The benefits of injectables and fillers have been making headlines for more than a decade, but the makers of these anti-aging products have more recently evolved them into targeted solutions for specific needs. Rather than a one-filler-fits-all-lines mentality, dermal filler brands like Juvéderm now offer solutions developed to match various areas of the face so that precisely the right consistency can be used to fill lines, add volume, plump lips, and more. As always, dermal fillers offer an immediate solution to the signs of aging and a perfect pick-me-up during the holiday season.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Vollure XC, Juvéderm Volbella, and Juvéderm Voluma are safe, effective fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your body and is responsible for lubrication. But each of these products boasts a special consistency and technology that makes it ideal for certain locations on the face or specific types of wrinkles. An expert injector will be able to recommend the right combination of Juvéderm fillers to meet your precise needs and aesthetic goals.
The original, the workhorse, the filler that has pulled millions of women back from worry that smiling may increase joy but will also etch deeper laugh lines, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC treats lines around the mouth and nose. It smooths the appearance of nasolabial folds and parentheses and can be used to fill in hollows below the eyes. This treatment lasts up to a year before a touchup is needed. The new Vollure XC treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and has been proven to last up to 18 months!
When it comes to the kisser, Volbella will have you ready to pucker up with or without mistletoe in time for the holiday season. Juvéderm developed Volbella to have a thinner consistency than its other fillers, and that makes it ideal for creating a subtly full mouth, softening lines around the lips, and creating an even lip line. This product fills lines without making them appear larger, a perfect solution for the gentle lip area. Thanks to Juvéderm’s Vycross technology, Volbella can last up to a year before you need a touchup.
Like other Juvéderm products, Voluma is a hyaluronic acid gel filler, but it was developed as a volumizer – hence the name. It’s job is to plump from deep below the skin’s surface to restore facial volume. You might not realize that the tired look of getting older is actually caused by lost volume through the cheeks. Voluma has a thicker consistency, and it is injected deeper so that it lifts from below to fill the cheek area and raise the face. What’s more, the effects of Voluma can last as long as two years!
In the hands of an expert injector with significant experience providing dermal filler treatments, Juvéderm products offer long-lasting, natural-looking results. Used in just the right combination to meet your individual needs, these fillers will quickly have you ready to face the holiday season and the New Year in style.
