What Is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler designed to treat moderate to severe lines and folds and add volume to the face. Its key ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that unfortunately diminishes with age. HA is key to a face that looks smooth, hydrated, supple, and younger. The Juvéderm collection contains multiple products that each address specific issues.

Natural, Beautiful Results Without Surgery

As you age, your face loses volume. This leads to flattened cheeks, sagging skin, and the formation of folds, lines, and wrinkles. As time marches on, these signs of aging only worsen. Juvéderm dermal fillers can turn back the hands of time and rejuvenate your face to its once youthful appearance.

The Juvéderm collection treats multiple facial aging conditions and areas. At Zenn Plastic Surgery, our expert injector Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS, uses Juvéderm products for patients seeking to regain a youthful appearance of the face. These are typically patients who seek to improve signs of aging in their cheeks, lips, and mouth area.

Juvéderm Ultra

The gold standard of dermal fillers. Used primarily for the treatment of:

  • Lip lines
  • Thinning lips

Juvéderm Ultra Plus

A thicker gel than its sister product Ultra used for more severe, deep facial wrinkles. Typically, injections are deeper than other dermal fillers. Ultra is used primarily in areas like:

  • Nasolabial or smile lines, the lines that extend from the nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette lines, the lines that begin at the corners of your mouth & extend down toward your jawline
  • Deeply depressed areas in your cheeks


Volbella is a smooth, thin, easily spreadable gel with the lowest concentration of HA of all the other Juvéderm fillers. Volbella is used primarily for lip augmentation and is known for natural-looking results. Volbella plumps and minimizes fine lines on the lips. Used for:

  • Fine lip lines
  • Smooth the delicate skin under the eyes


Vollure is a versatile, mid-level injectable facial filler used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and lines, and to restore a youthful appearance in the lower face. Vollure is significant because it still allows for natural facial expressions and movement. Vollure is typically used for things such as:

  • Nasolabial folds, sometimes also known as laugh lines
  • Marionette lines or the parenthesis around the mouth


Voluma has the highest HA concentration of all the Juvéderm collection of treatments. It is a thick gel used to help fight the effects of age-related volume loss in the mid-face, such as hollow cheeks. Voluma helps create a face that appears plumper and firmer, and is sometimes called a non-surgical facelift and boost. Voluma is usually used in the following areas:

  • Cheek
  • Cheekbone area
  • Chin
  • Enhance lip volume

How Does Juvéderm Work?

Zenn Plastic Surgery’s Master Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, administers Juvéderm into the mid to deep dermis using a thin needle. The middle layer of the skin, the dermis, is where blood vessels, connective tissue, nerve endings, oil glands, and sweat glands lie. Once injected, Juvéderm lifts and adds volume to targeted areas.

The pliable gel consistency of Juvéderm is what makes it work so well and what provides smoother and more natural-looking results than dermal fillers of the past. Results last between six and nine months, longer than most other dermal fillers. With regular treatment, great results can last even longer.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Side effects are rare, but some patients may experience redness, tenderness, and discomfort around the injection site. These issues usually resolve in around three days. Some people experience discoloration, firmness, bumps, bruises, and swelling. These rare side effects generally go away within a week.

How Much Does This Facial Filler Treatment Cost?

Juvéderm injections cost between $800 and $1300 per syringe, though this can vary. Some treatments require a second syringe of Juvéderm to achieve the patient’s desired results.

Is Juvéderm Right For Me?

If the wrinkles and lines on your face are not from underlying muscle activity such as laughing or frowning, their root cause is lost tissue structure, which can be resolved by Juvéderm. Using a dermal filler for these tissues plumps and revitalizes the face, resulting in a youthful-looking contour and a reduction in wrinkles. If Juvéderm products are not the right choice for your desired results, our expert injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, will explore other HA fillers or alternative skin-smoothing alternatives.
