All About Juvéderm®!

If you’re disappointed with the severity of facial wrinkles and creases in your skin such as nasolabial folds (lines extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth), odds are you could benefit from Juvéderm. Juvéderm is the most recent cosmetic injectable to gain FDA approval, and has become extremely popular with American consumers due to its immediate and long-lasting results. Although it is relatively new to the U.S., Juvéderm has been widely used in Europe since 2005 and can now be found in over 72 countries.

Juvéderm is a smooth consistency injectable gel that consists of HA (hyaluronic acid), a substance that’s found naturally in the body and works with collagen and elastin to give volume to sagging skin. The Hylacross technology used to create these products produces a smoother, more malleable gel (compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a more granular consistency).

Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the site of the injection to provide some cushioning. Each injection adds temporary volume and gives skin a smoother appearance. Optimal results are achieved with additional treatments.

The Benefits of Juvéderm

Individual results will vary, but Juvéderm injections offer a non-surgical way to reduce many signs of aging and improve your skin by:

  • Plumping up folds and reducing wrinkles that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth (Nasolabial folds).
  • Minimizing the so-called parentheses, or the downturned creases at the corners of the mouth.
  • Augmenting thin or aging lips.
  • Filling in prominent vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows.
  • Reducing the hollows under the eyes.
  • Correcting scars.

Juvéderm Products at Aristocrat

Aristocrat carries a range of Juvéderm products designed to meet a variety of skin care needs. They’re applied depending on the facial area treated and the volume necessary. Here’s what’s in our lineup:

Juvéderm VollureTM XC

Vollure is an HA (hyaluronic acid) dermal filler approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. The injectable filler lasts up to 18 months and is designed to be performed on any patient over the age of 21 dissatisfied with the fine lines and wrinkles in their face. It works to soften parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth by adding volume in these problem areas.

Juvéderm Vollure XC injections are placed into the treatment area with an extremely fine needle. Any pain is minimal, and a topical anesthetic is used to numb the skin and ensure your comfort. There may be some minor bruising at the injection site, but should it occur, it will pass on its own within a few days. Vollure™ XC works to restore your youthful appearance and increase your self-confidence.

Juvéderm Volbella® XC

Volbella is making waves as a definitive treatment for signs of aging and volume loss in the lips and around the mouth. Although the lips and the area around the mouth often develop the most prominent signs of aging, they’re ignored by many cosmetic treatments. With the introduction of Volbella, Aristocrat is proud to provide one of the most state-of-the-art and unique dermal fillers developed for its patients.

Volbella is a smooth gel injectable that requires no surgery or downtime once it’s introduced into the treatment area. Volbella’s hyaluronic acid solution is formulated using VYCROSS technology, creating results that are smoother, softer, last longer, and appear more natural. The solution contains hyaluronic acids in a cross-linked formation that prevents water absorption, so patients can have the added benefit of returning to daily activities immediately without worrying about excessive swelling.

Another ingredient in Volbella, Lidocaine, reduces pain to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. The results leave patients with more accentuated lips and softer lines around the mouth to reduce “smoker’s” and “marionette” lines.

Juvéderm Voluma® XC

Voluma is the most sought out injectable filler to correct age-related volume loss specifically in the cheeks and other areas of the face. This non-surgical injectable filling gel is the winner of the 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award for its revolutionary technique in filling volume loss in adults over the age of 21.

Juvéderm Voluma XC is an FDA approved injectable filler that penetrates deep into the subcutaneous, and/or supraperiosteal skin level to restore volume with immediate results. The hyaluronic acid in Voluma works with collagen and elastin to give new, improved volume to sagging skin in the cheeks and face area.
