Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments currently available, second to only botulinum toxin injections such as Botox and Xeomin. There are many types of dermal fillers, all of which have different uses and treat specific aesthetic concerns. The most popular dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin and connective tissues in mammals, including humans. One of the most trusted names in fillers is Juvederm, a company that provides a long list of products in its filler lineup. Juvederm XC is the go-to filler for many cosmetic concerns and can treat a wide range of areas.
Juvederm XC is a popular filler that can treat a wide number of areas on the face, including deep facial lines (particularly of the nasolabial folds and lips), thin or aged lips, and wrinkles on the cheeks and areas around the nose. Prior to the injection, the skin is numbed with local anesthesia to prevent any discomfort. After numbing the treatment area, Juvederm is injected just beneath the surface of the skin (subcutaneous) until the desired results are achieved. A cold compress, such as ice, is applied to the treated area following the procedure. It is normal to experience some swelling or redness in the treated area for 24 to 48 hours after the injections; applying ice can help to minimize the swelling.
There are very few risks or side effects associated with Juvederm; some patients experience mild swelling or bruising at the site of injection, which should clear up on its own within a few days.
Juvederm XC and Volbella are inherently similar in composition as they are manufactured by the same company; however, there are important distinctions between the two fillers, including the area of administration, duration of results, composition, and conditions treated.
• Areas Treated: Juvederm can be used on the face, including the lips, cheeks, and area around the nose; Volbella can be used on the lips and area around the mouth.
• Duration of Results: Both Juvederm XC and Volbella produce results that last around 12 months; this is highly dependent on patient physiology, metabolism and lifestyle.
• Composition: Both Juvederm products are composed of a hyaluronic acid-based gel; Volbella uses a thinner version of this substance to allow for a more prominent plumping effect. Products appended with XC contain lidocaine; this numbing agent is added to minimize discomfort.
• Conditions Treated: Juvederm XC can treat wrinkles, fine lines, facial folds and sunken or hollow cheeks; Juvederm Volbella is primarily used to treat thin lips, asymmetrical lips, and facial folds around the mouth.
Juvederm XC is a versatile filler that can treat a wide number of age-related conditions; it is primarily used for the treatment of laugh lines or smile lines that develop along the sides of the mouth. This type of injection can also be used for lip augmentation, although a clinician may recommend using Juvederm Volbella for concerns regarding the lips. Furthermore, patients who seek to ameliorate wrinkles under the eyes or on the forehead may be recommended to try another type of Juvederm product.
