Juvéderm Ultra & Juvéderm Ultra Plus
If you are tired of looking in the mirror and seeing your fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, or other cosmetic issues get worse each day, then you might appreciate learning about Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus, two products that are similar in functionality.
Luckily, if you want to know more, you can read our entire page on these two products.
What Is Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus
Ultra and Ultra Plus are Juvéderm fillers that use hyaluronic acid to restore volume and smooth wrinkles around the mouth. They are also FDA-approved for lip augmentation, making this product duo an excellent option for anyone looking to tackle that particular area on their face.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in the body. As our body begins to age, its production begins to decline, alongside other critical proteins like collagen and elastin, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles around our lips. Fillers aim to replace the loss of these natural components in our skin.
What Does Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus Treat?
While similar, these two products can treat two different severities of similar issues. Ultra is thinner than Ultra Plus, which means it is the better option for fine lines, wrinkles and small creases throughout the face. On the other hand, Ultra Plus has a thicker formula, making it better suited for people with deeper wrinkles and folds, facial hollowness and volume loss.
The only way to determine which formulation is suitable for your condition is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Terrasse. After examining your symptoms and listening to your goals, he will help you develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus?
As noninvasive injectable fillers, Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus are well-suited for most people, regardless of skin tone or texture. We only recommend having these treatments performed if you want to improve your appearance for your own aesthetic goals, not someone else pressuring you.
Some conditions that dampen healing or exacerbate bleeding can prevent you from being a good candidate for this procedure. Luckily, these cases are rare, but to be safe, Dr. Terrasse will perform a complete evaluation and review your medical history. Your safety and satisfaction are his first priority.

How Should I Prepare for Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus?
You do not need to worry about a lengthy preparation for injectable treatments since they are performed quickly and do not result in as significant changes to the face when compared to surgical treatments.
We do, however, generally recommend that any and all of our patients avoid anti-inflammatory medications and fish oil or Vitamin E products in the week leading up to their injectables because they can cause a higher chance of bruising and discomfort after the treatment.
What Should I Expect from a Juvéderm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus Procedure?
The procedure is performed very efficiently. You will be brought back into the procedure room and asked to hold cold compresses on your face for several minutes to help numb the skin and shrink tiny blood vessels in the treatment areas. Your face then will be cleansed to help prevent infection. Then, the injections will be made into the targeted parts of your face. Once those have finished, your face will be cleaned again, and you will be given mii-cold compress material to continue for a while on your way home or back to work. The entire process should take less than 30 to 45 minutes, assuming that you have already had the thorough evaluation and risk/benefit discussion with Dr. Terrasse beforehand.
What Should I Expect During Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus Recovery?
Most patients describe the discomfort as very mild or negligible. Minor degrees of redness and swelling are also normal but less common, and all of these symptoms typically subside within one to two or so days. You will not need to take any time away from work, school or other responsibilities, and you can immediately begin your usual routines- though working out, heavy lifting or other strenuous activities should be delayed for several hours.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus?
You can expect to have a noticeable difference in the number of fine lines, wrinkles, folds or volume loss in your face. Depending on which formula you get and how your body reacts to the treatment, you can see results from Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus for about nine months to a year.
There will always be some variance between patients, but you can count on these two products to provide long-term results and improvements to your facial appearance.
Can I Combine My Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus with Other Procedures?
Yes, injectable procedures like Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus are often combined with other treatments to create a comprehensive aesthetic plan. In some cases, other injectables like Botox, Xeomin, Dysport or Jeuveau are used to tackle muscle movement throughout the face in addition to restoring lost volume. In other cases, minimally invasive treatments like dermaplaning, Diamond Glow, Forever Clear, HydraFacial, InstaLift, microdermabrasion, MicroPeels, MOXI and RF microneedling can also be performed to tackle auxiliary cosmetic concerns.
In some cases, patients may also choose to go through something like a liquid facelift or nonsurgical rhinoplasty, which uses a dermal filler to adjust the size of the nose or decrease obvious signs of aging in the face. It is possible to combine surgical procedures as well. Make sure to let Dr. Terrasse know if you are interested in having a combination of procedures performed.
How Much Does Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus Cost?
It is difficult to provide anyone with an exact estimate on how much you will be spending on Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus treatment since the total charge will depend on the amount of correction you are having performed, how much material was used and your aesthetic goals.
After your consultation, Dr. Terrasse will be able to provide you with an exact price estimate, so you know exactly what to expect as you move forward in the decision-making process.
