This past October, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC to be used on the lips and perioral area. What’s more, it is the first, and, as of today, it is the only FDA-approved lip filler that has proven to last up to one year! Therefore, this means fewer visits to the doctor to maintain those fuller, yet certainly natural-looking lips!
What exactly is JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC?
Before being approved to be used on the lips and perioral area, JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC was used to mitigate wrinkles around the mouth and nose.
This remarkable product is a colorless filler made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), and contains a small amount of the local anesthetic lidocaine.
For those who don’t know, HA is a powerful moisture-binding ingredient that is naturally found within the human body and has been shown to keep skin plump and supple.
When JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC is injected into the lips or perioral area, the HA adds volume instantly, and the lidocaine helps to keep the procedure painless.
What have the results been like so far?
During clinical trials, most subjects reported that their lips felt not only soft and smooth for one year, but that they felt and looked natural. Furthermore, nearly 80% of subjects found that there was significant improvement in lip fullness a few months after treatment, and over 78% of subjects reported an improvement in their overall satisfaction with the feel and look of their lips one year later!
Whether you desire to have something like Angelina Jolie’s famously full lips, or just want to add some subtle lip fullness, try JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC!
