A well accepted approach to facial aging today, injectable fillers come in many different forms and there are many brands to choose from. Because each individual filler has its unique strengths and characteristics, Dr. Herte’s extensive experience with all of the semi-permanent fillers can be invaluable in helping you choose your best filler for your individual needs and specific problem areas.
Juvederm Ultra® is a soft and smooth clear gel made up of Hyaluronic Acid (a naturally occurring substance found in our skin). Juvederm Ultra Plus® is a slightly more firm Hyaluronic Acid product from the same family of fillers. The FDA has approved these fillers for deep folds and wrinkles. The most common use of these fillers is for filling and softening the naso-labial folds (the fold from nose to mouth), however, Juvederm® products are also an excellent choice for many other “off-label” uses.
Dr. Herte feels that Juvederm Ultra® is the most soft and natural feeling Hyaluronic Acid filler and it is her first choice for lip enhancement. Either Juvederm Ultra® or Juvederm Ultra Plus® can also achieve excellent correction in facial folds (marionette and naso-labial folds) or deep wrinkles.
Benefits of Juvederm Ultra® include immediate results, soft and natural feel, rapid recovery, less bruising and swelling than Radiesse®, ability to adjust your correction with a readily available dissolving enzyme, and use of a very small needle for injection.
In less active areas of the face, correction with Juvederm Ultra® products can last 6-9 months. When used in the lips, Dr. Herte recommends touch up re-treatment at 4 months and then after another 6 months to maximize the result. Frequently, longer intervals between treatments will be possible if full correction is obtained.

For Your Safety:
Dr. Herte uses only genuine brand name aesthetic injectables, FDA approved for use in the United States, and purchased directly through the manufacturer.
The Herte Center for Cosmetic Surgery adheres to the strict Nevada Department of Health safety guidelines for single use vials and safe injection practice. For your safety, Dr. Herte does not allow vial sharing: each “single use” vial is used only for a single patient treatment.
FDA approved injectables may be used on a case by case basis for treatment for conditions that have not been approved during the FDA approval process. Dr. Herte may recommend such “off-label” treatment to a specific patient based on evaluation of the individual situation but discussion of such treatment should not be considered promotion of off-label procedures.
