Fine lines, wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and acne scars become more prevalent over time and can negatively impact one’s self-image and confidence. At the Dermatology Center of the Rockies in Longmont, CO, we use JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus to help reduce, and in many cases, eliminate these signs of aging entirely by adding volume to the loose skin and problem skin areas. What’s more, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus treatment has no downtime, it is quick and relatively painless, and has little-to-no side effects.
What Is JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is an FDA-approved injectable gel. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in your body. Injecting it into the skin helps to attract moisture to the surface, absorbing water into the target areas, and plumping up loose skin and wrinkles. This brings moisture to the surface and can give your skin a more natural glow. This treatment is also popular with helping to add definition to your lips, chin, and nose.
How Long Does Each Treatment Last?
The process for a JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus treatment starts with an initial consultation. At the time of your actual treatment, a local or topical anesthetic can be applied to eliminate any discomfort from the injection. Depending on your specific circumstances, the dermal filler is applied to the target area or areas, a process that can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on your specific treatment. The benefits of your treatment will be visible immediately following your appointment.
Is There Any Down Time?
Following your treatment, you can go back to regular activity immediately, but we recommend that you monitor your skin for mild to moderate side effects. Typically, these include redness, sensitivity, some swelling, and possibly mild bruising in the treated area. As always, if these or other side effects are still present after a week, we want to hear from you.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Although the effects of a single treatment can have an immediate impact on your skin, we recommend one to two maintenance treatments per year to ensure optimal and lasting results.
