What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a dermal filler: a hyaluronic acid-based injectable treatment that supplements the body’s natural hyaluronic acid (which diminishes with age) to help restore structure and volume in aging skin. A remarkably improved, more youthful look can be achieved with even just one session. Using innovative Hylacross™ technology, Juvéderm gels are versatile and offer a smooth, malleable consistency for enhanced results.

Restore Your Skin with Juvéderm: How it Works

Young skin looks fresh, plump, and supple due to a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which supports healthy collagen and overall skin structure and volume. As the body ages, natural hyaluronic acid production slows down and the skin starts to lose that fresh, supple quality. Lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin develop soon after. When injected, Juvéderm replenishes the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin and restores a more youthful, fresh appearance by plumping up the skin from underneath — thereby smoothing lines and wrinkles. 

Which areas of the face is Juvéderm used to treat?

Juvéderm helps to smooth wrinkles and restore lost facial volume in various areas of the face. Facial volume is lost as a natural part of the aging process, resulting in hollows or sunken spots in the cheeks, under the eyes, or in other places.

Juvéderm is used to restore this lost volume and achieve a plumper, more supple appearance in the following areas:

  • Lips
  • Lines and wrinkles around the mouth 
  • Hollow or sunken cheeks
  • Marionette lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds from the corners of the mouth to the sides of the nose

The Juvéderm Line of Fillers: Which is Right for You?

The Juvéderm line is available in several custom formulas, each developed to treat a specific facial area:

  • Juvéderm XC: Addresses lines and wrinkles around nose and mouth
  • Juvéderm Ultra: Corrects mild to moderate lines and wrinkles and delivers subtle lip augmentation 
  • Juvéderm Ultra Plus: Corrects deeper wrinkles, lines, and hollows. Provides volume and lift for the cheeks and jawline, and lips
  • Juvéderm Voluma XC: Developed to correct age-related loss of volume in the cheeks for a more youthful appearance
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC: Adds fullness and volume to thinning lips and creates definition
  • Juvéderm Vollure XC: The perfect filler for laugh lines and marionette lines
  • Juvéderm Volbella: Corrects fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes; improves the lips and the lip border

Preparing for your Juvéderm treatment

To prepare for your Juvéderm treatment, do not drink alcohol or take blood-thinning medications in the days leading up to your injections. Stay out of the sun and avoid any type of treatment that might irritate your skin, such as exfoliating treatments or chemical peels.

We will start with a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and review your medical history. We will evaluate your skin and recommend the best dermal filler treatment for you from our wide range of options. Each filler has unique characteristics and benefits. If your aesthetic goals would be better achieved with a filler other than Juvéderm, we will recommend the best filler option for you.

How long will my results last?

You will be smoother, plumper skin immediately after your Juvéderm treatment. You will notice that wrinkles and lines fade, and your skin is smoother, plumper, and more supple. After about two weeks, you will see the final effects. From there, you will enjoy long-lasting results for up to 18 months. As time passes, your body will naturally and safely reabsorb the filler as the soft volume slowly fades. At that point, you can renew your results with a follow-up appointment.
