Juvederm XC is one of many hyaluronic acid fillers that can be used as a treatment for wrinkles as well as for lip augmentation. When injected as a filler, the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm XC binds with water molecules in the skin to fill out the targeted wrinkle or crease. The formulation also contains the numbing agent lidocaine to provide additional comfort during facial filler treatment.

It can also be used to restore age-related volume depletion in the lips, make lips fuller and shapelier, and treat vertical lip lines. The results from Juvederm XC can last up to one year in most patients. Studies have shown that patients typically need only half the initial treatment amount of Juvederm XC during their yearly follow-up treatments, with results typically lasting between six months and one year.

Voluma XC

Juvederm Voluma XC is the first dermal filler FDA approved for enhancing or restoring volume to the mid-face and cheeks. Using a patented VYCROSS technology that has been customized for lift and duration, this unique hyaluronic acid filler restores a more youthful contour to the face that lasts up to two years. The efficiency of its highly cross-linked molecules results in a smooth formulation that creates greater volume and longer lasting results than other HA fillers. Juvederm Voluma XC is also infused with lidocaine, a numbing agent, to increase comfort during the facial filler and cheek plumping treatment.

Juvederm Voluma XC is injected deep into the layers of the skin where it is used to give the mid-face a more youthful contour. Recent research has shown that its hyaluronic acid helps to stimulate the production of more collagen. Thus, Juvederm Voluma XC rejuvenates not only the skin’s appearance but its function as well. The incredible results from Juvederm Voluma XC have made it a hit with the Hollywood crowd and with A-listers everywhere. Results typically last up to two years.

Volbella XC

Recently, the FDA approved Juvederm Volbella XC for the treatment of the lips. Volbella XC utilizes VYCROSS technology to create a smooth gel that adds subtle volume to the lips and can soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. Volbella also contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, to increase patient comfort during treatment.

Patients who are looking to restore age-depleted volume will find Volbella gives them a rejuvenated appearance that never looks overdone. Young patients in Old Metairie who are simply looking for plumper or more shapely lips can achieve their ideal while still looking natural and proportionate. Volbella’s smooth texture also allows the lips to feel soft and natural to the touch.

Results last up to one year for most patients. Typically, patients need less Juvederm Volbella for yearly touch-ups than they did on initial treatment.
