Juvederm Ultra 3
Juvederm Ultra 3 is an injectable filler that can correct any medium and/or deep depressions of the skin caused by aging or environmental factors. Also known as Juvederm Ultra XC, this cosmetic injectable is produced using Hylacross Technology. This soft tissue filler can treat even the most severe facial folds and deepest wrinkles and contains the anesthetic lidocaine to ensure the patient’s comfort. This injectable solution is also used to enhance and define the lips and fill in acne scars. Juvederm Ultra 3 is a versatile product that not only volumizes but contours the face and can be used to treat any areas with wrinkles, large folds, or hollows.
Juvederm Ultra 3 is composed of the following active ingredients:
- Hyaluronic acid gel (24mg/ml);
- And lidocaine hydrochloride (3mg/ml).
Juvederm Ultra 3 is composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that adds volume to the skin. As the skin ages, it loses its natural hyaluronic acid as production slows, creating visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging. When this filler is injected, it adds moisture by absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water molecules, making the skin firmer, smoother, and more elastic.
How do I use or apply this product?
Juvederm Ultra 3 should only be administered by medical professionals with experience and training in injection techniques for filling. Prior to injection, cleanse and disinfect the skin in the area that requires correction. Inject the solution into the mid and/or deep dermis for wrinkle and fold correction, or into the mucous membrane of the lips for augmentation and shaping using a 27G½” needle. Gently massage the treated area to ensure even distribution.
When should I use this product?
This product should be used in patients who are looking for a non-surgical, minimally invasive solution to correct a number of skin imperfections, or to contour areas such as the lips, cheeks, or earlobes.
