Allergan strives to be a bold global pharmaceutical company with the vast majority of its products being some of the most popular products on the market and number one in the country. My favorite products come from the Allergan Aesthetics line. These products can accomplish amazing structural foundations and enhancements. My favorites are Voluma, Vollure, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, and Kybella. Let me explain why these have been the best products I have worked with for the past several years of my career.
My favorite is Voluma and Kybella. Voluma can accomplish results that no other filler in the Allergan aesthetics line can accomplish. It can rebuild and change facial structure non-surgically. Voluma has a large amount of g-prime which supports volume loss and structure in the face, especially in the cheeks, temples, jawline, and chin. It has been known to create a beautiful, desired heart-shaped facial structure and is long-lasting for up to 12 to 18 months in most areas of the face. Also, it can help soften lines as it rebuilds facial structure in the temples and cheeks by pulling up in the surrounding area of the skin to reduce laugh lines and help reduce jowls, especially when introduced into the jawline via cannula. In women chin structure can be redefined with Voluma creating the point of the heart or in Men it can be used to create a more masculine chiseled chin/jawline, filling in butt chins, and chin dimples. Though probably controversial in a blog about favorite Allergan products I also love Sculptra which is not part of the Allergan line. My favorite combination is using Voluma to get the results I need now but a few weeks later to introduce Sculptra in the temples, cheeks, and jawline to achieve the longevity I want later.

Kybella can also help define the facial structure in the jawline by reducing the submental fat pad, also known as the double chin so that your natural jawline becomes visible again and reappears as the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Kybella is very versatile and has also been used to reduce the fat around the belly, inner thighs, and bra fat regions which are very stubborn areas to reduce in other ways with traditional methods of exercise and diet.
My last two favorite products from Allergan are Vollure and Juvéderm Ultra Plus. After redefining facial structure with Voluma and Kybella, Vollure and Juvéderm Ultra Plus can be used to enhance, fine-tune and airbrush other areas of concern. My favorite is using Vollure for natural plump lips and to reduce any remaining volume loss in the laugh lines, also known as the nasal labial folds. Juvéderm Ultra Plus is also a favorite of mine because it’s very malleable and easy to use to create lush juicy lips with various techniques. It can be used to keep your natural lip shape while enhancing them, correct asymmetry and a trend called ‘keyhole design’ for the lips creates a very desired look in young Americans today. I also love to use Juvéderm Ultra Plus in the laugh lines if more volume replacement is needed and cannot be accomplished enough with Voluma alone and it is great to use in the marionette lines for a smooth defined look.
