Patients who want significant facial rejuvenation but don’t want to have an invasive procedure have a wonderful option to consider in injectables. Juvederm, one of the most widely used and effective product lines on the market, can give patients the results they want quickly and safely, providing long-lasting improvements to the most critical areas of the face, including the eyes, cheeks and lips, while also preserving their natural and attractive looks. Your facial rejuvenation journey begins with a call to Physicians Laser for your personal consultation, but you can learn more here first to come to your appointment fully prepared.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is the name of a line of injectable treatments that can substantially improve facial aging symptoms, providing lasting results. These injectables restore volume loss resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and folds in the facial area and, with its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, can help the skin regain lost tone and stay hydrated. The combination of these benefits produces skin that is smoother and more supple, allowing Juvederm recipients to enjoy a renewed youthful appearance and glow.

The Juvederm line of treatments also offers clients unique benefits through its proprietary Vycross formula. This special preparation combines different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, resulting in a smoother product consistency and much more natural results for clients after treatment. Another benefit of Vycross technology is its long-lasting results, which translate into fewer follow-up treatments for patients and greater value when compared to similar treatments.

What facial areas can Juvederm improve?

The Juvederm line of products includes treatments designed for nearly every aspect of the face, and patients can have just the product or combination of products they need to achieve their desired level of rejuvenation. Juvederm’s array of treatments make it highly customizable and appropriate for a wide range of facial rejuvenation concerns.

Juvederm XC

Juvederm XC is a medium-density injectable gel that is ideal for treating more moderate facial aging symptoms in the face. The injectable can treat:

  • Smile lines also known as nasolabial folds (creases which run from the nose to the mouth)
  • Parentheses lines presenting at the corners of the mouth
  • Horizontal lines across the forehead
  • Lines between the eyebrows also known as glabellar or frown lines
  • Marionette lines which extend down the corners of the mouth to the chin
  • Hollows, dark circles and wrinkles beneath the eyes

Juvederm XC can also help improve symptoms affecting the lips and includes lidocaine to ensure a comfortable treatment.


Voluma can improve volume loss which affects the cheeks and causes a prematurely aged look. The FDA has approved Voluma for the treatment of the mid-face in male and female patients over age 21. The injectable can smooth facial hollows, improve skin tone and provide rejuvenation of treated areas for up to two years in some patients. Voluma can also improve hollows in other areas of the midface, such as the temples, and can even smooth the jowls.


Juvederm also has an answer for facial aging symptoms, which affect the lower face. Vollure, which is approved by the FDA for treatment of the lower face, can provide visible and substantial rejuvenation to loose skin, wrinkles and folds in many key areas, including:

  • Nasolabial folds which extend from the edges of the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Smile lines, or the vertical lines at the edges of the mouth
  • Marionette lines which extend from the sides of the mouth to the chin
  • Mild skin laxity leading to a loss of definition along the jawline
  • Depleted volume in the midface area

The injectable’s very smooth consistency contributes to the very natural results patients enjoy after treatment. The product has also seen wide use in European countries since 2013, making it a well understood and much demanded treatment for rejuvenation of the lower face area.


Volbella can treat volume loss in the lip area or be used to plump lips for individuals who wish to have a more full and plump lip appearance. The injectable has also been FDA approved for treating the lips. The treatment can both plump the lips and smooth away fine lines around the mouth, known as perioral lines, creating a more youthful look in the entire mouth area. Results of a Vollure treatment can last for up to one year.

Do I qualify for a Juvederm treatment?

Most patients with mild to moderate facial aging symptoms will qualify for a Juvederm treatment, including one or more injectables in the Juvederm product line. However, to be sure you qualify and begin planning your course of treatment, schedule an in-person consultation with us at Physicians Laser. After an opportunity to discuss your concerns, you will have a full examination by your qualified and experienced Physicians Laser doctor, who will recommend an ideal treatment plan for your specific needs. You will have all your questions answered and leave with complete confidence in your treatment plan, ready to greet life with a whole new look.

What will happen during my procedure?

You will need to avoid certain medications and supplements prior to your treatment. These will include prescriptions or supplements which thin the blood and also certain anti-inflammatories. By not having these before your procedure, you can reduce the occurrence of bruising in treated areas. If you are not using any of these substances currently, you could even have your Juvederm treatment on the same day as your consultation.

Before you receive your injections, your Physicians Laser doctor will usually apply a topical anesthetic to the areas being treated; although the use of anesthetic is optional. After the numbing agent has taken effect, he will then administer the pre-determined amount of filler, via injection, to your concern areas. Your entire treatment can be performed in 15 to 30 minutes, and you may resume all normal activities once you have received your injections.

What results can Juvederm produce?

Some mild swelling and bruising in treated areas are natural immediately after treatment, but it is usually mild enough for you to return to work or social activities without concern. It is safe for women to cover-up any bruising with makeup. Ice can also be used to help control swelling, as necessary. As these symptoms subside in the days after your treatment, you will start to see and enjoy your results — a healthy youthful volume where you have had treatment and a more healthy glow that will last for months or over a year, depending on your choice of treatment. Occasional touch-ups will be necessary to maintain your look, and your doctor will provide you with a suggested schedule to ensure you continue to look refreshed for a long time to come.
