Just about everyone’s skin will begin to sag, wrinkle, and lose volume over time. However, you don’t have to let the signs of aging take over if you don’t want to. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm offer a versatile, subtle, natural-looking solution for people concerned about their aging skin.
Columbus Facial Plastics in Columbus, OH, offers patients dermal filler treatments using the premier Juvéderm line. Our dermal filler treatments give patients the fuller, smoother, younger-looking skin they desire.
Juvéderm’s line of dermal fillers is specially formulated to target specific skin concerns, making it one of the country’s most popular dermal filler solutions. If you’re curious about what Juvéderm treatments can do for you, it’s time to learn more about dermal fillers with Columbus Facial Plastics.
What Is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm fillers focus on restoring and reshaping the face and are usually applied to the cheeks, lips, and lines around the mouth.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body. However, its production slows as we age, contributing to a loss of volume and radiance over time.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm, like most dermal fillers, consists of a gel-like substance that provides an immediate “filling” effect when applied to wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin. Once injected, it sits under the skin, acting as a cushion and restoring the skin’s plump, youthful appearance.
Among its many benefits, hyaluronic acid acts as a natural humectant, attracting and binding to water molecules and then holding them in the skin. This increased hydration restores the skin’s glow and may also increase collagen production.
Juvéderm’s Vycross Technology
One of the benefits of using Juvéderm is the product line’s patented Vycross technology. The Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure products all use specially formulated hyaluronic acid that links lower- and higher-weight molecules together to create a durable formula.
This unique formulation allows Juvéderm products to last twice as long as other fillers.
Another benefit of Juvéderm’s Vycross technology is that it creates a tighter bond in the hyaluronic acid molecules, making the gel more stable and less likely to migrate once injected. The more hyaluronic acid in the gel, the thicker the gel becomes and the longer the product lasts in the skin.
How Can I Restore My Skin with Juvéderm?
Juvéderm fillers are customized to precisely target areas of the face and specific skin concerns. They offer natural-looking treatments for numerous skin concerns, including:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Volume loss in the cheeks and around the nose
- Thin lips
- Smoker’s lines around the lips
- Brow furrows
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Hollows under the eyes
- Depressions near the temples
- Weak jawline or chin
Achieving the best results from your Juvéderm treatments requires the skill of an expert physician. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nogan at Columbus Facial Plastics is qualified to determine the best injection locations and produce exceptional results.
How Do Juvéderm Fillers Differ from One Another?
While all of the Juvéderm fillers use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient, each formulation uses different concentrations of hyaluronic acid, resulting in a change in consistency to target each concern.
At Columbus Facial Plastics, we offer patients Juvéderm Voluma XC, Volbella XC, Vollure XC, and Ultra Plus XC.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC uses a thicker, stiffer consistency to provide skin with more structural support. Voluma XC is most often used for facial contouring, targeting larger areas like the cheekbones, chin, and jawline.
Only Juvéderm Voluma XC is approved for chin augmentation. This thicker formula allows patients to enjoy the benefits of their Voluma XC injections for up to two years.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
Juvéderm Volbella XC is specifically designed to provide subtle, natural-looking lip enhancements. The treatments offer volume and smooth lines and wrinkles in the lips and surrounding skin.
Volbella XC uses a thinner, more spreadable formula to treat the fragile skin around the mouth. This extra-light gel allows for more natural mouth movement and feel after treatment.
In addition, unlike most lip fillers, Juvéderm Volbella XC provides patients with a long-lasting formula, with treatments plumping and defining the lips for a year or longer.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
Juvéderm Vollure XC is one of the most versatile fillers in the Juvéderm line. Specifically designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Vollure XC provides volume to the deeper layers of the skin, which cause shadowing as the subcutaneous fat layer begins to recede.
Vollure XC uses a durable but thinner consistency than Voluma XC. In addition, it’s designed to be flexible and spreadable so that patients can continue to make natural facial expressions with the filler in place.
As a result, Vollure XC is a preferred choice in treating high mobility areas of the face, like the lines around the mouth, chin, and nasolabial folds.
Vollure XC is the longest-lasting filler designed to treat the mid-face, and patients can expect to enjoy their treatment results for 18 months or longer.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC provides a thicker consistency to better target volume loss, severe wrinkles, and facial shaping and contouring. Treatment areas include depressed regions of the cheeks, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC uniquely targets areas with fat loss and deep skin depressions, and the results last 12 months or longer.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is non-allergenic, uses no animal products, and uses a synthetic hyaluronic acid to mimic the molecules naturally occurring in the body. Juvéderm’s line of fillers is so safe and versatile that almost anyone makes a good candidate. Juvéderm is appropriate for all skin types and tones.
