Juvederm Ultra is to Restylane what Juvederm Ultra Plus is to Perlane

+1

Juvederm Ultra, Restylane, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Perlane are all hyaluronic acid fillers with different consistencies and abilities to retain water. They are all temporary fillers that last up to a year and yet are dissoluble with Hyaluronidase, a natural enzyme which breaks up hyaluronic acid. Juvederm is produced by Allergan, the producer of Botox, while Restylane and Perlane are produced by Q-Med in Sweden and are distributed in the US by Medicis.

Juvederm Ultra and Perlane produce a softer fill which is best reserved for the lip and the superficial skin while the ultra plus and Perlane are best used in the deeper skin only.

Juvederm Ultra is to Restylane what Juvederm Ultra Plus is to Perlane.

Juvederm Ultra Plus is used for deeper filling

+1

As the other physicians answered, the products differ in their density/concentration.  Juvederm Ultra Plus is best used for deeper areas such as deep nasolabial folds, deep marionette lines, cheek plumping, etc.  Juvederm Ultra is best used for more superficial lines, in these same areas plus lip lines, cheek lines and also for lip augmentation.  Juvederm Ultra Plus can also be used for lip augmentation but should only be used by a very experienced injector in this area.

Juvederm ultra and ultra plus

+1

Juvederm Ultra is a smaller particle size hyaluronic acid than Ultra plus. Ultra plus tends to last a bit longer maybe 9-12 months.  They are both pretty soft but I would use a smaller particle product around the eyes.

Ultra vs Ultra Plus - which is Softer?

+1

Ultra plus is a thicker material then the Ultra, so it is a little firmer and is designed for deeper injections.  The Ultra is a smoother, softer product that does well for the lips, nasolabial folds that are not too severe, and finer wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, etc.

As the previous posters have stated the depth on the injection determines which type of Juvederm is used. Also be aware there is a price difference.

Juvederm Ultra-plus is meant to be injected into deeper tissue planes than Juvederm Ultra. Juvederm Ultraplus may provide a stiffer feel than Juverm Ultra but depending on your tissue volume needs you may be a candidate for.both.
