FDA Approves 2 NEW Juvéderm® Formulas!
Most people are familiar with Juvéderm® for filling in facial creases and eliminating lines and wrinkles. But, the Juvéderm® family of facial fillers has many other aesthetic and anti-aging uses. In the past year, the FDA has approved Juvéderm® formulas for two new cosmetic treatments.
Two of the most common appearance complaints among women and men are: (1.) dark undereye circles, and (2.) a weak, soft or sagging jawline. And, thanks to the pandemic, video-conferencing (such as Zoom meetings) have made people even more aware of facial features like these that they would like to change.
In this article the anti-aging experts discuss the two new Juvéderm® products approved by the FDA for addressing these cosmetic concerns.
Juvéderm® for Under-Eye Circles
Under-eye circles are one of the most difficult aesthetic issues to treat. This is because they are typically not caused by pigmentation that can be removed with peels, or lasers. Rather, most undereye circles are caused by visible (blueish) blood vessels beneath the skin. These circles are also often aggravated by hollow areas of fat loss that result in a sunken appearance that causes shadows to darken the area beneath the eyes.
Fatigue, stress, exhaustion of the muscles around the eye, alcohol consumption, smoking, and excessive intake of caffeinated beverages can also make dark circles under the eyes worse.
Unfortunately, cosmetic concealers rarely cover darkness under the eyes completely. But in February 2022 Allergan Aesthetics announced that the FDA has approved the use of Juvéderm® Volbella XC (in adults over the age of 21) for treating stubborn dark circles in the “infraorbital hollows” under the eyes.
Treating Under-eye Circles with Juvéderm® Volbella
The under-eye is very delicate and because it is so close to the eyes themselves, undereye treatment requires expert technique from a highly skilled medical provider. Juvéderm® Volbella XC first gained FDA approval in 2016 treating the fine vertical lines above the lips (perioral rhytids or “smokers’ lines”).
Juvéderm® Volbella XC formula has a less dense concentration of hyaluronic acid molecules, which provides a soft, smooth consistency that is ideal for treating both very fine lines in the face and the sensitive under-eye hollows. It has a thin, pliable, smooth texture that offers a natural look and feel around the lips as well as in the tear troughs.
According to clinical trial data released by Allergan Aesthetics, 90% of patients reported satisfaction with Juvéderm® Volbella XC under-eye treatment after one year – and said they would recommend the treatment to a friend.
Juvéderm® Volux for Jawlines
A defined jawline can help a man or woman look more youthful and attractive, while a receding, sagging or drooping chin can add years to one’s appearance. But, for decades, the only way to create a more defined chin was with expensive and painful plastic surgery – that came with days or weeks of downtime.
But this past year Juvéderm, the number one facial filler manufacturer in the world, released a new facial filler specifically for formulated for jawlines. New Volux facial filler can instantly achieve a more defined jawline with a just few injections – and no surgery, no downtime, and no waiting months for results.
Juvéderm® Volux – the newest filler in their Vycross family of hyaluronic dermal fillers – recently won New Treatment of the Year at the Global My-Face-My-Body Awards because it is so revolutionary!
Volux jaw filler is a very thick consistency gel injectable that doesn’t just “fill,” but also holds its form so that it can be used to shape and contour. Juvéderm Volux jaw filler is a fast and straightforward treatment, that yields immediate results with no downtime – which is why it is so popular among Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ patients.
Some people are born with hereditary “weak chins” or “receding jawlines” that they wish to augment. However, as many people age, they lose subcutaneous fat (padding under the skin), bone and muscle mass. Additionally, skin typically loses its elasticity and begins to sag as a person ages. Juvéderm® Volux offers an effective and long-lasting solution to these problems.
Treating Jawlines with Juvéderm® Volux
Juvéderm® Volux was created by Allergan specifically for “building up” the jaw and chin. It’s made of a unique, concentrated hyaluronic acid formula that is a very thick homogenized gel. Once injected, the Volux “sets” so that it looks and feels like bone.
A strong, square jawline has always been the many ideal. And Volux now enables men to achieve a stronger, more pronounced chin. And, for women, celebrities like Angelina Jolie have made sculpted, angular features a desired characteristic of female beauty. Volux jaw fillers enable women to get the defined, angular, youthful jawline – in spite of their genetics, aging, and gravity.
