Juvéderm® ULTRA contains non-animal hyaluronic acid with the addition of 0.3% lidocaine, local anaesthetic to provide more comfort both during and after injection.
However, in the case of lip augmentation it may still be recommended that you have a topical anaesthetic or dental nerve block in order to ensure a pain free treatment of this sensitive area.
According to data from the manufacturer concerning the preliminary results from a study on 60 women, which compared the injection comfort of Juvéderm® ULTRA 3 and Surgiderm 30 XP, 81% who received Juvéderm® ULTRA felt only slight or no discomfort at all.(1)
