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 doctor in 2-3 weeks to be sure that you are both pleased with the results.
DOES JUVEDERM ULTRA®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 Juvederm Ultra ®. In addition, the needle used for Juvederm Ultra ® is much thinner than the average medical needle, such as those used to draw blood.
HOW MUCH WILL MY JUVEDERM ULTRA® COST?
The cost of Juvederm Ultra ® will depend on the amount that is actually used on each client, we only charge clients for the units used.
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®?
Since syringes are pre-filled with Juvederm Ultra ®, 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 HYALURONIC ACID?
A Hyaluronic acid or HA is a natural acid that is known to help retain moisture and softness, add volume and deliver nutrients to the skin. The Juvéderm dermal filler product suite, including Juvederm Ultra ®, is made from a modified version of Hyaluronic Acid.
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.
