JUVÉDERM is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the United States. Each product adds volume and reduces signs of aging in a different area of the face, so the collection can address many skin concerns.
JUVÉDERM® XC can help correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, especially lines around the nose and mouth. We also use it to fill vertical lip lines and plump the lips. Results typically last about 6 months to 1 year.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area to address age-related midface volume loss. It creates natural-looking and long-lasting results for up to 2 years.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an injectable gel used to enhance the lips and correct “lipstick lines.” It is injected directly into and around the lips with an ultra-fine needle. Results can last up to 1 year.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC can be injected into areas of the face that have moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. This flexible, cohesive gel gives the face firmness while also allowing for full facial mobility. Results can last up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM requires minimal downtime. Some patients experience slight swelling, bruising, and redness, all of which usually subside within a few days. Patients usually return to their normal daily routines immediately after treatment but should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours. Because treatment is quick and produce only mild side effects, patients often schedule their appointments on their lunch break and then return to work.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) occurs naturally in the body and delivers nutrients to help the skin retain moisture while adding volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection contains a form of HA.
What can I expect during treatment?
A numbing cream will be administered on the treatment areas. The product is then injected with a thin needle into the predetermined areas in a series of small injections. The injection sites will be gently massaged for a few minutes. After the massage, patients are free to return to their normal daily activities. The injection process takes about 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. You will be given a mirror to view your results as the injector moves from one treatment area to another.
Do JUVÉDERM injections hurt?
The hyaluronic acid filler contains lidocaine, which helps manage any discomfort during treatment.
When will I see results?
Patients usually notice results right away, and the effects can last up to 2 years depending on treatment area and which JUVÉDERM® product is used.
