Injectable dermal fillers like Juvederm are a popular way to reduce wrinkles, lines and folds. They are also a great way to boost your self-confidence and improve the overall appearance of your skin. At Dolce Aesthetics in Scottsdale and Chandler, we offer the entire JUVEDERM collection of injectable dermal fillers to help correct signs of aging and give you an overall younger-looking appearance.
The main ingredient in Juvederm and Restylane is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring carbohydrate molecule that’s found in the body and has a natural ability to attract and retain water. This is what allows Juvederm and Restylane to plump skin, smooth fine lines, fill in deep wrinkles, and even create fuller lips.
Using a gel-like substance, the fillers in the Juvederm line of products are injected into the treatment area to smooth and restore volume. The injections are virtually painless, and you can return to your daily activities immediately following treatment.
There are many different formulas in the Juvederm family, each with a different level of flexibility or firmness for skin injection. Depending on your aesthetic goals, your doctor will suggest which filler best suits you.
Juvederm Volbella is the softest and thinnest of the dermal fillers in the Juvederm family for smoothing fine lines and shallow folds. With a low water affinity, it won’t provide much plumping but it will also cause the least amount of swelling.
Another filler in the Juvederm line of products, Juvederm Voluma is a thicker, stronger filler that is most often used for enhancing the cheeks or providing structure to the chin. With a higher G Prime and a low water affinity, it is able to give you more structural support while still being pliable enough for your face to move and express itself naturally.
The results of Juvederm can last between 9 to 12 months, depending on the area being treated and your own metabolism. After this time, the filler is broken down by your body’s natural aging process and the area returns to its prior state.
When choosing your filler, your doctor will consider several factors including your goals, age and lifestyle. The most common areas where Juvederm is used are the lips, cheeks and nasolabial folds.

Voluma XC and Vollure XC are two popular fillers in the Juvederm family, and both contain lidocaine for a more comfortable procedure. The XC versions are less painful than traditional Juvederm and don’t require a separate anesthetic ahead of time.
Both of these fillers are based on a biotechnologically engineered, non-immunogenic, stabilized HA gel particle that has a similar texture and resilience to the natural substance in your skin, collagen. The hyaluronic acid in the fillers helps to reduce moderate wrinkles and folds by binding to water molecules to add volume, while also lifting and softening the skin’s appearance.
