JUVÉDERM® Injectable Treatments
JUVÉDERM® is an FDA-approved injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your skin, muscles, and tendons. Used as the base for JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers, this moisture-loving carbohydrate can safely add volume where the gradual loss of collagen, fat, hyaluronic acid and elastin in the skin has caused lines, folds, or hollows to form.
What are the benefits of JUVÉDERM®?
Men and women who opt for dermal fillers to rejuvenate their appearance typically do so during their middle age, though younger patients may also benefit from JUVÉDERM® injections. Because everyone’s skin ages at a different rate and in a different way, JUVÉDERM® can treat one or many problem areas, providing individualized results.
The clear gel also improves hydration. Its many benefits make wrinkles less noticeable and contours appear fuller, giving you a “liquid facelift.” JUVÉDERM® is not a single filler, but a family of dermal fillers—each with a specific formulation and focus. Get results that best suit your skin, face, and cosmetic goals.

Results are visible as soon as the injections are made. JUVÉDERM® is also versatile, in that it works well as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other cosmetic dermatology options, such as BOTOX® and laser treatments.
How is JUVÉDERM® administered?
Before your treatment with JUVÉDERM® at Denver Dermatology Center, you will be asked to provide a health history and to identify the problem areas you would like to address. Your injector will examine your skin to determine the best approach to treating those problem areas and to select the specific dermal fillers to meet your needs.
Once JUVÉDERM® is injected, the targeted areas will be gently massaged to distribute the gel evenly and uniformly, giving you a more natural appearance.
A typical session lasts less than 60 minutes.
What members of the JUVÉDERM® family are available at Denver Dermatology Center?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® is made specifically to add volume to the midface, where rounded apples of the cheeks convey a healthy youthfulness. As fat and collagen diminish over time, and what remains shifts downward, the midface can appear flat or hollow. The shifting tissue can also cause jowls to form lower down. VOLUMA® restores midface volume, creating round apples again for younger-looking contours and structural support for improved jawline definition. These results can last for up to two years.
Thin lips can be the result of collagen loss as a person grows older, or may be a lifelong issue due to the luck of genetics and heredity. No matter the cause of the problem, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® can be the solution. This dermal filler is created especially for the mouth, smoothing out fine lines that appear in the area, as well as adding moisturizing volume for a subtly fuller, healthier look. Results can last for up to a year.
Collagen loss around the mouth and nose area can create lines known as parentheses, because they look like the vertical, slightly curved punctuation marks. In cases where these lines are moderate to severe, VOLLURE™ can be used to soften their appearance. The dermal filler also works on marionette lines below the mouth, and corner lines at the sides of the mouth. Results can last for up to 18 months.
What is recovery like after JUVÉDERM® injections?
Since JUVÉDERM® treatments are nonsurgical, you can expect to recover in two to 12 days. To reduce the risk of bruising or bleeding, which are side effects common to any injections, avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), and blood thinners for a week prior to your session. Some patients may still experience localized swelling and bruising, depending on the injection site. This can be reduced with a cold compress. You should be able to apply makeup to the treated areas and resume normal activity right away.
Our team will help you achieve the natural-looking results you want. The specific JUVÉDERM® filler used and your individual facial characteristics will determine how long the improvements will last and how frequently you will need to return to maintain your results.
Safety and Risk
JUVÉDERM® has been safely and effectively used for millions of patients worldwide, but should not be used in patients with severe allergies or in patients with allergies to bacterial proteins. It is extremely important to choose an experienced injector to perform the treatment to ensure the best results.
