What is JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus?
JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus has a larger particle size than JUVÉDERM™ Ultra and is used to treat deeper folds and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
