Juvéderm Ultra Plus
Juvéderm Ultra Plus Treatment
Technology has allowed us to use minor, non-invasive procedures to correct facial volume loss. The technique is called dermal fillers, which are used to repair the soft tissue of the face and restore structural integrity. Fillers work by adding volume and definition to facial features. They are used in conjunction with cutting-edge techniques such as laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. Here we will discuss Juvéderm Ultra Plus, a dermal filler that is FDA approved to add volume to the cheek area.
What Is Juvéderm Ultra Plus?
Juvéderm Ultra Plus is the latest dermal filler option for correcting fine lines and facial folds around the mouth and enhancing lip volume. It is a hyaluronic acid-based product purified through a patented process known as Ultra-Reduction. This process allows for removing impurities and other components that are not necessary to the purpose. The resulting material is an ultra-pure form of hyaluronic acid injected into the skin to give it that natural glow and plumpness.
How Does Juvéderm Ultra Plus work?
Juvéderm Ultra Plus is injected under the skin to restore volume and hydration around the mouth and lips. It is made of hyaluronic acid (HA) that stimulates collagen production in the dermis (inner layer of skin), which results in increased skin firmness and elasticity.
How Is Juvéderm Ultra Plus Used?
It is ideal for use on the lips for lip augmentation, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and vertical lines around the mouth for fine lines, wrinkles, and lip volume. The product can be used around the mouth to help with areas such as the corners of the mouth where there are fine lines or wrinkles.
Benefits Of Juvéderm Ultra Plus
Juvéderm is the #1 selling hyaluronic acid on the market. The product has several benefits that make it the best choice for patients who want to add volume and smooth lines on the lips and face. The product can help your skin maintain moisture and softness and add volume. It can also be used to lift areas of the skin where there is sagging or drooping. It will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and will last up to two years. Some patients have even reported that Ultra Plus has helped to improve skin texture and tone.
How Do I Prepare for Treatment?
Before treatment, it’s important to avoid blood-thinning medication or supplements two weeks prior to injections. To reduce the risk of bruising, you should stop taking NSAIDs such as aspirin & Motrin and supplements such as vitamin E and St. John’s Wart to ensure the best outcome. It’s best to talk to your physician before stopping any prescribed medications. Alcohol should also be avoided as it is a vasodilator. Even a glass of red wine can increase your chance of bruising from filler injections.
You can also take Arnica pills or sublingual tablets 4-5 days before and after your treatment to reduce the risk of bruising; Arnica is available over the counter at most drugstores. Ice and cold packs after treatment can also help with any minor swelling or bruising. Lastly, avoid vigorous exercise for two days after treatment.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
This depends on the individual and how your body metabolizes the product. Patient studies have reported that the treatment lasts from one to two years, depending on the formula used and the areas treated. Results are noticeable immediately after the first application. When used regularly over time, you can expect longer-lasting results, leaving you looking younger and more youthful for longer.
