Juvederm Ultra / Ultra Plus XC Injectables
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel is the latest version of JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel wrinkle filler. Recently approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel is specifically designed to minimize pain and discomfort during the procedure. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC Injectable Gel are now available at the office of Dr. Kincaid, a top San Diego facial rejuvenation specialist who has been helping La Jolla, Temecula and Inland Empire plastic surgery patients eliminate signs of aging for many years. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is the only wrinkle filler proven to smooth out smile lines and restore facial volume by replacing the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid depleted during the aging process. The results of JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel may last up to 12 months with only one injection.
How Is JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel Different?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel is available in two formulas: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC Injectable Gel, which is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Both are formulated with the local anesthetic lidocaine to provide patients with a more comfortable injection experience. Lidocaine, which works by blocking pain signals at nerve endings in the skin, is used to numb and relieve pain and discomfort associated with a variety of cosmetic and medical treatments. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel contains 0.3 percent preservative-free lidocaine, which numbs the injection site within seconds, eliminating the need for additional anesthetic injections and thus reducing the overall time of the treatment.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel was approved following a multi-center, double-blind, randomized clinical study conducted by Allergan, the maker of JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. During the study, 93 percent of the 72 participants reported less pain when treated with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Injectable Gel compared to patients receiving the non-lidocaine formula.
