Aging gracefully is a goal we all share. However, the inevitable signs of aging, such as wrinkles and volume loss, can often overshadow our natural beauty. At The Refinery Medspa & Wellness with locations in West Melbourne, FL, and Indian Harbour Beach, we believe in rejuvenating your skin while maintaining its authenticity with the groundbreaking treatment: JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC.

Understanding JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC

This cosmetic treatment is a member of the renowned JUVÉDERM family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin, attracts moisture and adds plumpness. As we age, our skin’s natural hyaluronic acid diminishes, leading to volume loss and wrinkles. This treatment replenishes this lost volume, smoothing out the signs of aging.


What Does This Treatment Target?

Nasolabial Folds

These are the deep-set lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Often referred to as ‘smile’ or ‘laugh’ lines, these creases can become more pronounced over time, and this treatment is adept at filling them in.

Marionette Lines

Running from the corners of the mouth down to the chin, these lines can give a downturned appearance to the mouth. This treatment can help lift and soften these lines.

Enhancing Lip Volume

While primarily designed for deeper wrinkles, this filler is also effective in adding a subtle volume to the lips, making them appear fuller and more defined.


Tackling Other Facial Wrinkles

Whether it’s the lines on the forehead or around the cheeks, this treatment offers a solution for those seeking a smoother complexion. This treatment works for individuals from all age groups. Whether you’re looking to get rid of existing wrinkles in the present, or looking to prevent them in the future, this cosmetic treatment could be an option for you on the road to healthier, smoother-looking skin.


The Added Comfort of Lidocaine

A distinct feature of this cosmetic treatment is its inclusion of lidocaine, a local anesthetic. This ensures that the injection process is as comfortable as possible. At our Medspa, your comfort and well-being are of paramount importance, and this product aligns perfectly with our commitment to a painless experience.


Duration and Aftercare

Post-treatment, you can immediately notice a difference. The results of this treatment option are long-lasting, often up to a year or even more for some individuals. While temporary side effects like swelling or redness can occur, they usually subside within a day or two.

To prolong the effects, we recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure and maintaining a good skincare routine. Regular touch-up sessions can also help sustain the desired volume and smoothness.


Reduced Dependency on Makeup

Post-treatment, many find that their dependency on makeup to cover imperfections is significantly reduced. The enhanced skin texture, reduced lines, and added volume mean there’s less to hide. This not only saves time and money but also allows the skin to breathe better, further enhancing its health.

Benefits of Treatment

Quick Results

In our fast-paced world, waiting for results can be frustrating. One of the standout benefits of this treatment is the almost instantaneous results it delivers. Moments after the procedure, patients can witness a noticeable improvement in their skin’s volume and the reduction of wrinkles.

Minimally Invasive with Maximum Impact

Unlike surgical interventions, this treatment is a non-surgical treatment. This means you get the benefits of a facelift or a similar surgical procedure without the associated risks, downtime, or scars. This minimally invasive approach ensures you can return to your daily activities shortly after the procedure.

Natural-Looking Results

Nobody wants their cosmetic enhancements to scream, “I had work done!”. This treatment provides results that are striking yet subtle. The treatment accentuates your natural features, ensuring that the changes, while evident, don’t appear artificial.

Versatility in Application

Beyond addressing wrinkles and facial lines, this treatment’s versatility extends to improving facial symmetry. By targeting specific areas of the face, it can help achieve a more harmonious balance, making certain features more prominent or softening others.


Hydration and Skin Health

The primary component of this treatment, hyaluronic acid, is not only great for adding volume but is also a natural hydrator. Post-treatment, many patients note that their skin not only looks fuller but also feels more hydrated, radiant, and healthier.


Longevity with Flexibility

While the effects of some cosmetic treatments might wane rapidly, this treatment offers a relatively longer duration of impact, often up to a year for many individuals. This longevity means fewer visits to the Medspa for touch-ups. However, should you desire any adjustments or enhancements as the months go by, the flexibility of this treatment allows for easy modifications.


Tailored Treatment Plans

Everyone’s skin is unique, and so are their cosmetic aspirations. This treatment allows for bespoke treatment plans. Whether you need more volume in specific areas or a general smoothing of lines across the face, the treatment can be customized to your exact requirements.


Safe for All Skin Types

With some aesthetic treatments, suitability can vary based on skin type. However, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC has been shown to be safe and effective for a diverse range of skin types, ensuring inclusivity and offering a solution for a broad spectrum of individuals.



Increased Confidence and Well-being

While the physical enhancements post-treatment are evident, a less spoken-about benefit is the boost in self-confidence and overall well-being. Looking good often translates to feeling good, and many patients report an increased sense of positivity post-treatment.


Safety and Credibility

JUVÉDERM, as a brand, has established itself as a leader in the field of dermal fillers. With numerous clinical trials backing its efficacy and safety, patients can be assured they’re opting for a treatment that is both reliable and held to the highest standards.


Reversible Nature of the Treatment

While complications are rare, it’s reassuring to know that this treatment option is reversible. If there’s any dissatisfaction with the results, or if a patient simply changes their mind, an enzyme can be used to dissolve the filler, making the procedure very low-risk in terms of long-term commitments.


Complementary to a Skincare Routine

While this treatment provides visible enhancements, it also complements a good skincare regimen. Post-treatment, many find their skincare products sit better and are more effective, given the improved skin texture and elasticity.


Stimulates Collagen Production

Beyond the immediate results, this treatment has a more profound impact on skin health. The presence of hyaluronic acid can stimulate the skin’s collagen production, a vital protein responsible for the skin’s elasticity and strength. Over time, this can lead to naturally healthier and more resilient skin.

The journey to radiant, youthful skin is filled with choices. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is a reliable, effective, and comfortable option for those looking to combat the deeper signs of aging.
