VOLUMA, VOLBELLA, VOLIFT, WHAT ARE THEY?!
If you’ve ever been interested by the facial Dermal Fillers scene, you may have noticed there are quite a few different fillers have emerged in recent years, with Juvéderm leading the way!
If you’re unsure about Juvéderm Dermal Filler options, you’re not alone. Even for a regular injectable client, it can be difficult to see what’s different about each one. It also doesn’t make it any easier that Juvéderm has given their products very similar sounding names.
But if you want to learn a little more about the Juvéderm products, then please keep reading!
First things first, All Juvéderm Dermal Fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar in the skin that keeps it and us plump, hydrated and youthful!
Also something to note is that Voluma, Volbella and Volift are all products made of Vycross technology - This is where higher and lower molecular weights are cross-linked together and make them more unique than your classic Dermal Fillers. Vycross Dermal Fillers are longer-lasting, smoother to inject, biodegradable, and reversible compared to original Hylacross Dermal Fillers.
Juvederm Voluma: Contains the thickest, strongest gel which is ideal for deep injections or improving mid-face volume e.g Cheeks, Chins and Jawlines. This is the most cohesive and elastic of the Vycross range.
Juvederm Volbella: Contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel and is the least cohesive and least elastic out of the Vycross range making it preferable for the tear trough (under eyes) and crows feet treatment because it’s easy to get it into the areas it’s needed with smooth results.
Juvederm Volift: combines a 'happy medium' of durability and spreadability to treat nasolabial (nose to mouth) folds while allowing for natural facial expressions and movements. It's also great for lips adding fantastic definition/sharpness.
So what's best for you?
As Aesthetics Practitioners, having a range of specialised Dermal Fillers allows us to tailor each client's treatment for a very natural result. However as a client, knowing the small differences between Dermal Fillers isn’t nearly as important as knowing what to look for in an Injector: Medical training/certificates, in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and experience using all of the different filler products.
