JUVÉDERM® Ultra & Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus, approved in 2006, are hyaluronic acid-based gel fillers used to correct superficial wrinkles (JUVÉDERM® Ultra) and deeper facial folds (JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus). JUVÉDERM® instantly fills in and smooths out the folds and wrinkles, so that results are visible immediately after treatment. JUVÉDERM® Ultra is commonly injected into small wrinkles, such as the ones around the lips, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus works well in the nasolabial folds and downturned mouth corners.
How long does it last?
JUVÉDERM® typically lasts four to six months, although this may vary from patient to patient.
Are JUVÉDERM® injections painful?
As with any filler injections, JUVÉDERM® injections can be painful. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied before treatment, and ice is used during treatment to reduce discomfort.
What can I expect after treatment?
Redness, swelling and bruising can occur after treatment. Most side effects are mild and resolve in a few days. An ice pack will be applied immediately after treatment to reduce bruising and swelling.
How do I know which filler to choose?
Dr. Black or Brooke Smart, FNP will evaluate the areas you wish to treat and your past treatment with fillers and then determine which filler is likely to give you the best results. Sometimes a combination of fillers is used to achieve the desired effect.
