Frequently Asked Question
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a colorless hyluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding water, and to act as a cushioning agent.
While other fillers on the market have more granular consistency, Juvederm Ultra Plus injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency hyluranic acid gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called hylacross technology. Hylacross gives Juvederm Ultra Plus its unique smooth-gel properties as well as optimal gel structure that holds up over time.
No. This correction is temporary; therefore repeat injections are usually needed after about 1 year.
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. Juvederm Ultra Plus injectable gel is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. It may be necessary to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.
