The Juvéderm family of injectable dermal fillers uses a trusted formula to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore volume to the lips and cheeks. Made with a base of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body, Juvéderm's advanced formula allows the consistency to be less granular for smoother results. Juvéderm is a safe, effective treatment that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients who would like to reduce the signs of aging. Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology offers the following Juvéderm family fillers and administers each one depending on the patient's unique needs. 


To add volume and enhance facial contours, our team offers one of Juvéderm's most popular formulas: Voluma XC. Volume loss may develop with age or younger patients may have flat cheeks from weight loss or a genetic disposition. Voluma XC is a nonsurgical treatment to relieve the gaunt, shallow contours by building up natural-looking volume that can last for up to two years.


Juvéderm Vollure XC is formulated with Allergan's  VYCROSS technology and offers a new approach to wrinkle correction. Vollure blends a special combination of molecular weights of hyaluronic acid that is able to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. One of the most exciting breakthroughs with Vollure is that the filler can last up to eighteen months in some patients. Vollure is typically injected in the nasolabial folds and other areas around the mouth where lines exist.


For thin, uneven lips, Juvéderm Volbella, formerly known as Ultra XC, can help create subtly fuller lips while also smoothing vertical lip lines. This is a simple nonsurgical treatment for patients who want a fuller lip appearance. Volbella is also made with the Allergan VYCROSS filler technology and hyaluronic acid to fill in the lips and smooth the lines around the mouth.


Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is an alternative to the Juvéderm Volbella filler treatment. While both are specifically designed to add volume to the lips and smooth lines in the mouth area, Ultra Plus XC is created for patients who are seeking a more dramatic enhancement to their lips. The Ultra Plus XC formula helps patients who need restoration from thinning lips due to age or are seeking an overall new and fuller lip.


Anyone who would like to replace volume loss in their under eye area or cheeks or plump and fill their lips is a candidate for one of the Juvéderm family fillers. Our board-certified dermatologists will help you determine which Juvéderm filler will best address your cosmetic concerns. 

What to Expect during JUVÉDERM injections

Juvéderm is a quick, outpatient procedure, administered by our board-certified dermatologists - Dr. Kathleen Welsh and Dr. Andrea Hui Austin. Before your treatment, a medical assistant will review the informed consent for the procedure, take “before” photos, and apply a topical numbing cream to help make the injections more comfortable. The amount of Juvéderm administered is dependent upon the depth of the wrinkles and location areas but typically, our doctors create natural-looking results and use at most two syringes per treatment. Some patients will need more or less of the product depending on the desired results.

How long is recovery after JUVÉDERM?

Juvéderm contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so patients should not experience discomfort, although there may be some redness and/or swelling at or around the injection sites following treatment. The injector may gently rub the areas of the face to help the filler spread evenly and smoothly. Depending on which Juvéderm filler is used, results may last anywhere from four months to two years. Consult with Dr. Welsh or Dr. Hui Austin to find out when you should return for more injections.
