Juvéderm® ULTRA is a range of smooth consistency gels, which when injected into the skin restore volume, fill fine lines, wrinkles and folds, and redefine lips. It contains a pain reliever, Lidocaine, which helps make the treatment process comfortable.
What are the benefits of Juvéderm® ULTRA and who is it suitable for?
Juvéderm® ULTRA is an affordable treatment that is suitable for men and women of all ages, who want to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, add volume and redefine lips. Unlike some other dermal fillers, Juvéderm® ULTRA is not granular, which means that it flows easily into the skin, giving smooth, natural looking results. Because it is a demal filler with a pain reliever, the treatment process tends to be more comfortable than with other dermal fillers. The benefits of the treatment are apparent immediately and many people see it as an affordable alternative to cosmetic surgery.
What does this treatment involve?
The gel is injected through a very fine needle under the surface of the skin – at shallow levels for fine lines and slightly deeper for more severe wrinkles and folds. Not only is Juvéderm® ULTRA smooth flowing so that it can be injected easily and evenly, it also contains a pain reliever, Lidocaine, to help reduce any discomfort during the treatment.
How long does it take?
The treatment can be completed in as little as 15 minutes but it can take longer depending on which areas are being treated.
What results can I expect from Juvéderm® ULTRA and how long do the results last for?
The results are immediate and can last for up to a year, depending on age, how much filler is injected, where it is placed and the quality of the skin as well as general health and lifestyle.
What is the recovery time following Juvéderm® ULTRA treatments?
No recovery time is necessary. You may return home immediately and carry on your activities as usual.
Does Juvéderm® ULTRA carry any associated risks or side effects?
There may be some mild redness, swelling and bruising around the injection site, but this usually settles within a few days. Occasionally there is tenderness, firmness, lumps and bumps, itching and discolouration, but this doesn't usually last more than a few days.
Can Juvéderm® ULTRA be used in conjunction with other treatments?
Juvéderm® ULTRA can be used alongside some other treatments and cosmetic procedures. If you are considering other cosmetic procedures, we can provide you with advice during your consultation.
