JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus
for Wrinkles and Folds
JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus gels are Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring skin component. 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. JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus are safely metabolized and degraded by your liver to carbon dioxide and water.
The name “hyaluronic” comes from the Greek word “hyalos” meaning “glassy.” When used as filler the hyaluronic acid potently binds to water and in doing so volumizes, softens, and hydrates the skin. JUVÉDERM® injectable dermal filler is a non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that requires no allergy skin test and minimal recovery or downtime.
FDA approved JUVÉDERM injectable gel is great for your “laugh lines,” “smile lines”, “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), or “marionette lines” (oral commissures). The difference between JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is the size of the particles. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus has a larger particle size so is designed for deeper dermal filling. Both are intermediate lasting fillers of about 6 to12 months. Side effects were usually mild to moderate lasting 7 days or less and include temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps
