How Juvéderm from your doctor in New Orleans can bring out the best in your faceBy Dr. Mary Lupo
What is Juvéderm?There are many excellent dermal fillers, each with its own unique benefits. Juvéderm is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally present in the body. Unlike collagen-based fillers, Juvéderm does not require pretesting for allergies.
The Juvéderm family of dermal fillers includes:
- JUVÉDERM® XC – This injectable gel is used to replenish lost volume and enhance facial contours. It is used for correcting nasolabial folds and similar facial wrinkles.
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC – This ultra-smooth formula is ideal for fine lines and delicate tissue augmentation. It is specifically intended for enhancing the lips and correcting wrinkles in the perioral area.
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC – This is the thickest and most resilient of the Juvéderm fillers, ideal for deeper injections in areas with significant volume loss. It was formulated for improvement in the cheek area, with long lasting results.
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC – This injectable gel is use in the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids, commonly referred to as perioral lines, in adults over the age of 21. Dr. Lupo was an investigator in the FDA clinical trial for VOLBELLA and is a local trainer on the product.
How Juvéderm helpsWith age and cumulative sun damage, skin begins to lose moisture, collagen, elastin and the hyaluronic acid in the dermis. Simultaneously, the underlying fatty layer of tissue thins. This volume loss leaves your skin loose and wrinkled, much like clothing that is a little too large. Fillers such as Juvéderm replace that volume, correcting wrinkles and restoring more youthful and attractive facial contours.
