Which Juvéderm® Filler is Right for Me?
Dermal fillers, such as the Juvéderm® line, have become the second most popular cosmetic enhancement procedure in the country, behind only Botox®, and there’s a good reason. “Dermal fillers take years off your age with a few precisely placed injections, zero downtime, and instant results, and can revitalize and renew your face with natural, beautiful results,” states Dr. Kimberly Finder, a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic expert at Sanova Dermatology in San Antonio, Texas.
How Do Juvéderm® Fillers Work?
Made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, Juvéderm® fillers are precisely engineered to treat a variety of facial cosmetic concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, severe facial folds, volume loss, facial structure, and thin lips. We naturally produce HA for hydration and nutrition of our skin, but over time, that supply is depleted, drying out our skin and resulting in volume loss and wrinkles that prematurely age us. “Juvéderm® rectifies this by filling in these lines, wrinkles, and folds, and restoring volume loss in cheeks and lips,” says Dr. Finder. “HA renews hydration inside out, leaving your skin supple, youthful, and glowing for up to 18 months, depending on your chosen formula,” she continues. But which product is right for you?
The Juvéderm® Line
Across the Sanova Dermatology locations, we offer a variety of dermal filler options to best serve our patients and treat a variety of aging concerns.
- Juvéderm® Volbella XC takes aim at tiny flaws in delicate areas around the mouth and eyes. This lighter gel is ideal for subtle, precise correction and understated lip enhancement for a natural, beautiful result every time.
- Juvéderm® Vollure XC is a step above Volbella, correcting moderate flaws and volume loss. The patented Vycross® linking manufacturing process is different than Ultra Plus because different weights of HA molecules are linked. This gives the gel a medium consistency for the perfect spreadability and durability for treating moderate lines and wrinkles.
- Juvéderm® Ultra and Ultra Plus are thicker more ideal for moderate to severe facial folds.
- Juvéderm® Voluma XC has volume covered. Designed for the cheek area, Voluma XC retains its shape with a thicker consistency, perfect for restoring lost cheek volume and plumpness to recapture youthful facial contours.
Am I a Good Candidate?
“Because HA molecules naturally occur in the body, most patients tolerate the injections very well,” states Dr. Finder. “Lidocaine is infused in all Juvéderm® fillers, making the injections as painless as possible,” she emphasizes.
Which Juvéderm® Product is Best for Me?
Knowing the nuanced differences between the Juvéderm® fillers is nice, but it’s more important to know what to look for in a dermal filler provider. You want someone with medical certification, in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, a critically aesthetic eye, and experience administering dermal fillers using training techniques specifically designed for facial enhancement and restoring lost volume. Dr. Kimberly Finder is board certified and has mastered the art of dermal filler enhancements, and the providers at Sanova Dermatology are extremely knowledgeable in which are the best Juvéderm® fillers for specific cosmetic concerns. We can assess your skin type, goals, and natural expressions, and anatomy to determine the safest, most effective placement of fillers for a beautiful outcome.
“I have always had very small thin lips growing up therefore once I turned 18 I got Juvederm injections. However, my past doctor that injected my lips (not going to name any names) completely botched my upper lip. I had lumps in the inside of my lip that stayed there for two years giving my upper lip a weird deform look. I felt hopeless and super insecure. However, I found out about Dr. Finder over the internet due to all her positive reviews. I set up an appointment to see if she could help me with these lumps. And let me tell you she’s a gift from God herself and her staff are very professional and helped me reach my goal in completely eliminating those lumps due to my past doctor who didn’t inject me correctly. Dr. Finder as well recently just injected my lips with Juvederm Volbella and they are PERFECT!!!! They are exactly what I wanted and very natural looking! I honestly couldn’t be any happier. I’m not planning on going to any other doctor after this experience because Dr. Finder works magic and she’s truly amazing.” – MT, A Happy Patient of Dr. Kimberly Finder
