JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is an FDA approved dermal filler manufactured by Allergan, Inc. Juvederm Ultra Plus is designed to temporarily restores volume to the skin, and smooth away moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. In terms of the skin, HA's role is to deliver nutrients and hydration, and act as a cushioning agent. Young, healthy skin contains a lot of HA, but factors that include aging and sun exposure reduce the amount, causing skin to lose structure and volume. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is most effective in improving the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth towards the chin. Juvederm is enjoyed by women and men over the age of 21. Younger people with genetic predisposition may choose Juvederm Ultra Plus to soften the lines, while older people use it to fill the lines formed due to the aging process. Juvederm is favored by many, as it appears very natural and subtle when administered by a trained professional.
