JUVÉDERM® • JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a “next-generation” filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.
JUVÉDERM® employs its unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin during the injection process and provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know!). JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the only filler available with this smooth consistency gel—other existing hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are made of granular consistency gels.
• Proven Safety and Effectiveness
JUVÉDERM® is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
• Quick and Easy Procedure
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is a nonsurgical treatment that requires no allergy skin test and minimal recovery or downtime.
• Personalized Treatment
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is available in two formulations — JUVÉDERM® Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.
• Seeing Results
You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most clients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to 12 months or more. However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental “touch up” treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
JUVEDÉRM® ULTRA AND ULTRA PLUS
JUVÉDERM® Ultra formulation is more versatile and better for treating thin and superficial lines. It is commonly used for smile lines or marionette lines— lines between the eyes, between the corners of the nose to those in the mouth, and from the corners of the mouth downwards. Another application of this product that it can be used to make lips look fuller and more defined.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is a more robust one that is better for treating deeper folds and wrinkles. It is also commonly used to make your cheekbones and jawbones look fuller and healthier.
Our aestheticians will advise you on which is best for you. Sometimes, both formulations are used in a layered fashion, in the same way you use your shampoo before your conditioner. First, the JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus formula is used to cover up the deep lines and fill up sunken cheek or jawbones that are the result of aging. Then, JUVÉDERM® Ultra is used to smoothen out the small lines that have been leftover afterwards, in order for you to have that perfect youthful look.
