Juvéderm ULTRA is an advanced cohesive acid matrix dermal filler with local anaesthetic.
Juvéderm ULTRA contains non-animal hyaluronic acid with the addition of 0.3% lidocaine and 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. No allergy test is needed. Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler. It should only be used by trained members of the medical profession only.
There are different formulations for Juvéderm ULTRA available that we use which include:
