Juvéderm is a product line of facial fillers that can be injected into the skin to achieve a more youthful appearance. Juvéderm products vary, and everyone’s aesthetic medical plan is different. When we hear Juvéderm, we often think that is the injection itself, however, there are several types of injections and we will do an overview of all fillers in this article with some before and after pictures of real patients.
Why Did I Research Juvederm Fillers?
I have been interested in getting facial fillers for quite some time, but I wanted to make sure I had all the information before taking the plunge and getting the work done. Now, I want to share that information with you if you have been wondering about facial fillers as well.
It is good to know that Juvéderm fillers are something that you will need to keep up with. So, for that reason, I wanted to do as much research as I could before making this investment.
To get a quick glimpse at the Juvéderm Commercial video, check out this below.
Who Manufactures Juvéderm?
After digging a little deeper I discovered that Juvéderm was first owned by a US company called Allergan plc, which had an Irish partner named Actavis. Actavis has since been sold to another company, and Allergan was recently acquired in 2019 by another company, AbbVie for $63 million.
What Are The Most Popular Filler From Juvéderm?
Juvéderm has several types of injections and each one is better suited for different applications. Not all fillers are used in the US and Canada – some are only approved in one area.
The different fillers that Juvéderm offers that are FDA approved in the US and Canada are:
- Juvéderm VOLITE
- Juvéderm VOLBELLA
- Juvéderm VOLIFT
- Juvéderm VOLUMA
- Juvéderm VOLUX
- Juvéderm VOLLURE
- Juvéderm XC
- Juvéderm ULTRA XC
What Is The Difference Between Juvederm Fillers?
Based on my research I found out that all Juvéderm fillers are made with hyaluronic acid. Our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, but as we age we start to produce less of it, leaving our skin less plump and allowing wrinkles to show through.
Juvéderm fillers can help with this! AS I mentioned above, some Juvederm fillers are better for different areas of the face.
We will go through the different types of fillers next, where they are best used in the face, and how long they last. This is great information to know because Juvéderm injections will be something that if you like them, you will need to keep up with them in the future.
Juvéderm VOLITE can be used all over the face and neck. This treatment is best for anyone with deep wrinkles or lots of texture in the skin.
It is injected into these sites and plumps up the area and smoothes it. This injection usually lasts for about 10 months.
Juvéderm VOLBELLA is the injection that is used for the lips and around the lip area. This treatment makes the lips look fuller, corrects any “lipstick” lines, and any fine lines surrounding the mouth.
This treatment should only be used on patients at least 21 years old and can last up to a year.
Juvéderm VOLIFT is used around the mouth area to reduce the look of wrinkles and smile lines. Patients can expect results to last over a year. It is similar to the Juvéderm VOLITE, and when you have a consultation at a clinic that provides Juvéderm injections they will go over which one is best for you.
Juvéderm VOLUMA is best used for the cheek and chin area. This injection will plump up the high points of your face and the chin area, making your jawline and face in general look slimmer and more chiselled.
VOLUMA injections usually last about 24 months and should only be used on patients over 21 years of age.
Juvéderm VOLUX is another injection that can be used for the jawline and chin area. This injection is more of a defining treatment rather than a plumping treatment.
The results from this Juvéderm injection can last up to 2 years!
Juvéderm VOLLURE is similar to Juvéderm VOLITE. It can be used all over the face and neck and is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. VOLLURE usually lasts longer – up to 18 months on average.
VOLLURE is mostly used in the US market whereas VOLITE is used more in Canada. VOLLURE should only be used in patients over 21 years of age.
Juvéderm XC is used in lines and wrinkles that are usually deeper, like your parenthesis lines. It is for more severe wrinkles and can usually last up to a year.
Juvéderm ULTRA XC
Juvéderm ULTRA XC is used for Juvéderm lip fillers, making the lips look bigger and plumper. It can also be used around the eye area, correcting fine lines.
It can also be used for correcting deep smile lines around the mouth. Patients should be at least 21 years old. This injection usually lasts about 1 year.
Which Juvederm Fillers Are Recommended for Lips, Under Eyes, Cheek, Jawline: Before and After Pictures
Like I have mentioned above, Juvéderm injections are great for different areas of the face. Here is a quick overview of where each Juvéderm injection is best used for:
For lip injections, you will want to see a medical aesthetician who uses either Juvéderm ULTRA XC or Juvéderm VOLBELLA.
For under-eye injections and lip filler, Juvéderm ULTRA XC is usually the best option for fine lines. Check out this before and after below:
Cheek and jawline injections are almost always Juvéderm VOLUMA or Juvéderm VOLUX, and your medical aesthetician can determine which is best for you. Check out this jawline before and after using Juvéderm below:
It is always best to consult with your medical aesthetician first, as they are the experts and can give you the best advice on what Juvéderm injection type to get. While having all the right information is great, I know I will be trusting my medical professional when it comes time to get the injections.
How Long Do Juvederm Fillers Last?
The main question I had when researching Juvéderm injections was: “How long does Juvéderm last?” and I’m sure it was one of your first questions too!
Juvéderm injections can last anywhere from 9-24 months.
This will all depend on where your injection site is, how you react to the treatment, and how well you take care of it.
Remember, Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is already produced in our bodies. So, because it is a natural chemical, it does fade away over time.
Are Juvéderm Fillers Safe?
Yes! Juvéderm is very safe and thousands of people get injections every year. There are some risks involved, but nothing to be overly concerned about. Most side effects that happen will go away within a couple of days or up to 30 days.
People usually experience some pain and swelling where the needle went into their skin, and sometimes bruising can occur too.
If you have a history of having extreme allergic reactions, you may want to consider not getting Juvéderm injections.
Juvéderm also contains lidocaine which is a numbing agent to help with any discomfort and is injected into the skin as well. This was great news for me as one of my main concerns was also pain or discomfort. If you have had any allergic reactions to lidocaine as well, Juvéderm injections should be skipped.
