What is Juvederm?
FDA approved Juvederm is a “next generation” dermal filler injectable gel that offers a natural voluminous look and feel with long lasting results. With the highest concentration of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market currently, the smooth gel formulations flow easily under the skin and can reduce the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles by restoring lost volume in facial tissue.*
There are several Juvederm products on the market, each designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles that vary in depth.
VOLUMA XC – adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. This agent can last up to 18 months.*
VOLLURE XC – smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Its effectiveness has been proven time and time again, delivering real results that last up to 1 year.*
VOLBELLA XC – is a unique filler because of its’ VYCROSS™ technology, an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. Volbella provides fullness to the lips, and is long lasting.* The Juverderm VYCROSS™ technology has limited swelling after injection-a major advantage using this line of products.
Ultra XC – this homogeneous (smooth) gel integrates naturally into the skin and is hydrophilic (meaning it pulls water in). It swells slightly after injection, but is nice around the mouth or in the temple.*
Ultra Plus XC – this highly concentrated hyaluronic acid filler is more concentrated that Ultra but can be used in the same area for more severe volume loss.* It also pulls water in so is nice is certain fat compartments of the face when placed deep on top of the bone.
During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Quibell will determine what target areas to treat, learn about your medical history by asking important questions and then develop a treatment plan with product recommendations that are personalized to your unique needs.
