Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® represent a great option for you to add more volume to your face. They can be used for your lips, your cheeks, your jawline, and other areas of your body that you believe need a little bit of “oomph.”
One thing to note is that JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers come in different formulas, each specific for a different problem. So, which one should you choose, based on your needs? Let’s discuss the different formulas, so that you know exactly what to expect.
What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler that consists of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is meant to add more volume to areas with wrinkles or hollowed skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body, keeping your skin plump, firm, and youthful. However, as you age, your skin is no longer able to produce as much hyaluronic acid.
JUVÉDERM® aims to replenish your HA content, restoring the facial contour and improving aging signs. The substance injected in the problem area will not only add more volume but will also trigger natural collagen production. The effects can last for up to 18 months, but we recommend you go for yearly touch-ups to maintain your look.
Different JUVÉDERM® Alternatives
JUVÉDERM® comes in different formulas, usually used on the mid and lower areas of your face. The formulas can be found in simple and “XC” versions (common option), the latter meaning that it includes lidocaine so that you do not experience pain or discomfort during the procedure.
So, after a consultation at SoCal Cool Body, we may recommend the following JUVÉDERM® formulas:
1. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC
If you want to correct vertical lip lines and add subtle volume to your lips, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC is a great option. It is popular among those women and men who are noticing early-onset signs of aging. Featuring the thinnest formula of JUVÉDERM®, it does a better job at treating fine lines than deep wrinkles. However, this exact formula makes it the perfect choice for filling your under-eye area.
2. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is usually the best option when you want to treat marionette lines (i.e., the lines on the side of your mouth and nose). It has a medium consistency, something between VOLBELLA® and VOLUMA™. It’s thick enough to enter your deeper folds and fix them, but it’s soft enough to allow comfortable facial movement. The results of this treatment may last for up to 18 months.
3. JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC
If you are looking for a JUVÉDERM® lip treatment, then JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC can be a suitable solution for your needs. It can be used no matter if you lose volume to aging, or simply dream of bigger lips. Aside from its popular lip filler purpose, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC may also be used for treating cheek wrinkles or creases around your mouth.
4. JUVEDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC
When JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC is not enough for you, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA PLUS XC can offer more dramatic results. ULTRA PLUS XC has a thicker formula compared to the regular ULTRA XC, making it good for deeper wrinkles or heavily sunken skin. Moreover, if you want those big lips often sported by celebrities on TV, ULTRA PLUS can offer more dramatic results. Being the thickest formula of them all, it is your “go big or go home” option.
5. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is mostly used for cheek augmentation. After a certain age, you may lose volume in your cheeks, which gives you that hollow look in your eyes. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC can refill and plump those hollows, making you look radiant and healthy. Through its action, it can contour and lift your sunken cheeks, an effect that can last for up to two years.
