How does JUVÉDERM® ULTRA 4 reduce wrinkles?
As you age, your body loses the hyaluronic acid which normally hydrates your skin and transports nutrients. This leads to loose, saggy skin and wrinkles, which gets worse with age. When you inject JUVÉDERM® ULTRA 4 into your skin, the hyaluronic acid fills in the creases and hollows in the skin, increasing in volume by about a thousand times. As your skin fills out, your skin gets tighter and their wrinkles smooth out. You should see an immediate effect, with the results lasting for about a year.
Where on my face should I inject JUVÉDERM® ULTRA 4?
It is the thickest formula for treating deep facial creases. Comes with a 27G needle, you inject JUVÉDERM® ULTRA 4 deep into your skin to correct deep wrinkles, smooth out deep nasolabial folds, fill in cheeks & chin and other hollow areas of your face. However, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA 4 should not be used to treat frown lines or the area under eyes.
