What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid filler. Juvéderm® fillers add volume to areas of the face without surgery. All Juvéderm® fillers are a smooth, crystal clear gel that are administered by a certified injector.

Where is Juvéderm® used?
Cheeks, parentheses, lines, and lips. The results are subtle and long lasting.
Juvéderm VOLUMA® XC adds volume to the cheek area.
Juvéderm VOLBELLA® XC adds subtle volume to lips and softens the appearance of vertical lip lines.
Juvéderm® XC smooths moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC adds fullness and plumps lips as well as soothes and corrects moderate to severe lines in adults.

What is the treatment experience like?
Your certified injector will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Actual treatment with Juvéderm® injectable gels can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.

Does it hurt?
Juvéderm® injectable gels labeled with “XC” contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection. You may also ask your provider about a topical numbing cream or ice to help further minimize discomfort.

What is the average treatment cost?
This will vary from person to person. The cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist who is administering your treatment.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the Juvéderm® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

When will I see results?
You will see results immediately/instantly.

How long do results last?
Results may last one year to two years, with optimal correction and depending on the formula used.

Are there any reasons I shouldn’t receive Juvéderm® fillers?
Do not receive Juvéderm® injectable gel fillers if you have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the proteins (Gram-positive bacterial proteins) used to make hyaluronic acid.
