Juvederm Ultra 4 Product specifications
Juvederm Ultra 4 is a soft tissue filler made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel and fast-acting lidocaine. The concentration of these active ingredients is 24mg/ml and 0.3%, respectively. Following extraction and purification from fermenting bacterial cultures, the hyaluronic acid molecules of this product are cross-linked via Hylacross Technology. The resulting filler has a viscoelastic texture and a smooth consistency for optimal skin volumization.
What is Juvederm Ultra 4 formulated to do?
The aging process is usually exacerbated by external oxidizing agents, such as excessive sunlight exposure, smoking, pollution, and harsh weather that introduces damaging free radicals into the body. As a result, some patients might experience skin aging rather dramatically, with wrinkles and creases becoming extremely noticeable and deep-set. Alternatively, another group of people may even undergo the unintended loss of facial tissues, which can lead to a gaunt complexion. Juvederm Ultra 4 is made of cross-linked and viscoelastic hyaluronic acid to volumize and sculpt these aesthetic imperfections. Patients can then have a wrinkle-free and plump appearance.
The manufacturer behind this high-quality aesthetic product is Allergan, a global pharmaceutical company that specializes in various medical devices and products.
This dermal filler is manufactured in Europe.
