Most fillers are a gelatinous substance called hyluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance that are injected into the body’s soft tissue at different depths to restore volume.
- Juvéderm XC and Vollure correct moderate to severe wrinkles and lines on the face, like parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results usually last for about one year.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC and Volbella add shape to the upper lip, lower lip, or both while correcting the appearance of fine, vertical lines on the lips. The results usually can be seen for up to one year.

On average, Juvéderm injections only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the procedure, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your treatment, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity, including exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
