What Juvederm Ultra Plus is Best For?
Significant Lip Enhancement – The ability to fill more effectively makes Juvederm Ultra Plus the best option for those that want dramatic results. Deeper wrinkles – Juvederm Ultra Plus was designed to go deeper into the skin to fill out more severe wrinkles. Naso-labial folds – Again, Juvederm Ultra Plus outperforms when it comes to correcting naso-labial folds because it’s thicker and goes deeper into the dermis. Areas with greater volume loss – Because of its thicker consistency and cross-linking Juvederm Ultra Plus works better for those that have significant volume loss. This makes it the better option for filling out areas like the cheeks. Facial Shaping – Unlike Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus is injected into the fat layers, which is ideal for facial shaping.
