Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC in Atlanta, GA
The mouth and nose areas show the most prominent and embarrassing signs of aging — creases and wrinkles that are obvious even when you smile. Dr. Christopher Killingsworth, a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, and Dr. Cristen Catignani, Atlanta plastic surgeon, recommend treatment with Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC for the residents of Atlanta, Cumming, Forsyth County and surrounding areas in Georgia.
Injections for the Nose and Mouth Areas
When you were younger, your skin had the collagen and elasticity that was needed to prevent the deep folds and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Now that you are older, though, your skin has less elastin and collagen, so the skin in these areas is more prone to show your age. Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC is a dermal filler that contains one of the skin’s most valuable defenses against aging — hyaluronic acid, commonly known as HA. HA binds with water to give your skin volume and fill in the creases and wrinkles.
Benefits of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC is recommended as an anti-aging treatment for the nose and mouth area, including deep wrinkles and folds that are resistant to other dermal fillers. The formulation contains larger active particles, so Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani may recommend a local anesthesia to help you stay comfortable during treatment.
Evaluation for Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Treatments
As a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth or Atlanta surgeon Dr. Catignani are able to determine which cosmetic concerns will be effectively treated with Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. During your consultation, they examine your skin, wrinkles and folds, and asks about your medical history, including any known allergies or adverse reactions to dermal fillers. If they determine that Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC is the right treatment, they describe the anticipated results, treatment plan and schedule for follow-up treatments.
The Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Procedure
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, but you may need a local or topical anesthesia for the injections. The product is injected into the wrinkles and folds with a fine gauge needle, and multiple injections are needed. Some immediate results are visible, but full results occur as the HA in the injections attract water to your skin. The results last up to 12 months, and follow-up treatments will extend the results.
Atlanta Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC Cost and Financing Options
The cost of Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treatments at Atlanta Aesthetics depends on the number of injections that are needed, so treating deeper folds may cost more than treating advanced wrinkles. We will provide a complete cost after your consultation, and we accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card and CareCredit financing.
Men and women with deep folds and wrinkles traditionally had to undergo facelift surgery to look younger. Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC treatments can remedy these signs of aging without surgery.
