Juvederm is a product that Jon ‘Ric has had a great partnership with for a long time and we are proud to announce that Juvederm Ultra XC has been approved for use in lip augmentation. In order to achieve that younger look, Juvederm is a great way to get the results that you have been looking for. Stay tuned for more information.
Allergan has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Juvederm Ultra XC for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over the age of 21.
The smooth gel formulation consists of a modified form of hyaluronic acid and contains a small amount of local anesthetic (lidocaine) to improve the comfort of the injection. In clinical trials, the majority of subjects treated with Juvederm Ultra XC reported improvement in the softness, smoothness and natural look and feel of their lips-79% showed a meaningful improvement in lip fullness three months after treatment, and more than 78% of subjects reported an improvement in their overall satisfaction with the look and feel of their lips at one year after treatment.
“As the leader in medical aesthetics, Allergan is committed to continued research and development in this area,” said Philippe Schaison, president and EVP of Allergan Medical. “Providing physicians and patients with premium products that allow them to achieve the aesthetic results they want is always our goal.”
