Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a thicker gel that restores volume to areas that are experiencing significant volume loss. It is particularly used to soften the appearance of marionette lines (from mouth onto chin) and laugh lines at cheeks. It can also restore volume to sagging cheeks that have lost much of their elasticity and collagen or subtly restore a drooping jawline.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and foremost product available to add volume to your cheeks. It was designed specifically for use in the cheeks to lift and add volume to hollow or sagging cheeks. This non-invasive liquid facelift targets the mid-face, rejuvenating contours and smoothing parenthesis lines. This treatment is ideal for those who have lost much of the elasticity in the skin at the cheeks and want to restore a more youthful appearance with a subtle, natural-looking lift. When performed by Dr. O’Connell you can expect nothing less than beautiful results.
Juvéderm Volbella XC is a thinner dermal filler that adds subtle plumpness to the lips, and can smooth light laugh lines around the nose and mouth. It helps the skin to look radiant with moisture-attracting hyaluronic acid in a smooth and versatile solution.

This dermal filler is ideal for anyone who sees the development of lines around their mouth or nose that they wish to correct without surgery.
What are dermal fillers?
To talk about our dermal fillers, we need to first discuss something that our bodies produce naturally that gives us fresh, youthful looking skin. That natural product is hyaluronic acid, which is produced in abundance in our youth – but less and less as we age. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm are hyaluronic acid-based gels that are non-allergenic and eventually broken down and absorbed by your body. These gels are designed to target specific areas of the face or body for specific cosmetic purposes. Dermal fillers are non-invasive injectables that can create a younger, lifted rejuvenated appearance.
What they do
Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm help to restore or add volume to aspects of your face or even other parts of your body, such as the hands. They create a rejuvenated and revitalized appearance while adding moisture and potentially stimulating collagen production.

How dermal fillers differ from BOTOX
Although both fillers and BOTOX can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, they go about it in different ways. Fillers add volume to an area which can tighten the skin above, reducing or softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX works differently, not by adding volume, but by relaxing the surface muscles below the skin. This inhibits wrinkles and lines from showing or forming when you talk or move your brows in the areas treated with BOTOX. The results from fillers are also visible directly after treatment, while skin rejuvenation with BOTOX requires several days to achieve the smoothing effect.
