- What does JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus treat?

JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XL, like all dermal fillers, is not a permanent solution, but the effects could last for up to 6 to 12 months. At that point, your body absorbs the filler material and you will need additional treatments if you want to maintain your results.
- How do I find the best plastic surgeon for JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XL treatments near me?
When looking for a dermal filler provider, look for a place that is clean, certified, and has experience addressing your skin concerns. Dr. Stephen Small is a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands what filler is best and is expert in facial anatomy and cosmetic procedures. Why trust your face to anyone other than a board-certified plastic surgeon?

- How long is recovery after JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XL treatments?
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XL treatments have no downtime. Swelling can be more pronounced in the first couple of days but treatment swelling subsides in about a week. In addition, you may need to go makeup-free for a day. Dr. Small will give you specific aftercare instructions.
