What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers composed primarily of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance already found in the human body, and it acts to provide volume to our skin. Juvéderm offers an entire collection of dermal fillers and in a general sense, they’re all fairly similar in terms of their indications, risks, and the longevity of their results.

These products represent the most commonly used dermal fillers on the market. Based on their subtle differences, Dr. Hovsepian may prefer to use one product over the other, depending on the location of the injection and your personal aesthetic goals. During your consultation, Dr. Hovsepian will talk you through everything you might need to know about your options and will help you pick the procedure that’s best for you.

How Can Juvéderm Help Me?

Juvéderm, a smooth gel dermal filler, and is infused with lidocaine to improve your comfort level during the treatment. Dr. Hovsepian’s skill will provide you the smooth results you expect from an injectable filler, plus the increased comfort you desire. This filler is effective at addressing:

  • Moderate facial wrinkles
  • Folds
  • Perioral lines such as smoker’s lines
  • Pre-jowl areas
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Wrinkles below the eyes
  • Thin lips

One treatment from Dr. Hovsepian can give you smooth and natural-looking results lasting up to a year.

Your “Non-Surgical Facelift”

Juvéderm dermal fillers can also be used to raise the eyebrows, soften the chin fold, improve the appearance of acne scars, improve nasal deformities, and treat various contour deformities from trauma, surgery, or syndromes of soft tissue atrophy. Juvéderm is, in other words, essentially a non-surgical facelift.

Juvéderm vs. Restylane

The primary difference between these two products is the exact particle size of the hyaluronic acid that composes them, as well as the amount of cross-linking of the particles.

Whereas Restylane is more of a gel particle suspension, Juvéderm is thought to be highly cross-linked, producing more of a gel.

It comes in several forms, and we’re proud to offer the full lineup of Juvéderm products. Read on below to learn more about each Juvéderm variety.

Meet The Juvéderm Collection

Each variety of Juvéderm can be used to accurately address specific issues, and during your consultation Dr. Hovsepian will help you pick the product that’s right for your goals.


As we age, the jawline is one of the first places we notice sagging. Genetics may determine how pronounced and how early this change in volume and elasticity occurs, but VOLUX XC can change that. This dense hyaluronic acid formula increases volume while lifting and firming the skin to redefine the jawline and improve the look of jowls. Juvéderm Volux XC is the first and only FDA-approved HA filler for jawline definition, and it looks and feels like bone as it hardens.


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat volume loss in the cheek area. This advanced formula features hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results in patients with moderate to severe signs of facial aging, including wrinkles and folds in the midface. Not only will you see a more youthful contour to the midfacial region, but this restored volume helps correct a hollow appearance while filling in fine lines and wrinkles.


JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is FDA-approved for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, which make a face look older and tired. This long-term solution to facial wrinkles and folds features VYCROSS® technology to fill and soften lines around the mouth for a rejuvenated appearance. Like the rest of the JUVÉDERM Collection, VOLLURE™ XC contains lidocaine to increase your comfort during treatment. 


JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. However, this revolutionary hyaluronic acid gel can also be injected into the lips and perioral area to contour, fill and reshape your lips for a more youthful look. These results last up to one year, making ULTRA XC one of the longest-lasting lip fillers available.


The JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC PLUS formula is thicker than ULTRA XC, making it better for deep facial creases near the mouth, mid, or lower face. This filler is an excellent, non-invasive alternative to surgical cheek implants. Most patients who use ULTRA PLUS XC have successfully used ULTRA XC but want increased volume.


JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA XC is specifically formulated for the delicate skin covering the lips. It is thinner and more pliable than other fillers, giving a smooth and natural effect. VOLBELLA XC subtly plumps the lips while smoothing lip line definition and vertical lines around the lips, giving you a kissable pout that looks completely natural.
