The Differences Between Vycross and Hylacross

There are a few differences in the two products and knowing the differences will help you to decide what you need well in advance of your appointment for Juvederm in Edmonton.



Vycross  is a slightly more expensive product that has a higher price tag for good reason. Vycross is one of parent firm Allergan's 2016 range of Juvederm products. These products are bio-degradable, last longer than their predecessors, are smoother to inject and are completely reversible. There are a number of products that fall into this category, most of which you can have as a treatment when you book an appointment for Juvederm in Edmonton.

The products that use Vycross include:

Volift – best used for depressions in the nasolabial folds and gives brilliantly defined muscles

Volbella – best used around the eye areas, for tear trough and under-eye corrections or for clients requiring a very firm finish.

Voluma – best used on the cheeks and mid-volume areas.

You can find each of these products when you choose Juvederm in Edmonton through our specialists here Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre.



The main big difference between Hylacross and Vycross is that Hylacross is actually a gel. Hylacross is also known as Hyaluronic Acid Gel, which is a product specifically designed to create smoother facial fillers than clients are used to. Hylacross is not as thick in consistency as Vycross is, was developed exclusively by Allergan and is patented to the Juvederm brand... even although they are different products altogether.

The products that use Hylacross include:

Juvederm – plain Juvederm, without any other name attached, uses Hylacross over Vycross. All will have a smoother consistency than other facial fillers you will find on the market.

Ultra Plus – acts as a sponge to absorb nutrients and transport them while it fills. IS thicker than Juvederm.

XC – used on the mouth and nose to give long-lasting smoothness and natural results that the Dermatology Institute cite will last up to one full year.

Non-crossed linked fillers will break down in the body within 12 months until there is no trace of the filler left in your body. However, Vycross and Hylacross will not. We do not need to perform skin or allergy test for dermal fillers as they are hypoallergic. Moreover, they should only ever be administered by a trained medical professional.


They should not be used:

Sensitivity to Hyaluronic Acid or lidocaine.

Epilepsy, cardiac or rheumatic issues.

Taking anti-coagulants.

Swollen skin or those with hypertrophic scarring.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Side effects

There are very few known side effects to either Vycross or Hylacross. Those that we do know about are listed below. There is a very small chance that you will be sensitive to some of the ingredients, but they are hypo-allergenic treatments.


After a Hylacross treatment, side effects can include:

Itching, discoloration, lumps, and bumps in the area.

Swelling and inflammation, tenderness and redness.

Or bruising and physical pain on the treated site.


After Dermal fillers injections, side effects can include:

Pain and tenderness in the affected area.

Bruising, itchiness, and swelling.

Discoloration, lumps or bumps, and firmness.


Any side effects from either product are generally very mild and should be completely reversible should the need arise. MoreoAny pain caused will likely be as a result of breaching the dermis with the needle, rather than because of the treatment technology itself.

The most client could be back to work the next day. A little redness or tenderness is the worst to expect. Turn up for your consultation about Juvederm in Edmonton and your specialist will tell you the rest!

Cost of Juvederm

Duration of Juvederm

Treatment of either type of dermal fillers will last between 6 and 18 months. However, You will likely want to book your next session before the end of that time period. Allergan improved both Juvederm lines to last longer than normal fillers do, which perhaps goes some way to explain the price of Juvederm in Edmonton.
