As we age, loose skin, folds, and wrinkles are problems caused by facial volume loss or the reduction of youthful fat over time. Volume loss causes hollow cheeks, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and a sagging jowl line. If these are a concern to you, Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra plus provided at Nuance Aesthetics could be a solution for you.
Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus are FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, or a type of sugar produced by your body, water, and lidocaine. The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to hydrate your skin, and Injecting Juvéderm creates a natural cushion that plumps up the volume in your skin and helps your skin look smooth, soft, and youthful.
Juvéderm Ultra works by turning into a gel as it is injected. This “fills in” wrinkles, and you have a smoother appearance.
Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus are FDA-approved and very well tolerated. You may have minor side effects of swelling and bruising that go away within a few days to a week. Allergic reactions are rare.
