Currently there are two types of Juvederm. Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus. The difference is in the viscosity. Ultra Plus is better for when more volume is necessary, which typically (but not always) is seen in an older face. Soon, Juvederm is coming out with local anesthetic added to it, to cut down on the stinging sensation that is sometimes accompanied by the injections.
None of the above is not intended as medical advice. If you have a medical concern, please consult your doctor.

Yes. There are 2 forms.
Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Basically, the Juvederm Ultra is smaller and is used for finer lines. The Ultraplus has larger molecules and is used to correct deeper lines. You can combine them if you want to correct a deep crease and want to have a smoother appearance. Also, the Juvederm Ultra Plus is slightly more expensive. We charge $50 extra.

There are 2 forms of Juvederm. It comes as Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm UltraPlus. The Ultra is thinner and for finer lines such as mild nasolabial lines (lines from the nose to the lips), lip lines and the frown crease.. The UltraPlus goes into deeper creases such as deep nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth).
