Juvederm Ultra Plus Fillers Q and A

How long does Juvederm Ultra Plus last?

When you receive Juvéderm® Ultra Plus fillers, you can expect them to last for a significant amount of time! As such, many patients have experienced fantastic results from Juvéderm® Ultra Plus treatment up to 12 months after the initial injection. With that being said, some patients will also require a touch-up injection anywhere from six to nine months after the initial injection to increase the longevity of the filler treatment.

Results from any dermal filler vary according to such things as the patient’s lifestyle, the speed of their metabolism, and the location of the treatment area. As such, individuals with a quick metabolism who exercise a lot often burn through fillers quicker than others. Conversely, individuals with slower metabolisms that do not exercise as much typically experience longer-lasting results.

However, that is not meant to discourage you from exercising, as a regular exercise routine also has tremendous skin health benefits! Such benefits include improved circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to your skin more efficiently, as well as increased collagen production and new skin cell generation.

What is Juvederm Ultra Plus used for?

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus has a variety of different uses and benefits! It has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with indications for use in treating medium to severe facial folds, lines, and wrinkles in the perioral area. The perioral area includes nasolabial folds, which are also known as laugh or smile lines, oral commissures around the corners of your mouth, and marionette lines. The FDA has also approved Juvéderm® Ultra Plus for lip augmentation.

What’s the difference between Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra Plus?

The primary difference between Juvéderm® Ultra Plus and regular Juvéderm® is that the gel that is injected with Juvéderm® Ultra Plus has a thicker consistency than regular Juvéderm®. As such, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is used to treat more severe folds, lines, and wrinkles than regular Juvéderm®.

Both Juvéderm® Ultra Plus and Juvéderm® contain hyaluronic acid (HA) as the operative ingredient providing the skincare benefits from Juvéderm® fillers treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule, or carbohydrate, that occurs naturally in your body, particularly in the fluids in your eyes and joints. HA is also a natural collagen stimulator, which means that it triggers a response from your body to send an increased production of collagen, a fibrous protein, to the treatment area. Such a process is known as collagenesis. As collagen is inextricably involved anywhere that your body is creating new connective tissue, it is the most important protein when it comes to developing strong, fresh, and firm skin. Moreover, we naturally lose collagen as we age, leading to fine lines, folds, and wrinkles. In this way, Juvéderm® products work to reverse the signs of aging, with each product having a specific location and degree that it is uniquely suited to address.

Every Juvéderm® product also has the option of a lidocaine blend to make treatment more comfortable, indicated whenever you see ‘XC’ after the title of the filler.
