What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. This innovative treatment is one of the latest that dermatological research has to offer. Juvéderm products are a hyaluronic acid (HA) product that comes from sugar. It is actually natural to your body and even found in your body naturally.
One of the best things about this treatment is that it involves using natural ingredients, with impressive results. Not only do you see a vast improvement in wrinkles and fine lines throughout the face and neck, but you won’t experience the side effects that other fillers have often been known for. It is also safe for all types of skin.

Juvéderm Volbella XC
Juvéderm Volbella XC is the first FDA approved dermal filler that is proven to increase lip fullness and correct lines around the lips.
It works using Allergan’s Vycross technology to blend different weights of hyaluronic acid in order to stimulate collagen and elastin. The Vycross technology delivers a smooth gel which results in a more natural look and feel. This unique technology means that the product absorbs less water, which leads to reduced swelling as opposed to other fillers.
Volbella can last up to 1 year and is a great treatment option if you are looking to add contour and subtle volume to your lips.
Juvéderm Voluma is the first filler formulated with lidocaine that is FDA approved to restore volume in the cheeks, lips and nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Vollure is a dermal filler that Dr. Kronberg uses in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. This filler moves with your smile since its more elastic.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm is injected with a microfine needle into your skin to fill wrinkles or add volume in areas such as frown crease, wrinkles around the mouth, plump the lips among other. The serum fills in these areas, creating a smoother and more refreshed look. It is blended with a small amount of lidocaine to help make the procedure more comfortable.
She is the best. I have had fillers in other offices and no one has ever cared about my discomfort. They used a great numbing cream and I barely felt anything. I loved her technique and am very happy with my results . Her office was very nice and pleasant. Her office staff was excellent and made me feel comfortable. – Jamey – Realself review

Candidates for Juvéderm Fillers
Juvéderm fillers are ideal for those who would like to soften the appearance of perioral lines, marionette lines, and creases (smoker’s lines) around your lips. It is perfect for those who want to add volume to the lips without surgery or downtime.
What to Expect After Juvéderm Treatment
The great thing about Juvéderm injections is that this is a non-surgical treatment, so you can go back to your normal daily activities right after the procedure. Many patients go back to work after the procedure, however you may have mild swelling and bruising for up to three days.
You will see results immediately. The treated areas should look better right away and actually improve a lot more over 3 to 5 days. The product acts like a sponge and absorbs water. So the results gradually improve over a 5 day span. It is also recommended to not exercise the remainder of the day after a treatment.
How Long Do Juvéderm Results Last?
The Juvéderm products last about 8 months to a year. Thicker fillers like Ultra Plus tend to last about a year. The cheek enhancing and tightening Voluma last about 18 months to 2 years.
Juvéderm Side Effects
After treatment you may experience some swelling and bruising which generally resolves in a couple of days. Proper use of ice and compression may help minimize bruising and swelling. Sleep with a 30-degree angle and avoid sleeping on one side to avoid disturbing the placement of the filler. You may take Tylenol for pain but not aspirin or ibuprofen which may increase bruising. You may also want to avoid Vitamin E and fish oil to minimize complications. Here are some of the most common side effects after treatment:
- As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
How Much Does Juvéderm Cost?
The average 1 cc syringe costs $650 and ½ cc syringes are approximately $450. 1cc Syringe of Voluma is $1000.
Is Juvéderm Treatment Painful?
We use a very good topical cream that numbs the skin beautifully in 30 minutes. With this, ice packs and sometimes a dental block for the lip lines the patients do beautifully and are very comfortable with the treatment.
