JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC
Approved in 2006 by the United States FDA, JUVÉDERM® Ultra is a dermatological filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substances naturally found in the human body and is created by biosynthesis in a laboratory. It is a powerfully hydrating material responsible for preserving moisture in the skin. Our HA levels decrease as we age, causing our skin to become dehydrated and to lose volume and firmness. MS Slim is able to accurately and meticulously inject JUVÉDERM® back into targeted areas to help restore a more youthful facial appearance with minimal risk of allergic reaction and other negative side-effects.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC (Voluma) is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that instantly augments and enhances volume in all three regions of cheek (apex, apple, and hollow) and lasts for up to 2 years. It is the newest and most robust of the Juvéderm family of products. This product is designed to achieve a subtle lift, helping to restore and contour, giving the appearance of a more youthful, rested look for many years.
With age, our skin, fat, muscle and bone tend to lose volume, resulting in a thin or hollow appearance around the chin, eyes, cheeks, and cheekbones. This can be a result of the natural decrease in collagen production within our skin, weight loss, or age-related facial fat, soft tissue and even natural bone loss that occurs with time. Our folds and jowls become more prominent as volume loss and gravity shifts the cheeks downward.
Treatment with Juvéderm Voluma™ XC combats these effects by restoring volume to the face, providing natural contouring, and smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles. The results of Juvéderm Voluma™ XC are immediate and can last for up to 24 months (less dramatic version of baby fat), and it helps restore the hollowing that occurs over time by restoring youthful contours in the cheeks, temples, or even earlobes.
Juvéderm Vollure™XC is the first and only filler proven to last up to 18 months in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It smooth your parentheses lines! Aging, genetics, and environmental factors like sun exposure can cause parentheses lines to become more visible. Juvederm Vollure XC subtly smooths the lines to deliver results that last.
What is the JUVÉDERM® Vollure Treatment Process and lasting effects?
JUVÉDERM® Vollure filler treatment is quite simple and involves injections into the area of the wrinkles and creases with minimal discomfort. Its effects are immediate and long-lasting, with the average patient enjoying a healthier, more youthful facial appearance for up to eighteen months.
Benefits and Risks/Side effects of JUVÉDERM® Injections
The most obvious benefits are immediate improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and creases, and fuller lips for those who wish to augment this aspect of their face. Since HA is naturally occurring in the body, there’s only a minimal risk of allergic or autoimmune response. The only real side effect is swelling at the injection site, but this is normal and subsides rapidly after treatment.
