Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. There are several products in the Juvederm family. They all are used to help people address the facial signs of aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The different products are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency.
Juvederm treatment is suitable for both male and female patients of all skin types and ages 18 and older. In addition to correcting facial creases, such as the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth creases) and marionette lines (mouth to chin creases), smoker’s lines (upper lip wrinkles), and deep frown lines (11’s), Juvederm is also used for the following:
- Lip augmentation
- Non-surgical nose contouring
- Acne scar correction
- Filling under eye depressions
Types of Juvederm Products
Juvederm Vollure XC
Juvederm Vollure XC is used to plump skin and address moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on the skin. This dermal filler can sustain for up to 18 months, which is longer than any other Juvederm product. Juvederm Vollure XC tends to cause less pain during injection and causes less inflammation.
Juvederm Volbella XC
FDA-approved Juvederm Volbella XC is meant specifically for the lips and surrounding area. The filler comprises a gel that when injected, plumps the lip lines and wrinkles. The HA maintains moisture enabling the outcomes to sustain for up to one year. As the injection includes a local anesthetic as well, the treatment will be much more comfortable.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Volume loss is a natural part of aging. However, a person does not have to sit back and accept depleted cheeks and sagging skin associated with this natural process. Juvederm Voluma XC is a med spa injectable gel treatment that is administered deep into the cheek region. It creates volume underneath the surface of the skin, offering a lift and developing a more youthful definition. Patients report appearing up to five years younger with a single treatment!
Juvederm Ultra XC
Even in people who have smooth and wrinkle-free skin, volume loss in the lips can age the face. Some people may have always wanted more voluptuous lips. Regardless of the reason for seeking fuller lips, patients can accomplish their goal with Juvederm Ultra XC. Juvederm Ultra XC is an injectable gel meant for perioral rejuvenation and lip enhancement. It offers natural plumpness to the lips and mitigates the appearance of vertical lip lines. Juvederm Ultra XC offers a full, natural, and beautiful appearance to the lips.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
At times, a slight enhancement is all that is required. Other times, a patient may seek more dramatic outcomes. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC may be just what the doctor ordered for more significant changes to the lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a more dense type of filler injection which is administered deep into the skin. It is slightly thicker than Juvederm Ultra XC and can be administered in the perioral area as well as other areas. The main distinction between Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and other Juvederm products in the viscosity. This enables Juvederm Ultra Plus XC to create more volume, more lift, and more dramatic outcomes.
The severity and location of the creases and wrinkles may necessitate the use of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC to accomplish the outcomes that the patient is seeking. SEE:How Long Does Swelling Last After Juvederm

After Care Instructions for Juvederm
Most patients have no problems after facial filler treatments. Overall, it is extremely safe with very high satisfaction! Fillers cannot always last as long as desired or improve wrinkles as much as hoped. Fillers do not “get rid” of all your wrinkles. Patients should expect “significant improvement” not complete wrinkle removal. If the patient doesn’t get the results may want, often the answer is more filler. This means purchasing more product. This is really not a problem, extra filler can be safely added shortly after the first treatment or at any time. It usually leads to improved results and increased satisfaction. If extra product is needed to get the desired result, the office strives to give you the best price for the needed filler.
General Care After Fillers:
Bruising and Swelling – ice as much as you can for the first several days. 20 min. on and 20 min. off – 5 times a day. Extra icing can definitely help.
Headache Pain or Pain at Injection Site – Tylenol or Motrin usually is all that is required.
Redness, Welts, and Itching – Benadryl is best. This is available over-the-counter.
Lumps or Bumps – massage with constant pressure to the area for 2 min. Repeat 4-5 times a day.
Results – Understand Realistic Results. Additional treatment to require more product and have an additional expense.
Risks and side effects
You can expect some swelling and bruising. Other common side effects include:
- lumps or bumps
- minor pain
All of these side effects usually subside within two to four weeks.
More serious side effects are typically associated with unprofessional handling, like injecting Juvederm into a blood vessel unintentionally. Complications can include permanent scarring, vision abnormalities, blindness, or stroke. That’s why it’s very important to choose your doctor wisely. Make sure that they are trained, certified, and licensed to perform the procedure. READ: How Long Does Jeuveau Last?
