Juvéderm® (Ultra & Ultra Plus)

jvd_collection_of_fillers_4cDon’t fight the battle against aging alone. Say goodbye to wrinkles with Juvéderm® injectable gel. Juvéderm® instantly provides your skin with a fresh look, smoothing away wrinkles, laugh lines, and folds around your mouth and nose – all without any surgery! Juvéderm® can also be used to add fullness to lips for a more youthful pout, or to cheeks for a more contoured facial appearance.

How Juvéderm® works: Your skin naturally contains a hydrating substance called Hyaluronic acid. As we get older, the sun, and a variety of other factors deplete the hyaluronic acid in our skin. This depletion causes our skin to lose volume, allowing for the occurrence of wrinkles, laugh lines, and folds. Approved by the FDA, the Juvéderm® gel formula, effectively restores the hyaluronic acid in the skin, adding volume while removing wrinkles.

The Treatment: The non-surgical treatment is quick and relatively pain free. A health care professional administers a small needle into the mid to deep dermis of the targeted areas. After injection, the gel instantly removes unwanted lines, wrinkles and folds, and provides smooth, youthful-looking skin for up to a year.

Juvéderm® is an excellent treatment option for:

  • Smile lines
  • Deep folds
  • Vertical Lines
  • Lip enhancement for fuller more voluminous lips
  • Wrinkle correction
  • Shaping facial contours

COMMON QUESTIONS PATIENTS ASK:

What is the difference between Juvéderm® Ultra and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus?

Because everyone has different skin needs and treatment desires, we have two different versions of Juvéderm® available: Juvéderm® Ultra and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus. Juvéderm® Ultra allows versatility in contouring and eliminating wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® Ultra Plus provides more dramatic results and is formulated to correct deeper folds and wrinkles. Both treatments still achieve the results of smoother more youthful looking skin.

How is Juvéderm® different from other cosmetic fillers?

Juvéderm® is unique in that it is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to last up to one year. Its cross-linked, smooth hyaluronic acid provides even, long-lasting results. Unlike Juvéderm®, all other FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers are made of granular consistency gels. In addition, Juvéderm® is safe and effective in persons of color.

How is Juvéderm® injectable gel different from Botox® Cosmetic?

Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid filler that provides volume and smoothness to the skin while eliminating wrinkles and folds. Unlike Juvéderm®, which is injected into the mid to deep dermis and is usually targeted around the mouth and chin, Botox® is injected into the muscle to relax it, and is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines. Using Botox® and Juvéderm® in tandem can eliminate unwanted lines and wrinkles, and can give you the youthful look you always wanted!
