Great solution, little downtime
As we age, many changes occur that cause us to look older. Our skin loses its elasticity, and we begin to develop fine lines and wrinkles that are especially noticeable on our faces. In addition, the face tends to lose the fat tissue that creates its youthful plumpness, which leads to the formation of hollows and other contour irregularities. As these conditions worsen, many men and women begin feeling self-conscious about looking older than they feel.
Injectables provide patients with a more youthful and rested appearance by improving the following conditions:
- Fine lines
- Deep lines on the forehead
- Deep creases and folds
- Shallow contours
- Recessed scars
- Thin lips
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults over the age of 21.
What is Volbella™
One of the newer fillers in the product line of the family of products by Allergan. Volbella ™, is a hyaluronic acid formulated using their new patented Vycross technology which blends multiple different weights of Hyaluronic acid achieving longer lasting duration and less inflammation and swelling than prior fillers.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Volbella™
Volbella ™ is indicated for fine lines around the mouth, and adding fullness to the lips in a less dramatic fashion. FDA approved and lasting up to a year, this is a major break though for the treatment of fine lines around the mouth as well as adding a small amount of fullness to the lips for those individuals not wanting a major change.
This new technology which has been added recently, shows the growth of advancement in the rejuvenation options of the face. Also present in other Allergan products, this gives another option to plastic surgeons to use in the practice.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance.
What is Vollure XC?
Vollure XC is a new FDA approved filler added to the family of fillers by Allergan. This product has been approved and used in Europe since 2013. Using new “VyCROSS” technology, Allergan has combined the different formulations of their fillers to achieve a longer lasting result. The different high and low weights of Hyaluronic acid all natural fillers, are bound together in a special formulation which permits it to last longer and cause less swelling and inflammation when injected.
For use in the nasolabial fold or “parenthesis”, deeper folds and wrinkles, Vollure XC has shown duration of effect up to 18 months. Juvederm in the same area lasts 11-12 months. So a 50% increase in duration of effect, with only a small increase in price.
Juvederm ™ is a non animal sourced dermal filler product by the makers of Botox® Cosmetic. It is composed of hyaluronic acid which retains water and is a long lasting correction for facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body which is why no allergy testing is required prior to usage. There are two forms of Juvederm ™; one for the majority of wrinkles and folds and one for deeper folds. The correction should last for 6-9 months depending on the individual.
Restylane is a natural beauty lift. Restylane is a natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane is approved by the FDA for filling soft tissues of the face. Restylane is a long-lasting and crystal-clear NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid) gel used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and folds, shape facial contours, and augment lips.
Restylane is not extracted from animals. Instead it is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is almost identical to the type naturally found in the body. This eliminates almost any risk of an allergic reaction, making it safe to use without pre-testing. Restylane has been used in over 1.5 million treatments nationwide.
Restylane treatments are quick, virtually painless injections into the lips or other wrinkles on the face. Once in your skin, Restylane works with your body’s natural hyaluronic acid and integrates into the tissue. This creates natural-looking volume, which results in a younger appearance. One half hour treatment typically lasts four to eight months.
