Subtle Way to Look Younger
The old adage, “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone” holds true with your skin. Young skin typically has a great deal of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally hydrating substance. This is not something most people think about…until it starts to deplete due to age, environmental stresses and other factors. Less HA in your skin leads to the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
Colorado Ophthalmology Associates is proud to offer dermal filler treatment for facial lines and wrinkles in our Denver and Lakewood locations. Our doctors have found JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus treatments to be the most effective method to help men and women restore their facial youthfulness.
How JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus Works
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is a smooth, non-surgical dermal filler gel that is injected into the skin to fill back in the depleted HA in your skin. Facial volume is replenished and wrinkles and folds are smoothed. Best of all, most patients don’t look like they’ve had a treatment and the results can last up to one year.
Side Effects of JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus
While the actual injections of JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus typically only produce minimal discomfort, some patients do experience slight after effects in the injected area, such as pain, tenderness, swelling, itching, redness, bumps, bruising or infection. It is possible to have an allergic reaction to JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus, so it is important to inform your doctor about any medical condition you have prior to treatment.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus Downtime
There is typically only minimal recovery and downtime after a JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus injection. For 24 hours after treatment, patients should avoid strenuous activities, alcohol or over exposure to sun or heat.
