Injectable fillers are a noninvasive way to achieve a rejuvenated appearance without surgery or any downtime. Treatment generally takes less than 30 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterwards.
Fillers work by adding volume to plump the skin and correct a variety of signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and hollows. There are many different types of injectables available, and certain ones are ideal for rejuvenating particular areas of the face. The most natural results can be achieved by layering different fillers because this technique achieves a more complete rejuvenation and smooth, unwrinkled skin.
The JUVÉDERM® Family of Fillers
JUVÉDERM® makes injectable gel fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a protein found naturally in our skin that provides its youthful plumpness. Over time, the amount of this protein decreases, which results in wrinkles and other signs of aging. These formulas replace this protein to fill the lost volume and correct signs of aging.
The main formulas in the JUVÉDERM® Family are JUVÉDERM® Ultra, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. Each formula has a specific density that is ideal for treating particular depths of the skin. Combining these treatments into one procedure by layering them on top of each other allows for all levels of the skin to be addressed, which results in a smooth, natural appearance.
This thinner formula is ideal for superficial locations because it produces a smoother result, which is important for achieving a natural appearance at the surface of the skin.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra is ideal for treating:
- Fine lines
- Moderate facial wrinkles and folds
- Hollows under the eyes
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
This thicker formula is made for deeper wrinkles and folds than the regular Ultra formula. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is injected slightly deeper in the dermis to treat signs of aging associated with volume loss in these layers.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus is ideal for treating:
- Medium lines
- Severe facial wrinkles and folds
- Thinning lips
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC contains a small amount of local anesthetic (lidocaine) for increased patient comfort. This thick formula is the longest lasting of the JUVÉDERM® family and is designed for injection deep in the skin to treat severe volume loss.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is ideal for treating:
- Volume loss (hollows) in the midface
- Cheek augmentation
