Fight against the signs of aging with the Juvéderm collection of injectable wrinkle fillers. From treating lines and wrinkles on the face to giving you full, plump lips, Juvéderm treatments provide beautiful, natural-looking results. Juvéderm injections, offered by Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee, can be used alone or combined with other nonsurgical treatments to meet your aesthetic needs and goals. Juvéderm injectables are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) that is designed to restore the skin’s natural supply of HA and collagen for supple, healthy skin.
Rejuvenate your appearance without the time and expense of surgery with Juvéderm XC and Ultra XC:
- Juvéderm XC smoothes moderate to severe wrinkles on the face, including parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results of Juvéderm XC last up to one year.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC adds temporary volume to the lips in the upper lip, lower lip, or both while improving the appearance of vertical lines on the lips. The results of Juvéderm Ultra XC last up to one year.
The difference between the more known and common Juvéderm fillers and the newer versions, such as Vollure and Volbella, lie in how the molecules of hyaluronic acid are arranged. Dr. Lee also offers these two newest members of the Juvéderm family of fillers. Specifically, these fillers can be differentiated by their spreadability:
- Great for lip lines and lip volume, and to smooth out areas under the eyes, Volbella contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel for these delicate areas.
- Vollure, on the other hand, combines a healthy medium of spreadability to treat areas such as the nasolabial folds while still allowing the face to make expressions and movements.

The best candidates for Juvéderm injectable fillers are men or women who have facial lines and wrinkles they want to correct without surgery. Juvéderm can also help if you have naturally thin lips or age-related volume loss in your lips. Juvéderm injectable treatments are great if you want to improve your facial appearance without the expense and downtime of facial plastic surgery (facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift, lip implants).
Juvéderm injections typically only take 15 – 30 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated. The patient’s face will be cleaned and injections spots will be marked. To minimize discomfort during the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). After their treatment, patients can resume their normal routine, but strenuous activity like exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. Patients should avoid touching their face after their injections to avoid moving the filler into unintended areas.
What To Expect
Patients should see an immediate improvement after their Juvéderm treatment, but they may also see mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for 7 – 10 days after their injection. The results of Juvéderm injections last up to one year, but patients typically find that their results last longer after a few years of treatments. Talk to your plastic surgeon about when to book a touch-up or full treatment to maintain your results.
