What is JuvedermⓇ Ultra & Ultra Plus?

JuvedermⓇ Ultra and Ultra Plus are dermal fillers created to correct facial wrinkles, folds from the nose to the mouth, folds from the mouth to the chin, hollow areas in the cheeks, and to add fullness to the lips. Both fillers are created with hyaluronic acid, and absorb water under the skin. The main difference between JuvedermⓇ Ultra and JuvedermⓇ Ultra Plus is that JuvedermⓇ Ultra Plus has larger particles, thus providing longer-lasting results.

How Is Treatment Done?

During treatment, our injector will apply a topical anesthetic to eliminate any potential discomfort. Then, a very fine needle will be used to inject the dermal filler into the treatment area(s). Treatment is quick, typically lasting between 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

Results

Following treatment, patients may experience mild redness, tenderness, and bruising in the treatment area, though this should resolve quickly. There is no downtime required after injections, so you can return to your everyday routine right away.

The effects of both JuvedermⓇ Ultra and Ultra Plus are immediate, with the treatment area appearing smoother and fuller. JuvedermⓇ Ultra results can last about 4-6 months, while JuvedermⓇ Ultra Plus results can last about 6-9 months.  JuvedermⓇ Ultra Plus treatments start at $675.
