As time goes by, you might begin to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of volume on your facial skin. To combat this phenomenon, numerous products offer solutions to renew skin’s luster, and dermal fillers are one of the most popular.
Dermal fillers provide a long-lasting, minimally invasive approach to restoring skin’s youthful appearance. Major brands like Juvéderm include a whole line of different products, each specializing in specific skin concerns.

Our skilled team makes sure that you know all of your options, and we offer you the best treatments to achieve the results you want.
Before your first dermal filler appointment, it’s best to understand the benefits of dermal fillers and the intricacies of Juvéderm’s line of products.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
As we age, our bodies produce less of the proteins, sugars, and fat that give skin its younger, plumper appearance. Subcutaneous fat in the face begins dissipating, decreasing volume and changing facial contours.
The production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid also slows, which can cause a loss of structure, elasticity, and hydration. As a result, the skin develops fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, and it may sag and appear duller.
Dermal fillers work to remedy these signs of aging. When injected into the deeper layers of the skin, dermal fillers provide volume that fills in facial lines, plumps skin, and gently stimulates the body’s production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, providing long-lasting results.
How Do Juvéderm Fillers Work?
Juvéderm fillers use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient. While hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, its production begins to slow around the age of 30, and skin can slowly develop fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and a crepey texture.
Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to moisture, delivering a glowing, hydrated look to the skin. Juvéderm’s products contain a synthetic, vegan-friendly form of hyaluronic acid that not only restores volume and fills in lines but also provides a brighter, more hydrated appearance.
Juvéderm is a stand-out among dermal filler options, as the brand offers several formulas, each designed to target specific skin concerns and produce long-lasting, natural-looking results.
What’s Unique About Juvéderm Fillers?
Juvéderm treatments offer instant results in a quick and easy procedure.
Juvéderm facial fillers fall into one of two categories: They either refresh or enhance the face. When choosing dermal fillers to rejuvenate the face, Juvéderm can restore volume and fullness to your cheeks and lips, soften age lines near the eyes, smooth out lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and contour your chin and jawline.
The Juvéderm fillers designed to enhance the face add contour and volume, refresh the eye area, alter the shape of the lips, lift cheeks, and add symmetry and definition.
What Are the Differences in Juvéderm Fillers?
Juvéderm fillers employ two types of technology based on their intended use. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC are volumizing fillers that use the brand’s Hylacross technology.
Hylacross technology uses uniform strands of hyaluronic acid that form a weaved pattern with enough space between the strands to attract and hold water.
The other three products — Juvéderm Volbella, Juvéderm Vollure, and Juvéderm Voluma — employ Vycross technology. Vycross links the hyaluronic acid strands more tightly, allowing less space to hold water. However, the tighter weave maintains its shape, making these fillers longer-lasting.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is a soft dermal filler used to treat moderate wrinkles that appear from the nose to the corners of the mouth. In addition, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC smooths depressed scars, enhances lips, and serves as the preferred option for treating fat loss and skin depression.
Juvéderm Ultra is one of the most versatile fillers in the Juvéderm line and offers enhanced consistency and performance.
Juvéderm Volbella targets the lips and lines around the lip area. It adds subtle volume, smooths wrinkles, and creates natural-looking results. In addition, Juvéderm’s patented technology allows Volbella treatments to last a year or longer, while similar lip fillers tend to last only six months.
Juvéderm Ultra XC
Juvéderm Ultra XC is also primarily designed to augment the lips, but this treatment adds more dramatic and substantial enhancements to the lips and surrounding tissue.
While Volbella focuses on smoothing lines and gently volumizing lips, Ultra XC offers more augmentation and fullness to the lips. Results last about a year.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a stiffer consistency than other options, making it especially effective on larger face areas. In addition, Voluma XC subtly lifts and contours the cheek area, restoring volume and structure.
Voluma XC is the only filler of its kind approved for chin augmentation.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
Juvéderm designed Vollure XC to treat moderate or severe facial wrinkles or folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It’s the longest-lasting filler designed for the mid-face, with results lasting around 18 months.
