There are a lot of dermal fillers available on the market, but if you are combatting severe lines, wrinkles, or facial folds, Juvederm Ultra Plus is usually the best option. This unique dermal filler is the only FDA-approved treatment for severe wrinkles and facial folds. While other dermal fillers work well for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles, Juvederm Ultra Plus is more suitable for those who have deep lines and folds. Here’s what you need to know about the Juvederm Ultra Plus difference.
Juvederm Ultra Plus, like many other dermal fillers, uses hyaluronic acid to plump up the skin. The difference with Ultra Plus is that it instantly plumps the skin in areas where deep lines or nasolabial folds have developed. The hyaluronic acid, which is a natural compound found in healthy skin, also binds to collagen and elastin, which are the other two important components for healthy and youthful skin. You will see results immediately, and you will continue to see improvements throughout the following few days and weeks.
Juvederm Ultra Plus promotes healing within the skin. As we age, our skin loses collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which can make the skin appear dry, wrinkled, and discolored. Ultra Plus uses hyaluronic acid to stimulate new collagen and elastin production so that the skin literally heals itself. The dermal filler will instantly plump your skin to erase deep lines and facial folds, while over time it helps the skin heal itself to give you a healthy, youthful glow.
There are some treatments that also promote healing in the skin, but these treatments do not offer the immediate results of Juvederm Ultra Plus. Results from your injection will typically last about nine months, although individual results may vary. Although you may begin to notice some lines or dryness returning after nine months, it is likely that your lines and wrinkles will still be less visible than they were before the treatment. Additional treatments of Ultra Plus or other dermal fillers can help prolong results.
