Which Do You Need – Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus?

From Juvederm and Radiesse to Belotero and Sculptra, there are a wide range of dermal fillers on the market formulated to meet your every skincare need. In fact, it may feel overwhelming trying to determine which filler is best suited to deliver the results you want. This is especially true of Juvederm, which isn’t one single product but a family of dermal fillers that offers a variety of products and uses. By understanding the difference between each Juvederm variation, you can make a more informed decision. So which is better for you, Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus?

Juvederm Ultra: Light and Subtle

Like all Juvederm products, Juvederm Ultra is filler formulated with hyaluronic acid. It is injected into the skin to add volume where you need it most. Also like other Juvederm fillers, Juvederm Ultra is created using a special Hylacross technology that forms a smooth and flexible gel capable of delivering predictable and attractive results.

In particular, Juvederm Ultra is a thinner product that can be used to tackle early signs of aging that don’t require dramatic correction. Ultra’s formula utilizes finer, smaller molecules that make the gel light, silky, and gentle. This means that Juvederm Ultra is an excellent solution to correct superficial to moderate wrinkles and add subtle fullness to thin lips. Expect results to last up to one year before the gel is absorbed back into your body. If you return for a second treatment, you won’t need as much product injected to achieve the same results.

Juvederm Ultra Plus: Tackle More Significant Corrections

Juvederm Ultra Plus shares a few key similarities with Juvederm Ultra, as it is also a hyaluronic acid dermal filler formulated with Hylacross technology to provide extra volume to aging skin. However, Juvederm Ultra Plus differentiates itself by offering a thicker and more stable formula created with larger molecules. This means that Juvederm Ultra Plus is injected deeper into the dermis to support significant cosmetic corrections. Juvederm Ultra Plus can effectively target mid-face volume loss, deep nasolabial folds and wrinkles, dramatic lip enhancement, and overall facial shaping. It’s thicker consistency also helps it last longer than Juvederm Ultra.
