What can be treated?
Juvederm® ULTRA is a range of smooth consistency gels which are injected to restore volume, fill fine lines, wrinkles and folds and redefine lips. The smooth consistency is due to its advanced formulation. The most common areas are the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth) and the lips and mouth area and is selected to enhance lip volume, redefine lip shape and to treat vertical lip lines and depressions at the corner of the mouth. We can also fill cheeks, the chin area, neck hands and décolletage.
Does it hurt?
Not only is Juvéderm® ULTRA smooth flowing so that it can be injected easily and evenly, but it contain lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort during the treatment and the effects of treatment are apparent immediately. Most people find the injections relatively painless.
The results can be seen immediately; although there may be some initial swelling and bruising. Techniques for reducing these will be discussed at your treatment session.
What will I look like after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature and resolve within a few days. After a lip treatment the lips may become slightly swollen. This can persist for a few days.
How long do the effects last?
The duration of effect can depend on age, how much filler is injected, where it is placed, the quality of the skin as well as general health and lifestyle. With the Juvéderm® ULTRA range however, the beneficial effects can be expected to last for up to one year after treatment.
What should I bear in mind after my treatment?
During the first 48 hours after your treatment, do not massage or rub the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first two days after the treatment. Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (in a solarium or by sunbathing).
Can the filler be removed?
At Diamond Aesthetics we do not use fillers that cannot be reversed. Certain enzymes and steroids are available to dissolve the fillers.
