The : The juvderm ultra plus formulation is thicker so lasts longer. This can be beneficial depending on the specific use and what part of the face is being treated. In some cases the less thick version is better.

Stated : Stated simply, juvederm ultra plus is a more crosslinked and sturdier version of juvederm ultra that is used for deeper lines and greater volume loss. Juvederm ultra is primarily used to fill more superficial lines and areas of mild volume loss. So really the best one is directly related to your personal needs. Be healthy and be well, james m.

Juvederm : Juvederm ultra is a hyaluronic acid that is used for volume enhancement. The ultra plus is a thicker, more concentrated form of the same material which lasts longer. The new juvederm xc has a local anesthetic in the syringe.

It depends on where: The different types of Juvederm vary in the thickness of the gel. Juvederm ultra is the finest of the 3 and is best used for lips and very superficial lines. Juvederm Ultra Plus is thicker and is used for deeper lines (like parenthesis lines around the mouth). Juvederm Voluma is the thickest gel in the family and is used to replace lost volume in the mid face, giving a lift to the cheek area.

Juvederm: Like perlane, (dermal fillers) Juvederm ultra plus is "thicker" and more effective for heavier lines and folds. Be sure to have your face evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
