Popular Juvederm Uses in Beverly Hills
Juvederm was the first dermal filler to receive FDA approval back in June 2006 and is the best selling injectable filler on the market with several versions to choose from depending on your age and the severity of your facial wrinkles. That is why it is so popular with patients in Beverly Hills and across the United States. We use all formulations of Juvederm in our practice here in Beverly Hills: Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Voluma.
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus
There are a few types of Juvederm available. The original, named Juvederm Ultra, is commonly referred to as Juvederm. It is an effective product for improving lines and wrinkles on the face in the nasolabial folds and temples. Juvederm Ultra is composed of hyaluronic acid and cross-linked sugar chains. The results of this hyaluronic acid filler can last up to 6 months.
For facial volumizing or deeper wrinkles, you might want to try the thicker form of Juvederm called Juvederm Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra produces great results for lip augmentation and cheeks; Ultra Plus works well for more pronounced wrinkles. An experienced certified Beverly Hills injection specialist can help you decide which type is right for you. Our world-renowned doctors are highly experienced and skilled and provide among the best Juvederm Beverly Hills has to offer.
Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus benefits include the following:
- They are nonsurgical and can be injected in a short office visit.
- They are part of the most widely used family of fillers prescribed in the U.S.
- They have an immediate, natural-looking effect that can last for 6-9 months.
- Juvederm's Hylacross™ technology makes Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus the only smooth-consistency gels of their kind.
Allergan, the pharmaceutical company that makes Juvederm, has recently released a new version called Juvederm Voluma. It is another hyaluronic acid gel that has proven to be excellent for restoring volume to the cheeks while simultaneously lifting the lower face. It is a thicker version of Juvederm that was developed to temporarily replace facial tissue volume which has been lost over time.
Juvederm Voluma is also made from hyaluronic acid and cross-linked sugar chains. However, chains in Juvederm Voluma are shorter, which lowers its weight so that it has more lift. The Vycross™ technology makes the particles oval shaped and more uniform. The substance is easier to inject, and the extra cross-linking gives Voluma longer-lasting results -- up to 2 years, which is longer than any other injectable filler on the market.
Juvederm Voluma benefits include the following.
- It provides instantaneous results that can last for two years.
- It is nonsurgical and can be injected in a short office visit.
- It is part of the most widely used family of fillers prescribed in the U.S.
- Vycross™ technology makes Voluma molecules more uniform and easier to inject.
Juvederm XC Versions
The entire family of Juvederm products is now available in an XC version that contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the injection. Ask our Beverly Hills facial aesthetics professionals if Juvederm Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC or Voluma XC is right for you.« Back to Articles & Tips
