Dandelion Medical Aesthetics

is proud to offer the robust family of

Juvéderm dermal fillers!

Which one is right for me?

The number question at Dandelion Medical Aesthetics is, “Which filler is right for me?”  While you will always have a consultation before any procedure to choose the best product to reach you treatment goals, it’s always good to have a little information ahead of time to help you plan which product to use. Dandelion Medical Aesthetics exclusively offers the robust JUVÉDERM family of dermal fillers with products to address very specific concerns as well as products available to be used in multiple areas of the face. To clarify, “XC” indicates the filler has added lidocaine (the same medication used to numb the mouth at the dentist) to make the injection procedure more comfortable.

Once deciding which dermal filler to use, the amount of filler to be used is next on the list.  In some cases, a single syringe can be all that is needed.  However, additional syringes may be necessary to reach your cosmetic goals.  Filling any given area of the face to an optimal level, which may mean more than a single syringe, will substantially increase the longevity of the the dermal filler.

While intended to be informative, this information does not substitute for medical advice and it is only after a consultation that a treatment plan can be decided upon, including the anticipated results of your treatment and the number of syringes recommended.

Juvéderm® Ultra XC

Juvéderm Ultra XC is generally best used in the lips because it is softer than Juvéderm Ultra Plus.  In many cases, it is first injected into the border of the lips to make the lips more defined and then is injected into the body of the lip to make the lips more full and plump. Juvéderm Ultra XC will last between 6-12 months.

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC can be used in multiple areas of the face; the cheeks, smile lines (nasolabial folds), lines extending down the chin from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines) and the lips.  Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC allows for total facial rejuvenation!  The consistency is comparable to pudding and therefore allows the face to move naturally without an overly augmented look.  Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC will last 6-12 months.

Volbella® XC

Volbella® XC is also indicated for the lips, specifically vertical lip lines (sometimes called “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s line’s”).  It is a beautiful product that can be injected just under the skin without being seen to fill pesky vertical lines as well add volume to the lips.  While most of JUVÉDERM’s family of fillers come in 1 mL syringes, Volbella® XC is supplied in both 0.5 mL syringes as well as 1 mL syringe to offering the option of dramatic results without the “overly filled” look many people fear.  Volbella® XC can also be used to fill hollows under the eyes (referred to as the “tear trough”) in select patients.  Not all patients are candidates for dermal fillers in the tear trough due to overall predicted outcome. Dandelion Medical Aeasthetic’s nurse practitioner or nurse will decide if this area can appropriately be treated during the consultation portion of your visit.  Volbella® has been shown to last up to one year.

Voluma® XC

Voluma® XC is best utilized in the mid-face, along the cheek bones as well as the lower face to augment the jaw or camouflage the jowls.  Voluma® XC is much like Jello, standing firm on it’s own, just what you want over the cheek or jaw bone.  By strategically adding volume to the cheeks, a subtle fullness not only compliments the area, but also lifts laxity of the lower face with optimal treatment. Optimal treatment often includes more than a single syringe of Voluma®.  Voluma® can last 18 months.

Vollure® XC

After being available in Europe for many years as Volift®, Vollure® XC was approved by the FDA in March 2017 for use in the United States.  It works very much the same as Ultra Plus but lasts much longer!  Vollure’s results remain consistent for up to 18 months.
