Juvederm Ultra Plus is an elective cosmetic treatment used for facial rejuvenation and anti-aging preventative care. This soft-tissue filler can show almost immediate results, restoring naturally smoother and younger-looking features. At Avani Derm Spa, we offer Juvederm Ultra Plus for St. Louis patients.
What Is Juvederm Ultra Plus?
Juvederm Ultra Plus is an injectable cosmetic dermal filler. Fillers are products injected beneath the skin in order to address signs of aging and restore or enhance volume. These procedures are minimally invasive and non-surgical, and they do not require any downtime or recovery time. They are among the most common cosmetic procedures and continue to grow in popularity.
It is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a clear substance that is naturally found and produced in the body. It is most prominently found in the skin, joints, and connective tissues, contributing to what keeps the aging process slow and people looking young.
The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to retain water, keeping the tissue in the skin moistened. As we age, our bodies produce less HA, causing wrinkles and a decline in skin elasticity. Juvederm Ultra Plus supplements the body’s supply of HA.
What Can Juvederm Ultra Plus Treat?
This injectable product can treat moderate and deep lines and creases, scarring, and areas of the face experiencing lost volume due to aging. Lips, cheeks, and even the nose can be contoured to add a plump and defined look to areas losing their fullness. It can smooth away deep wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smoker’s lines, and parentheses lines.
After a short consultation to go over your skin concerns and any prior skin treatments you’ve had, you will undergo the treatment. First, your skin will be cleaned at the injection site. If you have a low pain tolerance, you may elect for topical numbing cream. However, for most people, this is not required.
The filler is administered to the treatment areas using a very small needle, and most experience little to no discomfort. Your injection session will typically last less than 15 minutes, and you can proceed with your day immediately afterwards.
Results and Aftercare
There is no downtime necessary after injectable cosmetic procedures. You may experience a mild headache, along with slight bruising and redness at or near the injection sites; these issues are normal and will subside on their own. You will want to avoid excessive exercise and massaging of the area for up to 24 hours post-treatment.
Most patients see immediate results, with maximum results being reached a week or two after treatment. Multiple injections may be required to reach desired results. Results vary depending on the patient’s metabolism and the area of injection, but your session can typically last up to one year.
How Much Does Juvederm Ultra Plus Cost?
Injectables are a less-expensive alternative to most invasive surgeries and procedures. The cost of Juvederm Ultra Plus is determined by many factors, including the issue being treated and the number of treatments required. As with any elective procedure, your insurance will not cover the price of Juvederm Ultra Plus injections.
