About Juvederm Ultra & Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus belong to the family of HA (hyaluronic acid) and have been used in over 100 countries. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body but it gets metabolized within half a day. By a special processing called Vycross technology, HA becomes a smooth gel and lasts for over 9 months once injected in the face.
Results of Juvederm Fillers
The effect of Juvederm fillers is noticeable immediately with very little ensuing bruising. The positive changes last for about nine months and even up to a year, depending on the location of injection and various other factors.
Uses of Juvederm Fillers
Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are fairly similar in many respects but Juvederm Ultra Plus is slightly more robust and thicker.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is perfect for the following uses:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl sulcus
- Chin augmentation
- Loss of volume in the cheeks
Juvederm Ultra, on the other hand, is ideal for these uses:
- Lip injections
- Vertical lip lines
- Injections closer to the eyes – near tear trough lines

Topical anesthesia is used for about 15-20 minutes before the procedure to enhance the experience. The treatment will last about 15-30 minutes, depending on the amount of correction needed.
For best results, a good knowledge of facial anatomy and years of experience of the injector are very vital. At Clinique Esthetique, Juvederm filler procedures are performed only by the medical director, a Board certified surgeon for over three decades.
