How long does Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC Last for our Encinitas patients?

Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a dermal filler designed to smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in your face for younger, healthier-looking skin. Dr. Amanda Lloyd and her team at the Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas offer Juvéderm and other dermal fillers to help patients achieve their beauty goals without the need for surgery. Because it is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring component in your skin, your body will process it over time; while the results are long-lasting, they aren’t permanent. So, the question on top of our patient’s minds is - how long does it last?
How Long Does Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC Last for Our Encinitas Area Patients?

Long-lasting results with virtually no downtime

The Juvéderm collection offers a variety of dermal fillers designed to address different issues in your skin. Dr. Lloyd will evaluate your skin during your consultation and help you determine which dermal filler is right for you. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC treatment is typically recommended for deeper wrinkles and folds, especially around the mouth, because of its enhanced support and stability. We may also recommend Juvederm Voluma XC to add volume to sagging jowls, hollowed cheeks, or volume loss on the back of your hands.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus is an effective solution that provides the natural desired results for most patients in only one treatment. The formula is designed with a thicker consistency for deeper injections into the skin for correcting significant volume loss and longer-lasting results than many other dermal fillers. Patients can expect it to last for up to a year or longer, and maintenance treatments can help you keep smoother skin for even longer. Because it is a safe, minimally invasive procedure, patients can resume their regular activity within 24 hours of treatment.

What to expect from treatment

If Dr. Lloyd recommends Juvederm Ultra Plus, you’ll have your treatment in our office. The dermal filler is injected into the treatment area. Some patients prefer to have a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort. The number of injections you get will vary depending on your skin condition, and the process typically takes less than an hour.

While you will notice some initial results, it can take 2-3 weeks for the dermal filler to soften in your skin. You may experience some tenderness, swelling, or red skin within the first 24 hours of treatment, and you should avoid sun exposure, exercise, and alcohol until the next day.
