JUVEDERM® ULTRA 2
Juvederm Ultra 2 is a dermal filler made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and to provide lip definition. This biocompatible filler gives immediate, natural looking results. A local anesthetic, lidocaine hydrochloride, is added to improve tolerability and overall patient’s comfort. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that lubricates joints and hydrates the skin. By retaining moisture, it fills moderate lines and skin depressions to reveal a smoother and more rejuvenated skin.
What Juvederm Ultra 2 is formulated to do
This facial filler is specially formulated using the patented Hyalacross process to create hyaluronic acid molecules with a smoother or more homogenized consistency. When injected intradermally, it replenishes the diminishing levels of HA in the skin. Aside from boosting hydration, Juvederm Ultra 2 can also replace volume loss and improve the look of hollow, sagging skin. It also helps plump the lip area for a more defined look.
