How Long Does Juvederm Ultra Plus Last in Lips?

Restylane is the only FDA approved filler for the lips...

In my practice we’ve gotten away from using Juvederm Ultra Plus in the lips. It tends to have a higher incidence of clumping and other irregularities when used in the lips compared to a product such as Restylane. Restylane is now the only hyaluronic acid filler available which is FDA approved for use in the lips. 


Juvederm Ultra Plus in the lips

A lot longer than Ultra. In the lips Ultra Plus lasts 12 months or more. I have a patient whose lips are still augmented nicely after 2 years.

Juvederm Ultra Plus Duration....

It is FDA approved to last up to 12 months.  In my experience I see it range from 6 to 12 months.

Hope this helps.

Juvederm in the Lips

Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thick filler that normally is not used in the lips due to the likelihood of lumps. Restylane and Juvederm are better choices for placing filler in the lips. Restylane and Juvederm usually last anywhere from 6-9 months in the lips.

6-9 months or so

Juvederm lasts 6-9 months when used for lip enhancement, although it can be metabolized faster by some patients. It can also last longer!

Jeuvederm Lip Augmentation

The length of time that Jeuvederm lasts depends on a number of factors such as location it is placed, the technique, type of Jeuvederm (e.g. Jeuvederm vs Jeuvederm Plus vs Jeuvederm Ultra) and other factors such as underlying medical conditions. For example when placed in muscle for lip augmentation (an off label FDA usage) it does not last as long perhaps 6-8 months. In the cheeks it usually lasts for 6-12 months

How Long Does Juvederm Ultra Plus Last in Lips?

  This filler is a bit thick and not recommended for Lip Augmentation.  Using Juvederm or Restylane is fine in the lips and will last about 9 months.  If you want a longer lasting Lip Augmentation, consider Alloderm Lip Implants that last about 7 years providing soft, supple lips.  Be sure the MD you choose for Lip Augmentation understands and follows the proper aesthetics of facial (and lip) beauty for the creation of  balanced, properly-proportioned, beautiful lips.

Juvederm Ultra Plus

I agree that it does vary from patient to patient. In my experience with patients Juvederm Ultra Plus usually lasts anywhere from 9 months to a year and that also depends on how much you inject into that location.
