Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure – Which one is right for me?
Juvederm is the most popular & effective non-surgical cosmetic treatment for nasolabial folds, smile lines and lip enhancement.
What is Juvederm?
It is a precision-crafted smooth gel filler that is used to treat & eliminate wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and in any area of the face where the skin has lost volume. It cannot make you younger… but it can enhance your lips and eliminate wrinkles around your mouth & nose so that no one can guess your true age! It is specially manufactured to have a smooth and natural consistency. It also contains lidocaine topical anesthetic, which provides superior patient comfort during lip injections. It is recognized as a safer & superior alternative to costly lip implants.
It replaces the naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid (HA) that is depleted as the skin ages. Losing HA results in your skin losing its youthful volume, allowing wrinkles to appear. This lip plumper is a safe & effective replacement technique for HA loss.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
The most advanced form is Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. It contains Lidocaine for more patient comfort, just like the Juvederm Ultra XC. Like the lidocaine-free Juvederm Ultra Plus, it’s made of a thicker, more viscous formula than Juvederm Ultra. With a higher concentration of cross-linking, it provides longer-lasting results. Other products are injected mid-dermis, but Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is injected deeper into skin layers for more volume. It fills severe smile lines, wrinkles and marionette lines. It’s used to add significant volume to thin lips and can reduce or eliminate nasolabial folds around the mouth. It’s advanced formula makes it a good choice for facial shaping because it can streamline the jowls and chin for a sleeker, smoother profile. Most patients need just one treatment to achieve full smoothing and line reduction. The amount needed for each patient varies. Results last an average of 12 months. In a clinical study, 78% of patients who returned to their provider over a year after their first treatment still showed improvement.
Juvederm Volbella XC
Juvederm Volbella XC is an FDA-approved filler that is used to add volume to naturally thin lips, as well as to smoothen out vertical lip lines to create a more defined, youthful look. Made from hyaluronic acid, this lip filler adds volumes to the lips in a more subtle manner, giving your lips a more natural smooth and voluminous look.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Weight changes, sun exposure, repetitive facial movements, and the pull of gravity can all play a role in the aging process, accelerating the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Vollure XC is the first long-lasting dermal filler approved by the FDA for the smoothening of parentheses lines that extend in the shape of parentheses from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Unlike other dermal fillers, Juvederm Vollure XC produces more subtle but long-lasting results and is therefore the perfect choice for individuals who desire natural results.
Restylane is a clear, lightweight gel made of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that your skin produces to stay hydrated. High levels of hyaluronic acid keep your skin youthfully lush, smooth, and resilient. Unfortunately, your skin makes less and less of it over time. That’s why your skin starts becoming thinner, drier, and more wrinkle-prone with age.
Restylane injections rejuvenate your face by replenishing some of that lost hydration. With a few tiny injections, the added hyaluronic acid will attract water molecules to the lower layers of your skin, plumping it up. Your skin will instantly look smoother, fuller, and youthfully revitalized.
One of the most amazing things about Restylane is how safe and simple it is for your skin. Since your body naturally makes hyaluronic acid, it’s a low-impact treatment that’ll give you truly beautiful results. Our expert providers use precision techniques to delicately contour, lift, and smooth your skin without invasive surgical procedures. Results include an effortlessly refreshed and natural look.
Another benefit of Restylane is that it’s reversible, which offers peace of mind. Although your body will eventually break it down naturally, if you want to make it go away, one quick enzyme injection will dissolve it.
Restylane injections are a quick, easy procedure with virtually no effect on your daily routine afterward. The appointment usually lasts about an hour and this includes a 20 minute consultation.
The treatment is effective right away. Unlike other types of cosmetic procedures, you don’t have to wait several days to get results. There may however be swelling and bruising in more sensitive areas for up to 4 days. Restylane lips in particular can become a little puffy, and it might take a few days before desired look is obtained
