What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body.  The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients. At the same time it hydrates the skin by holding in water and to act as a cushioning agent.

How does it work?

The Juvederm Ultra Plus gel is injected mostly into areas of the face around the nose and mouse where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds occur. The injected gel adds immediate volume and restores a smoother appearance to the face.

What is the difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus?

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more dense form of the cosmetic injection.  It is also the most cross-linked version.  Hence, it has a greater filling-up-volume effect where cheeks, lips, naso-genian folds, general folds, and very deep nasolabial folds are concerned.

What should I know before my treatment?
