What’s the Difference Between Juvéderm and Revanesse?
Which is better: Juvéderm or Revanesse?
Dermal fillers have come a long way in recent years, with many folks turning to them to enhance their appearance and boost confidence. Among the many options available, two superstars are Juvéderm and Revanesse — although comparable, both of these fillers have unique features and specific formulations that are geared toward different aesthetic needs. Here at LaserAway, we offer one type of Revanesse filler, LIPS+, and three different Juvéderm fillers — Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Voluma XC. These dermal fillers are designed to enhance specific parts of the face.
So, which one should you choose for your SkinFitness™ goals? Let’s explore five key similarities and differences to help you make an informed decision.
1. What They’re Made Of: The Base Components
Similarity: Both Juvéderm and Revanesse are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. What is hyaluronic acid, you might ask? It’s a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps maintain volume and hydration.
Difference: The way they’re formulated varies. To get all technical (you ready?), Revanesse LIPS+ and Juvéderm Ultra XC are “softer” formulas that are very similar to each other and are ideal for filling delicate areas like the lips. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a “moderately robust” formula that helps add structure to thicker soft tissue, like marionette lines and nasolabial folds. And Juvéderm Voluma XC is a firmer formula designed to mimic body tissue responsible for structure, like the cheekbones. We offer all of the above formulas at our LaserAway clinics.
2. Longevity: How Long Do They Last?
Similarity: All of these fillers are designed to provide long-lasting results.
Difference: The actual duration of results can vary between different formulas. Juvéderm typically lasts 12 to 24 months, depending on the specific product used. Revanesse LIPS+ usually lasts around 12 months. Remember that individual results can depend on how much of the syringe you use. In general, Revanesse comes with a little more product in the syringe than Juvéderm, which is ideal for those who want more volume or to treat both the lips and some nasolabial folds.
3. Treatment Areas: Where Can You Use Them?
Similarity: Both dermal fillers can treat common areas of concern, such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sunken cheeks, and lip augmentation.
Difference: Juvederm offers a range of products tailored to specific areas. For instance, Juvéderm Volume XC is ideal for cheek enhancement, while Juvéderm Ultra XC is designed for lip augmentation. Revanesse LIPS+ is also intended to be used on more delicate areas of the face, like the lips.
4. Side Effects: What To Expect Post-Treatment?
Similarity: Like all cosmetic treatments, both fillers have potential side effects. Common ones include mild swelling and bruising at the injection site.
Difference: The intensity and duration of side effects might vary depending on the specific product used. However, most side effects are mild and subside within a week and up to two weeks. Always consult with one of our skilled licensed nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician associates about potential risks and side effects and how to manage them.
5. The Results: Natural or Dramatic?
Similarity: Both Juvéderm and Revanesse aim to provide natural-looking results, enhancing your features without making it apparent that you’ve had “work done.”
Difference: Juvéderm has different formulations depending on the area of the face you wish to enhance — it can cater to subtle and dramatic transformations based on your desired outcome. Revanesse LIPS+ is specifically designed to enhance your lips, nasolabial folders, and marionette lines, providing natural-looking results.
