juvederm3

Juvederm Ultra XC  injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth.  It adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.  Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 9 months to 1 Year.

1 syringe of Juvéderm™ ULTRA XC

Within the first 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure and alcoholic beverages.  Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site.  If there is swelling you may need to place an ice pack over swollen area.

JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS XC

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth.  It adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.  Because this is thicker then Juvederm Ultra, most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about a Year.

Within the first 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure and alcoholic beverages.  Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site.  If there is swelling you may need to place an ice pack over swollen area.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area to last  up to 2 years with optimal treatment.  Learn more about this subtle lift.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC

JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in adults over the age of 21.

It is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler FDA-approved to last up to 18 months with optimal treatment. Both JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC share this indication, however, JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC offers a longer duration because JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC  delivers subtle, soft volume, it is for the nasolabial folds, which are the most requested dermal filler treatment area. About half of all dermal filler patients receive treatment in this part of the face.

  • Q: How does JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC fit into the rest of the JUVÉDERM Collection of Fillers?
  • A: The JUVÉDERM® Collection includes a spectrum of fillers specifically designed for different treatment areas and patient needs. JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC brings VYCROSS® technology to the most requested dermal filler treatment area – nasolabial folds.
  • Q: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC are also formulated with VYCROSS® technology. How does JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC compare?
  • JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is specifically tailored to add volume and is indicated to correct age related volume loss in the cheek area. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is designed to be a soft, smooth gel indicated for the lips and perioral area. JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC is tailored with a unique balance of gel properties to be firmer and more cohesive than JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, but less firm than JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, making it appropriate for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
  • Q: It seems like JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC is very similar to JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC. What sets them apart?
  • A: JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC are both indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds), however, they are uniquely formulated.  JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is a more highly cross-linked, robust gel, while JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC adds subtle, softer volume.
  • Q:Is JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC a replacement for JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC?
  • A: No, JUVÉDERM VOLLURETM XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC are both indicated for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, but their gel properties are different, so physicians now have an additional treatment option for patients. Your doctor will decide which product is most appropriate based on your specific needs and treatment goals.

RESTYLANE®

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds including deep and superficial nasolabial folds. Restylane® is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. There is virtually no risk of animal based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane® lasts 3 to 6 months, which is significantly longer than collagen, so treatments are typically scheduled two to three times a year. With our extensive experience we have found that having a touchup treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.

It is also effective for acne scarring. It lasts approximately 1 to 2 years, depending on the area injected.
