Ultra 2 is the lightest filler in the classic Juvederm brand line, produced by the pharmaceutical company Allergan. The company produces the gels in France, but the head office is located in the USA. Transparent homogeneous biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic acid is designed to operate mainly in the areas with thin and delicate skin - around the eyes and mouth, as well as in the forehead area. This corrector is designed to correct imperfections in areas with thin skin, as well as in the area of dynamic tension (forehead, neck). The second task of Juvederm Ultra 2 injections is to fight sagging and fine wrinkles. Due to the presence of lidocaine, there is no need to apply an anesthetic cream on the skin before the procedure (only in case of hypersensitivity to pain).
Main characteristics Juvederm Ultra 2
The active component of the injection preparation Juvederm Ultra 2 is the "gold standard" of contour plastics - hyaluronic acid at a concentration of 24 mg/ml. Sodium hyaluronate attracts water (1 molecule of HA - 500 molecules of H2O), and due to this there is a filling of wrinkles, further the result is maintained due to the growth of its own activated collagen and elastin fibers.
The monophasic filler contains molecules of the same size, so it is easily injected and evenly distributed in the dermis, without lumps, providing a quick and natural result. In the production process, the patented technology 3D-Matrix is used, the essence of which is the formation of strong transverse bonds between the chains of hyaluronic acid, contributing to the stability of the substance against the action of the destructive enzyme hyaluronidase. The high degree of purification of hyaluronic acid makes the product hypoallergenic and well compatible with dermal tissues.
In addition to hyaluronic acid, the correction gel contains:
- lidocaine (0.3%), which minimizes discomfort during the procedure, providing a relaxed facial expression and precise correction;
- phosphate buffer with a pH of 7.2, the effect of which is aimed at reducing the appearance of swellings and bruises, at early recovery of the epidermis.
