How does this product work?
The health and functionality of skin varies according to the quantity and quality of numerous dermal cells like collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. Skin maintenance processes like desquamation—the shedding of dead and keratinized skin cells—are equally important for youthful-looking skin. Unfortunately, biological aging is predetermined by genes. Regardless, aging causes a decrease in the proliferation and repair of skin cells.
This is usually exacerbated by harmful free radicals contributed by external aging factors such as excessive ultraviolet (UV) exposure, smoking, pollution, and alcohol. Premature aging signs like wrinkles and creases will then appear on skin, especially the face, as it is constantly exposed to the elements.
Juvederm Ultra XC is then designed with 24mg/ml of cross-linked hyaluronic acid that can instantly erase facial lines. Once injected intradermally, the gel attracts water to support the skin structure to fill in skin depressions. The integration of 0.3% lidocaine, a type of fast-acting local anesthetic, alleviates pain during the injection session.
