How does this work to help my patients?
This dermal filler is a gel made of stabilized hyaluronic acid that is injected to the areas of facial skin tissue where wrinkles and folds appear, where it acts to temporarily add volume to the dermal tissue. This ultimately restores a smoother and more youthful appearance to the face. Hyaluronic acid retains water and delivers nutrients within the skin, which enables it to generally act as a cushioning agent in the skin.
How do I use this product?
This dermal filler may only be used by medical practitioners who have received training for proper wrinkle-correcting injection techniques. Before the procedure, inform your patient of the expected result, indications, contraindications, precautions, and potential adverse events of using Juvederm Ultra Plus XC.
Inject the gel into non-inflamed, healthy skin that has been cleansed and disinfected. The injection technique and skill of the practitioner is essential to treatment success. To inject, use the supplied 27G needle and inject slowly while employing the suitable injection technique. A linear threading technique, serial puncture injection, or a combination of the 2 can be used to achieve optimal results. Inject the amount of product necessary to achieve the desired correction. Do not overcorrect. After injecting the product, lightly massage the treated area to ensure even distribution.
How long will the treatment take?
Treatment is usually completed in 1 or 2 sessions, after which repeat injections are usually necessary to maintain optimal correction. Only perform a touch up treatment if needed to achieve the desired results.
