Juvéderm® Plus / Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
Juvéderm® injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule. Its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. As you age, the amount of HA reduces in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds. Using a fine needle, Juvéderm® XC under the skin fills the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly. Longevity varies depending on the area injected. Juvéderm® XC uses a manufacturing process called HYLACROSS technology. HYLACROSS gives Juvéderm® XC its special smooth-gel structure that holds up over time.
Some patients need additional volume in their cheeks for lifting. Juvéderm® Voluma XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour. Juvéderm® Voluma satisfies a need for volumizing the cheeks to restore support for the lower face in addition to the upper face. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
VOLBELLA® XC is a soft, smooth gel appropriate for adding subtle volume to the lips and softening the appearance of perioral lines. Volbella® is new for 2017 and from the Juvéderm® family. Volbella® is considered a more subtle filler, special for the lips. It is formulated with Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS® technology, and gives a smooth finish.
Juvéderm VOLLURE™ XC is new for 2017 and proven to improve deep wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. It is formulated with Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS® technology, which blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, contributing to the gel’s duration of up to 18 months. Juvéderm VOLLURE XC™ is specifically tailored with a balance of gel firmness and low cohesivity, yielding a versatile formulation that adds subtle volume for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
