Hyaluronic Acid: The Magic Behind Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid. Sounds scary? Not really. Hyaluronic acid is just the fancy medical term for a sugar compound that occurs naturally in our bodies, and which is responsible for maintaining facial fullness and elasticity in our skin by binding to water like a sponge, absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Over time though, as we age, our bodies produce less of this important compound. Juvederm can help restore youthful levels of hyaluronic acid.

Juvederm Ultra & Plus

All Fold Depths

Ultra and Ultra Plus are both ‘general purpose’ facial fillers and can be used to smooth wrinkles, fill in nasolabial folds (the lines from the side of your nose to the corners of your mouth) and marionette lines (the lines from the corners of your mouth toward your jawline) and to restore fullness to cheeks and lips. In addition, these products can be used to smooth wrinkles and restore youthfulness to our hands.

Ultra is a little softer, which may result in a smoother, more natural feel to the treated areas but is also one reason why these treatments won’t last as long as similar treatments with Ultra Plus. The ‘XC’ extension on both of these products simply indicates that they have added lidocaine to reduce discomfort during injections.

How Long Will My Treatment Last?

We’ve provided average durations for each Juvederm treatment type as a handy guideline. Each person is different, however. Factors such as your overall health, activity level, metabolism, and how much you tend to move your face can influence how long each treatment will last.

All formulations of Juvederm contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort during treatment.

Duration: Up to 12 Months

Fillers

THE JUVEDERM FAMILY

Juvederm is smoother than Restylane, but this doesn’t mean better. While the smoother consistency of Juvederm means that it is less likely to leave small bumps after treatment (these will fade and smooth out in time) this also means that Juvederm is more likely to ‘bleed’ in to areas around the treatment area, with undesirable results. Juvederm is, for instance, ideal for filling lines and wrinkles, but if used in the hollows under the eyes can easily travel to the top of the cheeks, creating an undesirable puffiness. For this application, Restylane would be the better choice.

THE RESTYLANE FAMILY

Restylane and Restylane Lyft are slightly coarser than Juvederm, but while this means that a Restylane treatment may leave small bumps that will take a few days to smooth out, the thicker consistency means that Restylane is less likely to ‘travel’ outside the treatment area. This makes Restylane the right choice to fill in lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips as well as the nasolabial folds. Restylane will smooth these areas without creating puffiness in the surrounding tissues.
