JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler designed with the patented Vycross™ technology, which provides more crosslinks of the HA, resulting in longer product duration and greater lift capacity. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC was designed to add subtle volume to lips and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines.
We prefer the use of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC for several reasons. The injected tissues absorb less water after injection, have less swelling and produce more natural looking results. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC has more advanced technology behind it, and its concentration of HA (15 mg/mL) is much less than JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC’s (24 mg/mL), which allows for a smoother injection, and a more moldable product.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC uses a more advanced technology and a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid, which in turn provides longer duration of the product and has greater moldability.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is also a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler designed with the patented Vycross™ technology, providing longer product duration and greater lift capacity. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has been approved by the FDA for the treatment and correction of midface volume loss and is the only filler clinically proven to last up to 2 years. It is injected deep into the subcutaneous layer of the skin and/or directly on the bone (supraperiosteal) to lift and contour the cheek area. Some patients have been reported to look 5 years younger just 6 months after treatment.
Both JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus are used to correct severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and hollow cheeks. The primary differences in the two formulas are the product viscosity and their lifting power. The location and severity of wrinkles and folds will determine which filler is best suited to address and correct the area of concern.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results. It is also made with the VYCROSS® technology and can last up to 18 months.
As with any dermal fillers, injection discomfort, swelling, bruising and bumps are the most commonly reported side effects and are all temporary.
They are both save, natural and reversible hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. The differ in the technology they are made with and as such, their viscocity and longetivity will differ as well. Hyacross technology of Juvederm Ultra allows it to be injected in lips and will last up to 6 months. Vyacross technology of Juvederm Vollure makes the product more stable, causes less swelling and prolongs it’s duration or half life.
