One of the more frustrating things about the aging process is seeing the visible changes in your facial skin. It can be an overwhelming feeling when you start to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin appear over time. Another indicator of aging skin is volume loss throughout the cheeks, temples, and midface. However, restoring the smooth, youthful texture and appearance of your skin may be simpler than you realize with the Juvéderm collection of dermal fillers.
What Are Juvéderm Dermal Fillers?
The Juvéderm collection is a collection of injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers primarily used to rejuvenate the facial skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These dermal fillers also add natural-looking volume to the skin and lips to create a smoother, fuller appearance.
How Do Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule found in the deep layers of our skin - the version found in dermal fillers is a synthetic molecule that mimics your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is essential for keeping the skin moisturized, repairing tissue, protecting the skin from microorganisms, and holding essential proteins like collagen and elastin together.
At a certain age, our bodies stop producing new hyaluronic acid altogether, which can leave our skin vulnerable to losing its youthful, radiant appearance. So, when a hyaluronic acid-based filler is injected into your skin, it helps to replace your body’s lost hyaluronic acid and restore your skin’s volume and vibrant complexion.
The Juvéderm Product Line
There are several different dermal fillers in the Juvéderm collection, each of which offers its own distinct purposes and advantages. When you have your consultation with one of our providers at Hazen Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, they’ll help you determine which Juvéderm filler is best suited to help you achieve your unique aesthetic goals.
Juvéderm Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler designed specifically to lift and highlight the face's natural contours. This filler is a wonderful option if you’re looking to add volume to your cheekbones, chin, or jawline. In addition to adding volume, Voluma builds structure in the supporting layers of your skin that may have been lost as a result of the aging process.
Juvéderm Ultra is an innovative dermal filler used to refine the shape, volume, and fullness of the lips. Juvéderm Ultra is also an excellent option to fill the areas around the mouth where lines have formed, such as the nasolabial folds or marionette lines. If your lips appear too thin or the area around your mouth feels sunken, this filler can provide you with a perfectly balanced but enhanced appearance.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus
Juvéderm Ultra Plus is another powerful dermal filler used for deeper lines and wrinkles, where further augmentation is needed. Utilizing a proprietary cross-linked formula, this filler can reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles around the mouth, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Juvéderm Volbella is one of the most effective hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers for smoothing lines around the mouth, also known as perioral lines or lip lines. As the softest filler in the Juvéderm Portfolio, Volbella can also be used for subtle lip enhancement, and to brighten the appearance of dark under-eye hollows (tear troughs).
Juvéderm Vollure is an excellent dermal filler for rejuvenating the lower face area. This hyaluronic acid-based filler can restore lost volume, enhance the contours of the face, and significantly reduce the appearance of marionette lines and nasolabial folds. Juvéderm Vollure is flexible enough for many different applications throughout the face and Dr. Hazen may use a combination of these fillers to achieve a balanced look.

- Enhancing the definition of the cheeks, chin, and jawline
- Enhancing the shape and volume of the lips

Am I a Candidate for Juvéderm Dermal Fillers?
Adults who would like to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin could be good candidates for Juvéderm dermal fillers. To be an ideal candidate for these treatments, you should:
