About JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus
Approved in 2006 by the United States FDA, JUVÉDERM® Ultra is a dermatological filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substances naturally found in the human body and is created by biosynthesis in a laboratory. It is a powerfully hydrating material responsible for preserving moisture in the skin. Our HA levels decrease as we age, causing our skin to become dehydrated and to lose volume and firmness. With our highly trained medical practitioner at La Bella, we are able to accurately and meticulously inject JUVÉDERM® back into targeted areas to help restore a more youthful facial appearance with minimal risk of allergic reaction and other negative side-effects.
What Areas Can Be Treated with JUVÉDERM® Ultra?
JUVÉDERM® is appropriate for any area of the face, including lines and creases around the mouth, nose, and forehead. The procedure is most commonly used in the nasolabial folds (smile lines), and the marionette lines. It is used when deeper folds are more lift is needed. JUVÉDERM® can also be used to enhance the size and shape of the lips. All of these areas will show distinct improvement after treatment with JUVÉDERM® filler.
At La Bella, we only use the Juvéderm XC line of products which are premixed with numbing solution. Like all filler procedures, numbing cream is applied to areas being treated, making this a fairly comfortable procedure. The results are instant gratification! Sometimes bruising and swelling can occur that lasts 2-7 days.
What is the JUVÉDERM® Ultra Treatment Process and lasting effects?
JUVÉDERM® filler treatment is quite simple and involves injections into the area of the wrinkles and creases with minimal discomfort. Its effects are immediate and long-lasting, with the average patient enjoying a healthier, more youthful facial appearance for up to nine to twelve months.
What are the Benefits and Risks/Side effects of JUVÉDERM® Injections?
The most obvious benefits are immediate improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and creases, and fuller lips for those who wish to augment this aspect of their face. Since HA is naturally occurring in the body, there’s only a minimal risk of allergic or autoimmune response. The only real side effect is swelling at the injection site, but this is normal and subsides rapidly after treatment.
