Juvederm Ultra XC is an injectable colorless gel that contains hyaluronic acid (HA) and a small amount of local anesthetic, lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid happens naturally in your body, and its role is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin, and act as a cushioning agent.
Loose skin, folds, and wrinkles are problems caused by facial volume loss or the reduction of youthful fat over time. Volume loss causes hollow cheeks, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and a sagging jowl line. Juvederm Ultra XC injected into facial tissues where there are moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, temporarily adds volume to your skin, and helps your skin look smooth, soft, and youthful.
