A car is a car is a car, until you pull up in a 1986 mini-van next to a 2018 decked out Range Rover— then suddenly not everything seems so parallel. Similar to how there are different makes and models of cars, there are similar makes of popular dermal fillers like Juvederm. Here at Dr. Gregory Wiener’s office, we offer both Juvederm and Juvederm Volbella— each of which has their unique benefits.
Juvederm is the first filler that joined the Juvederm family— now which has expanded into a variety of different Juvederm collections. Made of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm works to help your skin retain moisture and softness, while also restoring volume to areas of the face such as the cheeks, mouth, and lips. As a natural component found in your body, hyaluronic acid helps your skin retain moisture, delivers nutrients to the skin, and adds volume. Lasting up to one year on average, Juvederm has continued to be a popular temporary filler for patients of all ages.
As the most recent addition to the Juvederm family, Juvederm Volbella’s primary target is the lips. Juvederm Volbella is designed to treat patients who want fuller lips and a smoother complexion without looking too visible. By giving patients more subtle results, Juvederm Volbella is gaining more and more popularity. In fact, 80% of patients treated with Juvederm Volbella experienced improved satisfaction with their lips one year later. And, according to that same study, patients also needed less product after the first year to obtain the same results.
By injecting your lips and skin with one of these fillers, you can get results that last for one full year on average— which is a relatively long time in relation to other injectables.
