Juvéderm® Dermal Fillers With Vycross Technology


Traditionally, Juvéderm® fillers have been one size molecules with different densities. Now the
Vycross technology has added different sized molecules in the same gels to give different
consistency and flexibility. The fillers are all made of hyaluronic acid that stimulates collagen
growth and brings in fluid to the treated area, given the skin a fuller look. The new fillers have
more flexibility in the face, neck and hands to work with the skin and move with it. They also
will tend to last up to 16 months vs 9 to 12 months of some other fillers.


Juvéderm® Voluma XC: This Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler is perfect for deep lines and significant volume loss, especially in the cheeks. It is given as a deep injection to give strength to the tissues.

Juvéderm® Vollure XC: This filler is wonderful to diminish the nasolabial folds and improve cheeks and more. The Vycross technology allows it to move with your skin, therefore not giving it that “plastic” look.

Juvéderm® Volbella XC: This is the softest of all the HA gels and it is great for the lips and under the eyes. The quality of the filler decreases the risk of lumps, bruising and swelling. The use of cannulas for gel delivery further makes the procedure easier with minimal bruising, pain, swelling and less risk of arterial damage.

Cannulas Versus Needles

Dermal fillers are most commonly injected using a 27 to 32 gauge needle. The needles are perfect for getting into places that are difficult to inject. But they can also cause bruising, swelling and pain. When injecting a filler one can almost always expect swelling, bleeding and bruising. The swelling can last a few days. More severe consequences of a filler injection include injecting into anartery that could potentially block the blood flow to the area of the skin causing necrosis or worse, blindness.

To avoid significant side effects and always keeping the patient’s safety and comfort in mind, we at Eros Beauty and Wellness, like to incorporate cannulas into our regimen. Cannulas are blunt tipped needles that cause less bruising, pain and swelling than regular needles. They are also less likely to damage arteries, therefore the risk of skin necrosis and blindness is significantly decreased. The cannulas are usually longer than needles making it easier to access hard to reach places.

Both needles and cannulas are used depending on the procedure. We think you will really appreciate the comfort of both.

Am I a candidate for Juvéderm®?

People 21 years and older are candidates for fillers. A filler can be used preventively to diminish future volume loss.

What can I expect from Juvéderm®?

Any filler injection can cause pain at the site of the injection with bruising, swelling and redness. These side effects are less using cannulas.

  • Do not do strenuous exercise for 24 hours or bend and lift heavy objections.
  • Ice if needed.
  • Avoid wearing make-up for 8 to 24 hours.
  • Do use your moisturizer and sunscreen.

What Benefits Can I Expect After Juvéderm® Treatment?

Results of a filler injection can be seen immediately, but it continues to improve with time.  Your collagen will be recruited and the area will have more fluid.

What’s the Difference Between Juvéderm® and Botox®?

Dermal fillers in the Juvéderm® family consist of a soft, gel-like formation that’s ideal for adding volume to sunken areas, plumping and defining the lips, and minimizing wrinkles in the cheeks and around the mouth, chin, and neck.

Botox®, on the other hand, is a neuromodulator that creates a temporary paralysis in the muscles surrounding the eye and eyebrow area. These two products work beautifully together to provide a natural-looking, full-face rejuvenation that’s ideal for anyone who wants to look younger without surgery, sutures, or downtime.

Can I Be Allergic to Juvéderm®?

Because hyaluronic acid is biocompatible and free of animal products, there is minimal risk of experiencing allergic reactions from the Juvéderm® product line. However, there are some potential side effects to be aware of, though these are typically mild, brief, and easy to manage with at-home remedies such as ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication.

You might experience side effects such as:

  • Redness
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Lumps and bumps
  • Bruising
  • Itching

How Long Will My Juvéderm® Injections Last?

You may already know dermal fillers aren’t permanent because your body eventually metabolizes the product. While people’s metabolisms work at different speeds, we typically suggest scheduling maintenance treatments every six to 16 months. Dr. Eros can help give you a better idea of how long your Juvéderm® can last based on which areas you’re having treated.

What Happens If I Don’t Like My Juvéderm® Results?

When you choose an experienced injector such as Dr. Eros to enhance your appearance with dermal fillers and lip injections in San Diego, you’re increasing the chances that you’ll be pleased with the outcome. However, if you’re unsatisfied for whatever reason, a product called hyaluronidase can quickly reverse the results by dissolving hyaluronic acid.

How Much Do Juvéderm® Injections Cost?

The total cost of your Juvéderm® injections in San Diego will depend on how many units of the product you’ll need to achieve your cosmetic goals. Dr. Eros will go over this with you in your private, one-on-one consultation and give you an accurate cost estimate after asking you specific questions about your concerns.

“I have been going to Dr. Eros for Botox® and facial fillers for about a year now. She has a large well appointed office with a friendly knowledgable staff. Dr. Eros continually provides solid results with great pricing. She always has a light touch, never leaves any bruising on me, and most importantly my Juvéderm® always looks well balanced and even. I have been to many other beauty clinics and not experienced the same positive results I consistently receive from Dr. Eros and her staff.”
