Ever considered getting Juvederm injections? Here is the complete Juvederm Voluma guide, to help you learn more about this procedure.
Juvéderm® is an HA injectable gel that replaces the lost hyaluronic acid your skin has lost over time. Juvéderm plumps up lines, wrinkles, creases, lips, and even cheeks. It takes years away from your age by restoring volume. The results are immediate and natural-looking. Unlike other HA fillers, Juvéderm is the only one that is gel-based. Other HA fillers have a more granular consistency to them. Juvéderm will typically last about a year.
Adverse and common side effects may include slight bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site. Juvéderm injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
Your doctor eases Juvéderm gel into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures). Juvéderm temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
What is Juvederm Made Of?
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm™ provides a smooth, natural look and feel, so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.†
- Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm™ injectable gel and another dermal filler† preferred Juvéderm™!
- Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
Juvederm Before and After
With Juvéderm™ the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor’s office for treatment and step right back into your life.
*Juvéderm™ is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
How Good Is Juvederm?
At 24 weeks, 96 percent of nasolabial folds treated with Juvederm had maintained clinically significant correction, and 81 percent maintained the correction for 1 year or more. Results were similar for those subjects with follow-up through 48 weeks after repeated treatment. The median volume required for repeated treatment with Juvederm was significantly less than that for initial treatment (0.7 ml versus 1.6 ml).

In addition, JUVÉDERM® dermal filler is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler developed using a proprietary, technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize a gel particle suspension formulation.
How Long Do Juvederm fillers last?
The Juvederm fillers usually last for about 18 months (1 year and a half). Ideally, you should come every 12 months to a follow-up appointment, so that your doctor can see how your filler is presenting.
What is Juvederm Best for?
The Juvederm injectable fillers allow patients to sport a younger look. These hyaluronic acid-based fillers work best for facial wrinkles and folds, as well as lip enhancement.
