The Juvederm Family
The Science of Rejuvenation
General Purpose Filler
Effect Duration: 4 to 6 months
Juvederm treatments look so natural only you will know, but you’ll look better (and feel better about your appearance!) right away. Treatments typically last from 4 to months. Best of all, Juvederm treatments can be reversed if you’re not happy with the results.
Smoother, More Natural Feel
Effect Duration: 4 to 6 months
Ultra is a little softer general purpose filler, 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.
Effect Duration: 6 to 9 months
Ultra Plus contains larger particles, which results in a longer duration of effect from a single treatment. Juvederm Ultra treatments typically last from 4-6 months, where Ultra Plus treatments may last up to 9 months.
Effect Duration: up to 18 months
The nasolabial folds, or the lines which run from the sides of our nose to the corners of our mouths, deepen with age as the connective tissues and hyaluronic acids are gradually lost.
Effect Duration: up to 1 year
Just as with other areas of our faces, our lips lose fullness and smoothness as we age. The loss of not only hyaluronic acid but also collagen and elastin can cause lips to become unnecessarily wrinkled and to thin out.
Cheeks and Jawline
Effect Duration: up to 2 years
Using Vycross technology, Voluma treatments last for up to 2 years and are best used for adding fullness to cheeks, smoothing the jawline and enhancing the overall shape and contour of the face.
HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS - WHICH IS BEST FOR YOU?
Both the Restylane and Juvederm family of products use hyaluronic acid as the active ingredient however there are some differences. Each compound contains different amounts of hyaluronic acid, and the gels they are mixed with come in differing concentrations and levels of firmness and elasticity.
Please use the following guide to determine which treatment may be best for your needs. Our clinicians will also make recommendations at your free consultation.
Best for deep wrinkles and adding volume
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.
Best for fine lines, moderate folds and lips
Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in Restylane and the Restylane family of injectable gel fillers which restore a more natural, youthful appearance by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing skin, and even subtly enhancing lips and cheeks by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in our bodies.
Restylane treatments look so natural only you will know, but you’ll look better (and feel better about your appearance!) right away. Restylane treatments last 3 to 6 months, between 3 and 4 months for lips, and up to 12 months for Defyne and Refyne.
