How Does JUVÉDERM®? Treat Smile Lines?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus work in two ways. First, they provide immediate lifting and plumping. They also begin to attract moisture, which increases the results in the days after treatment. As the skin under your smile lines becomes fuller, the lines become less visible or disappear. The skin around your mouth will appear smoother and younger without taking away your own natural look.
What is JUVÉDERM® Smile Line Treatment Like?
Your provider injects JUVÉDERM® Ultra or Ultra Plus under the skin around the mouth. You will feel small pinches from the injections, but no worse than any ordinary shot. The number of injections depends on the size of the area to be treated and your provider’s estimation of how to give you the best results. Treatment lasts about 15-30 minutes so you can get back to your busy day.
How Much Do JUVÉDERM® Ultra & Ultra Plus Cost?
According to healthline.com, the average cost of a JUVÉDERM® product is approximately $620 per syringe. Your provider may use more than one syringe per treatment session. Costs vary based on your geographic location, the type of JUVÉDERM® product you will receive, and other factors. Syringes are available in different sizes as well, so to get the best estimate of your costs, schedule a consultation at Renew MD.
How Long Do JUVÉDERM® Ultra & Ultra Plus Last?
