How does Juvederm work?

JUVÉDERM® is a filler that relies on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen to plump up the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body.  Over time, skin becomes loose, thin, and dry due to the breakdown of hyaluronic acid and collagen, which serve to tighten and hydrate the skin.  

What are the different kinds of Juvederm & what do they target?


When we're young, fat pads in the upper and mid cheek area give a more youthful, fuller appearance. Over time, age-related mid-face volume and fat loss develops which cause the cheeks to flatten and sag. Deep wrinkles, parenthesis lines develop over time from the aging process and volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC adds volume to correct age- related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. Patients reported looking up to 5 years younger at 6 months after treatment.  Lasts up to 2 years in cheek area.

Juvéderm XC can smooth and soften the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth for a more youthful appearance.  Proven to last up to 1 year.


As with cheek volume loss and wrinkles, the lips lose volume as we age creating a thinner appearance often times with vertical lines. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is specifically tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines.  Lasts up to 1 year.
