not be used by people with previous bad allergies, particularly to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria, or by people with serious allergies to drugs that have previously required in-hospital treatment. These products should not be used by people with bleeding disorders. Products should not be injected anywhere except the skin, in the lips (Restylane and Restylane-L only). Restylane-L should not be used by anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine.
Use at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. In these instances, product use could delay healing or make your skin problems worse. After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years. Rarely, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur. If you have had facial cold sores before, an injection can cause an outbreak. To avoid bruising and bleeding, you should not use the products if you have recently used drugs that thin your blood or prevent clotting. Products should not be used during pregnancy, when breastfeeding, or in patients under 18 years for nasolabial folds.
Treatment volume should be limited to 6.0 mL in wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and limited to 1.5 mL per lip (Restylane and Restylane-L only), as greater amounts significantly increase moderate and severe injection site reactions. The safety or effectiveness of treatment in areas other than nasolabial folds and lips (Restylane and Restylane-L only) has not been established in controlled clinical studies.
JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can give you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Juvederm Voluma is the newest HA (hyaluronic acid) soft tissue filler to gain FDA approval. It has been available in Europe since 2005 and is used in 72 countries worldwide. Juvederm Voluma is the newest filler in the family of Juvederm products,and is formulated with lidocaine for added comfort during treatment.
This current form, with the added local anesthetic, is known as Juvederm Voluma XC.
What Makes JUVEDERM VOLUMA Different
The loss of midface volume is one of the hallmarks of facial aging. This occurs in varying degrees of severity,and can lead to significant changes in the facial appearance. One of the most noticeable changes is the loss of cheekbone definition. Historically, this was addressed with surgery to tighten the overlying skin and lift the deeper soft tissues. More recently, volumizing fillers have been used to provide a similar ‘lift’ without surgery. The goal is to restore volume in the midface to create a natural,youthful face.
This injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids in adults over the age of 21.
Nobody wants to feel like they look out of shape or tired, and one persistent cause of these feelings is a double chin. This aesthetic issue is caused by stubborn fatty tissue deposits in the submental area – the region below the chin. With Kybella, the newest submental-fat-reduction option, patients can rid themselves of that unwanted double chin. A double chin can cause embarrassment in social situations and a loss of self-confidence. There are numerous potential causes from this embarrassing issue, including the aging process, genetics, and weight gain. Even people who are in good shape may be dealing with a double chin; by that same token, dieting and exercise routines are not always an effective solution to the problem. Simple Kybella injections can take away the appearance of a double chin by getting rid of the excess fat in the area. This targeted reduction brings the chin into proper proportion with the face and neck.
NON-SURGICAL DOUBLE CHIN FAT REDUCTION
For years, patients and those in the medical industry have been looking for a way to get rid of a double chin without liposuction surgery. For many patients, surgery is an intimidating prospect that typically requires downtime and may be accompanied by an uncomfortable recovery process.
Strict clinical trials have resulted in the FDA-approved Kybella, a safe and effective way to remove stubborn submental fat – no surgery or incisions required. It’s the only FDA-approved injectable double-chin-reduction method on the market today.
Without their double chins, patients feel more confident and gain a better self-image. They also view themselves as younger-looking and thinner-looking.
HOW IT WORKS
Kybella is a treatment formulated from non-animal-derived deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a chemical in the body that naturally emulsifies dietary fats in the system.
When employed as an injectable treatment, this chemical dissolves the walls of the unwanted fat cells that contribute to the appearance of a double chin. Over time, these disabled cells are naturally removed from the body, and the proportions of the submental area shrink to match the rest of the face and neck.
Your non-surgical Kybella procedure will be quite short in comparison to most treatments, only taking around 30 minutes to complete. Because it is so quick and convenient, it is considered a “lunchtime procedure,” a treatment that patients can get on their lunch breaks before returning to work – no downtime needed.
The procedure begins with the application of local anesthetic to the submental region to numb it. Once the area is suitably numbed, injections of Kybella are used to target the fat cells, eliminating them. Once the procedure is complete, the submental region may have temporary swelling and/or bruising, whereas small ice packs given to you will help with this.
Are you interested in arranging a Kybella consultation and learning more about submental fat reduction? If so, contact Belle Aimee Med Spa Laser & Cosmetic Center to set up an appointment. At, Belle Aimee Med Spa Laser & Cosmetic Center we will evaluate your double chin and determine whether you are a candidate for this cutting-edge treatment.
