What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm comes in a variety of formulations but in all formulations, it’s considered a “soft” hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Juvederm is administered through a syringe and injected into areas where you want to fill, lift or define areas of your face. 

Where Can Juvederm Be Used?

Lip Filler

Juvederm Volbella can enhance the fullness and shape of your lips. Juvederm can also be used to soften any surrounding lip lines. This provides a non-surgical option to lip augmentation without the need for downtime.

Acne Scars

Acne, especially severe cystic acne, can cause pitted scars on the face. Acne scars are caused by severe inflammation which can cause actual destruction of skin tissue. These scars leave indentions or “pits” in the skin. Juvederm can help fill out these areas and reduce the appearance of pitting if laser is not a viable option for you. Very careful placement is required to prevent overfilling.

Wrinkles, Lines, and Folds

Beyond filling out smaller lines and wrinkles, Juvederm is useful in marionette lines, folds on the side of the mouth, the corners of the mouth, and general wrinkles. Certain formulations (think density) are capable of creating instant “cheekbones” which in some instances help lift lax skin beneath.
