One among the common term that you hear a lot in face enhancement/treatment is Hyaluronic acid. These are soft tissue fillers that are used for a variety of cosmetic applications, especially for reducing wrinkles and sculpting specific parts of the face.
One of the important factors that many do not know about hyaluronic acid is that there is not a “one type fits all” kind of treatment. Their effectiveness and area of application changes with the specification of the acid. People tend to not inquire when it comes to Hyaluronic Acid treatment and this can result in unwelcomed results.
JUVÉDERM makes some of the most trusted hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers on the market. In this article, we will introduce to the types of Hyaluronic Acid fillers from JUVÉDERM and where to use them.
The JUVÉDERM Ultra is one of the best fillers available on the market to keep your skin looking young and smooth. The product is commonly used to treat smile lines and marionette lines.
If you have mild lines on your face, most probably near the corners of your lips, we recommend that you opt for JUVÉDERM Ultra as it is effective at smoothening these lines. They are also effective against wrinkles. The best thing about JUVÉDERM hyaluronic acid based products is that the results are readily visible after treatment.
The effects of the product last 1 year, ensuring that you don’t have to get the treatment every now and then.
Other than lines and wrinkles, JUVÉDERM Ultra is also the prime choice for lip enhancement, mainly due to their soft form.
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC: The difference between JUVÉDERM Ultra and Ultra XC is that the latter comes with Lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that further reduces the pain during injection.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus
The JUVÉDERM Ultra plus form a thicker layer under the skin when compared with JUVÉDERM Ultra. This is due to the larger particles present in the solution. The thicker solution enables the product to treat severe cases of lines and wrinkles. Due to thicker appeal, they are used as a prime candidate for filling depressed cheeks, making them look fuller, giving structure to the face.
The JUVÉDERM Ultra plus can also result in fuller lips. Do not think that the thicker solution of JUVÉDERM makes it very firm after application. This thicker solution implies that the filler will retain more water in them, making them appear fuller. This is why they can be used on more areas of the face compared to the non-Ultra version.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC: The JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC comes with Lidocaine. It has anesthetic qualities that will make the whole procedure comparatively painless for the client.
The JUVÉDERM Vollure is a product that is aimed at increasing the volume under the area of application. By using JUVÉDERM Vollure, users can have lines and wrinkles on their skin reduced by a large margin. The Vollure is particularly effective at Glabella augmentation because of the Vycross technology used in its preparation. You may need more than one application of Vollure to get the desired effect. But after applying and sculpting it in the required manner, the results will be visible almost immediately and the effect will last for about 18 months.
The JUVÉDERM Vollure XC: The JUVÉDERM Vollure XC incorporates Lidocaine into the mix so that you might experience less pain during the injections.
Voluma and vollure may seem same in the sense that they both add volume under the skin however, they differ in the intensity. While Vollure is an all-purpose volume enhancer, the Voluma gives a more prominent effect on the skin, making it the prime choice for changing the and restructuring the contours on the face.
When we talk about the structure of Voluma, it is the thickest gel in the JUVÉDERM lineup. The application of Voluma is done a bit deeper into the skin. This enables Voluma to treat even severe wrinkles. Upon application, the gel gains volume and the aesthetician and sculpt the gel by multiple applications to get the desired effects.
Due to the strength of JUVÉDERM Voluma, it can last up to 2 years, which is touted to be the only filler to last that long after application. The product is FDA approved, giving the product credibility amongst its competition.
The JUVÉDERM Voluma is a great way to add volume and contour the cheek structure. In the process, the increased volume will smooth out lines and wrinkles in the area. Voluma is very effective in Jawline and Forehead shaping because of the same attributes.
The JUVÉDERM Voluma XC: The variant of Voluma containing Lidocaine to act as an anesthetic during the process.
The drawback of thick gels is that they are not easily malleable. This makes them very hard to recommend for delicate applications such the area under the eye. In those cases, you need a spreadable gel rather than a volumizing gel.
This is where Volbella comes in! Volbella is a thin gen that is spreadable. It is used for applications like filling fine lips, smoothening fine lines etc. Perioral lines or lipstick lines are also removed by Volbella treatment.
The JUVÉDERM Volbella XC: The JUVÉDERM Volbella XC is the same thin and spreadable gel, but comes with Lidocaine addition, an anesthetic, that reduces the pain during the process.
