People who want a more youthful look without surgery may find dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Voluma®, dermal filler treatments that restore the lost volume and create a refreshed look, an excellent solution to get immediate results. Glow Anti-Aging & Cosmetic Laser Center, LLC, serving the Clarks Summit in Lackawanna County area and surrounding communities in NEPA, is pleased to offer those treatments.
Juvederm is a line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to correct volume loss or to add volume in specific areas like the nasolabial folds, lips, and cheeks.
Juvederm Ultra is designed for use in facial folds, lips, and minor skin depressions like scars. The formula is injected into the middle layers of the skin. Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra XC last for around 9 months. Juvederm Ultra XC is the same formula as Juvederm Ultra, but it includes lidocaine. By including this anesthetic in the Juvederm Ultra formula, patient discomfort during injections is greatly decreased.
Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC are thicker versions of Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra XC. Thanks to a higher concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid molecules, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC tend to last longer, usually around 12 months. These formulas are injected into the deeper layers of the dermis.
Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC are best suited for severe wrinkles, deep facial folds, scars, and the lips. In general, these formulas provide a greater degree of correction than Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra XC. The Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC formulas are identical, except for the addition of lidocaine anesthetic in the XC formula.
Juvederm Voluma XC is the newest addition to the Juvederm product family. The formula is specifically designed for the mid-face. It's often used for mid-face sculpting and for filling in hollowed cheeks. Voluma XC can also be used in the nasolabial fold area. The Juvederm XC formula lasts longer than any other Juvederm formula, with clients getting up to 2 years of correction in the mid-face area.
Each Juvederm formula has its own specific benefits. Clients can discuss their concerns and goals with Glow Anti-Aging & Cosmetic Laser Center’s doctor to help them determine which type of Juvederm will work best for them.
