Achieve your personal vision of beauty with Juvéderm.
Juvéderm™ is an injectable dermal filler which has helped millions of women look younger and more beautiful. Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid which is a substance that exists naturally in your skin. In a simple, non-invasive procedure, Juvéderm is injected underneath the skin to add volume. Juvederm features an extensive line of hyaluronic acid-based fillers that can work in a variety of ways to address many aging concerns of the face. This product family includes the following fillers:
The original Juvederm, now with lidocaine (XC) for additional comfort, is still a top choice for addressing nasolabial folds, marionette lines and wrinkles on the chin. With a long track record of success, this filler works well for moderate to severe lines with results that last up to one year.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Vollure is a relative newcomer to the Juvederm line, receiving FDA approval in 2017. However, the product has been marketed and used in other countries under the name Volift for much longer, proving its effectiveness and safety. This formula features revolutionary Vycross technology, which combines molecular weights of hyaluronic acid particles for a more effective treatment. This filler is used to address nasolabial folds and marionette lines with positive results for up to 18 months.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma addresses the natural loss of volume in the midface that is caused by collagen depletion over time. The thicker formula fills in the cheek hollows and loss of fullness in the temple, and lack of chin projection, and weak jawline to restore a youthful facial profile. Most patients enjoy their enhanced appearance for up to two years.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Ultra XC is a finer formulation than the traditional Juvederm, making it a natural choice for the delicate work of plumping up the lips. This product works both on lips that never had enough fullness or those that have lost volume over time. Results typically last up to one year.
Juvederm Volbella XC
Volbella is another option for the lips that employs Vycross technology to produce a more efficient, natural outcome. The filler also smooths out the fine perioral lines above the upper lip to create a more youthful appearance overall. Like Juvederm Ultra, Volbella has been proven to last one year or more.
What can Juvéderm treat?
Our office offers the entire collection of Juvéderm fillers. We work closely with each patient and recommends specific treatment based on your specific goals.
Dr. Sholar uses Juvéderm in the treatment of:
- Lip enhancement (for fuller lips)
- Deep lines near the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Wrinkles, lines, creases
While there are many injectable fillers available today, Juvéderm has proven to be very safe and effective. It is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA with results that last six months to a year.
How does Juvéderm work?
Hyaluronic acid naturally maintains hydration and volume in your skin, which is lost as people age. However, when injected, Juvéderm bonds with the water in the skin and increases its volume 1000 times. This helps to expand the skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.
As a lip enhancer, Juvéderm helps to create full and beautiful lips. An added benefit is its ability to stimulate collagen production to create more elastic, younger looking skin.
For those who are looking to take control of the signs of aging, Revanesse® Versa is a multi-purpose dermal filler that leverages state of the art production methods, optimal ingredients and rigorous quality testing to provide beautiful results.
Revanesse Versa is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that is found within the body. Versa is a versatile filler that can be used to treat several different areas. It is used to treat lines and wrinkle, such as the nasolabial folds, as well as in the cheeks and lips to enhance and/or replace lost volume.
What can I expect after injections?
There is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities. Side effects are rare and are typically limited to the injection sites and will usually subside in a few days.
Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
