Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus are also hyaluronic acid fillers, and also replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. They are very ‘smooth’ fillers that provide a very natural result. Juvederm® comes in two formulations—Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus; the main difference is that Ultra Plus has a stiffer consistency.
Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus injectable gels are indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvederm® Ultra is an excellent choice for lip augmentation, due to its soft consistency. This produces plump, natural-appearing lips that do not appear stiff and ‘overdone.’
While patients should expect correction to persist at least four to six months, in some patients results from Juvederm® may last up to 1 year. However, this can vary from patient to patient.
