Juvéderm’s newest family member, launched in January 2010, is based on the Juvéderm 3 product and is specifically targeted for use on the lips.
Allergan has manufactured the Juvederm Vycross collection by cross-linking the hyaluronic acid molecules to produce a smoother, more efficient filler. A lower concentration of hyaluronic acid can be used as a result, using only 10% high molecular weight HA, compared to 100% with most other fillers. This enables the treatment to less uncomfortable, with less swelling after treatment and longer-lasting, natural looking results.
Just 1 treatment is designed to improve skin quality for up to 9 months on the face, neck, décolletage and hands. It improves the even texture of your skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, enhancing hydration and elasticity.
This injectable gel is particularly suitable for application to the lips, helping to add volume and smooth the look of perioral lines, often called ‘lipstick lines’.
