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.

Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in the Juvederm 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, cheeks and jawlines by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in our bodies. Juvederm products have the advantage of patented technology which allows for the blending of different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, resulting in a much longer-lasting treatment.

Juvederm treatments look so natural only you will know, but you’ll look better (and feel better about your appearance!) right away. In addition, a single treatment can last up to 2 years before needing to be re-administered. And, best of all, Juvederm treatments can be reversed if you’re not happy with the results.

Worried about pain? Juvederm products contain pain-reducing lidocaine (the same numbing agent used by doctors and dentists) which will numb the treatment area within seconds.

How Juvederm Vollure Works

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. These deep creases are one of the most noticeable signs of age but with Juvederm Vollure our Magnifaskin MedSpa clinicians can fill in these folds, smoothing the skin and greatly reducing the appearance of age around the mouth and nose.

The most recent addition to the Juvederm line of facial fillers, Vollure lasts for up to 18 months with a single treatment.

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. In addition, this loss of firmness and fullness results in our lips losing their clearly defined border, and thus ‘blending in’ to the surrounding skin. Juvederm Volbella is specifically formulated to give you back your natural luscious, beautiful lips by reducing these signs of aging.

Volbella is the only filler proven to restore your lips to a more youthful appearance for up to 12 months with a single treatment.

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. Over time, as age and gravity take their toll and our bodies lose some of the filling muscle and healthy fats we had in our youth, our faces can begin to lose volume and firmness, resulting in unnecessary sagging.

Juvederm Voluma is specifically formulated to restore youthful fullness in the areas of our faces most susceptible to these losses.

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.

Ultra Plus contains larger particles, which results in a longer duration of effect from a single treatment. Juvederm Ultra treatments typically last from 6-9 months, where Ultra Plus treatments may last up to 12 months.

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.

THE JUVEDERM FAMILY

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.

THE RESTYLANE FAMILY

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.
