Juvéderm® ULTRA - Volume of lips. Wrinkle smoothing. Cheekbone Augmentation.

Juvéderm® ULTRA is a range of fine consistency fillers that are injected to replenish the face volume, fill fine wrinkles, deep wrinkles, and redefine your lips to create a smooth and natural look. Of all the options available for treating fine wrinkles and deep wrinkles, hyaluronic acid-based fillers are a highly used variant because they effectively reduce the signs of aging and rehydrate skin tissues. Treatments are fast, convenient and results are immediately visible

Recommended after age 30 for static wrinkles, visible when the face does not move and the muscles are relaxed, (wrinkles on the lower floor of the face, as well as for lip enhancement and cheekbone augmentation).

Treatment with Juvéderm® ULTRA can be done in only 15 minutes, but it may take longer depending on the treated areas.

Using a very fine needle, the specialist doctor injects Juvéderm® ULTRA subcutaneously in different layers - for fine wrinkles the injection is superficial and for deeper wrinkles the injection is done in deep dermis injection.

In addition to the fact that Juvéderm® ULTRA is low in viscosity so it can be injected easily and uniformly, it also contains lidocaine, which reduces any discomfort during treatment, the effects being immediately visible.

According to the manufacturer Juvéderm® ULTRA has enhanced stability and resistance to degradation by heat and the body’s metabolism, providing duration of the product up to 12 months.

After injection can occur redness, swelling, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the implant site. Typically resolution is spontaneous, within one or two days after injection into the skin, and within a week after injection into the lips. Product range.

The newest member of the Juvéderm® ULTRA family was launched in January 2010, based on the Juvéderm® ULTRA 3 product it is specifically targeted for use in the lips.


Juvéderm Ultra 2 saves us from fine wrinkles, especially those in the eye area and the very abundant skin surface. Medium and deep wrinkles in the nasal-mouth area can be smooth and effective with Juvéderm Ultra 3 and the very deep and visible with Juvéderm Ultra 4.
