Also enhances lip contour and volume. Juvéderm Ultra 3, a thicker gel, allows more versatility in contouring and volumising, facial lines and naso-labial folds, filling deeper wrinkles and enhancing lip volume
What makes the Juvéderm® ULTRA range of products so special?
The Juvéderm® ULTRA range of products is the only line of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers that offers customisable results proven to last up to 12 months. It's currently the only HA filler to include an anaesthetic that makes the experience more comfortable for you. It is also very smooth and natural looking, meaning that although people may notice a difference, they won't know you've had anything done!
What exactly is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in one or two days so is constantly replaced-as we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturising and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease. Hyaluronic acid is used for aesthetic treatments, and has been used by doctors for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as eye surgery.
Will the procedure hurt?
The smooth consistency of the Juvéderm® ULTRA range of products allows your medical practitioner to administer it easily and smoothly. It also contains 0.3% lidocaine to reduce injection pain for a more comfortable experience.
Are there any side effects?
Following injection, you may experience slight redness, swelling or bruising at the injected area. Your medical practitioner must advise on this. Please be assured that these side effects should not last and, after waiting 12 hours following treatment, can be easily covered up with your usual makeup. However, do not hesitate to get in touch with your medical practitioner in the unlikely event that these reactions last longer than a week or if you experience other side effects. All skin injection procedures carry a small risk of infection.
