Juvederm Ultra Plus
Facial fat loss is a natural part of the aging process. Unfortunately, it can also be an annoying one, as fat loss can exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. To minimize these signs of aging, facial volume needs to be reintroduced – and that’s precisely where Juvederm Ultra Plus comes in. This FDA-approved dermal filler is designed to add volume in key facial areas, including the mid-face region (cheeks, temples, etc.). Dr. Tenley Lawton performs Juvederm Ultra Plus injections at her plastic surgery practice in Newport Beach, CA.
Juvederm Ultra Plus Injections From Dr. Lawton in Orange County
Juvederm Ultra Plus is a dermal filler, which means it uses hyaluronic acid to temporarily add volume to facial areas that have lost significant fat. The HA gel within Juvederm Ultra is much thicker than other formulas, meaning it’s best used in larger facial areas, like the cheeks and temples. The thicker volume succeeds in adding stable volume without requiring a large number of injections.
Juvederm Ultra Plus injections can be done within 15-30 minutes and produce results within the first couple of weeks. There’s no recovery period necessary, so patients can return to their normal activities. Results can last around 12 to 18 months; this is because the filler gel is much thicker than other traditional dermal fillers, so results last longer.
If you want to add natural-looking volume to your cheeks while minimizing other signs of aging, contact Dr. Lawton’s Newport Beach office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Lawton is an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who knows the exact areas where Juvederm Ultra Plus can be most effective.
How Juvederm Ultra Plus Works
Juvederm Ultra Plus contains a thick hyaluronic acid gel, which is injected into key facial areas to add youthful volume while smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra results typically last for 12 to 18 months, at which point patients will need to undergo another injection to maintain their results.
Patients should expect slight swelling, redness, and mild discomfort at the injection site. There’s no recovery time needed, so patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Good candidates for Juvederm Ultra Plus are those individuals who have lost significant facial volume as a result of aging. Juvederm Ultra Plus is most successful when used to treat moderate wrinkles and fine lines. Candidates should also be 21+ and have realistic expectations for their treatment.
