Juvederm® is a cosmetic treatment referred to as a filler. It's used to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging. It's an injectable dermal filler with a base of hyaluronic acid. It's a treatment that focuses on the face, specifically the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind JUVÉDERM®. Getting treated with JUVÉDERM® helps add volume to different areas of the face without surgery while also temporarily restoring the volume loss beneath the surface.
How Juvederm® Works
Juvederm® products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. Juvederm products are developed using the Hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel. Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to skin.
Juvederm XC products also contain the local anesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable injection as this numbs the treatment area within seconds. The Juvederm Ultra XC products contain more highly cross-linked formulations for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles.
- Relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to plastic surgery procedures
-Requires no allergy testing, as the hyaluronic acid it contains is human-based and safe
-Smoothing and plumping up of both deep facial wrinkles and creases are immediately apparent
-Can also be used to safely augment the lips

(Chin by Courtney)
Our patient was looking for a more defined chin and jawline. With just 1 Syringe of Juvederm Voluma, our providers were able to accentuate her profile and deliver subtle yet successful results. This quick and efficient method of correcting one’s profile requires no down time and is the perfect option for those who would like to opt out of surgical measures.

(Lips & Botox by Sam Owen)
This patient was looking to add volume to her lips through the use of Juvederm Volbella. She was also very self-conscious about the lines around her mouth and the way that her lips turned down at the corners. Our provider was able to use half a syringe of filler to her lips, as well as Botox on her chin and around her mouth to relax the muscles in order to create a natural looking lift.
