Full lips have been a trend for a while now, and it seems like this trend is here to stay for a long time. However, not everyone has been gifted with the full lips they want. Over time, even those with a naturally luscious set of lips might notice that they are thinning out with age. What can you do to keep the fullness of your lips? The experts at Neo Skin Center in Hudson, OH have the answer for you in the form of Juvederm® Ultra Plus. Contact us to learn more about this treatment or continue reading to know what it is, how it works, what you can expect and who qualifies as a candidate for this treatment.
What Is Juvederm® Ultra Plus?
Juvederm® Ultra Plus is an injectable gel that makes thin lips plumper and rejuvenates the volume of naturally full lips that might have become thinner with age. Compared to Juvederm® Ultra, Juvederm® Ultra Plus has larger particles that enable the treatment to have longer-lasting results. It might also be used to erase deep lines and folds on the face that have been caused by aging. To know whether you can use the treatment to erase wrinkles and fine lines on your face, consult with our specialist at our center in Hudson.
How It Works
Ultra Plus contains lidocaine, a synthetic compound often used in dermal fillers and lip injections. Licodaine makes these treatments more water-absorbent once injected, which means they can give you fuller and more luscious lips compared to similar treatments. Lidocaine also comes with the added benefit of making treatment sessions more comfortable. However, as mentioned earlier, Juvederm® Ultra Plus has larger particles that make it last longer. Patients can usually expect their results to last up to 12 months or more.
What to Expect
After treatment, you will see results immediately. However, post-treatment side effects are not uncommon. You might experience some redness and swelling where the injections were administered. However, these are normal and typically resolve themselves within a matter of days. Note that you should also avoid strenuous exercise, exposure to too much heat and sun and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours after you receive treatment. Other than these precautions, you can relax and enjoy the luscious lips you’ve been dreaming of.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Because Juvederm® Ultra Plus is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that is formulated with a substance already naturally produced by the body, most people make good candidates. We’ll help you find out if this treatment is right for you during your consultation.
