Juvéderm Ultra Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm is one of the most popular collections of dermal fillers. Juvéderm Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Voluma are all very popular fillers, and for good reason. If you want to get rid of wrinkles and restore lost volume, Juvéderm might be right for you. Here’s what you should know.
The Juvéderm family of fillers is a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers. HA occurs naturally in the body. It carries nutrients to the skin, retains moisture and softness, and adds volume. These fillers also contain small amounts of lidocaine for added comfort during injection.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Fillers made from HA have a dual purpose. First, they absorb water to support structures under the skin. This creates a more youthful appearance. Second, research shows that HA fillers support the body’s ability to produce new collagen. Collagen production aids in reducing deep lines and creases from the within the skin, plus it lasts for an extended time. Even after the filler starts to breakdown, new collagen keeps forming. This provides longer lasting rejuvenation than other types of fillers.
Juvéderm Ultra is a dermal filler with a smooth consistency. This advanced filler is perfect for restoring volume and hydration to the skin. It boosts skin elasticity and provides support. Ultra is commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, under the eyes, and for lip augmentation. Juvéderm Ultra smooths away smile lines and wrinkles, restores facial contours and volume and it can last up to a year.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus
Ultra Plus is thicker and therefore it holds its shape better and offers more volume than Juvéderm Ultra. This filler is best for erasing deeper folds and wrinkles. It typically treats moderate to severe nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and depressed areas of volume loss on the cheeks. It can also rejuvenate volume loss in the top of the hands. Results of Juvéderm Ultra Plus last up to one year.
Voluma is the thickest filler in the collection. It was approved by the FDA for volumizing and augmenting the cheeks. It can also treat deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
