Juvederm® UltraTM

The Juvederm collection of fillers is based on hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the body that carries nutrients to the skin, attracts and holds water to help the skin retain moisture and softness, and plumps the skin with volume. Juvederm fillers include a small amount of lidocaine, which increases comfort.

The double effect of Juvederm fillers is not only the HA, which absorbs water and supports the structure of the skin to plump, fill, and smooth, but also the stimulation of collagen, which the body uses to naturally rebuild and renew the skin, leaving it stronger, tighter and more youthful.


What is Juvederm Ultra?

Juvederm Ultra is an injectable filler from the HA-based Juvederm family. Ultra is a dermal filler with a smooth, even consistency. Ultra is an excellent filler to restore lost volume, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate the skin, and restore the skin’s youthful elasticity and skin structure. Juvederm Ultra treatments are long-lasting for up to one year. We recommend a maintenance treatment every 12 months, but your results may be renewed more often with less product if desired.

Benefits of Juvederm Ultra

Juvederm Ultra provides a number of benefits for patients who want to rejuvenate their features, including the following:

  • Short, safe treatment
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Plumped lips
  • Minimally-invasive
  • More youthful-looking, rejuvenated skin
  • Improved self-confidence
  • No downtime
  • A very short recovery period

Who is a candidate for Juvederm Ultra?

Juvederm Ultra is safe for all skin types and can be used for almost anyone who would like to smooth and refresh their skin and plump their lips without a surgical procedure. Ideal candidates meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health and have no serious medical concerns
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic goals about what Juvederm Ultra can achieve
  • Are at least 21 years old
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no active rashes or skin outbreaks
  • Are not allergic to lidocaine or any of the Juvederm ingredients

What can Juvederm Ultra treat?

Juvederm Ultra can be used to restore volume and treat fine lines and wrinkles in a number of designated treatment areas. Ultra is often used to plump and fill the lips and smooth the lines around the mouth, including the smile lines. However, it can also be used in other areas to sculpt and smooth the facial features and restore lost volume, from the cheeks to the tear troughs under the eyes.

Recovery

There is no downtime after Juvederm Ultra treatments, but you can expect some swelling, and in some cases, bruising, in the injection area. Avoid touching or massaging the area during this period. The swelling and bruising should fade within a couple of days. You can apply an ice pack to reduce inflammation and puffiness. Keep in mind that HA fillers attract water, so there may be extra fullness for a week to ten days.

For the first day or two after your injection, avoid strenuous exercise, excessive heat, or drinking alcohol.
