If the decision to undergo biorevitalization has been made, the question arises: which biorevitalizant is best to use? All of them are capable of rejuvenating the skin of the face, getting rid of nasolabial folds and correcting inaccuracies, however, when it comes to using this or that drug on yourself, you want to be especially careful. What is the difference between two biorevitalizants with a very similar name - Juvederm and Surgiderm?

Description of Juvederm and Surgiderm fillers

Both of these drugs are produced by the Irish company Allergan, which is a standard in aesthetic cosmetology. The brand positions its products as biorevitalizants for contour plastic surgery of soft facial tissues.

With their help, you can restore elasticity to the skin and get rid of wrinkles, outline contours and add missing volume. A pleasant addition to the action of correctors is the hydration and healing of the dermis.

Surgiderm and Juvederm fillers are developed based on hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin, which significantly reduces the risk of allergic reactions. This is explained by the fact that our body itself produces a small amount of hyaluronate for its own needs, so the additional introduction of such a substance is not perceived by it as aggression.

As an alternative to Juvederm or Surgiderm, you can choose Restylane fillers from the same manufacturer or the Austrian Princess. These drugs also contain hyaluronic acid and are completely biocompatible.

All correctors are produced in disposable syringes equipped with a needle with a diameter of 27–30G ½. The main advantage of these gels is that they are flexible and allow you to get an excellent aesthetic effect. The result, if necessary, can always be corrected by additional administration of the drug, without waiting for the previous portion to be absorbed. Once the action is completed, the funds are completely eliminated from the body.

Composition, properties and varieties of Juvederm

Juvederm, USA, is a filler designed to correct the shape of the face, smooth out wrinkles and nasolabial folds, increase volume and improve the shape of the lips. Thus, the filler can be used at any age. For older ladies, the drug will help cope with the first signs of aging in the mouth area, and for young ladies - to give their lips a seductive shape and volume.

The description says that Juvederm contains very high concentrations of hyaluronic acid and Lidocaine. That is why it is used in cases where maximum effect is needed.

The product has the consistency of a liquid, viscous gel and is perfectly integrated into tissues without causing irritation, bumps or side effects.

The Juvederm® trademark combines 6 variants of the drug with different properties

  1. Juvederm 1st generation. The group includes several gels that differ in composition density - 18, 24, 30 (the higher the number, the higher the viscosity), as well as forms with the HV prefix, meaning maximum concentration.
  2. Juvederm Ultra. Drugs with a relatively recent history. Created on the basis of 3D MATRIX and represented by subtypes Ultra 2, 3, 4 (efficiency increases with increasing number). There is also an Ultra Plus corrector, but in Russia it is practically not used.
  3. Juvederm Hydrate. Niche filler focused on biorevitalization and skin hydration.
  4. Juvederm Voluma. The gel is designed to create volume and contour the face.

In 2011, the Juvederm® collection was replenished with a unique biorevitalizant created specifically for lip correction - Juvederm Ultra Smile filler. When creating this drug, the company’s specialists were looking for a way to make the mouth clear and as natural as possible.

Two years later, another new Juvederm product appeared - Volbella with Lidocaine. The product is an innovative development, is harmless and has a long-term effect.

Composition, properties and varieties of Surjiderm

Surgiderm (France) is a plastic gel designed for gentle correction of the face and lips. The new product was developed by the French company Corneal, which is part of Allergan.

The filler has a high density, but at the same time it looks natural. Hyaluronic acid, which is part of the drug, has a special 3D matrix structure that provides resistance to hyaluronidase and prolongs the effect of the gel.

Moreover, the structural features of Surgiderm allow it to be combined with any fillers based on natural substances. The filler can be used when the previous drug has not yet dissolved. It is this quality that makes it a favorite remedy for many cosmetologists.

The Surgiderm® line includes 6 correctors with different degrees of density:

  1. Surgiderm 18 is a low-viscosity liquid gel. Used to correct facial wrinkles.
  2. Surgiderm 24XP is a drug with good density. Suitable for reducing the depth of nasolabial folds, smoothing out shallow wrinkles and enlarging lips.
  3. Surgiderm 30 is a highly concentrated filler. It is used to eliminate pronounced defects and replenish missing volume in the cheekbones, nose and lips. The 30XP filler has a similar, but longer lasting effect. This viscous and durable preparation is ideal for eyebrow correction.
  4. Surgilips is a biorevitalizant designed specifically for lip augmentation and elimination of purse-string wrinkles.
  5. Surgilift Plus is a niche gel for biorevitalization.

In addition to Surgiderm Surjilips, 24XP, 30 and 30XP options can be used to correct lips.

The effect of administering the drug can be seen immediately after the procedure. During the first 2-3 days, slight swelling, hematomas and redness at the injection sites are possible. The corrector can be used from 18 years of age.

What's the difference?

In fact, only the manufacturers of cosmetics differ, but this does not mean that Juvederm Hydrate and Surgiderm are completely identical and you can prescribe one or the other yourself. An experienced specialist will be able to competently analyze the clinical picture, compatibility, metric indicators and other factors, and then draw the right conclusions about the choice of a particular drug.

This or that filler may be indicated for age-related changes in the skin, with the appearance of facial wrinkles, to solve the problem of dehydrated and dry, stressed tired skin, flabby décolleté or sagging skin on the hands. Sometimes, to restore elasticity and freshness after summer sun exposure, a cosmetologist may also recommend a certain type of filler.

Common features and differences of fillers

Which filler is best for lip augmentation? To answer this question, let's look at what the drugs have in common and what are the differences. Let's take Juvederm Ultra Smile and Surgiderm Surjilips for comparison.

Comparative table of filler characteristics

Features of the fillerThanks to the analgesic component, the patient does not feel pain. Swelling and hematomas occur less frequently. Surgiderm requires the application of an anesthetic. The high density of the drug allows it to be used to eliminate lip asymmetry.
Final resultThe gel gives a more natural effect. It is almost not felt on the lips and does not cause discomfort. The lips feel denser, the enlargement effect is well expressed. The filler is resistant to enzymes and heat.

The table shows that there is no big difference between the drugs. By the way, when calculating the price of the service, pay attention to the amount of composition in the disposable syringe - there is more of it in Surjiderm. At the same time, do not forget that additional anesthesia and the work of a cosmetologist must be added to the cost of the Surgiderm lips filler. As a result, payment for services will be almost the same.

Contraindications and side effects

Being derivatives of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm and Surgiderm are completely safe for our body. The following cases are contraindications for this type of drug:

  • low blood clotting;
  • exacerbation of chronic diseases;
  • inflammatory processes at the site of proposed injections;
  • pregnancy and lactation;
  • individual sensitivity to the components of the gel;
  • tendency to form scars;
  • herpes virus.

Although the unique hyaluronate treatment provides good protection against the typical complications of contouring, some problems do occur.

For example, these:

  • swelling;
  • compactions, bumps, fibrosis in the treatment area;
  • hematomas;
  • inflammation at the injection site;
  • redness;
  • gel protrusion;
  • vascular injuries.

Do not consider all of the above symptoms to be harmful to your health. From a medical point of view, most of them are nothing to worry about. As a rule, such troubles go away on their own within 8–10 days. But if, after this period, unwanted reactions continue to bother you, consult a doctor.

Reviews from real people

Marina, 35 years old, Nizhnevartovsk:

To enlarge my lips I used Juvederm Ultra Smile. In the evening after the procedure, the mouth was swollen, the skin around was red, and the next morning bruises appeared. The lips were like someone else’s, strange articulation appeared. The next day it became better, the hematomas turned pale, the swelling subsided, but the right corner of the mouth rose higher than the left. I had to go to the salon. The doctor looked, injected filler, did a massage and voila... The lips became smooth, lush and elastic.

Svetlana, 38 years old, Syktyvkar:

But my opinion about the procedure is negative. After the introduction of Surgiderm Lips, my lips seemed to be split open from the inside and began to burn. The swelling lasted for 6 days, itching appeared. I went to the hospital. A dermatologist examined and prescribed antibiotics. She said there was an infection. I don’t know, maybe it’s my own fault, the dirt was brought in, or the cosmetologist didn’t do her job well.

Lara, 45 years old, Stavropol:

With age, the lips somehow dried out, became wrinkled, and the corners drooped. I decided to pierce Surgiderm. Good gel, lasts a long time, but thick. I got bumps. It was visually imperceptible, but felt well with the tongue. I didn’t clean it up, I just walked on. The effect, in principle, was not bad. Now I will administer Juvederm. The cosmetologist says it is gentler.

Common features: purpose of products

These products actually have quite a lot of similar characteristics, which is perhaps why choosing one of them is difficult even for professionals in their field. First of all, it should be noted that they are developed and manufactured by the same companies. The original creator is the French company Corneal, the official dealer is the American concert Allergan.

Both Juvederm and Sujiderm are lines of cosmetic products that include a range of fillers. Depending on the type, their tasks include:

  • skin hydration;
  • elimination of wrinkles, folds and irregularities of the epidermis;
  • shaping the facial contour;
  • building up additional volume of soft tissue (including lip surgery).

The auxiliary advantages of correctors are the overall improvement of the skin condition, giving it a healthier, more even color, radiance and softness.

Answers on questions

What should you not do after lip correction with fillers?

According to cosmetologists, one of the reasons for the occurrence of adverse reactions is non-compliance with post-procedure rules. So, what is prohibited during the first day after injections:

  • use decorative cosmetics;
  • stay in the sun for a long time;
  • kiss;
  • drink alcohol.

During the rehabilitation period, it is not recommended to consume hot food or drinks. It is advisable to refrain from visiting a solarium, bathhouse or sauna for 12–14 days from the date of filler injection.

The limitations discussed apply not only to Juvederm or Surgiderm, but also to other hyaluronic fillers.

What to do if lip augmentation fails?

Gels based on hyaluronate, such as Juvederm and Surgiderm, are good because they dissolve on their own and leave the body. True, you will have to wait a long time for this - 8-12 months.

If you don't want to waste so much time, there are other ways to fix the problem - you just need to speed up the metabolism in the lip area. You can do this as follows:

  • inject hyaluronidase into the treatment area. True, getting rid of Surgiderm in this way will be problematic, since it is resistant to the substance;
  • resemble physical procedures - electroporation, Darsonval, microcurrents;
  • visit a bathhouse or sauna;
  • put a hot compress on your lips.

Practice shows that hyaluronic fillers are “utilized” faster in girls who have to talk a lot and for a long time - announcers, teachers, translators.

Is it possible to buy Juvederm or Surgiderm at a pharmacy and inject it at home?

No, you should not engage in amateur activities. Although fillers are considered medical drugs, they are unlikely to be sold in a pharmacy or specialty store. Only official Allergan distributors distribute such products. Moreover, the quality of fillers and the activities of distributors must be confirmed by appropriate licenses and certificates.

If you are lucky enough to purchase the filler elsewhere, it is more than likely that it is a fake. The introduction of such a drug can end in big trouble. And under no circumstances do this manipulation at home. Lip correction is a salon procedure and should be performed by a professional.

Let's sum it up

To understand what is best for your lips - Juvederm or Surgiderm, you must first of all pay attention to your health, since Lidocaine often causes allergies. Other factors can also play a determining role - age, presence of a previous filler, bad experience. Therefore, it is better to entrust the choice of filler to a specialist.
