Facial fat loss is a natural part of the aging process. Unfortunately, it can also be an annoying one, as fat loss can exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. To minimize these signs of aging, facial volume needs to be reintroduced – and that’s precisely where JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC comes in. This FDA-approved dermal filler is designed to add volume in key facial areas, including the mid-face region (cheeks, temples, etc.). Dr. Tenley Lawton performs JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injections at her plastic surgery practice in Newport Beach, CA.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is a dermal filler, which means it uses hyaluronic acid to temporarily add volume to facial areas that have lost significant fat. The HA gel within JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is much thicker than other formulas, meaning it’s best used in larger facial areas, like the cheeks and temples. The thicker volume succeeds in adding stable volume without requiring a large number of injections.
If you want to add natural-looking volume to your cheeks while minimizing other signs of aging, contact Dr. Lawton’s Newport Beach office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Lawton is an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who knows the exact areas where JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC can be most effective.

Results can last around 12 to 18 months; this is because the filler gel is much thicker than other traditional dermal fillers, so results last longer.
