Cosmetic Fillers: Add Volume with Juvéderm

Fillers in Philadelphia
If you follow the aesthetic industry you’ve heard about hyaluronic acid and facial fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body whose job is to hydrate and plump the skin. Unfortunately, it can’t overcome the decrease in collagen (the protein responsible for providing the skin’s support structure) production as we age. That’s why our skin becomes saggy, flattens with volume loss, and develops wrinkles and lines as we get older.
Dr. Chandler offers the Juvéderm® line of dermal fillers to return volume to these areas.
What is Juvederm?
Juvéderm, along with Restylane®, are the most popular dermal fillers worldwide. The FDA first approved both for use in the U.S. in 2006. Both started with just a single filler and have since expanded to target different areas of the face. All the Juvéderm® fillers are hyaluronic acid-based and use the hydrating and plumping characteristics to replace lost volume. When injected, Juvéderm® binds with water molecules in the area to firm the skin, add volume, and fill wrinkles.
What are the different Juvederm fillers?
- Juvéderm XC
Smile lines, parentheses lines, and marionette lines are the targets of the original Juvéderm® product. You hear about all sorts of “anti-aging” serums and creams, but they only moisturize the skin’s surface. Juvéderm® XC adds volume beneath the skin to smooth these lines and folds.
- Juvéderm Voluma XC
Dr. Chandler may call it “age-related midface volume loss.” You call it sagging cheeks. Over time as you lose the collagen to support your skin and as your underlying muscles weaken, your cheeks flatten. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC
You may not think about your lips with facial aging, but our lips thin as we get older, losing the same support as our skin. Other women have never been happy with the fullness of their lips. Juvéderm® Ultra XC is designed to plump the lips.
- Juvéderm Volbella XC
This Juvéderm® option is brand relatively new, coming on the market in summer 2016. Whereas Ultra XC adds fullness and plumps thin lips, Volbella XC is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.
- Juvéderm Volure XC
The newest Juvéderm filler, approved in March 2017, Vollure® XC sounds like it duplicates the original Juvederm® XC, which adds volume to nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, and marionette lines. But Vollure® is specifically formulated for moderate to deep creases and wrinkles in these areas. It adds more volume to address these deeper depressions.
