What Is JUVÉDERM®?

 

JUVÉDERM® is the #1 doctor recommended facial filler in the U.S. It is a smooth, replenishing injectable gel filler that your cosmetic doctor uses to refresh your appearance by smoothing away unwanted lines and bringing back the natural contours of your face.

The exclusive formulation of JUVÉDERM® uses hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally-occurring sugar found in your body. It combines with the water in your skin to instantly smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance lips, and restore lost volume to the cheeks and jaw-line. In fact, hyaluronic acid facial fillers can even naturally stimulate collagen production in your skin.

How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?

Skin rejuvenation treatments with JUVÉDERM® are quick, simple, comfortable, and non-surgical. The procedure will have you looking and feeling instantly refreshed. The treatment administered by your cosmetic doctor involves subtle and strategically placed JUVÉDERM® injections under the skin to restore and boost individual facial features.

It will add volume and definition to facial features while keeping your appearance looking natural, symmetrical, and well-balanced. Whether you are interested in enhancing facial features or refreshing and rejuvenating your appearance, JUVÉDERM® can be used to:

  • Soften smile lines
  • Restore lost fullness in your cheeks
  • Enhance lips
  • Contour your jaw line

The treatment is comfortable thanks to the patented formulation of JUVÉDERM® XC (extra comfort) that includes lidocaine – a localized pain reliever. After the treatment, the appearance of lines on your face will be reduced, your lips will appear fuller and more defined, and your cheeks plump. You will leave looking naturally refreshed – so that everyone will notice, but no one will know!

The Benefits

Depending on what you want to accomplish, this simple treatment can be used for many different purposes. It can be used as a wrinkle filler, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creases. It can also be used to restore volume in the cheeks and chin area and to enhance features such as lips and cheeks.

Refresh and Rejuvenate

JUVÉDERM® can instantly refresh and rejuvenate your appearance by smoothing unwanted lines, restoring natural contours and replacing lost cheek volume. JUVÉDERM® is placed beneath wrinkles and folds to ‘fill in’ or ‘plump up’ the depression. The most appropriate lines to treat with JUVÉDERM® are those that are described as static lines you can see when your face is not moving (like smile lines). The most commonly treated areas include smile lines (or nasolabial folds), mouth lines (or marionette lines), smoker lines (or vertical lip lines), cheeks or chin.

Enhancement

JUVÉDERM® injections can also be used as facial fillers to enhance some of your facial features, such as lips and cheeks. With subtle and strategically-placed injections, JUVÉDERM® will contour and define lips and cheeks, at the same time keeping your appearance natural-looking, symmetrical and well-balanced.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® XC?

BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® XC are two possible ways to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Both are non-surgical, but they work differently:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: Injected beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity which is one of the causes of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduce the activity of those muscles.
  • JUVÉDERM® XC: Injected into the skin to temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles such as those around the nose and mouth.
Am I a candidate for treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC?
Do not use this product if you have severe allergies or a history of severe allergic reactions. You should also not use this product if you have allergies to lidocaine or the proteins used to make hyaluronic acid. Your doctor will determine if JUVÉDERM® XC treatment is right for you.
Is treatment with JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler painful?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. JUVÉDERM® XC is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience.  Your doctor may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.
How long does treatment usually take?
The injection process can be performed during a brief office visit. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with your doctor prior to treatment. Touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal results. Less gel (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.
What are the possible side effects of JUVÉDERM® XC non-surgical filler?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injections site reaction such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection.
What is the difference between JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?

JUVÉDERM® XC is a non-surgical filler your doctor uses to instantly smooth out moderate to severe lines along the sides of your nose and mouth. Natural-looking results may last up to one year with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only injectable gel that is FDA-approved to instantly correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area for people over 21. It adds volume, creating contour and lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.

Does the correction last forever?
Correction is temporary and may last up to one year with optimal treatment. Therefore, touch-up injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain optimal results. Less material (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.

Clients’ Comments

I feel really young, have more energy and I am really confident about myself since the treatment. The lines around my eyes (the crow’s feet) are gone and my forehead lines are much less visible. My face is rounder and doesn’t droop. My eyes are brighter and more open. I would totally recommend the treatment. It’s simple, it’s easy and it doesn’t take a lot of time. It has made my skin radiant, smooth and tight. I love it. Carloyn

I’ve always felt good about my appearance, but I started to notice some lines on my face that I didn’t like. The treatment was great; very painless and very fast. I’m very happy with my results. I look refreshed and younger. Nobody’s noticed I’ve had the treatment but I have had comments from co-workers like “you look really fresh” or “you look really good today.” I would recommend the treatment to all my friends and family. Laura

I’m a nurse and I work in a high stress environment. Because I’m always giving to other people I wanted to do something for myself. I felt my eyes were getting more deep-set all the time and were not as open as I would like. I think there is nothing to fear about the treatment and the results are great. After the treatment the biggest thing I noticed was that it softened and rounded my features, and smoothed out lines. It gave me a natural and refreshed look. When I look in the mirror I think the biggest change is around my mouth, eyes and forehead. Everything looks smoother, fresher and definitely my eyes are more open. When you know you look better, you have more energy and you even act a bit differently, so it helps everything. This is one thing that we can do for ourselves and I’m glad that I had it done. Gail

I had drooping skin under my eyes that made me look really old and tired. So much so, that I was considering plastic surgery. Persona recommended that I use Juvederm as a filler instead. Now the dark circles around my eyes are gone and no more droopy skin. A nice side benefit is that I get compliments on how good I look. Nobody can tell I had anything done. I love it. Thank you Persona Medical Spa. Jonathan
