Which Juvéderm® Filler is Right for Me?

Which Juvéderm® Filler is Right for Me?

JuvédermDermal 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, Juvederm 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

  • 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?

HA molecules naturally occur in the body, therefore most patients tolerate the injections very well. Lidocaine is infused in all Juvéderm® fillers, making the injections as painless as possible. You can consult experts like The Wellspring Medical Spa – Juvederm for additional guidance.

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.
