The Juvéderm family:
Juvéderm is a family of products that are used to address different elements of the aging process. Different products are specifically designed to correct certain issues.
- Juvéderm Voluma XC – for increasing cheek volume
- Juvéderm XC/ Juvéderm Vollure XC – for smoothing out wrinkles around mouth
- Juvéderm Ultra XC/ Juvéderm Volbella XC – for plumping of lips
Juvéderm was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2006. As one of the most trusted brands of dermal fillers, its use in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures remains exceedingly popular.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a dermal filler treatment that’s meant to reduce lines and wrinkles, and to also bring volume and fullness to specific parts of the face. It is made up of a gel-like substance built on a base of hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin. This treatment is mostly intended for use on the face, specifically, areas such as the cheeks and around the mouth, but can be applied elsewhere as well.
How does Juvéderm work?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our bodies that helps produce collagen. As we age, this process slows down, allowing wrinkles to form and skin to sag.
With a small needle, Juvéderm is injected under the skin, and depending on the procedure, these injections can take between 15 and 60 minutes to complete. Expect the full effect of your Juvéderm treatment to be visible almost immediately.
What’s the difference between Juvéderm, Belotero & Restylane?
Juvéderm, Belotero and Restylane are the three brands of dermal fillers offered at Burlington Medical Aesthetics. All three options are made from hyaluronic acid. The difference in these three face fillers is that they are designed for treating particular areas.
Juvéderm is useful for mid-depth wrinkles and creases, and it can be used on any part of the face. Juvéderm is also well-known for filling lips.

What areas are commonly treated by Juvéderm?
Juvéderm injections are a common cosmetic procedure that can be applied to various areas of the face. The 3 most common sites people target with Juvéderm are:
- Areas around mouth & nose
What is the standard procedure like?
When undergoing Juvéderm treatment, the patient is placed on an exam table, usually in a sitting or upright position. Treatment areas are mapped and then cleaned with a non-alcoholic solution to maintain sterility.
To prevent bleeding or bruising, the physician will often apply pressure around the target site as the injection is administered. The amount/type of wrinkles determines how many injections are needed.
Is Juvéderm treatment painful?
Juvéderm injections are administered using a small needle. As such, there is potential for a minor amount of discomfort. Juvéderm also contains lidocaine, which helps combat any associated pain during the treatment.
How long is the average session?
Juvéderm treatment sessions vary from patient to patient, but typically last between 15 and 60 minutes.
How safe is Juvéderm treatment?
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid-based product, a substance that is naturally produced by our bodies. As such, most people are candidates for treatment. Juvéderm treatment is considered safe by the medical community and was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2006.
As with any medically prescribed substance, it is important to discuss any concerns you may have with a trained health practitioner.
What are the main benefits of Juvéderm?
The main benefit to Juvéderm treatment is that it reduces the appearance of wrinkles in the facial area.
How quickly can I see results?
The effects of Juvéderm injections are usually noticeable almost immediately.
Should I expect any side effects?
Any medical procedure has risks. The most common side effect reported by patients is slight swelling around injection sites. It’s important that you consult with your family doctor and/or a trained dermatologist to assess any potential risks considering your own medical history.
What should I expect in terms of recovery time?
In general, there is very little, if any, recovery time associated with a standard Juvéderm injection.
How often should appointments be booked?
Juvéderm injections are a temporary solution that last approximately six months to two years. As effects wear off and depending on user physiology, we recommend that you consult with our beauty care specialists to determine when another injection should be considered.
