Smiling and making other expressions are an unavailable part of life, which unfortunately lead to wrinkles over time. Wrinkles around the nose and mouth are especially common, because this area sees constant movement. The gradual breakdown of collagen and elastin contributes to the formation of these wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is a minimally-invasive treatment that is designed to temporarily add volume to areas of the face like around the nose and mouth.

What are Dermal Fillers?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is a dermal filler, which is a type of treatment that can literally fill in areas that need a volume boost. One of the most popular active ingredients, hyaluronic acid, is naturally produced by the body in areas like in between the joints. This acid helps to keep the skin moisturized, which makes it perfect for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Other dermal fillers contain ingredients that can plump up the face as well, but hyaluronic acid is one of the only ones that is hypoallergenic.
Where Can JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus be Injected?
This filler has been FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe wrinkles on the face, such as the nasolabial folds. The marionette lines are another area that can be treated, as well as some spots in the mid-face. Our professionals can help you determine if this is a good treatment option for you. We offer many fillers in the JUVÉDERM® line, so we can help you find one that fits your needs if Ultra Plus isn’t a match.
The biggest benefit of dermal fillers is that the results can be seen immediately. You don’t have to wait for healing as you would after surgery. You may experience some bruising and swelling at the treatment site, but this should disappear quickly.
We recommend coming in for repeat injections if you are pleased with the results of your first treatment. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus usually lasts up to nine months, but you can come in for a touch-up appointment before that time if necessary. If you are unhappy with the results, you can simply wait for the filler to be metabolized by the body.
