At 740 Park Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stafford R. Broumand offers an expansive array of dermal fillers, including two advanced products from the JUVÉDERM® family: JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus. Each composed of hyaluronic acid (HA)—a substance found naturally in the body—these injectable fillers are designed to smooth lines and wrinkles while enhancing various features of the face for a beautifully rejuvenated appearance.
What Can JUVÉDERM® Ultra & JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus Do for Me?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus are both formulated to encourage volume enhancement and skin elasticity, helping to create a smoother, more youthful aesthetic in the targeted treatment area. The distinctive JUVÉDERM® Ultra solution enables great versatility in filling moderate lines and wrinkles, particularly those found around the nose and mouth. In addition, JUVÉDERM® Ultra can help augment the lips and perioral area with instant and long-lasting results for patients over the age of 21. Comprised of a thicker, stronger solution, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus can often be an excellent option for treating deeper wrinkles and creases on the face, including the nasolabial folds. Results achieved with both JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus tend to last about six months to a year for most individuals, and touch-up treatments can often be received to maintain an optimal outcome.
The JUVÉDERM® Procedure
To administer JUVÉDERM® injections, our board-certified plastic surgeon employs a special Dermasculpt® Microcannula technique designed to help maximize patient comfort throughout the entirety of treatment. The Dermasculpt® Microcannula consists of a hollow, ultra-thin instrument and diamond-tip needle used to carefully deliver the selected JUVÉDERM® product underneath the skin until the desired result is achieved. Due to this meticulous approach, most patients typically do not need a topical anesthetic, and the majority of individuals experience minimal to no pain, bruising, and/or downtime. Depending on the number of concerns being targeted, treatment generally takes approximately 30 minutes or less, enabling many women and men to receive JUVÉDERM® over their lunch break.
Though rare, any swelling and/or bruising that may occur after treatment tends to resolve relatively quickly, and most patients are able to resume normal daily routines as soon as they leave our office. It is advised, however, that strenuous exercise and certain physical activities be avoided initially. Ultimately, the rejuvenative effects of each JUVÉDERM® product can be maintained with occasional “touch-up” treatments, as recommended by your surgeon.
