From reducing smile lines to treating volume loss in the face and enhancing thin lips, dermal fillers have provided benefits to patients of all skin types.

The Juvederm family of products also use hyaluronic acid as an active ingredient. Hyaluronic acid fillers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and adding instant volume with their sophisticated gel formulation. 

As well as lip augmentation, they can treat smile lines, marionette lines, and replace volume loss. Dr. Schwarzburg is one of the first dermatologists in the New York City area to offer Botox injections and Juvederm Ultra in his practice.

What is Juvederm Ultra?

This Juvederm product is made by Allergan, the same company that makes Botox. It is a filler made of hyaluronic acid that replaces lost volume and reduces facial wrinkles. With Juvederm Ultra Plus, you can enhance the facial contour in a number of target areas, such as the lips, cheeks, chin, and marionette lines to improve collagen production and volume in various areas of the face.

Volume loss with age is caused by the loss of collagen in your face and the displacement of your fat pads. A result may be hollow eyes, flat cheeks, and sagging skin along the jawline, also called jowls. Lips can be enhanced with Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus, as well as their XC counterparts.

How do Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Ultra compare?

Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Ultra are FDA-approved to enhance the appearance of lips, but Juvederm Ultra Plus is Allergan’s denser treatment making it ideal for patients who want a better lip augmentation results. Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus can also treat deeper wrinkles on the face, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. 

Juvederm products labeled XC contain 0.3% lidocaine to make injections as comfortable as possible.

By stimulating the production of elastin and collagen, which are essential to youthful skin, hyaluronic acid fillers add volume to the skin, as well as reduce signs of aging.

These two products have the same basic formula and work in the same areas. Some patients find that lidocaine makes cosmetic procedures more comfortable. 

When we age, we lose our fat pads and collagen, which causes our faces to lose their lifted, firm appearance. When it comes to your lips, getting a fuller mouth or pout than your natural one with Juvederm Ultra Plus can make your life easier. Juvederm Ultra Plus may be the best choice for those seeking plump, plush lips without sacrificing a healthy glow.

How long is a Juvederm Ultra treatment?

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a painless and fast procedure. About 20 minutes are usually required for Juvederm procedures. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied by Dr. Schwarzburg before injecting the filler into the target area. 

You should refrain from taking blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, multivitamins, fish oil, or herbal supplements before your treatment, as these can increase the risk of bruising. 

You can use Juvederm Ultra Plus in many facial areas. In addition to reducing wrinkles, it can also reduce volume loss, reduce smile lines around the mouth, and enhance your lips.

Are there any risks or side effects?

The most common side effects associated with dermal fillers include swelling, bruising, and redness. These symptoms usually subside within a few hours or days of receiving treatment. Pregnant or nursing women should not use Juvederm Ultra Plus. It is best to consult with Dr. Schwarzburg before scheduling an appointment for your injections, to confirm that you are a candidate.

How long Juvederm Ultra injections last?

Sadly, the Juvederm Ultra Plus injectable does not last forever, so it cannot be used every day. As for durability, Juvederm Ultra Plus typically lasts between nine months and a full year. Your appearance and body goals will determine the frequency of your filler treatments.

Juvederm Ultra Plus’s results usually last between 9 and 12 months, though the results may vary depending on each patient’s natural contours and aesthetic goals. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC will produce similar results due to its foundational makeup, as Juvederm Ultra Plus XC does. The Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treatment can also be repeated about once a year to maintain consistency in your facial and lip appearance.

What is the cost of Juvederm Ultra XC?

The Juvederm Ultra Plus cost varies according to the filler used, your location, and the injector’s expertise, as well as how much product is needed for optimal results. Your individualized treatment plan will determine the amount of filler used and the cost involved. 

What are the differences between Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus?

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are Juvederm facial fillers. Some of their characteristics are similar, but there are several important differences as well. Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus both contain Hyaluronic Acid and are made using the Hylacross process. 

By contrast, Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker substance that can be used for more dramatic changes in the skin. 

In order to choose the right treatment option, you need to understand the differences between the different products available. By choosing Dr. Schwarzburg, you can get the most effective and safest treatments for wrinkles, volume loss in the face, and lips enhancement.

What are they used for?

There are some treatment areas that Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus do not address. Nasolabial folds and smile lines, which are caused by natural facial aging, are treated using Juvederm Vollure. Another alternative to Juvederm products is Restylane, which is an injectable that can also improve lips, restore volume, and reduce wrinkles.

Using a combination of dermal fillers and neurotoxins in a liquid facelift, including Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, Botox, or a combination of them all, Dr. Schwarzburg can help you achieve the look you desire.

Does Juvederm Ultra dissolve?

You can remove filler from your lips or cheeks by using hyaluronidase. We can assist you if Juvederm Ultra Plus or any other hyaluronic acid dermal filler needs to be dissolved.
