Adding volume to the lips and improving surrounding wrinkles.
A nice smile and full, shapely lips are important to help make a first impression turn into a lasting impression. This is difficult to achieve if your lips are lacking volume or your mouth is surrounded by nasolabial folds or fine lines. Fortunately, Juvéderm Ultra at our New York City office is a great, non-invasive option to subtly enhance the lips, redefine your lip shape, and help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Juvéderm® Ultra?
Juvéderm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable gel that smooths wrinkles and folds. HA is a natural sugar compound found in the body that delivers nutrients and hydrates the skin. It achieves this by holding water to act as a cushion to the skin. Once injected, Juvéderm Ultra increases volume to targeted facial tissue to produce a smoother appearance.
Using a fine needle, Juvéderm Ultra is injected directly in the skin in specific spots that Dr. Kestin determined based on your troubling areas. The initial consultation and treatment should take less than one hour to perform, and there is minimal or no downtime required. Some patients return to their daily activities after they receive their injections.
In the end, Juvéderm Ultra helps smooth facial wrinkles and folds, and enhances your lip area. Most patients need one treatment to receive optimal results, and these results last around 9 to 12 months. It is important to state, the difference between Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus is the formulation. Ultra Plus is used for more severe facial wrinkles and Ultra is a finer molecule for lips and fine wrinkles.
Similar to other hyaluronic acid injections, Juvéderm Ultra may cause redness, pain, lumps, swelling, firmness, bruising and itching at the injection site. Although rare, most side effects are mild and last about a week or less. Dr. Kestin will address all the risks associated with the injection process during your initial consultation.
