Juvéderm Ultra XC

Aging has benefits – and physical drawbacks. The collagen and elastin in skin slowly diminishes, and wrinkles, lines, and folds begin to appear. As the skin loses volume, it no longer has the firm, fresh look of youth. Modern aesthetic technology makes it possible to restore and rejuvenate your facial with our advanced dermal fillers. Juvéderm Ultra XC is one of the best.

If you are looking to restore a more youthful fullness to your face, plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial wrinkles and creases that have developed over time, Juvéderm Ultra XC can do wonders. Often referred to as a “liquid facelift,” the added volume from the product produces a lovely lifting effect – without surgery.

Juvéderm Ultra XC is ideal for filling in mild to moderate facial folds and lines. The softness of the dermal filler makes it an excellent choice for treating laugh lines and lines from mouth to chin. It is also a top choice if you are looking for fuller, plumper, more youthful lips.

Is Juvéderm Ultra XC right for me?

Juvéderm Ultra XC is non-allergenic and not derived from animal sources making it a great treatment option for most patients. The most common side effect of a Juvéderm Ultra XC is slight swelling around the injection site, which disappears quickly.

Understanding the Procedure

First, before you even think about the actual procedure, it is important to know a few things about the Serenity Rejuvenation Center and our approach to facial enhancement. With extensive research, clinical training, and experience at top-tier academic programs and hospitals, Dr. O’Connell is rooted in academic excellence and experience. If you are looking for a doctor with credentials as well as a dedication to improving his patients’ quality of life, Dr. O’Connell is uncommonly qualified to assist you in facial rejuvenation.

It is critical that the correct dermal filler is used for each facial area. Dr. O’Connell will first meet with you in a pre-treatment consultation to address any questions you may have and to determine your options and whether you are a good candidate for treatment.

The treatment is not painful to experience, as the lidocaine works to numb the area. With a fine gauge needle, Dr. O’Connell will inject the Juvéderm Ultra XC in the right volume and correct area to smooth unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. You may see mild swelling, redness and possibly a bit of bruising after the procedure. This usually resolves in three days depending on your treatment. Results will be noticed immediately and usually last on average six to nine months.
