Do you have thinning lips? Are you embarrassed by the appearance of the smoker’s lines and wrinkles around your mouth? Whether caused by aging or smoking, thinning lips can be treated with JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, a new FDA-approved filler that effectively volumizes the lips for a plumper appearance. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is also approved for the treatment of smoker’s lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Tenley Lawton performs JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injections at her plastic surgery practice in Newport Beach, CA.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a dermal filler, which means it uses hyaluronic acid to temporarily add volume to the lips while minimizing smoker’s lines and wrinkles. The HA gel within JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is much more viscous than other formulas, meaning it’s best used on softer, more delicate areas like the lips. This viscous gel makes it possible for patients to enjoy fuller lips without looking stiff or unnatural.If you want fuller lips that look natural yet stunning, contact Dr. Lawton’s Newport Beach office to schedule a consultation.

Good candidates for JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC are those individuals who have thinning lips, or who want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and smoker’s lines around the lips. Candidates should also be 21+ and have realistic expectations for their procedure.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC contains a hyaluronic acid gel that has a more viscous consistency; this helps produce fuller lips that keep up with your natural mouth movements and expressions. HA is a natural compound that can absorb a significant amount of water, which makes lips look hydrated and glossy.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injections can be done within 15-30 minutes and produce results within the first couple of weeks. There’s no recovery period necessary, so patients can return to their normal activities. Results can last around 6 months; this is because the lips are much more active than other parts of the face, so the HA gel wears off faster.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC results typically last 6 months, at which point patients will need to undergo another injection to maintain their results. Since the lips are such a small and delicate area, it’s easy for lip augmentation injections to produce stiff, unnatural-looking lips. By undergoing JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC injections from a board-certified plastic surgeon, you can enjoy more natural-looking and subtle results.
Patients should expect slight swelling, redness, and mild discomfort at the injection site. There’s no recovery time needed, so patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
