Juvederm is an injectable filler that reduces folds, wrinkles, and lines by filling in the space where the line has formed, as well as plumping lips and filling depressions in the skin. Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally, so there is no risk of rejection. It takes about 9-10 months for your body to naturally absorb Juvederm, but some patients have results that last a year or longer.
How Juvederm Works
Hyaluronic acid is an excellent filler, but traditionally had the problem of being absorbed by the body in a matter of hours or days. Juvederm solves that problem by specially cross-linking the hyaluronic acid to slow the absorption rate. The resulting cross-linked gel is safe, stable, and lasts up to a year in some applications. The gel is very easy to inject, is nearly painless, and has immediate results.
Where Can I Use Juvederm
Juvederm can be used to help nearly any fold line or wrinkle. This picture shows some of the more common uses. This is not an exhaustive illustration, as we can use Juvederm in a wide variety of circumstances depending on your particular goals and your desired results.

Juvederm Ultra XC is the most common variation of the product, and we charge $500 for the first 1ml syringe, and $400 for additional syringes. Feel free to bring friends with and share the discounted syringes ($450 apiece if you each buy one 1ml syringe and split the discount).
Juvederm Voluma XC
If your cheeks have lost some of their firmness, then Voluma might be the best option for you. This injectable gel lifts and fills the cheeks for a younger and firmer look. The treatment lasts 2 years, and can be neutralized at any time just like all Juvederm products so there is no risk. More info about Voluma can be found HERE on our Voluma page.
