If you are looking to add volume to moderate or severe facial wrinkles or to plump up flat lips, then Juvederm® Ultra or Ultra Plus is a great option for you. Our Juvederm® patients in Orlando typically consider this treatment for the following concerns:
Lines around the outer eye area (crow’s feet), Lines from the outer corners of the mouth to the cheeks (smile lines), Lines extending from the nose to the outer corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), Lines extending downward from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), Lip lines or lips which have lost volume
A smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The nurse will inject the injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). The gel is a fine consistency that looks extremely natural yet gives amazing results to take years off your face! Juvederm is performed in our Orlando office in 30 minutes by our licensed Kathryn Bies PA-C. Juvederm Ultra Plus lasts 12-18 months. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is available with Lidocaine infused into it for automatic numbing and comfort.
Because it is a smooth-consistency gel, Juvederm® flows easily into the skin to provide a sleek, natural look and feel. A single treatment presents immediate, optimal results on facial lines and wrinkles. In fact, most patients need only one session and one to two syringes to achieve superior results that diminish wrinkles.
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short, usually lasting seven days or less. It is common for our Orlando Juvederm® patients to experience temporary redness, tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration at the injection site. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
