JUVÉDERM® Filler Options

Do you want to feel vital and look vibrant? JUVÉDERM® is a family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a key building block of healthy skin and helps maintain moisture and volume. As we age, the production of HA slows down significantly, leading to the formation of wrinkles and loss of volume. JUVÉDERM® fillers are designed to replenish HA, providing immediate and long-lasting results.

Here’s an overview of the main JUVÉDERM® products:

  • JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC: Specifically formulated to be injected deep into the cheeks to correct age-related volume loss.
  • JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC: Perfect for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing vertical lip lines.
  • JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC: Ideal for adding more fullness, plumping lips, and smoothing moderate to severe nasolabial folds (smile lines).
  • JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC: A thicker, more robust formulation for deeper wrinkles, creases, and areas requiring more volume.
  • JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC: Designed to address the deepest facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, with a balance of flexibility and support.
  • JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC: Engineered for jawline definition and contouring, providing a more sculpted look.

What to Consider When Choosing a JUVÉDERM® Product

Each JUVÉDERM® product is formulated to address specific areas of the face. Identifying your primary areas of concern can help narrow down your options.

  • Cheeks: If you’re looking to restore volume and lift in the cheek area, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is the preferred choice. Its thicker consistency allows it to provide a noticeable lift and contour.
  • Lips: To enhance lip volume and definition, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC are excellent options. Ultra XC provides more volume, while Volbella XC offers subtle enhancement and smooths fine lines around the lips.
  • Smile Lines (Nasolabial Folds): JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and VOLLURE® XC are all effective for treating nasolabial folds. Vollure XC balances flexibility and support, making it ideal for these dynamic areas.
  • Jawline: For jawline contouring and definition, JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC provides the necessary structure and support.

Desired JUVÉDERM® Results

The specific results you’re seeking also influence the choice of JUVÉDERM® product.

  • Subtle Enhancement: If you prefer subtle, natural-looking enhancements, JUVÉDERM® Volbella XC and Vollure XC are designed to provide more understated results.
  • Significant Volume: For those seeking more dramatic volume and lift, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC and Ultra Plus XC are suitable due to their thicker formulations.
  • Smooth Fine Lines: If your goal is to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, products like JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC and Ultra XC can address these concerns effectively.

Longevity of Results

Different JUVÉDERM® products have varying durations of effectiveness. Understanding how long each product lasts can help you choose the one that fits your lifestyle and maintenance preferences.

  • Long-Lasting Volume: JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC can last up to two years, making it a long-lasting option for cheek augmentation.
  • Moderate Duration: JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC typically last up to one year, offering a good balance of longevity and flexibility.
  • Subtle or Shorter Duration: JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC usually lasts about a year, making it ideal for those who prefer more frequent, subtle touch-ups or want to experiment before choosing a more long-term solution.

Consulting with a Qualified JUVÉDERM® Practitioner

The best way to determine the right JUVÉDERM® product for you is to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner. Here’s what you can expect during the consultation process:

Assessment of Facial Features

A skilled and experienced injectable professional will assess your facial anatomy, including skin type, elasticity, and overall facial structure. This evaluation helps identify the most appropriate areas for treatment and the suitable JUVÉDERM® product.

Discussion of Goals

Openly discussing your aesthetic goals and concerns with your practitioner is crucial. Whether you want to add volume, smooth wrinkles, or enhance specific features, clearly communicating your desired outcomes will guide the treatment plan.

Customized Treatment Plan

Your injectable practitioner will create a personalized treatment plan based on the assessment and discussion. This plan will detail the recommended JUVÉDERM® products, the number of syringes needed, and the expected results. A customized approach ensures the injectable(s) used will meet your unique needs and goals.

Explanation of the Procedure

Understanding the procedure, including the steps involved, potential side effects, and post-treatment care, is important. Your practitioner will explain how the injections are administered, what to expect during the treatment, and any precautions to take before and after the procedure.


Short-Term Expectations

It’s common to experience some swelling and bruising, which should subside within a few days.

While you’ll see immediate improvements, final results will become clearer as swelling decreases and the filler settles.

Long-Term Maintenance

Periodic follow-up treatments can help you maintain your results and address any concerns.

A healthy skin care routine and hydration can prolong the effects of each session.
