Juvederm Ultra XC is made with 24mg/ml cross-linked hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin. Derived from bacteria fermentation, the synthetic hyaluronic acid carries less of a risk of causing any immunogenic reaction. Hyaluronic acid is a water-absorbing sugar that is found naturally in various parts of the body, including the skin and cartilage. Thanks to its smoothing and filling effects, hyaluronic acid is able to minimize the look of wrinkles and folds while augmenting the lips to increase their volume.
The dermal filler also contains 0.3% lidocaine. Lidocaine is an aminoethyl amide that is commonly used as anesthetic.
