Building on the strong heritage of the original JUVÉDERM® Ultra range, the latest generation of JUVÉDERM® hyaluronic acid (HA)dermal fillers uses unique VYCROSS™ technology to create the most natural looking results yet.
WHAT IS VYCROSS™ TECHNOLOGY?
VYCROSS™ is a proprietary technology that combines low and high‐molecular‐weight HA to make a tightly cross‐linked gel.This tight network of HA chains means that the gel has a longer duration and low water uptake, resulting in minimal gel swelling and enables the gel properties of each JUVÉDERM®product to be individually tailored, allowing for natural facial movement and subtle looking results.
HOW DOES THE JUVÉDERM® RANGE WORK?
The JUVÉDERM® range of dermal fillers are administered by injection directly into selected areas of the face, to temporarily restore volume loss, smooth lines and fill folds. These include the lips, perioral region (mouth area) and nasolabial folds. The key product ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar that helps to maintain volume in the skin. As we age, however, the levels of HA our body produces begin to diminish, often leading to the formation of facial lines and wrinkles. The JUVÉDERM® range is designed to replenish lost levels of HA, plumping and smoothing the skin. Many of the products in the JUVÉDERM® range contain the mild local anaesthetic, lidocaine (0.3), so patients can enjoy the comfort of a gentler injection experience, compared to products with no anaesthetic ingredient.
