One of the biggest areas of concerns that our patients have when they come into our office for a consultation is the development of fine lines and wrinkles around the lower portion of their face. And because there is no current cure for aging, there really is no way to stop these lines from starting. However, just because there’s no cure for aging that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way for you to get temporary relief from them. As one of the most popular fillers that we use here at Plastic Surgery Associates, Juvederm is designed to add volume to your skin— alleviating signs of aging in the process. However, we offer our patients two different types of Juvederm to treat different portions of the face; Juvederm XC and Juvederm Voluma XC. So, what are the differences between these types of fillers and which one is right for you? Read on to learn more.
If you have deep nasolabial folds or severe facial wrinkles on the bottom portion of your face, then Juvederm XC may be the right solution for you. Made of hyaluronic acid, when injected into the deeper layers of the dermis, Juvederm works to fill in fine lines and wrinkles— giving you a smoother complexion. Lasting around a year on average, patients who get Juvederm XC notice visible results without having to go under the knife.
Juvederm Voluma XC
As you age, your skin starts to lose volume and elasticity, which can make you look older and more tired. However, with injections like Juvederm Voluma XC, you can add volume to your face almost instantly. Just like with Juvederm XC, Juvederm Voluma XC is also derived from hyaluronic acid. However, this specific formulation is used to add volume to not only the lips but the cheeks, chin, and the bottom portion of the face.
Aging is one of the downfalls of life. However, here at Plastic Surgery Associates, we can make the aging process a little more graceful with facial fillers like Juvederm.
