Juvederm Ultra XC
Hyaluronic acid fillers are non-surgical options to restore the youthful appearance of the face. In facial aging, the skin becomes thinner, less elastic and loses volume. This results in facial wrinkles, lines and even thin lips. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm XC helps to restore a natural and youthful appearance by filling these wrinkles and plumping up lips.*
*Individual results may vary.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that adds volume, delivers nutrients, and helps skin retain moisture and softness. There are many different hyaluronic acid fillers available on the market, each with a different formulation and consistency. Juvederm XC is a hyaluronic acid filler that has the consistency of a smooth gel and contains lidocaine, which improves patient comfort with the injections. When injected with BOTOX®, these 2 products have a symbiotic relationship and allow each to last longer.
How long does the procedure take?
Numbing cream will be applied to your face prior to injections to increase your comfort. The injection takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes. Dr. Wong and her team will work with you to make this experience as comfortable as possible.
There is very minimal downtime with Juvederm injections. There may be some mild swelling and bruising, which improves the first few days and is not often noticeable. Patients can usually go back to work after the procedure.
Will I see results right away?
Once the fillers are injected into your face, you can see a difference in the volume. Hyaluronic acid can feel a bit firm at first, but soften up in approximately a week as it draws in water. Gentle massaging can help speed up this process.
A plastic surgeon’s touch
While there are many physicians offering filler injections, this procedure is different when it is performed in our plastic surgery office. Plastic surgeons offer years of experience, a deep understanding of facial anatomy, and medical artistry. You will meet Dr. Wong who will design a treatment plan especially for you and discuss safety information with you. Patients have often commented on how gentle we are and that they love their results!*

We care about your safety.
Since hyaluronic acid fillers are expensive, there are pharmaceutical companies out there that give extreme discounts to providers on products that are advertised as similar, but may not be FDA approved or imported illegally into the United States. It’s nearly impossible to know what exactly is in these products. At our plastic surgery office, you can feel safe and secure knowing that Dr. Wong and her team care about their patients to only offer FDA approved injectables that are permitted for use in the United States. Our patients trust us with their health and aesthetic needs; we refuse to gamble with risky products just to save a few dollars.
Call and schedule an appointment today! Every patient has different anatomy and treatment goals. Dr. Wong will discuss the details and risks of Juvederm XC injection and provide you with a highly individualized treatment plan. Dr. Wong always strives to create a natural and fresh look.
We look forward to meeting you!
