The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced its approval of JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC for lips. JUVEDERM has already made headlines as a popular lip filler, and now its counterpart, JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC, has also been approved. Your favorite West Hollywood wrinkle treatment specialists couldn’t be more thrilled!
Allergan Medical announced on October 1st, 2015 that the FDA approved the leading pharmaceutical company to market JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC.
“As the leader in medical aesthetics, Allergan is committed to continued research and development in this area,” said Philippe Schaison, Executive Vice President & President, Allergan Medical. “Providing physicians and patients with premium products that allow them to achieve the aesthetic results they want is always our goal. Understanding that the desire with lip augmentation is to achieve a natural-looking and lasting result, we continued our research of JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC for the lips. With this approval, JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC is now the only filler that is approved to last up to one year in the lips while providing natural-looking results.”
In clinical trials participants noted how soft, smooth, and natural their lips felt once injected with the dermal filler, and how long it lasted.
“I often see patients who have thin lips or lips that have become thinner over time. When discussing lip treatment with patients, they most often express concern over being able to achieve a natural-looking result. This is why I am very pleased that Allergan has conducted additional research to receive FDA approval of JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC for this new indication,” said Dr. Suzanne Kilmer, board certified dermatologist, clinical trial investigator and Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California. “Now, physicians and their patients can achieve the natural-looking results they have come to know and expect with JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC, in the lips.”
One famous JUVEDERM user is Kylie Jenner, who will no doubt be excited about this new development, as JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC is designed to last longer than the original.
“I still do Juvéderm for my lips,” the reality starlet told The New York Times last month. “I would recommend that anyone who gets it done go for a filler that lasts only two to four months. It’s annoying to keep going back, but you have the option of stopping it.”
JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC is available through the premier West Hollywood wrinkle filler specialists at The Kopelson Clinic.
