There are five slightly different injectable types of JUVÉDERM® hyaluronic acid gels available for specific purposes:
Five types include:
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC
Q: What results and effects can I anticipate following a treatment with JUVÉDERM®Ultra XC ?
A: Dramatic improvement can be seen immediately following their injections This is a procedure where there is a high degree of “immediate gratification”.Swelling and bruising are possible following the injections. However, Doctor Kopelman helps to reduce the incidence of unwanted side effects by preparing you in advance of the consultation. He recommends that you discontinue Vitamin E,aspirin, fish oil, or anti-inflammatory medicine for at least ten days prior to your office visit. This will ensure him that you are off blood thinners which could contribute to facial bruising.In addition, Doctor Kopelman utilizes blunt micro-cannulas which are less traumatic to the skin compared with sharp needles.
Q:How long does JUVÉDERM®XC or other fillers last?
A: The length of time that any hyaluronic acid filler lasts is dependent on where on the face it is placed(some areas of the face move more than others which can influence the speed of absorption and duration of improvement), the depth of the injections and how many syringes are used. Doctor Kopelman is an experienced, skilled and knowledgeable injector who knows which products can achieve the most desirable effects in specfic areas. JUVÉDERM®XC lasts approximately nine months in most cases.
Q:What is the difference between JUVÉDERM®XC and JUVÉDERM® Voluma?
A: JUVÉDERM®XC feels softer beneath the skin compared to JUVÉDERM® Voluma. Therefore,JUVÉDERM®XC is an hyaluronic acid filler that ideally can be used to fill fine lines and folds around the mouth and lips.On the other hand,JUVÉDERM® Voluma is a “cross linked” denser material designed to help lift the cheeks and jawline. It is injected deeper and helps to restore lost facial volume.It is not an ideal filler for lips or for wrinkles around the mouth. The chaos of which product to use in particular areas of the face is crucial. However, ultimately,the key to obtaining a great result is to choose a physician who has the experience, discrimination and an “eye” to achieve facial balance and harmony.
