As we age, it’s natural that we lose some volume in our cheeks and lips and that some lines and wrinkles surface. But just because it is a part of the natural aging process does not mean that we can’t do anything about it. 

Many people who are looking to add volume back into their face or reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles turn to dermal fillers or cosmetic injectables.

What Is Juvèderm?

Juvèderm is a dermal filler that utilizes hyaluronic acid (HA) to deliver volume to specific areas of your skin. Juvèderm is injected into the area of your face where you may have fine lines, wrinkles, or in areas that you would like a bit more volume such as your cheeks or lips. It is a minimally invasive, non-surgical solution to age-related collagen loss and lines and wrinkles. 

Juvèderm is different from other cosmetic injectables that utilize neurotoxins. Because it utilizes HA, you don’t need injections every couple of months. Juvèderm results can last anywhere from one to two years, depending on which Juvèderm formula you choose. Utilizing HA also means that Juvèderm may actually help your skin maintain and restore hydration and stimulate new collagen production. When you choose Juvèderm, you may be able to enjoy younger, more rejuvenated facial skin.  

What Areas Can I Treat With Juvéderm?

Juvèderm comes in several different formulas. Each has a slightly different viscosity making each formula ideal for different areas of the face. If you’re looking to add volume to your lips or cheeks, or are searching for a non-surgical solution to lines and wrinkles, there is a Juvèderm for you.

Lines and Wrinkles

If you are looking to treat lines and wrinkles, Juvèderm® Vollure™ XC and Juvéderm® XC are both approved to be used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, better known as laugh lines. 

Cheeks

If you’ve experienced volume loss in the cheek area and are looking for a quick, minimally-invasive procedure to add volume back to your cheeks, Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC may be right for you. This injectable filler has been approved for deep injection into the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. 

Lips

If you’re searching for a non-surgical solution to lip augmentation, Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC and Juvéderm® Ultra XC have both been approved for this purpose. Whether you have noticed a loss in volume to your lips due to age or are just looking to achieve fuller, plumper lips, these Juvèderm dermal fillers may be the right choice for you.

Chin

The chin is another common area where individuals may want to add some volume to regain a youthful appearance. Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC  has been approved for this use. With just a short office visit, you could be on your way to enjoying a more rejuvenated, younger-looking appearance.

What Should I Expect at My First Juvèderm Appointment?

Your first Juvéderm appointment should be a consultation with a professional who is experienced and knowledgeable of dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables. At this first appointment, you’ll want to discuss your goals so that they can help you to choose the right product for you. Not every dermal filler or injectable is right for everyone, so it’s important to begin with a consultation at your local wellness center.

After your consultation, you’ll make another appointment to have the injections done. And while you may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, Juvéderm injections are minimally invasive. The procedure itself is rather quick and most people can return to their normal activities after their appointment. Some patients even make their appointments on their lunch breaks.
