Difference Between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus

Find Clinics offering Juvederm in London & UK »

There are a number of different products under the name Juvederm  themselves, all with slightly different effects. There is only a relatively small difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus and that is the wrinkles that they treat.

Both are injections that are designed to be pain free and are to be used on the facial area. They both consist of hyaluronic acid but there is a different concentration of substances in Juvederm Ultra Plus compared to Juvederm Ultra. This is because Juvederm Ultra Plus is used on moderate to severe wrinkle. This treatment is for wrinkles that are deep set and have been around for quite a long time. It is a more viscous fluid that is injected at the wrinkle site so that it can have more effect on treating the deep lines.

Juvederm Ultra Plus still aims to treat the same problems as Juvederm Ultra. It should treat the wrinkles and folds that appear on the face as you age and it aims to give you a smoother, more voluminous appearance. It is injected at the edge of the lines just like Juvederm Ultra, through a very thin needle to ensure minimal resistance. It also contains the anaesthetic included in Juvederm Ultra so that you do not feel any pain as the anaesthetic numbs the area instantly upon injection. The same side effects apply between the two injections and you should also be aware that the same contraindications apply. However, if you have ever had a reaction to gram negative bacterial proteins, you should mention this to your doctor for you might have a reaction to Juvederm Ultra Plus.

If you are unsure of the difference between the two products, talk your doctor. They will assess your wrinkles and folds to determine which type of injection would be the most effective. If you are unsure on the choice made by your anaesthetic practitioner, ask them to explain why they have chosen that particular product and what the advantages would be.
