Allergan has recently developed several new fillers using Vycross technology. Vycross technology blends several molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. This technology potentiates the duration of the products. The three products include Voluma for volume loss and cheek augmentation, Vollure for the treatment of moderate nasolabial folds and marionettes, and Volbella for lips and perioral lines. Juvaderm Ultra and Juvaderm Ultra Plus are also available. All Juvaderm products contain lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the treatment.
Voluma, Vollure and Volbella can be effective for 12-24 months depending on the product.
Juvaderm Ultra Plus: $550
Juvaderm Voluma: $750
Juvaderm Vollure: $625
Volbella 0.5cc: $375
Radiesse is another calcium-based filler and can be used for the same treatment areas. Radiesse cannot be used in the lips. Radiesse is effective for 9-18 months.
