The goal of all skin fillers is to provide a natural, comfortable feel as lines and wrinkles are eliminated. The less invasive and noticeable a filler can be, the better.
For patients who don’t want to sacrifice one ounce of quality, Juvederm is the first and only choice. Juvederm Ultra is the highest quality material we offer at Steven Jepson MD, with low levels of invasiveness and high levels of effectiveness. What makes Juvederm so special? Let’s find out.
What is Juvederm Ultra?
Juvederm Ultra is an injectable gel dermal filler composed of a substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in many parts of the human body, and its main purpose is to hydrate and restore skin and skin foundations.
Juvederm Ultra can be used anywhere on the face – lower facial lines and lips are the most common areas where we use this particular member of the Juvederm family.
Juvederm Ultra is an FDA-approved product, both for safety and efficiency. Issues arising as a result of Juvederm use are extremely rare, and because no form of animal tissue is used in its production, there’s no specific testing required prior to receiving Juvederm treatments.
During manufacturing, Juvederm products are engineered to maximize their hyaluronic acid concentration. The result is a gel-form product with even consistency, one which leaves skin smooth and natural looking with minimal invasion. Its satisfaction rate sits atop all hyaluronic acid products on the market.
Effects are immediate, and should usually last between 6 and 12 months for most people.
Speed and Ease of Treatment
Getting Juvederm treatment is a quick and painless process. Topical numbing agents are the only ones required, and the entire treatment can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes in most cases. Most people who get Juvederm treatment are able to return to work that same day without a single ill effect.
Other Types of Juvederm
There are two other members of the Juvederm family of products. Juvederm Voluma is ideal for upper cheek restoration and offers a subtle non-surgical facelift. Juvederm Volbella is ideal for the little lines on your upper and lower lips, and also offers a mild lip enhancement.
