What is Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
juvedermPicJuvéderm® Ultra Plus injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Is Juvéderm® Ultra Safe?
Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® Ultra is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
How does Juvéderm® Ultra Plus work?
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. It is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur.
Where can I use Juvéderm® Ultra Plus?
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
How long will Juvéderm® Ultra Plus last?
Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 1 year. While there are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is uniquely formulated. A next generation HA filler, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus uses a manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology. HYLACROSS™ gives Juvéderm® Ultra Plus its special smooth-gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved* to last up to one year with only one treatment.
