Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC in Orange County, CA

Used to treat deep facial lines and folds, Dr. Furze’s patients are thrilled with the result: long-lasting youthful, natural appearance. Dr. Furze, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, performs all Juvederm Ultra Plus XC injections himself.

What is Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC?

Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC is a restorative treatment that can add volume to age-depleted facial tissue. Part of the Juvéderm family of temporary injectable dermal fillers, Ultra Plus XC smoothes and revives, giving the face an instant lift. Dr. Alexis Furze, an Orange County plastic surgeon and expert in injectable therapies, recommends Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC for patients who want a reliable, minimally-invasive alternative to surgery.

What Does Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC Treat?

FDA-approved for mid to deep injection, Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC is ideal for treating static wrinkles such as:

  • Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
  • The creases that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth (also called nasolabial folds, smile lines or parentheses)
  • Marionette lines


How Does Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC Work?

Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), an essential sugar that is naturally found in the skin and tissues. Hyaluronic acid delivers nutrients and binds with water; its hydrating properties help keep the skin lubricated and tissues well-cushioned. Unfortunately, the production of hyaluronic acid slows as we age. As our ability to consistently replenish HA decreases, our skin loses volume and structure. Administered with a fine needle, Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC reintroduces hyaluronic acid to the skin to temporarily offset volume loss. An office visit is fast and there is no downtime involved.

How Long Does Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC Last?

Once injected, Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC instantly plumps the skin. The smooth gel contains a numbing agent called lidocaine, which helps reduce any potential discomfort during the procedure. For most individuals a single treatment will suffice and the results typically last about one year. Most of Dr. Furze’s patients are pleased with the natural-looking results and often opt for periodic touch ups to maintain the benefits.

Ideal Candidates for Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC

Because hyaluronic acid is not a foreign compound, Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC poses few risks or adverse side effects and is considered safe to use on all skin types. Ideal candidates have:

  • Visible volume loss and wrinkle formation
  • Skin that retains some elasticity
  • A desire to improve the quality of the skin, but are not inclined to pursue surgery
  • Realistic expectations about the outcome

While Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC can dramatically improve the appearance of folds and creases, it has its limitations. In general, injectable fillers will not be effective on skin that is showing advanced signs of aging (severe laxity and volume loss).

In addition, if you have a history of severe allergies or are sensitive to the anesthesia lidocaine, Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC is not an appropriate option for you. Dr. Furze can advise you on the best way to counteract volume loss and improve your appearance.

One of the most popular dermal fillers on the market, Juvedérm® Ultra Plus XC is a top choice for many of Dr. Furze’s patients. Contact his Orange County, California office to schedule your injectable filler consultation.
