Dermal fillers bring about wonderful changes, but many patients find it difficult to keep track of the differences between the specific fillers. At Foglietti Fostyk Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mark A. Foglietti and Dr. Alanna Foglietti Fostyk are proud to offer Allergan’s Juvéderm line of fillers.
What All Juvéderm Products Have in Common
Before breaking down the differences between each specific filler, it is helpful to know what they all have in common. All of the products are made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in your skin to help preserve moisture, though the amount shrinks over the years due to sun exposure and aging. When more hyaluronic acid is injected into you, your skin looks smoother and rejuvenated.
No matter which Juvéderm fillers are selected for your treatment, you can expect a process that is both quick and accompanied by only minimal discomfort. Plus, there is no real “recovery” period: you can resume most activities immediately following your appointment.
Types of Juvéderm Fillers
Juvéderm XC is the first product in the Juvéderm line, and is injected frequently to tackle moderate wrinkles. Subsequently, Allergan released Juvéderm XC Ultra Plus, which is like the previous product but with a stronger hyaluronic acid concentration. Ultra Plus is generally recommended for more serious wrinkles and lines, as well as to give lips a plumper appearance.
Juvéderm Voluma XC uses the thickest blend of hyaluronic acid, so it is used for the toughest jobs. Usually that means volumizing the cheeks and lines that settle on the middle of the face. Because of its strength, the effects generally last the longest, with staying power up to two years later.
Then there is Juvéderm Volbella XC, which is the brand’s thinnest injectable. You may wonder why someone deliberately want a weaker filler, but it is often the injectable of choice for people who want subtler changes like to vanish only thin lines or give the lips slight augmentation.
For jobs that need something between those two extremes, the right choice is often Juvéderm Vollure. Vollure is most often used to tackle smile lines and marionette lines, as well as other significant lines on the lower half of the face.
