Juvederm Ultra 2 before and after use
Since Juvederm Ultra 2 is so smooth, it provides natural-looking results without visible transitions between the treated and untreated areas of the face.
This filler can be an effective treatment in such problem areas as:
- marionette lines,
- smile lines,
- nasolabial folds,
- vertical lip lines,
It also works great for some general wrinkles, for example, the fine ones that appear mostly on the surface of the cheeks.
Along with filling and smoothing of these lines, Juvederm ULTRA 2 also hydrates the skin.
The filler contains Lidocaine Hydrochloride 0.3%, which is meant to minimize your discomfort during treatment.
How long does Juvederm Ultra 2 last?
Juvederm Ultra 2 lasts between six and 12 months. It slowly metabolizes over time. So, patients often return in half that time for maintenance treatments. However, every patient is different and the location of the injection also affects the duration of action.
