Which JUVÉDERM® Formula Is Right for Me?
If you have noticed that your face is starting to show signs of aging and want to do something about it, you have likely heard of dermal fillers. These injectable treatments can help restore your youthful appearance quickly and easily, and without the need for surgery. However, there are many options available, and it can be challenging to figure out which one is best for you.
What Is JUVÉDERM®?
The JUVÉDERM® family of products consists of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. HA is a sugar created by the body that helps keep tissues hydrated. There are many HA fillers on the market, but JUVÉDERM® is one of the most popular brands. They have created several different formulas, and each one is designed to treat specific aesthetic concerns or regions of the face. Here at The Medical Skin Clinic, we offer three different formulations:
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
- JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
The original formulation of this brand of fillers is used to treat moderate to deep folds in the midface, such as nasolabial folds or deep smile lines (parentheses). The gel is thicker than other formulas, and so provides stable volume and temporarily smoothes the skin. Your results can last as long as one year.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
This product is used to correct cheeks that have begun to lose volume with age, making them look gaunt. It contains lidocaine for comfort during injection. The product is injected deep into the facial tissues to restore volume and smooth deep folds in the midface. Results last for up to two years.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is also used to address lines and folds in the midface. Smile lines, nasolabial folds, and other wrinkles can all be smoothed with this formulation, which also contains lidocaine for your comfort. Results of treatment can last up to 18 months.
Injectable dermal fillers are an excellent option for those who are interested in minimally invasive ways to improve their facial appearance. Treatment time is quick, and there is little to no downtime involved. Most patients return to regular activities the next day. While you may notice some swelling, hardness, or redness around the injection sites, these symptoms should resolve within a few days.
Complete Facial Rejuvenation
Most people have aesthetic concerns in several regions of their face. JUVÉDERM® can be used in conjunction with each other or other cosmetic treatments for a tailored rejuvenation if the entire face.
