Juvederm Ultra Plus Treatment Q and A

How long does Juvederm Ultra Plus last?

The effects of Juvederm Ultra Plus have proven to last for a full year with expert administration and sufficient aftercare! However, those who receive the Juvéderm® Ultra Plus filler may require a touch-up injection approximately six to nine months after the initial injection for optimal results.

That said, results are not uniform for every patient, as they could last longer or shorter depending on such things as your metabolism and lifestyle. As such, if you have a fast metabolism and exercise frequently, the Juvéderm® Ultra Plus filler will likely wear off faster than the average patient. Likewise, if you have a slower metabolism and only exercise occasionally, your results from Juvéderm® Ultra Plus fillers will likely last longer than the average patient.

Results may also last longer with more injections, but too many injections could result in less aesthetically pleasing results.

For optimal results, it is best to avoid alcohol, strenuous exercise, and intense heat sources, such as saunas, tanning, or hot tubs, within six to ten hours after treatment. Be sure to maintain regular skincare routines after Juvederm treatment, such as avoiding too much sun exposure and keeping your skin hydrated.

What is Juvederm Ultra Plus used for?

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is an excellent filler that helps with folds, lost volume, lines, and wrinkles. It is particularly effective for treating marionette lines, laugh and smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, oral commissures at the corners of your mouth, as well as lip augmentation.

The critical ingredients in Juvéderm® Ultra Plus for the treatment of folds, lines, and wrinkles are hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in your body and water. When HA and water are combined, a gel-like substance forms, which hydrates your skin, adds volume at the injection site, and fills in any folds, lines, or wrinkles in the treatment area.

Moreover, hyaluronic acid also stimulates increased collagen production in the treatment area to extend treatment effectiveness. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in your body that is primarily responsible for creating new connective tissues. As such, increased collagen production provides fresher looking skin in the treatment area.

Where can you use Juvederm Ultra Plus?

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Juvéderm® Ultra Plus with indications for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in the lip and perioral area, which includes nasolabial folds, oral commissures around the corners of your mouth, and marionette lines. The FDA has also approved Juvéderm Ultra Plus for lip augmentation treatment. We are more than happy to provide Juvéderm® Ultra Plus treatment for lip augmentation treatment or to treat any moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in the perioral area at Reddy Aesthetics!
