Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin, that helps to add volume and hydration.
Juvederm® Injectable Gel is eased under the skin into the mid to deep dermis of the face to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Unlike many collagen-based fillers, Juvederm® provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel.

Types of Juvederm
There are four types of Juvederm available for various uses by your plastic surgeon:
- Juvederm Ultra
- Juvederm Ultra Plus
- Juvederm Ultra XC
- Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
The XC formulations of both products have added lidocaine, an anesthetic to make the injection more comfortable.There are 3 different types of Juvederm and Dr. Kasden will discuss which one will bring the best results to your face. The most common areas where Juvederm is used are:
- Lips – Nasolabial folds (the lines just lateral to the mouth/nose)
- Marionette lines (the lines just below the lip corners)
- Tear trough (area along the orbital rim)
One advantage to Juvederm is its pliant gel consistency, which may provide a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors.
Another advantage to using Juvederm is it may last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months, if you have follow-up treatment a few weeks after the first treatment.
We invite you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Kasden and his staff to determine if Juvederm is right for you. They will speak with you about your specific goals and show you how you can obtain a smoother, youthful looking face.
