JUVÉDERM® is a cosmetic treatment used to volumize cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, smooth vertical lip lines, or plump the lips. This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler was first approved by the FDA in 2006 and has been safely used in millions of patients.

JUVÉDERM is a non-surgical treatment that takes between 15-60 minutes. Results start to appear right away and may last 1-2 years.

There are several products within the JUVÉDERM family and each product is used to treat specific problems for patients.

Juvederm® XC, Volbella®, and Voluma® all contain an anesthetic, called lidocaine, to help reduce discomfort during your treatment.

JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC FAQ’s

Why Is Juvéderm® XC Different?

Juvederm™ Ultra and Ultra Plus is a “next generation” hyaluronic acid – smooth gel dermal filler. It is different from others on the market because it is a “smooth gel” that flows consistently into the skin, causing wrinkles and folds to easily “smooth away” with the restored volume to the skin. The Ultra Plus formula is more robust and allows for more versatility in treating deeper wrinkles and folds.

What Facial Areas Are Typically Treated?

Juvéderm® is used to correct areas around the mouth and lips that need to be rejuvenated.

What Makes Juvéderm® Suitable For All Skin Types?

There is no risk of hyper-pigmentation and hyper-tropic scarring.

Juvéderm® Is Different From Botox Cosmetic – How?

Botox is a muscle relaxant that is generally used in the upper facial area to relax the parallel line area between the eyes.

Explain Hyaluronic Acid and Cross-Linking.

Hyaluronic Acid is substance which occurs naturally in all mammals and helps to keep the skin hydrated. With aging hyaluronic acid production slows down and lines, wrinkles and folds appear. Cross-linking is a unique manufacturing process. It is what makes Juvéderm® effective and longer lasting.

Are Juvéderm® Injections Painful?

Because Juvederm is a smooth gel – it flows easily and consistently into the skin. This causes little to no discomfort like other dermal fillers because they are granular.

How Long Does A Treatment Take?

A treatment generally takes 15-30 minutes.

Will Insurance Cover Juvederm Treatments?

NO. Insurance does not pay for cosmetic procedures. But financing is available. Please ask about it in our business office.

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
