As we age, our skin gradually loses its elasticity, hydration, and volume, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. While some people may embrace their aging skin as a sign of wisdom and experience, others may prefer to maintain a youthful and radiant appearance. Fortunately, various cosmetic procedures and products can help address these concerns, including Juvederm fillers.
Juvederm is a brand of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers designed to add volume, contour, and lift to different face areas. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps hydrate and cushion the skin. By injecting Juvederm fillers into specific locations, a skilled healthcare professional can create a more youthful and rejuvenated look that can last for several months to a year or more, depending on the type of filler and the individual’s metabolism.
Several types of Juvederm fillers are specifically formulated to target different areas and concerns of the face. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular types and their uses.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC is a volumizing filler designed to add volume and contour to the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. As we age, the fat pads in our faces can shift downward, creating hollows and a sunken appearance. Juvederm Voluma XC can help restore the fullness and definition of these areas, providing a more youthful and lifted look. This filler is FDA-approved to last up to two years, making it a popular choice for those who want long-lasting results.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Juvederm Vollure XC is a versatile filler that can address moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in different face areas, including the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin). This filler is designed to provide a natural-looking result that allows for facial expressions and movement. Juvederm Vollure XC can last up to 18 months.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Juvederm Ultra XC is a flexible filler that can be used to plump and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the lips, mouth, and nose. This filler can also add volume to the lips, creating a fuller and more defined pout. Juvederm Ultra XC contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to help minimize any discomfort during the injection process. This filler can last up to one year.
Juvederm Volbella XC
Juvederm Volbella XC is a filler specifically designed for the lips and the area around the mouth. This filler can enhance lip volume, shape, and symmetry and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Juvederm Volbella XC is formulated with Vycross technology, which provides a smooth and natural-looking result. This filler can last up to one year.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a robust filler designed to address more severe wrinkles and folds and add volume to the cheeks and chin. This filler is also suitable for individuals with thicker skin and deeper wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC contains lidocaine to help reduce discomfort during the injection process. This filler can last up to one year.
It’s essential to note that while Juvederm fillers are safe and effective when performed by a trained and experienced healthcare professional, there are potential risks and side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and infection.
