What is Juvederm Ultra Plus?
Juvederm is a brand of dermal fillers made up of non-toxic substances that are injected under the skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, volumize and define lips, contour the chin and nose, and plump cheeks and temples. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker version of Juvederm Ultra, making it ideal for correcting more severe wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and sunken areas of the cheeks. Ultra Plus is also sometimes used for a ‘liquid face lift’ procedure that uses dermal fillers to sculpt and reshape facial contours.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is made with a hyaluronic acid gel. When injected into the skin, the fillers act like a sponge and expand to fill in wrinkles, folds, and sunken areas. The extra water and hydration brought to the skin’s surface also provide a fresh, radiating glow to the face and a soft, supple texture to the skin for an even more youthful appearance. Ultra Plus fillers also promote the production of collagen, which helps continue to plump and firm the skin over time.
When to Choose Juvederm Ultra Plus?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is ideal for those looking to smooth out deep wrinkles and folds or add volume to areas in the face with moderate to deep skin depressions or fat loss. It’s also an ideal treatment for those looking to rejuvenate their hands. Those who have used other forms of Juvederm in the past are often recommended Juvederm Ultra Plus if they are no longer getting the same effects or results from lighter fillers. Even if you’ve never used dermal fillers before, Juvederm Ultra Plus may still be recommended over lighter versions if you are already in the advanced stages of facial aging.
Because Juvederm Ultra Plus is also thicker than other forms, it can be an ideal treatment if you are looking for dramatic lip enhancement or facial contouring. The thicker formula also means the effects of Ultra Plus will last longer than other fillers.
The process for receiving Juvederm Ultra Plus is fairly quick and easy. The injections take less than 30 minutes to complete and the procedure is relatively painless. A local or topical anesthetic will be applied first to diminish any pain or discomfort. Then the filler will be injected into the targeted areas. There is no downtime and you can immediately return to work and normal daily activities. The results are almost immediate and you will continue to see results last for up to a year.
