Juvéderm® is one of the most popular brands of lip filler and injectable wrinkle treatments. The products are made with hyaluronic acid that works with your skin to soften lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm® is also recommended for non-surgical lip enhancement.
How Does Juvéderm® Work?
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid gel dermal filler that increases the amount of water in your skin. This plumps your skin to enhance facial contours and reduce lines and wrinkles.
What Is Juvéderm® Used For?
We may recommend Juvéderm® injections for perioral rejuvenation and lip enhancement. Juvéderm® dermal fillers for smile lines and marionette lines fill in your wrinkles to give you a younger appearance. Juvéderm® as a lip filler adds volume and makes your lips feel soft and supple.
We offer several of the products in the Juvéderm® family.
- Juvéderm® Ultra XC adds volume to your lips, and it can be used for nasolabial folds
- Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is recommended for moderate to severe nasolabial folds

Is Juvéderm® Ultra® XC Or Juvéderm® Volbella® XC Better For Lip Enhancement?
If you are looking for a way to enhance your lips, Juvéderm® Ultra® XC and Juvéderm® Volbella® XC are excellent options. Both products deliver natural-looking results. Volbella® XC results are subtle, whereas Ultra XC tends to produce a more classic look.
Many patients find that treatment with Juvéderm® Ultra XC is more comfortable due to the thinner gel consistency. If you are especially sensitive to injections, this may be your best choice.
For patients who want to enhance their lips and soften vertical lip lines, Juvéderm® Volbella® XC is the better choice. Volbella® also tends to last longer than Juvéderm® Ultra XC.

What Is The Procedure For Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is administered with a series of injections. The needle is very small, and most patients remain comfortable during the procedure. If you are especially sensitive to needles and injections, we can numb your skin prior to the facial and lip injections. As a lip filler product, Juvéderm® tends to cause more discomfort compared to facial injections.
