Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus
Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning, and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of these furrows. Until recently, injectable collagen was the most widely used available cosmetic filler to improve the appearance of these lines.
Juvéderm is used for the correction of mild to moderate wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm provides the highest concentration of non-animal cross-linked hyaluronic acid in a dermal filler for a longer duration of cosmetic correction. Many clients prefer a non-surgical option for correction versus a surgical intervention. Juvéderm provides volume and fullness back to areas of loss for a more youthful, immediate result.
There are two specific types of Juvéderm dermal filler. Juvéderm Plus is specifically made for more delicate areas such as the lip augmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a higher linked concentration for areas that need more correction and volume such as in deeper folds and severe wrinkles.
