Dermal filler Juvederm ULTRA 2 is used for enhancement of the lips and for filling in fine-to-moderate lines. One of the keys to positive results when using a dermal filler is a lack of noticeable demarcations between treated and untreated areas. Juvederm ULTRA 2 has a smooth consistency which ensures seamless transitions. Created using Hylacross technology, the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm ULTRA 2 is highly crosslinked to ensure particles that are stable and long-lasting.
