What Is Juvederm?

Juvéderm™ is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel that smooths your facial wrinkles and folds by restoring your skin's volume. It is recommended for treating the cheeks, lines and folds around the mouth and for lip enhancement.  Juvederm includes a family of products including Juvederm Ultra, Ultra-Plus, Vollure, Volbella, Voluma and others.

Hyaluronic acid, the base compound for Juvederm, is found naturally in your body. It lubricates your joints and is a natural component of human skin. Our naturally occurring hyaluronic acid diminishes with age.

The results of Juvederm treatment last six to 24 months depending on the product used and the area treated. The effects diminish gradually as your body absorbs the natural hyaluronic acid. The advantage of this and other temporary fillers, such as Restylane, is that you can have touch ups or re-treatment at any time.

Juvederm is not an animal-based filler, so you will not need an allergy test prior to your procedure. Juvederm comes as two different products: Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. Dr. Greenberg and his staff will review the indications and differences of the products with you at your consultation and recommend which would work best for your specific concerns.

The Procedure

As with other injectable fillers, Juvederm injections take about 15 minutes.

  • Topical numbing cream is applied to the area
  • Juvederm is injected under the skin in precise areas
  • If necessary, Dr. Greenberg will gently massage the treated area
  • You will see final results in about one-two weeks

Recovery

It is normal for you to experience some minor swelling, pain, and redness after your treatment. This should subside within a week. For at least 24 hours after treatment, you should avoid strenuous activity, sun exposure, and excessive heat.

What Is Juvederm Voluma?

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to add volume to the cheek area. It provides a subtle cheek lift, helping to restore volume, improve contour and add a more youthful profile.

It's different than other hyaluronic acid fillers, as it is designed to replace lost volume and lift the cheeks where other HA fillers smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.

The results of Juvederm Voluma treatment last 18-24 months. The effects diminish gradually as your body absorbs the natural hyaluronic acid. The unique purpose of this filler is to revolumize the midface and achieve a cheek lift in those patients who have had significant weight loss, those with athletic builds and facial volume loss associated with aging. The advantage of this and other more temporary HA fillers is that you can have touch ups or re-treatment at any time.

Voluma is not an animal-based filler, so you will not need test injection prior to your procedure.

The Procedure

As with other injectable fillers, Voluma injections take about 15 minutes.

  • Topical numbing cream is applied to the area
  • Juvederm Voluma is injected under the skin in precise areas
  • If necessary, Dr. Greenberg will gently massage the treated area
  • You will see results immediately with the final results being seen in approximately 1-2 weeks
