There is a science and artistry to rejuvenating the face with cosmetic injectables. Part of the process requires an educated, experienced, skilled injector with a keen eye for detail. The other component is having the right tools to achieve the desired aesthetic goal. The JUVÉDERM® Collection of dermal fillers features a comprehensive and innovative palette of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers specifically designed to address different areas of the face. Although excellent, if used alone to correct and enhance the area they are formulated for, many can be combined to achieve an even better, more impactful result. Here are some dermal filler “power couple” favorites of the Refinery Skin Clinic Injection Specialists!
Perfect Your Profile with JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC + VOLUX® XC
Most people are familiar with the concept of filler in the lips and cheeks, but the chin? As it turns out, your chin has a MAJOR impact on how balanced your face appears. A recessed chin that sits far back from the tip of the nose can make the lower face appear weak and undefined.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is FDA-approved to improve the shape and projection of the chin to
bring it into optimal balance with the rest of the face.
What is a beautiful chin without a beautifully contoured jawline to go with it!? JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC is the first and only FDA-approved HA filler for improving lost definition in the jawline—with lasting results. JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC can help achieve the look you want from all angles.
Combining JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC and VOLUX® XC in a single treatment can significantly enhance the appearance of the lower face and your profile. This combination balances the chin with the rest of your facial features and adds covet-worthy contour to your jawline!
Makeover Your Midface with JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC + VOLLURE® XC
Picture a youthful face. Do you see how it almost appears as if an inverted triangle is overlaid on the face with two corners on the cheekbones and the last corner coming to a point on the chin? This shape is called the triangle of youth. As we age, the triangle tends to flip upside down due to the loss of collagen, elastin, bone, muscle, and fat in our faces. As a result, skin begins to sag, and the heaviness or weight of the triangle rests on our lower face. This time period is when many people express concern about deep lines that run from the corner of their nose to the corners of their mouth, aka “parenthesis, or nasolabial folds,” flattened cheeks, and the beginning of jowls in the lower face.
The combination of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC in the cheeks with VOLLURE® XC is a fantastic duo to refresh the midface, which indirectly improves the appearance of the lower face as well! VOLUMA® XC is FDA-approved to restore lift, fullness, and contour to the cheeks for up to two years. VOLLURE® XC is FDA-approved to soften and smooth the parenthesis lines around the mouth for up to 18 months. Together, these two fillers can turn back the clock on an aging midface with natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Love Your Lips with JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC + VOLBELLA® XC
Sometimes, the goal of putting filler in your lips is all about correction. Other times, it is all about enhancement and fun! Luckily, the JUVÉDERM® Collection has options that suit every desire when it comes to lip fillers!
The combination of JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC with VOLBELLA® XC is a popular power couple for lip enhancement. Suppose a client wants to start with subtle volume in the body of their lips but also needs added definition and support to the border of the lips. In that case, their injection specialist may use soft and light VOLBELLA® XC in the body and the more robust ULTRA XC in the border of the lips to create a beautiful balance.
Many clients, even those who aren’t or never were smokers, suffer from pesky little lines that feather out from their lips. These are caused by collagen breakdown due to the repeated contractions of the muscles that control our mouth. In this case, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC may be the better filler to add more substantial volume and support to the body of the lips. Then, VOLBELLA® XC can be injected to smooth out the smoker’s lines around the lips.
Regardless of how they are combined, these two fillers can significantly improve the volume, balance, and appearance of your lips!
