Since this product was exclusively developed to treat deeper facial depressions and creases, it should be injected into the deep dermis. This procedure, however, is not painful since Juvederm ULTRA 4 is infused with 3mg/ml of lidocaine. That key ingredient serves as a local anesthetic and saves patients’ even the slightest unpleasant sensations associated with the injection process.
What happens with the implant gel once it is injected?
Juvederm ULTRA 4 is an HA-based dermal filler which means that it contains Hyaluronic Acid. This is a substance which is naturally occurring in the human body and it hides no risks for the patient’s health. The HA particles in this pioneering cosmetic rejuvenation product were made through a thorough biofermentation process and they do not contain components of an animal origin. As a result, no skin tests are required prior to treatment. Once injected, the gel will biodegrade and it will completely dissolve. This is a durable soft-tissue filler that can last up to 12 months. After that, patients can go through another injection session to maintain the results.
