The original fillers offered by Allergan, both Juvéderm™ Ultra XC® and Juvéderm™® Ultra Plus XC are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, and they are both injected into the skin. They also add volume to the skin and smooth out wrinkles. Both products are created with the same process to make smoother skin and give predictable results to every patient and are a synthetic version of a natural component of your skin.
While there are many similarities between the two products, there are also a few differences. Cross-linking within the product gives the patient stability. Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus has more cross-linking and is used for volumizing and correcting deeper folds, whereas Juvéderm™Ultra is best for contouring and volumizing medium depth facial wrinkles and lip augmentation. For extra full lips, Juvéderm Ultra Plus™ XC can also be used for lip augmentation. Both products can last up to 1 year.
