What It Is
Juvederm is the brand name given to a range of FDA-approved anti-aging injectables. These products – which are designed to target different facial aging concerns – are dermal fillers, meaning they contain hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. The HA within the injected gel works to immediately correct key signs of aging while stimulating long-term collagen production.
The Juvederm family includes:
- Juvederm Plus XC: This classic dermal filler is designed to minimize lines around the lips and nose, with results lasting up to one year.
- Juvederm Voluma: This injectable is used to fill the cheek area, which adds volume and minimizes wrinkles in the mid-facial region for up to two years.
- Juvederm Vollure: This dermal filler treats more moderate and severe facial lines – particularly around the mouth and nose – with results lasting for up to 18 months.
- Juvederm Volbella: This anti-aging injectable increases lip volume while smoothing wrinkles and lines, with results that last for one year.

How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm products contain hyaluronic acid (HA) in varying amounts. The overall goal of HA is to provide immediate lift at the injection site. Think of it like scaffolding for the skin!
HA is also known to increase collagen production, which is why dermal fillers tend to last longer than other anti-aging injectables. Finally, HA is renowned for its ability to retain water, which is why clients who undergo Juvederm injections have such smooth and hydrated-looking skin.
Is Juvederm Painful?
Juvederm products are injected via a fine-tip needle into the desired treatment area. The procedure can be uncomfortable for clients afraid of needles, which is why a numbing cream is used to minimize any discomfort. Most patients feel a slight burning or minor discomfort at the injection site for the first 72 hours after treatment.
What Is The Recovery Time?
There’s no recovery time associated with Juvederm injections; clients can return right to their normal routines immediately after their treatment session. You might see slight redness and bruising at the injection site, but this disappears within a few days. Your results will last anywhere from one to two years, depending on the product used.
