WHAT IS JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS?
Juvederm Ultra Plus ® is a part of Juvederm’s modified Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers product suite and an upgrade from its predecessor, Juvederm Ultra. Hyaluronic Acid or HA is a naturally occurring acid in the human body. HA is touted for its ability to lubricate joints and retain skin’s moisture. It is also known for aiding the body in delivering nutrients.
Specifically designed to correct age related facial volume-loss, smooth perioral lines and create fuller more youthful lips Juvederm Ultra Plus ® has a slightly thicker consistency than Juvederm Ultra. This thicker formula is often recommended for lips and for deeper lines, folds and wrinkles.
SkinMedica offers a line of products containing TNS, a compound which promotes skin healing and renewal and is a great addition to your skincare regimen.
A daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is recommended to maintain your improved skin.
These important treatment additions are available at our office or in our online store for delivery directly to your home.

Please contact us and schedule your free consultation online to find out more about Juvéderm Ultra Plus ® and to discuss your individual requirements.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
As a general rule, most providers agree that you will see immediate results after your first treatment; however, full results will not be seen for a week to several weeks as swelling and bruising fades over time. It is important to follow-up with your provider in 2-3 weeks to be sure that you are both pleased with the results.
DOES JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS® HURT?
Most clients report little or no pain during the injection process. A mild dose of lidocaine, a highly effective numbing medicine, is added to each dosage of Juvéderm Ultra Plus®. In addition, the needle used for Juvéderm Ultra Plus® is much thinner than the average medical needle, such as those used to draw blood.
HOW MUCH WILL MY JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS® COST?
The cost of Juvéderm Ultra Plus ® will depend on the amount that is actually used on each client, we only charge clients for the units used. Please visit our Product Specials page for current pricing as it does tend to change on a monthly basis.
IN WHAT UNITS OR QUANTITIES ARE FILLERS SOLD?
Most dermal fillers are sold by the syringe; each syringe of Juvederm Ultra ® contains 1ML of product. In most clients, 1-2 ML of Juvederm Ultra ® is enough for plumping up the lips, getting rid of lines around the mouth or doing light contouring of the face.
To treat both the lines around the mouth and also plump and smooth the lips most clients require 2-3 ML. There is an excellent free app called “Juvederm Treatment Visualizer” available for download on iTunes. With it you can see what you will look like with one, two, or three syringes of Juvederm filler.
CAN I PURCHASE .5ML Of JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS®?
Since syringes are prefilled with Juvederm Ultra Plus®, and cannot be shared between clients for safety reasons, you can only purchase full, 1ML syringes. Dermal Fillers are rarely sold in .5ML volumes.
WHAT IS VOLUME LOSS AND HOW DO I PREVENT IT?
Volume loss is the common term given to the sunken or wrinkled look that our skin acquires as we age. While volume loss is natural, there are a few major contributors to its acceleration such as hormone changes, yo-yo dieting, and excessive sun exposure. The gradual bone loss that appears as we age also intensifies the look. The good news is that while we can’t necessarily “prevent” volume loss, high quality dermal fillers can truly give the aging face and neck a smoother, more youthful look.
