Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance that delivers volume to the skin. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a long-lasting, non-surgical option that contains a modified form of HA. Fillers that include HA are a top choice for patients—over 90% of filler patients receive an HA dermal filler.
To convert HA molecules into a stable, lasting filler, they are bonded together, or “cross-linked,” in a specific fashion and suspended in water to make a gel. The tighter the cross-linking, the higher percentage of HA molecules per mL of water, and the thicker the gel.
“Regular” Juvéderm XC cross-links HA molecules of uniform molecular weights—they called this Hylacross.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a great option for many areas of the face and is a favorite in the lips. This beautiful product will last 12 months.
You’ll need follow-up treatments to maintain your desired results, and as recommended by the provider. Usually at the year mark… but it could be sooner depending on your goals.
