Juvederm ultra is a specially designed treatment for facial wrinkles. It is a company brand that specifically treats wrinkle lines by injecting them with a dermal filler. It can also be used to inject the lips and the cheeks to create a more volumous appearance to the face.

It contains a natural substance called hyaluronic acid that is present in your skin. Over time, you skin ages and your levels of the sugar decrease so that your skin becomes papery and wrinkle lines appear. By injecting the substance back into your body, the hyaluronic acid can hydrate the skin and provide an immediate change in your appearance. If injected into wrinkle lines, the lines become much less prominent and may disappear altogether. It can also make your skin look much more smooth and healthier.

This particular brand of dermal filler is unique in the fact that causes minimal pain and discomfort. It is injected into the area with a very thin needle that contains both hyaluronic acid and an anaesthetic. The anaesthetic can numb the area it is injected into within seconds and thus the whole process is quite comfortable. You may only notice a small amount of pain. The needle is designed to be especially thin so that it inserts into your skin without much resistance and hence the process is also minimally evasive. The area is then massaged to make sure that you get a smooth outcome.

The treatment will last no longer than 30 minutes depending on the areas that you want treating. You will also notice immediate effects. It will not affect your work schedule and you can return to daily activities immediately. Because the dermal filler contains a local anaesthetic you will be awake during the procedure and therefore have a quick recovery time.

The results of Juvederm Ultra last up to twelve months depending on your body and the region that you had treated. Your body naturally metabolises the hyaluronic acid so it is not a permanent treatment but Juvederm Ultra is also the only dermal filler treatment proven to last for up to one year and over 90% of patients are satisfied with the outcome.
