Juvederm for Marionette Lines

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler and a good treatment for marionette lines. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the skin, meaning Juvederm does not cause allergic reactions. The injectable filler is available as Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus, both which are of medium stiffness.

Juvederm Ultra Plus is thicker, making it better suited for deeper marionette lines and a bit longer lasting. In 2010, Allergan, the manufacturer of Juvederm, introduced Juvederm XC in the United States, which contains the painkiller lidocaine.

Juvederm Ultra lasts six to nine months in the body while Juvederm Ultra Plus lasts nine months to a year. The gel is then reabsorbed into the body and must be reapplied. Price ranges from $400 to $900 for one syringe. Two syringes may be required for deep marionette lines.
