When it comes to creating a more youthful and revitalized appearance, you’ve been trying out every skin cream and serum that’s come on the market. But no matter how much you slather on, you can’t seem to eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles that have been slowly encroaching on your face for the past several years.
If you’re ready for a powerful anti-aging weapon, it’s time to turn to Allergan, the makers of two classic injectables: Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma. Both are made up of hyaluronic acid. Both promise to enhance youth and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. But when it comes down to it, what’s the difference between the two – and which one should you pick?
Juvederm: This is the first injectable created by Allergan, and it’s certainly worthy of all its hype. Juvederm is made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that can actually be found within our own bodies. When the hyaluronic acid is injected into the treatment area, the compound quickly works to kick-start the body’s collagen production, which helps promote a longer result than Botox or Dysport.
In addition to the long-lasting results, Juvederm comes in the form of soft gel, which helps immediately enhance volume while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. For this reason, Juvederm is most popular with clients seeking to plump their lips, as the gel keeps the lips soft while adding volume.
Juvederm Voluma: Like with Juvederm, this new FDA-approved injectable derives its youth-enhancing powers from hyaluronic acid. However, the hyaluronic acid within Juvederm Voluma is much stiffer than with its predecessor, which makes this injectable idea for increasing volume within the cheeks and contouring the cheekbones. Juvederm Voluma was also created to last longer than Juvederm, which the average client going as long as 18-24 months without needing a touch-up.
Ultimately, the difference between the two injectables comes down to what areas you’d like to treat. If you want to enhance your lips, opt for Juvederm; if you’re like to volumize your cheeks, use Juvederm Voluma.
