WHAT IS JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS®?
Dermal fillers are a group of non-toxic substances that are injected under the skin at various depths to smooth out fine lines, deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and acne scars, volumize and define lips, contour the chin and nose, or plump up sunken cheeks or temples for a full, lifted appearance.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker version of it’s sister dermal filler, Juvederm Ultra, which is why it is used to correct more severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth), and marionette lines (the lines from the corners of your mouth down toward your jawline) and to fill in depressed areas in the cheeks. It may also be used in a “liquid face lift” procedure to sculpt and reshape facial contours or as a hand rejuvenation treatment. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is the exact same formula, but contains lidocaine, an anesthetic, to make the injection more comfortable.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is made with a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that’s found naturally in your skin and makes your joint spaces feel slippery. Its function is to absorb water, deliver nutrients and act as a cushioning agent. So when you inject it into your skin, it acts like a sponge and expands to fill in wrinkles and folds and support sunken areas. The extra water brought to the skin’s surface also imparts a fresh, glowing radiance and a soft, supple skin texture. These injections induce a robust production of collagen, which helps to further firm and plump your skin and reduce wrinkles over time.
