Have you noticed that your lips have lost volume and shape over time? Or perhaps you have always desired a fuller pout. If so, you may be a good candidate for Juvéderm® Ultra! This dermal filler is created with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance created by your body. It works by adding youthful plumpness under the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles and add lost volume for a more youthful appearance.
What is Juvéderm® Ultra?
Juvéderm® Ultra is a dermal filler created to temporarily add fullness to the lips and correct moderate to severe lines around the nose and mouth in adults. It works by adding volume to facial tissues such as the lips and restoring an overall smoother look to the skin. At Elite Aesthetics and Wellness, we pride ourselves on providing natural-looking, long-lasting results with top-of-the-line dermal fillers.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm® Ultra?
Adults 21 years and older who are looking to add plumpness to their lips or smooth lines around the mouth can often benefit from Juvéderm® Ultra. Individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of keloid scarring or severe allergies, or who have blood clotting disorders should not receive this treatment. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate is to schedule a consultation appointment at Elite Aesthetics & Wellness today.
What to Expect During your Juvéderm® Ultra Treatment?
During your treatment appointment, we will first determine the areas to be injected and then cleanse your skin. Since Juvéderm® Ultra contains lidocaine, topical numbing cream is not always needed but will be offered. Then, your injector will carefully place the filler in the appropriate areas for optimal results. Overall, treatment length will depend on how many injections you are receiving and the size of the treatment area.
Juvéderm® Ultra Results
Following Juvéderm® Ultra injections, temporary redness, swelling, and bruising may occur. While there is no downtime required, we do recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, prolonged sun exposure, and alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours after treatment. While some improvement may be seen immediately, optimal results will be noticeable after about two weeks and can last up to one year. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions regarding aftercare.
