Juvéderm® ULTRA is an advanced, cohesive, 3D hyaluronic acid matrix dermal filler with local anaesthetic, manufactured by Allergan; the makers of Botox® Vistabel® and Juvéderm® VOLUMA
What does Juvéderm® contain?
Juvéderm® ULTRA contains non-animal hyaluronic acid with the addition of 0.3% lidocaine, local anaesthetic to provide more comfort both during and after injection.
However, in the case of lip augmentation it may still be recommended that you have a topical anaesthetic or dental nerve block in order to ensure a pain free treatment of this sensitive area.
Is a skin test required before treatment?
No allergy test needed.
Is it temporary or permanent?
Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler.
