At Boston Medical Aesthetics, JUVÉDERM® XC is used to fill out lines and wrinkles, smooth acne scars, lift sunken cheeks, and enhance the lip size and shape. JUVÉDERM® XC is the most frequently chosen injectable filler for the lips because of its smooth, soft gel formula.
which is a mild numbing medication. Lidocaine is designed to minimize discomfort from the injections and ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible. At our practice, we also ice the treatment area for added comfort.
When treating wrinkles or folds, JUVÉDERM® XC is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The injected gel produces natural volume that lifts up the skin and smoothes out the wrinkle. The results can be seen immediately and typically last about a year depending on the amount used and the area treated. The entire treatment session often takes less than 30 minutes.
JUVÉDERM® XC is part of the JUVÉDERM collection of volumizing dermal fillers. JUVÉDERM® XC contains hyaluronic acid – a natural substance found in the body. Because hyaluronic acid is similar to your own tissue, allergic reactions are extremely rare and there’s no need for a sensitivity test.

Smooth fine lines and correct mild-to-moderate wrinkles with Juvederm Ultra XC— one of the most popular and effective dermal fillers in the world today. Composed of a thinner, softer hyaluronic acid gel than the thicker Juvederm Ultra Plus formula, it works to improve superficial wrinkles and lines with visible results just seconds after injection into the skin.
For patients who desire a subtle enhancement with a soft facial filler that blends seamlessly with the skin, Juvederm Ultra is often the best dermal filler for the task. Thanks to the thinner, more viscous gel — which is made by a carefully controlled method of cross-linking the hyaluronic acid in the formula — it retains a fluidity when placed in superficial wrinkles and lines for a very natural look and feel. Juvederm Ultra is excellent for most wrinkles, fine lines, and early stages of facial volume loss. Ultra is less volumizing than the thicker Juvederm Ultra Plus formula, so it works beautifully for filling minor wrinkles and fine lines. It is suitable for areas of the face that are prone to expression lines. The effects of Juvederm Ultra are truly impressive, meeting the needs of the clientele who demand non-invasive cosmetic solutions that deliver instant results with no downtime. Smooth wrinkles and provide a subtle lift for incredibly natural-looking results that will earn you compliments with Juvederm Ultra.
Restoring volume to deep wrinkles, smile lines, and hollow facial contours is easy with Juvederm Ultra Plus. This is a thicker version of Juvederm Ultra that works to restore youthful fullness to deeper facial wrinkles and folds. This versatile dermal filler can be used virtually anywhere in the face. It is particularly suitable for patients with moderate to severe nasolabial folds, hollow cheeks, or a weak chin.
Ultra Plus provides more dramatic results in deep lines and hollows. This dense filler is best for lifting creases in the skin with more advanced signs of aging. Juvederm Ultra Plus allows patients to achieve fantastic results without the need for cosmetic surgery. Ultra Plus restores plumpness and volume within moments of injection. With better strength and support than the thinner Juvederm Ultra product, it is ideal for advanced wrinkle correction and volume loss. Like Juvederm Ultra, it is made of a smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. With a more cohesive network of HA, the gel is more resilient. Yet it still retains the appropriate softness to look and feel natural when administered by the trained facial injector at Boston Medical Aesthetics. The formula holds up well in expressive areas of the face, moving with the skin, yet it provides enough lift to ensure hollow areas maintain a plump, youthful appearance. Juvederm Ultra Plus opens up a new world of possibilities for mature skin types with deep wrinkles and advancing facial volume loss. With Ultra Plus, it is possible to soften the most resistant wrinkles and creases without downtime.
