JUVEDERM® Family Of Products at Aura Skin Spa
Aura offers moderate to severe wrinkle correction using the Juvederm® family of products. The Juvederm® family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and Aura offers Juvederm® Ultra XC and Juvederm® Voluma XC. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Each Juvederm® product is designed for a specific purpose.
JUVEDERM® ULTRA XC
Juvéderm® Ultra XC is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. As we age, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish and over time, wrinkles and folds begin to form. Juvéderm® Ultra XC offers an immediate nonsurgical option that safely and effectively corrects these moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® Ultra XC instantly smooths and corrects moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. To add fullness to the lips, Juvéderm® Ultra XC is the preferred filler for natural looking and long lasting results.
JUVEDERM® Voluma XC
Juvéderm® Voluma XC is used to lift and contour the cheek area of the face. Juvéderm® Voluma XC adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. As you age, a natural loss of volume occurs in the cheek area. Experts refer to this as age-related midface volume loss. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is the preferred filler this sign of aging.
How Does Juvéderm® Work?
Juvéderm® is an injectable gel dermal filler that is administered by our physician and injection specialists. Juvéderm® is a gel like substance – consisting of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance in your body) and is injected into the soft tissue of the dermis – the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis. This process adds volume which, in turn, diminishes the visible wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® can be administered safely anywhere in the face. Juvéderm® is very effective for filling the nasolabial folds (laugh lines that run from the nose to the corner of your mouth), enhancing the lips for a fuller look, filling the marionette lines around the mouth and great for chin wrinkles, forehead lines and for lifting and contouring the cheeks.
