What Is JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed for injection in facial skin to correct moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and depressed or sunken areas of the cheeks, for improvements in the appearance of volume and lift. This JUVÉDERM® formulation uses hyaluronic acid in a thicker consistency to address a lack or loss of volume resulting in wrinkles and folds in the facial skin. Compared with other fillers, Ultra Plus XC uses a thicker consistency that better holds shape while offering a smooth, natural result. This face filler adds volume to the face while delicately smoothing deep lines around the mouth, nose, and cheeks.
As we age, we lose collagen, elastin, and other essential, natural-occurring proteins that comprise the scaffolding of our facial structures. This hyaluronic acid filler or HA filler provides a versatile treatment for patients seeking a discreet treatment offering noticeable, natural-looking results that can last up to one year with optimal treatment.

How Does JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC Work?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC uses the power of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, to instantly smooth away fine lines and wrinkles in the face. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a sugar in the skin and joints. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC uses synthetic, biodegradable versions of these naturally occurring sugars to boost volume and collagen production. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC replaces hyaluronic acid lost from age and sun damage, smoothing away the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.
In addition to hyaluronic acid, this dermal filler contains water, transforming the liquid formulation into a gel texture, creating volume. When injected into the skin, it helps volumize the tissues, reducing the appearance of depressions and fine lines. Facial wrinkles are temporarily filled in, giving the patient a smoother appearance. The “XC” in JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC indicates that the formula includes 0.3% lidocaine, designed to help prevent patients from experiencing pain during their procedure. This may save time, as a topical numbing agent is not required during injections.
