Lip augmentation is rising in popularity, as there seems to be no end to the demand for fuller, well-defined lips. However, people should be careful to learn about the products being used, and what type of results to expect. Juvederm Ultra XC is one of the most common dermal fillers now being used for lip enhancement. But how long will the results last for Juvederm Ultra XC.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Juvederm Ultra XC is an injectable gel derived from hyaluronic acid. It is already a well-known wrinkle filler, but has now been approved for lip enhancement. Lip enhancement with Juvederm is a comfortable experience, because the product also contains a small amount of a local anesthetic known as lidocaine. The injection takes about 10-20 minutes, so it can be conveniently done in the lunch hour. Juvederm Ultra XC is FDA approved for lip enhancement in adults over the age of 21.
How long do the results last?
You should see the results of Juvederm XC the same day of treatment. There may be some slight swelling, but this usually resolves within 5-7 days. The final results will be seen then, but the difference will not be significant.
The results of Juvederm Ultra XC typically last about 12 months, and require only one injection. However, a touch up may be given after treatment if needed.
