What is Juvederm Ultra Smile?

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Juvederm for quite some time now. But lately I see people are referencing something called Juvederm Ultra Smile. Are they the same thing or two different products used for different purposes? Is one better than the other?

Thank you for sharing your question.  Juvederm Smile is not currently available in the US. There are other products that are used for the lips that are made by the same company (Allergan).  Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Volbella.  Both are suitable products for the lips.  There are other options as well for the lips that are made by another company (Restylane and Silk).  I have used all of these products for injections into the lip area on my patients with great results.  Please see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for injections into your lips.  I hope this information was helpful to you.

Best Wishes, Dr. B.

All the names of products can be very confusing because the companies tend to use versions of the same name for different products and for different countries. Juvederm, made by Allergan has versions in the US called, juvederm , juvederm ultra,juvederm voluma and most recently juvederm vobella.

Juvederm ultra smile is approved in Europe. It is specifically marketed for lip rejuvenation with slight enhancement, similar to a competitors product called restylane silk.

what product you need is dependent on what area is being treated and you desired results. I recommend a consultation with a Baord certified plastic surgeon so you can create a plan and budget using the best product treatment for your specific desired outcomes. 

Best of luck

A smile can be improved by using many different products so it is best discussed with your healthcare professional. Any of the hyaluronic acid products are used in the lips and the results are completely technique sensitive. Dentists are great injectors - they do it all day long and no one knows your smile better than your dentist.  I think it s best to check out the qualifications of any healthcare professional you choose in order to make the best determination.

Juvéderm® ULTRA Smile  is an advanced, cohesive, hyaluronic acid matrix dermal filler with local anaesthetic, manufactured by Allergan; the makers of Juvéderm® ULTRA PLUS  and Juvéderm® VOLUMA. Juvéderm® ULTRA has like the other fillers, hyaluronic acid, they all have different cross-linked formulations and for different indications. Juvéderm® ULTRA Smile it is specifically targeted for use in the lips and mouth area.
