If you would like fewer wrinkles, fuller cheeks, or plumper lips, the Juvederm fillers by Allergan Inc. have you covered. When it comes to facial rejuvenation, Juvederm fillers are the top choice because they are safe and effective, and deliver stunning results. But what’s the difference between the Juvederm fillers.
Why use Juvederm
Dermal fillers like Juvederm are an excellent choice for men and women looking for a non-surgical facial rejuvenation option. Juvederm fillers can be used to address many of the facial changes that occur over time.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a collection of FDA approved dermal fillers that are designed to take care of the various facial rejuvenation needs of patients. The range of products available allow patients to create their own look with Juvederm.
Juvederm fillers are formulated using hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance that is naturally found within the skin and connective tissues throughout the body, and helps keep the skin healthy and supple. The HA used to formulate Juvederm is similar to the HA found in the skin.
When HA fillers are injected beneath the skin HA molecules attract and retain water. This helps to plump the skin and fill in moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds. Juvederm can also add definition and volumize facial contours.
For best results, Juvederm treatment should be customized to fit the specific facial rejuvenation needs of each patient (read more related articles).
What’s the difference between Juvederm Fillers?
Since the release of the original Juvederm formulation which included Juvederm XC and Juvederm Ultra, other Juvederm fillers such as Juvederm Vollure and Juvederm Voluma have hit the market. Let’s take a closer look at how these fillers differ.
Smooth moderate-to-severe wrinkles with Juvederm XC. Juvederm XC is especially beneficial for smoothing wrinkles around the nose and mouth, i.e. nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
The results of Juvederm XC last for approximately 1 year.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Plump thinning lips with Juvederm Ultra XC. Juvederm Ultra is primarily used to augment thinning lips, and to reduce the appearance of vertical lines around the mouth.
The results of Juvederm Ultra XC can last for up to 1 year.
Juvederm Vollure XC and Juvederm Voluma are among the next-generation dermal fillers by Allergan. They are both formulated using the same process, which is the proprietary Vycross technology. Vycross technology involves the use of HA molecules of different molecular weights. This blend gives the fillers a smoother consistency and increases longevity.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Correct moderate-to-severe wrinkles with Juvederm Vollure. Juvederm Vollure XC is ideally suited for softening nasolabial folds or ‘smile lines.’ These are the lines that run from either side of the nose down to the corners of the mouth.
Juvederm Vollure is softer and more moldable than Juvederm Plus and Juvederm Plus Ultra. Vollure has a medium consistency, which allows it to blend in easily with surrounding tissues, and makes it an effective treatment for deep lines and folds.
Treatment with Juvederm Vollure is not painful, but patients can expect to experience some soreness, bruising, and redness after treatment. Juvederm Vollure is approved for men and women 21 years of age and older, and lasts for up to 18 months.
Replenish facial volume with Juvederm Voluma. Wrinkles and fine lines aren’t the only facial changes that can make you look older, volume loss is also a factor in facial aging. Facial face provides the cushion the face need to maintain a youthful appearance. Loss of volume causes the cheeks to look sunken and contributes to hollowness beneath the eyes, making the face appear drawn and gaunt.
Juvederm Voluma is specially formulated to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks and midface. It provides an instant lift to hollow areas, and improves facial contours
The effects of Voluma last up to 2 years.
When choosing between the various Juvederm products patients should consider their needs and their aesthetic goals.
