Juvéderm Ultra® from Allergan Inc., is a gel like product with a smooth consistency made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm® is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). It is also a wonderful choice for restoring fullness to lips.
Juvéderm ™Ultra Plus, from Allergan Inc., is an injectable gel that restores volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. Juvéderm Ultra Plus injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. The difference between Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus is particle size and the depth of placement, with Ultra Plus being larger and placed deeper
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first filler to be FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for up to 2 years. As we age, we lose the fat pads in our cheek area, so the volume loss results in a more aged appearance. This is the perfect filler for bringing back some facial youthfulness
RADIESSE® Wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility, and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity that strip your skin of its youthful appearance.
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you are creating your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That’s because RADIESSE wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. RADIESSE is becoming the go to filler by medical professionals for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
RESTYLANE® is a beneficial and natural lifting treatment for maturing skin. Working as a gel based form of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® is gently injected into the facial wrinkles, lips or underneath the eye area to enhance the skin’s fullness and flexibility.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.1-3 Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
Volbella®is one of Allergan’s newest dermal fillers. Based on the same cross-linked technology as Voluma, it is approved to plump lips and smooth lip lines. For those who want subtle enhancement of their lips, Volbella can be a great choice.
Volbella is injected in the same way as other dermal fillers. This product differs from Voluma, however, in that it can be placed very superficially. This is what makes it particularly good for treating smoker’s lines. It contains lidocaine to ease the discomfort of injection.
Vollure® is part of the Juvederm family of products and uses the same technology as Voluma and Volbella. If you are looking for subtle, natural appearing correction of your nasolabial folds, Vollure may be the best option for you.
Vollure is injected into folds in the same way as other fillers. Vollure may last longer than other products injected into the parentheses lines. According to Allergan (the makers of Vollure), patients can see improvement lasting up to 18 months with optimal treatment.
