Fillers Q & A

Beja Aesthetics

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a filler made up of hyaluronic acid. A substance naturally found in your body, hyaluronic acid absorbs water and acts like a cushioning agent, filling in the gaps. It also delivers nutrients, makes skin elastic, and helps retain moisture. When you have Juvederm injected into your skin, it fills in areas beneath the surface of your skin, leaving you with a smooth complexion.

What is Juvéderm Volbella® XC?

Juvéderm Volbella XC contains hyaluronic acid mixed in a smooth gel that flows smoothly into your skin. It’s specially designed to augment lips and correct perioral lines, which are the fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, including:

  • Smokers’ lines or lipstick lines: vertical lines above your upper lip
  • Smile lines: parentheses on both sides of your mouth
  • Nasolabial folds: lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette lines: lines that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin

The hyaluronic acid gel restores volume at the injection area. As a result, it effectively plumps lips and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, creating results that can last up to one year.*

What is Juvéderm Voluma® XC?

As you age, you may notice that your cheeks have lost volume and definition. This change occurs as your skin loses tone and the cushioning layer of fat thins. Juvéderm Voluma XC was specially developed to treat this problem, which is called age-related midface volume loss.

When this injectable is placed into the cheek area, it restores a more youthful appearance by adding volume, providing lift, and improving the contour of your cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma XC produces natural-looking results that can last up to two years.*

What is Juvéderm Vollure™ XC?

Juvéderm Vollure XC is the first dermal filler to be FDA approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, specifically nasolabial folds. Like all the Juvéderm products, it contains a long-lasting hyaluronic acid in a gel base, but in this injectable, the gel was created with the firmness needed to correct deep wrinkles and folds.

You may need a touch-up at one month for optimal results, but about 80% of people in a clinical trial were satisfied with the results at six months, and over two-thirds were still satisfied at 18 months.*

What is Juvéderm® XC?

Juvéderm® XC targets moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, primarily parentheses lines or smile lines around your nose and mouth. When it’s injected, Juvéderm® XC adds enough volume to lift and diminish the wrinkles and give your skin’s surface a smoother appearance. The results you achieve may last up to one year.*

Are there different parts of my face that I can have treated?

Yes. Juvederm helps to improve multiple areas of concern. Juvederm is beneficial for lifting and contouring your cheeks, filling in wrinkles, fine lines, and folds, plumping lips and smoothing vertical lip lines.

Should I be worried about pain during the injections?

No. Prior to receiving Juvederm injections, a numbing cream with lidocaine is applied to the area being treated. Once the topical cream is applied, your areas of concern will react to the numbing agent, and help to reduce any discomfort you may experience.

When will I begin to see results, and how long will they last?

You should start seeing an improvement in your skin almost instantly. Because you might have some swelling or redness in the area, it may take a couple days to see optimal results. Exactly how long Juvederm injections last, does, however, depend on the area you are having treated and the severity of your blemishes or wrinkles. Most patients report having smooth skin with Juvederm for 1-2 years.

Will multiple appointments be necessary?

Probably not. Appointments tend to last between 15-60 minutes, depending on whether you are having a same-day consultation. Your dedicated skincare expert will go over your expectations and needs, prior to injections.
