Have you ever stopped and considered how celebrities balance the natural aging process with keeping a flawless look? For some, it occurs naturally, but for most of them, regular rejuvenation treatments are necessary. In the world of facial rejuvenation, because of its multiple benefits, the JUVÉDERM®* line is one of the most sought-after products.

There are many uses of JUVÉDERM® on the market, and this can sometimes be confusing, but  JUVÉDERM® is a family of different gel products that have slightly different applications.  Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, and staff at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery can help you understand the differences in types of treatment and recommend just the right product for you.



What is JUVÉDERM®?

JUVÉDERM® is a temporary dermal filler collection that is used for facial enhancement procedures. While other gel fillers tend to have a granular texture, JUVÉDERM® has a smoother, malleable consistency. Made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, JUVÉDERM® works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. This adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to the skin and has a variety of applications.

Wrinkle Filling

One of the primary applications of JUVÉDERM® is to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM® works well to target smile lines parallel to the nose – the nasolabial folds. JUVÉDERM® products contain the local anesthetic lidocaine for comfortable injections, so you don’t have to stop smiling! A true smile reaches the eyes, and JUVÉDERM® is an FDA-approved and very popular treatment.


Lip Augmentation

As a gel filler, JUVÉDERM® works well not only to fill in wrinkles but also for lip augmentation and smoothing vertical lip lines. Again, because of its smooth consistency and comfortable injections, it is a great option for a fuller, more expressive smile. JUVÉDERM® also is an excellent treatment for the perioral lines around the lips. This product is a gentle, non-drastic option to help you regain confidence in your smile. 

For this specific use, the recommended product from the JUVÉDERM® line is the JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC or Volbella.

Cheek Fillers

Sometimes, after drastic weight loss, too much time in the sun, or age, cheeks can begin to lose a bit of their original fullness and sag gently. Gel fillers such as JUVÉDERM®  Voluma XC  are a comfortable and natural-looking approach to restoring cheeks to your preferred shape. Another thing to be noticed about this product is the resulting longevity – when injected by a skilled practitioner, the results can last anywhere upward to 24 months, which is a result not many fillers can boast. Because of that, JUVÉDERM®  Voluma XC is considered the longest-lasting hyaluronic acid filler on the market.

Chin Reshaping

Nowadays, TikTok trends, Snapchat “lenses,” and celebrities have highlighted the appeal of a sharp side profile, and one of the cornerstones to this profile is a clean jawline. JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC injections can help adjust and emphasize a clean and lovely side profile in a non-surgical way. Even more, they can restore firmness and youthfulness to the cheek skin. Once injected by a professional practitioner, the results can last as much as two years.  Juvederm Voluma XC is FDA approved to temporarily add volume to the cheeks and chin to reverse signs of aging by contouring the skin for a more youthful appearance. 

Side profile

Moderate to Severe Facial Lines

As we’ve seen earlier, JUVÉDERM®’s primary use is to fill wrinkles. When it comes to mild to moderate wrinkles and lines Juvederm Vollure XC is the number one choice.  While most hyaluronic acid fillers last up to 1 year, Vollure can last up to 18 months. However, what happens when we’re dealing with more intense or severe facial lines?  JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC, a stronger variant of the Ultra XC filler, effective against more severe nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and oral commissures.
