Juvederm Fillers: What Do They Work Best For?
Table of Contents
As we age, the fibroblasts within the skin stop producing much of the skin’s natural Elastin, Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid. This happens as early as 25 years old – a shocking and scary fact! But, don’t fear, skin fillers such as Juvederm, top up the body with some of these natural proteins by waking up the fibroblasts and encouraging increased production of the skin’s natural moisturisers.
The use of Hyaluronic Acid in Juvederm acts as a plumping and firming agent, helping turn back the time on the skin by creating a youthful appearance. Also, the skin’s health and appearance are improved from the lasting moisturisation and improvements on the skin’s surface.
The Juvederm’s range of Skin Boosters that we use here at Aesthetics of Liverpool is one of only two stabilised Hyaluronic Acid versions for skin revitalisation; the stabilisation is necessary for ensuring long-term results. Also, Juvederm uses Hyaluronic Acid, which is naturally found within the body, making it a safe, reliable treatment for plumping the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles to maintain or gain a youthful glow.
Even better, Juvederm is safe for people of all complexions, while other hyaluronic acid-based fillers are not ideal for those with darker skin. This makes it a perfect treatment for everyone, no matter their skin tone or aesthetic needs.
Please keep reading to learn more about the Juvederm fillers that we use here at Aesthetics of Liverpool to find out what they work best for; starting with Juvederm Volux as it is our newest edition to our dermal fillers family.
Some people’s natural face shape is very full, plump and structured, whereas other face shapes can look a little sunken or round; this isn’t always appealing, so Juvederm has created a filler that’s prime use is for treating the face’s frame.
Juvederm Volux is a brand new filler that has been designed to add volume to the chin and jawline. With its specially-formulated gel consistency, it is able to plump these structural areas of the face to give definition and a healthy/youthful looking aesthetic. This facial filler is able to keep its results in place for anywhere between 18 and 24 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
As we age, we lose volume in our cheeks, causing them to flatten and sag. Many of us accept this natural ageing, but others want to retain their youthful looks for longer. Juvederm Voluma XC is designed to add volume to the cheeks, as well as lift and contour the area.
Age-related midface volume loss can be a cause of concern for ageing men and women. Rather than having your confidence knocked, you can turn back time with Juvederm Voluma XC while it adds volume beneath the skin’s surface- lasting for up to two years.
Not only does Juvederm Voluma XC add volume, but it also temporarily reduces wrinkles and facial lines. Due to ageing, wrinkles and fine lines develop on the face, and nasolabial folds can become more visible. Juvederm Voluma XC adds volume to the facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance; it is the strongest gel, and is ideal for deep injection in the cheek area if it requires plumping and lifting.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
This next type of dermal filler is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds develop as we age. This includes the “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth, a very common condition. Juvederm Vollure XC is injected into these areas to temporarily correct facial wrinkles; creating a smoother appearance to the skin. In a clinical study, it was shown that this filler lasts for up to 18 months with optimal treatment.
Juvederm Vollure XC is situated between Voluma XC and Volbella XC; with its balanced durability and spreadability that treats nasolabial folds while still allowing natural facial movements and expressions.
This type of filler is also a great choice for people wanting to reduce the appearance of their fine lines and wrinkles. It was first approved by the FDA in 2006 and has been a popular filler ever since. Juvederm XC reduces wrinkles and folds, such as the “smile lines” around the nose and mouth. To laugh and smile in life is natural, but over time permanent lines are left in the wake of these expressions.
Juvederm XC is injected into these areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin, leaving a smooth surface. Juvederm XC lasts up to one year with optimal treatment.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
It’s not just our skin and cheeks which Juvederm can treat; Juvederm Ultra XC is perfect for those who want to plumpen the appearance of their lips. The injectable gel plumps the area, whether your lips have thinned over time due to ageing or you just want to add that extra fullness. Juvederm Ultra XC can also be used to smooth and correct moderate to severe lines around the mouth.
With its double-action power for plumping lips and smoothing wrinkles, this filler is ideal for people who want to target more areas on their face; such as enhancing their lips and reducing the appearance of their “smile lines” in one treatment. Juvederm Ultra XC also lasts up to one year with optimal treatment.
There are many similarities between Juvederm XC and Juvederm Ultra XC, but some differences, too. Cross-linking within the filler gives the patient stability, and Juvederm XC has a lot more cross-linking in the formula than the Ultra XC version. Juvederm XC is thicker and more stable than Ultra XC as it’s injected into higher areas, but the Ultra XC version has more filling ability and is injected deeper into the skin.
Juvederm Volbella is another version that is perfect for those who want to target the appearance of their lips. It is injected into the lips during lip augmentation, and it can even correct the personal lines that are often called “lipstick lines”.
The crystal clear gel is injected directly into and around the lips using a super-fine needle. The gel both plumps the lips and shapes them, as well as reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth. Juvederm Volbella lasts up to one year with optimal treatment, too.
Volbella contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel out of Voluma XC, Volbella and Vollure XC. It is ideal for filling fine lip lines or even smoothing the delicate area under the eyes.
