Juvéderm® is one of the most popular FDA-approved dermal fillers used for correcting mild to moderate facial lines and creases. Composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance already present in skin, Juvéderm® is highly effective at temporarily filling in facial depressions, deep wrinkles, facial folds, and forehead furrows.

How does Juvéderm® correct facial wrinkles?
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid gel that, when injected into the skin, attracts water like a sponge, thereby plumping the areas where it has been injected. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm® can be injected directly below facial wrinkles to fill them out, or they can be used indirectly (e.g. injections to the cheek area can help correct jowling below the cheeks).
We can also use Juvéderm® to increase volume in the lips. This filler works for so many different applications thanks to the variety of available formulations (Vollure, VOLUMA, or Ultra XC), which allow our injectors to precisely customize your results.
Who should use Juvéderm®?
At Little Rock Cosmetic Surgery Center, we often recommend Juvéderm® to patients who want to address the following:
- Treatment of nasolabial (nasal-labial) folds or smile lines
- Treatment of glabellar furrows (crow’s feet)
- Lip augmentation
- Restoring volume to the cheeks
- Smoothing wrinkles in the hands and neck
If you’re looking for a cost-effective treatment to smooth wrinkles and fine lines in your face, hands, and neck and/or increase volume in your cheeks and lips without surgery, Juvéderm® may be the perfect option for you.
Are Juvéderm® fillers safe?
Juvéderm® is very safe; first approved by the FDA for cosmetic treatments in 2006, Juvéderm® has helped millions of people smooth their fine lines and wrinkles and volumize their cheeks and lips without surgery. The effects of Juvéderm® (and all other hyaluronic acid-based fillers) are reversible with injections of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid molecules.
Juvéderm® Fillers at Little Rock Cosmetic Surgery Center
While all Juvéderm® dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid gel to smooth skin and volumize facial features, different Juvéderm® products are used to provide specific results tailored just for you. All Juvéderm fillers feel natural under the skin, but each product has a unique consistency depending on its purpose. The specific consistency is determined by Juvéderm®’s Vycross technology, an optimal ratio of small and large hyaluronic acid molecules that contribute to a Juvéderm product’s lift capacity and duration. At Little Rock Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer the following Juvéderm® fillers:
Juvéderm Vollure® is a moderately firm gel formulated for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). By restoring lost hyaluronic acid, Vollure® provides your skin with moisture and softness, leaving it supple and smooth.
Juvéderm VOLUMA® is the thickest, longest-lasting Juvéderm formula. It is injected into the cheek and mid-face areas to correct age-related volume loss and restore a smooth, youthful look for up to 2 years. VOLUMA® works to specifically address the loss of subcutaneous fat in all three areas of the cheek (apex, apple, and hollow), subtly lifting the mid-face and restoring a youthful contour.
Juvéderm Ultra XC®
Juvéderm Ultra XC® is a moderately thin, very flexible gel ideal for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation. Whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips, Juvéderm Ultra XC® adds just the right fullness and volume to your lips.
What are the side effects of Juvéderm® fillers?
Side effects of Juvéderm® are typically very minimal and resolve themselves within just a few days. The most commonly reported side effects of Juvéderm® include:
- Bruising and/or discoloration
If your side effects persist for more than 30 days, contact your surgeon to discuss treatment.
How long do Juvéderm® fillers last?
Juvéderm injections typically last between 6 to 12 months in the nasolabial folds, 3 to 6 months in the lips, and over 9 months in the tear troughs. Juvéderm’s VOLUMA® and Vollure® fillers can last up to 2 years in the cheeks and up to 18 months in the nasolabial folds.
How quickly will I see results from Juvéderm®?
You can expect to see the benefits of your Juvéderm® treatment in as little as a few days. You may experience some initial swelling or bruising around the injection sites, but once this subsides, your skin should appear visibly smoother and fuller.
Do Juvéderm® injections hurt?
All Juvéderm® injections contain a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthesia that helps numb the injection site and minimize any pain or discomfort. Patients regularly report that Juvéderm® injections are easy and painless.
