Laughing and smiling is good for the soul and reflects a happy, fulfilling life. Unfortunately, however, these expressions can lead to smile lines that can create an aged appearance. The good news is that if you are bothered by smile lines, there are non-invasive solutions known as Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus that can help you out. Let’s dive deeper into what these injections are and how they work.
How Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus Work
While Juvederm Ultra is intended for mild to moderate lines and wrinkles, Juvederm Ultra Plus is for deep wrinkles and folds. The key ingredient in both of these injectables is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that works with water to provide you with a plump, youthful appearance.
As you get older, you produce less hyaluronic acid and therefore experience fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus works by reintroducing hyaluronic acid into the area around your mouth and resolving the smile lines that you may have developed.
Since Juvederm treatments only take anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes to complete and come with virtually no downtime, you can receive them on your lunch break. You can return to work and your daily activities immediately after treatment. If you do experience some minor side effects such as redness, swelling, and bruising, rest assured they will resolve on their own within a few days after the treatment.
Believe it or not, these injectables can leave you with beautiful results for up to a year. You are welcome to receive maintenance treatments when you begin to see the results wearing off.
Good Candidates for Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus
If you are looking for a non-surgical way to get rid of smile lines, Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus may be right for you. We do not recommend these injectables if you are a smoker, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have serious health problems, or are allergic to any ingredient in the formula. By scheduling a consultation, you can determine which treatment is ideal for your particular anti-aging needs.
