Read below to learn more about how Juvederm Ultra XC can help you look as young as you feel, and contact Dr. Alonso’s practice at (305) 403-1181 to schedule a consultation today.
WHAT IS JUVEDERM ULTRA XC?
Juvederm Ultra XC is a unique injectable gel which works to restore volume to the skin and smooth away moderate to several wrinkles and folds. Unlike other injectable treatments which are specified for use only on specific areas of the face, Juvederm Ultra XC can be used to combat several signs of aging, including:
- Smile Lines
- Marionette Lines
- Vertical Lines (between the lips and nose)
Juvederm Ultra XC works by replenishing the body’s levels of hyaluronic acid, a substance which hydrates and nourishes the skin. It is unique from other hyaluronic fillers because of its smooth-gel structure, which creates more noticeable and longer-lasting results. In addition, Juvederm Ultra XC contains an anesthetic called lidocaine, which makes treatment safe and comfortable.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
Juvederm is appropriate for patients 18 years old or older who wish to reduce or eliminate the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Because it contains lidocaine, Juvederm is not appropriate for patients who are allergic to the anesthetic. During a consultation, it is important to disclose any allergies or medical conditions to Dr. Alonso so she can determine if you are a good candidate for treatment.
JUVEDERM ULTRA XC INJECTIONS
Juvederm Ultra XC injections can be administered in less than one half hour at Dr. Alonso’s state-of-the-art Coral Gables practice. During treatment, Dr. Alonso carefully injects a specified amount of Juvederm into the treatment area. As a renowned cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Alonso has a keen aesthetic eye and places the Juvederm Ultra XC precisely to create youthful, natural-looking results. She may gently massage the area after injections to smooth out the filler. Results from Juvederm Ultra XC injections are immediately noticeable and can last anywhere from nine to twelve months.
RECOVERING FROM JUVEDERM ULTRA XC INJECTIONS
Juvederm Ultra XC is a non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic treatment which requires little to no downtime. Patients who receive Juvederm Ultra XC injections may experience some minor swelling, redness or discomfort at the injections site, though all of these side effects subside on their own. Dr. Alonso provides thorough post-treatment instructions and is available around the clock to address any questions or concerns that may arise in the days after treatment.
