Juvéderm® Turns Up the Volume with Four Options
- Posted on: Nov 15 2017
While wrinkles are a common focus of facial aging, volume loss is probably more evident. If you wonder about this little revelation, take a look at photos of your parents at age 30 and age 60. While you may see some wrinkles, you probably really notice the sunken cheeks, drooping around the mouth, thinning lips, and other signs of volume loss.
Between the ever-decreasing production of collagen (the skin’s structural support protein) and the ceaseless tug of gravity, it seems everything is going south.
Dr. Lipton uses the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers to replace some of that lost volume.
What is Juvéderm®?
If you’re checking out Dr. Lipton’s blog, you’ve surely heard of hyaluronic acid. It is a naturally occurring substance in the bodies of humans (and most other mammals) that is responsible for binding with water molecules under the skin to hydrate, plump, and firm the skin.
All the Juvéderm® fillers are hyaluronic acid based. For this reason, Juvéderm® is classified as a naturally derived filler, versus other “synthetic” fillers like Radiesse.
What do the different Juvéderm® fillers address?
- Juvéderm® XC
When you’re making an aside in your writing parentheses, come in handy, but on your face, they are not welcome. These are the creases that form at the sides of your mouth and resemble parentheses. Juvéderm® XC fills out these and smile lines, the lines that run from the nose down to the corners of the mouth. You hear about all sorts of “anti-aging” serums and creams, but they only moisturize the skin’s surface. Juvéderm® XC adds volume beneath the skin to smooth these lines and folds.
- Juvéderm® Voluma XC
Doctors may call it “age-related midface volume loss;” you call it sagging cheeks. Over time as you lose the collagen to support your skin and as your underlying muscles weaken, your cheeks flatten. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. Plump cheeks are considered to be a tenet of a younger look.
- Juvéderm®Ultra XC
You may not think about your lips with facial aging, but our lips lose volume just like everywhere else. They become thinner as we get older. Plus, some women just have thin lips. Juvéderm® Ultra XC is designed to plump thin lips.
- Juvéderm®Volbella XC
This addition to the Juvederm family is relatively new, coming on the market in the summer of 2016. Whereas Ultra XC adds fullness and plumps thin lips, Volbella XC is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
How long does Juvéderm® last?
All four Juvéderm® formulations are long-lasting. Plus, future injections usually need less product to achieve the same results.
- Juvéderm®Voluma XC provides the longest-lasting hyaluronic acid filler results, restoring cheek volume for up to two years.
- Juvéderm®XC treats the wrinkles and lines around your mouth for up to one year.
- Juvéderm®Ultra XC plumps the lips for up to one year, with 78 percent of people treated expressing satisfaction with their lips after one year.
- Juvéderm®Volbella XC adds subtle volume for one year, with 80 percent of people treated reporting improved satisfaction with their lips one year after treatment.
