In 2016 Allergan added to its filler portfolio with the introduction of Volbella which is FDA approved for injection into and around the mouth area. The Hyaluronic acid concentration in this filler is lower than in the other Allergan HA products. This causes the gel to be especially soft and smooth, which then creates an unique, soft, subtle lip augmentation and correction of wrinkles around the mouth. These natural looking results last approximately a year.
Juvederm Volbella XC has been specifically designed to alleviate perioral lines in a way unlike any other filler. It works by gently increasing the volume of the lips, which works to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles without creating an over-enhanced pout.
Since Volbella has such a soft consistency, it could also be used to gently smooth out crows feet, add a touch of extra volume to nasolabial folds (the lines which run from the outside of the nose to the outside of the mouth), and even smooth out other fine wrinkles elsewhere on the face.
The newest filler that Allergan introduced is Vollure. Vollure uses Allergan’s unique VYCROSS technology, which translates into a very specifically tailored gel firmness and cohesivity. This filler was originally designed for the nasal labia fold area, but with its unique properties is being used all across the face with amazing results that last up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance. The most commonly treated areas are the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC adds volume to the treated area producing subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
Voluma is made by the makers of Juvéderm and Botox® Cosmetic. Juvéderm Voluma® adds volume where age and gravity have depleted the face. During the normal aging process you lose volume in your face, your cheeks become flatter and the skin sags at the jawline. By adding Juvéderm Voluma® to your cheeks, you can restore a more youthful look, appearance and profile.
Juvéderm Voluma is used to correct age related volume loss around the cheekbones to help create a more youthful appearance. The number one complaint that most patients have is the complaint of sudden nasolabial folds and marionette lines. This is caused by the loss of collagen, the loss of support, and the loss of bone density originating from the mid-face/cheek area. Using Juvéderm Voluma to refresh, restore and renew a youthful appearance in the midface area will help decrease the appearance of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. This product will last approximately two years, but the benefits will continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen.
Juvéderm® XC is FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can last up to one year, although results may vary. When injected, this smooth gel filler offers a natural look and feel, as well as long-lasting results. This treatment helps to ‘fill out’ and smooth away lines or wrinkles, acne scars and enhance the lip area.
