Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that increases facial volume in specific areas. The main ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s found in your body naturally. 

Hyaluronic acid replenishes volume in a very natural way, and it can also define and sculpt as needed. There are a variety of Juvéderm formulations, each with specific indications.

Where can I get Juvéderm in my face?

The main areas for Juvéderm treatment are:

The nasolabial folds and marionette lines

The nasolabial folds are the two vertical creases on each side of your nose and mouth, and the marionette lines are the creases going from the lip corners to the bottom of the chin.  

It’s normal to lose volume in this area as you age, but Juvéderm restores it perfectly. Usually, Juvéderm Vollure XC and Juvéderm XC are the best formulas for nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Both last around 18 months.

The lips

The lips are one of the most popular areas for Juvéderm treatment. The best Juvéderm formula for your lips depends on your specific concerns. 

If you’ve got fine vertical lines (smoker’s lines or lipstick lines) around your lips, or if you want a mild volume boost, Juvéderm Volbella® is a great choice. For significantly thinning lips, you’ll love the results you get with Juvéderm Ultra XC.  Both formulas last around 12 months.

The cheeks

The cheeks often lose major volume as you age, but Juvéderm Voluma® was created specifically for the midface area. 

Voluma gives your face a more lifted and youthful look, and it can also define your cheekbones or otherwise enhance facial contours. Voluma lasts up to two years. 

Juvéderm and other dermal fillers like Restylane® might sometimes be used in other areas, like under your eyes or in the tip of your nose for a nonsurgical liquid rhinoplasty. 

What is the Juvéderm treatment process like?

First, your Utopia Med Spa provider evaluates your face and discusses a treatment plan with you. They may mark specific areas on your face as a guide. 

Next, your provider cleans the treatment area, and applies either a numbing cream or ice packs if needed to enhance your comfort. Juvéderm products contain an anesthetic, so most patients find the treatment process comfortable. Your injections only a few minutes.

After injections, your provider gently cleans your treatment area. You can return to your regular routine immediately.
