What Is JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable cosmetic filler approved by the FDA to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds and increase lips' fullness. Each injection formula contains a smooth, gel-like material comprising water, hyaluronic acid, and lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Hyaluronic acid, a natural-occurring substance in the body, helps plump the skin by increasing the volume on the skin’s surface from underneath the skin.
Over time and 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 offers a versatile treatment option for patients seeking a discreet treatment offering noticeable, natural-looking results that can last one year with optimal treatment.

What Is JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Used For?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable gel dermal filler intended for injection into the facial tissue and lip tissue to temporarily correct wrinkles and folds and temporarily increase lip volume. This filler delivers subtle, natural-looking volume to the face and lips, making it a versatile product well-suited to the areas around the mouth, nose, and cheeks. At Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center, we provide our patients with a naturally refreshed appearance with visible improvements that best enhance each patient’s natural aesthetic qualities and treatment goals. As with the other cosmetic fillers, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an FDA-approved, non-surgical, and non-invasive cosmetic treatment ideal for patients who want to enhance their appearance with a natural, innovative filler that produces noticeable results.
How Does JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC Work?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC contains hyaluronic acid and water as its primary ingredients. When combined with water, hyaluronic acid results in a gel-like consistency. Once this gel-like formula is injected into the skin, it creates natural volume from within, helping to volumize the tissues and fill in depressions or lines, leaving a smoother appearance.
When injected into the lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC boosts lip volume, producing more voluminous, supple lips. The “XC” in JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC indicates the inclusion of 0.3% lidocaine, which is included to prevent experiencing pain during injections. This can also help reduce treatment duration, preventing the need for a separate, topical pain reliever before the procedure.
