The Juvéderm collection

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance of the body that is found in the eyes and joints. It has grown in popularity in recent years as a cosmetic treatment, as cosmetic practitioners around the world are now seeing its importance in hydrating and filling out the complexion.

Throughout the aging process, the body’s natural production of HA slows down, making the skin susceptible to wrinkles, fine lines, and drooping. Injectable fillers such as Juvederm are formulated with biocompatible hyaluronic acid, giving it the ability to make the skin elastic, resilient, and brilliant without any recovery time or pain.

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is considered by many to be the top brand of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers available today. The Juvéderm collection consists of a family of products that achieve long-lasting results that look and feel remarkably natural. The collection is both FDA-approved and highly ranked for safety. Juvéderm has the ability to restore and enhance the fullness and moisture that so often characterize a youthful complexion.

What concerns can Juvederm address?

Juvéderm Vollure smooths areas that contain moderate to severe facial creases or folds, such as:

  • Forehead and brow lines
  • Acne scars and deep depressions
  • Hollow areas under the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Volume loss in the cheeks, temples, and lips
  • Lip wrinkles
  • Asymmetry of the nasal tip, nose bridge, and nostrils
  • Weak contours in the jawline
  • A loss of chin definition
  • An asymmetrical profile

What are the benefits of Juvederm?

  • A safe, non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment
  • Can help ward off wrinkles and fine lines
  • Can replenish areas that have experienced volume loss
  • Can be easily incorporated into a non-surgical facelift procedure or rhinoplasty
  • Fills and recontours the lips
  • Reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Leaves the patient with a more youthful appearance
  • Boosts self-confidence
  • Results can last for 6-24 months
  • There is no downtime

Who is a good candidate for Juvederm?

Patients who are struggling with static wrinkles in the forehead or around the nose and mouth, as well as those who have experienced volume loss in areas such as the cheeks, temples, jawline, and lips, can all benefit from Juvederm in Philadelphia. While injectables can provide amazing rejuvenation results, people dealing with moderate to severe loose skin may be better off seeking surgery.

As with any cosmetic procedure, it is vital that patients be in good mental and physical health and have realistic expectations for the outcomes of the procedure. More information can be received during the consultation.

The Juvéderm collection

All of the products in the Juvéderm family feature hyaluronic acid in a carefully-formulated gel. Juvéderm is able to bring real-looking volume to the face while smoothing away lines and wrinkles.

Each product in the Juvéderm collection is uniquely-formulated and has a specific gel density. The density of the gel is determined by the particular area of the face that is being treated. With one of the best track records of all anti-aging fillers, patients can rest assured that their injections will be performed with a Juvéderm product that is specially made for the treatment region. These fillers contain small amounts of lidocaine to ward off any feelings of discomfort throughout the treatment. The lidocaine component is denoted by the “XC” following the product name.

Juvéderm Voluma XC

Volume loss in the cheeks is a natural part of the aging process. This volume loss process can reduce definition and contours in the face, which often manifests as sagging skin, folds, and jowls.

Juvéderm Voluma is able to:

  • Restore soft, malleable hyaluronic acid to the cheek region
  • Add volume and definition to the cheeks
  • Create a more aesthetically-appealing facial look
  • Gently lift and smooth out creases, fine lines, and jowls in the face

The biggest benefit of Juvéderm Voluma is that the results often last as long as two years!

Juvéderm Vollure XC

Juvéderm Vollure is able to smooth out regions of the face that are showing moderate to severe lines and folds, such as:

  • The fine lines around the mouth
  • The nasolabial folds that span from the edges of the nose down toward the mouth corners
  • Smile lines that go from the mouth corners down to the chin
  • All types of wrinkles and lines that manifest on the lower half of the face
  • Once the volume is restored in this area, the lines can be reduced, giving the patient a revitalized look. The results from this treatment have been shown to last for as long as eighteen months.

Juvéderm Volbella XC

For patients that have thin lips and are struggling with fine lines and wrinkles in the mouth area, Juvéderm Volbella is the ideal option for rejuvenating the overall appearance of the face. Juvéderm Volbella is able to gently add volume and moisture to the lip area, decreasing the appearance of lip wrinkles and providing the lips with a striking, real-looking texture. By utilizing this thin hyaluronic acid gel for remarkably smooth incorporation, the outcome is incredibly natural and has proven to last for up to one year.

Juvéderm Ultra XC

Ultra is a multi-purpose injectable that is often used for mild to moderate lines and folds in the mouth area. It is also frequently employed in lip augmentation procedures. Its unique formulation is slightly denser than Volbella and can be used to:

  • Increase fullness and volume in the lips
  • Attenuate the appearance of fine to severe wrinkling in the nose and mouth region
  • Correct lighter issues in the bottom half of the face

The results from Juvéderm Ultra XC may last for up to one year.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus

Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a considerably thicker gel than the others. It is known for its ability to target deeper wrinkles and volume loss in the bottom half of the face. Beyond that, this injectable is able to smooth out nasolabial folds, smile lines, and more severe lines in the mouth area.

The patented hyaluronic acid formula that is featured in Juvéderm products can be smoothly integrated into the skin, increasing volume and raising features while preserving the patient’s natural features and aesthetics. The filler is characterized by its soft texture, which allows it to move with the face and its natural expressions. However, it is its firmness and ability to keep skin looking smoother and younger that make it a favorite among patients.
