Considering lip injections? These treatments have become wildly popular over the past few years, and not just because of Kylie Jenner. This safe, fast, and nonsurgical beauty procedure is a natural choice for anyone who wants to feel more confident in their appearance.
However, you don’t want just any filler. Different lip injections can create different effects, and the best choice depends on your desired result. Three of the most popular lip injections are Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Juvederm Vollure.
All three filler types are based on hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies that binds to moisture. They can be used to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Nearly anyone who wants to change the appearance of their lips is a good candidate for any of these fillers.
However, there are some significant differences between Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Vollure to be aware of before starting your lip injection journey.
Juvederm Ultra is a natural-looking filler that still creates visible results. It’s often used for treating delicate wrinkles around the eyes and lips as well as for lip fillers. At Beauty Boost, we recommend Juvederm Ultra to patients looking for slight-to-moderate changes in their lip appearance.
With smaller particles than alternatives like the Ultra Plus filler, it tends to create subtle results that last for a shorter period of time. Most patients find that Juvederm Ultra lip injections last six to nine months.
Juvederm Ultra Plus
Juvederm Ultra Plus provides more dramatic results than you’ll generally see with other lip fillers. It is often used to treat deeply embedded folds and wrinkles, including smile lines. When used as a lip filler, it creates robust volume.
This filler is thicker and can be placed in the mid and deep dermis laters, allowing it to deposit volume over a much larger area. We recommend Juvederm Ultra Plus lip injections to patients who prioritize adding volume to the body of the lips.
Juvederm Ultra Plus has the additional benefit of longer-lasting results. Many patients find that Juvederm Ultra Plus lip injections last nine to twelve months, three months longer than Ultra.
Vollure is the latest filler from Juvederm. This filler has high-low hyaluronic acid cross-linking, meaning it can be injected a little deeper to smooth severe folds. While it doesn’t spread as readily as other fillers, it’s still smooth and easy to mold.
Many patients find that Juvederm Vollure lip injections provide the softest results of the Juvederm family. While it can create dramatic results, it can also be used for subtler, natural-looking changes.
Juvederm Vollure is extremely long-lasting for a filler, often lasting up to 18 months. It combines durability with the flexibility to allow for natural movements and facial expressions.
