WHAT IS JUVEDERM ULTRA?

Juvederm Ultra is a clear hyaluronic (HA) acid dermal filler and is sold by the 1mL syringe.  Juvederm comes in 2 main forms: Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus.  The difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus is the size of the particles, with Juvederm Ultra Plus having a larger particle size, and thus a longer duration of action and has a thicker consistency.  Juvederm Ultra typically lasts 6-9 months while Juvederm Ultra Plus typically lasts 9-12 months.

Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus is an excellent choice for treating nasolabial folds and the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), and plumping the lips.

Juvederm may be reversed if needed with hyaluronidase.

The XC version of Juvederm adds lidocaine. Lidocaine is an anesthetic that helps reduce pain with injection.

Check out the free app called Juvederm Treatment Visualizer (available in the app store) where you can see what you will look like with 1, 2 or 3 syringes of Juvederm filler.
