Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
Treating age-related volume loss.
What is Juvéderm® Ultra Plus?
For individuals with more significant aging issues, such a deflated lips, nasolabial folds, hollow cheeks and deep wrinkles, Dr. Kestin recommends Juvéderm Ultra Plus. Although minor corrections are made with Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus is for more dramatic changes of age-related volume loss. An initial consultation is necessary to determine which Juvéderm product would work best for your specific cosmetic improvements. With a more enhanced filling ability than Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus is still a hyaluronic acid formulation, but more stable and thicker to achieve more striking results. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar compound found in the body that supports a hydrated, healthy-appearing skin. Once injected, this formula instantly adds volume to facial tissue, which smooths and refreshes your appearance leaving you with the results you desire.
During treatment, Dr. Kestin will meticulously inject Juvéderm Ultra Plus into specified areas where facial wrinkles and folds occur. Ultra Plus is also injected deeper into the dermis than Ultra to effectively improve profound folds and wrinkles. The specific injection treatment varies based on your specific cosmetic concerns and desires. The entire process should take no longer than one hour and there is no downtime required for this treatment. Most patients only need one session to reach their final goal and results last up to a year after treatment. Since this is a temporary solution, touch-up treatments may be necessary to maintain the results. However, patients can receive significant lip enhancement, improvement of deeper wrinkles, correction of volume loss, and desirable facial shaping without losing the characteristics that are true to them.
What are the Risks?
Side effects of Juvéderm Ultra Plus may include redness, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching, lumps, and pain at the injection sites. The effects are mild and generally disappear within a week. However, these are not the only side effects and Dr. Kestin will inform you of all complications during your initial consultation. Some patients need a more significant improvement for their age-related imperfections, such as wrinkles, folds and decreased volume, so our New York City office offers Juvéderm Ultra Plus as part of the solution.
