What Is Juvederm ULTRA 4?
Subcutaneous filler JUVEDERM ULTRA 4 is a transparent gel-like substance, synthesized according to a special technology, called 3D MATRIX. The main component of this agent is the hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin, which is synthesized with more stable intermolecular compounds. This gel structure makes it plastic, homogeneous, elastic and more resistant to the effects of hyaluronidase, which cleaves hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is our own natural element, which accumulates and retains moisture in the skin cells. Synthesized hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM ULTRA 4 not only fills the deficiency of volume in tissues but also helps the skin to saturate with moisture and produce collagen, which prevents the appearance of new wrinkles.
Typically, this kind of hyaluronic acid based filler is used to solve age problems in patients after 40 years old, since the gel has a more dense structure than similar preparations of the JUVEDERM ULTRA series.
A higher degree of reticulation allows the specialist to achieve a spectacular effect while operating against marked age-related skin degradation. In addition, the result lasts for a long period of up to 12 months.
JUVEDERM ULTRA 4 will be effective in such cases:
- getting rid of deep wrinkles on the forehead, the chin
- eliminating nasolabial and interbrowal folds
- increasing the volume of the lips
- forming a more distinct lip contour
- increasing earlobes
- increasing volume in the area of cheekbones
- correcting the “sagging” of face oval, returning tension to the skin surface.
Injection implant JUVEDERM ULTRA 4 is designed to correct wrinkles and folds by injecting the agent into the deep layers of the dermis. The filler is injected subcutaneously, forming a hyaluronic acid depot, which “pushes out” the wrinkles and aligns the skin relief. Thanks to the lidocaine contained in the gel, the procedure is almost painless. The drug is also used successfully to correct the shape and add a noticeable volume to the lips.
Filler JUVIDERM ULTRA 4 should not be used in the paraorbital area to correct wrinkles around the lower eyelids. For those purposes, “Allergan” offers other softer structure preparations from the same series.
The subcutaneous filler JUVEDERM ULTRA 4 is perfectly combined with other fillers of the JUVEDERM ULTRA line. Therefore, with complex correction of age-related changes, the specialist does not experience complications with products’ compatibility.
