JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
The JUVÉDERM® family of products is designed to hydrate the skin and minimize the appearance of facial aging. Each dermal filler uses a hyaluronic acid-based formula that can plump and firm the skin. JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus are made specifically to address smile lines (nasolabial folds), fine lines at the corners of the mouth, and lines bracketing the chin (marionette lines) as well as restore volume to the tear trough area beneath the eyes. These dermal fillers are FDA-approved and can give patients smoother, more youthful-looking skin with results that typically last 9-12 months or longer.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus can provide beautiful results, and many patients choose to combine this injectable treatment with an additional cosmetic injectable for even more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Some patients elect for a “liquid facelift” with JUVÉDERM® and other cosmetic injectables as a non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus can address common cosmetic concerns, including:
- Fine lines around the eyes and lips (JUVÉDERM® Ultra)
- Hollows under the eyes (JUVÉDERM® Ultra)
- Deeper facial folds and wrinkles, such as marionette lines (JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus)
- Nasolabial folds or smile lines (JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus)
During the consultation process, your dermatologist will perform a facial examination, carefully discuss your cosmetic goals, and help you determine if JUVÉDERM® Ultra or JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is the best injectable to meet your needs and expectations.
