Juvederm is one of the most popular cosmetic dermal fillers on the market. If you’re leaning toward getting a facial filler to add volume to your face to look younger, you should learn about your options. There are various fillers available in the Juvederm line, some of which are still quite new.

Juvederm and Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

All the Juvederm products available on the market are made from hyaluronic acid molecules. This is a sugar content that is naturally found in the skin to keep it youthful and hydrated. Products like Voluma, Volbella and Vollure, Juvederm XC and Juvederm Ultra all contain hyaluronic acid molecules. Those molecules are cross-linked into the fillers to create different consistencies depending on the specific treatment.

The regular Juvederm products use cross-linking of hyaluronic acid molecules of uniform weights, which is known as Hylacross. Meanwhile, the treatments that have the “Vol” prefix are cross-linked at lower weights, known as Vycross technology.

Fillers Make a Subtle Difference in the Way They Work

There are differences between the original Juvederm fillers and the newer ones. These differences are present due to the way the hyaluronic acid molecules are arranged. Juvederm XC and Vollure are ideal for smoothing out smile lines, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. In spite of those similarities, Vollure differs a bit as it can be more deeply injected to treat deeper wrinkles. It is also longer lasting than Juvederm XC.

Differences Between Voluma, Volbella and Vollure

Voluma is an injectable filler that is made up of the thickest gel of all of the “Vol” products. This makes it best for deep injections to treat particularly stubborn frown lines and wrinkles and gives good volume. Volbella is the thinnest gel, which makes it better for delicate areas like under the eyes. It’s also used for lip injections to plump up too-thin lips. Meanwhile, Vollure is somewhere in between and can be injected into nasolabial folds and allow for better, more natural facial expressions.

Which Dermal Filler is Best for Me?

When you decide that you want to get a cosmetic treatment involving dermal fillers, you can discuss with the provider what might be your best option. Generally, which filler you choose depends on what you want to correct. It’s also important to find the right provider to perform the treatment on you. You want someone who has formal medical training and extensive knowledge of facial anatomy as well as skill in creating the outcome you want. Of course, they should also have experience with all dermal filler options.

With your provider’s help, you will be able to choose the dermal filler that is best for your needs, skin type and preference. Best of all, these fillers will deliver great long-term results.
