JUVÉDERM® XC Injectable Gels
JUVÉDERM® XC Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to skin and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles, fine lines and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps add volume and hydration. JUVÉDERM® XC Injectable Gel is a safe, effective, and non-surgical option for those that want to diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is a non-animal dermal filler of smooth consistency that, unlike most hyaluronic acid fillers which have granular consistencies, allows for easy injection and instant natural results.

JUVÉDERM® Voluma® XC
DEFY GRAVITY! A more youthful appearance starts with the apples of your cheeks. Juvederm® Voluma® XC is the first and only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area. Voluma is designed to instantly add volume to the cheek area which creates lift and contour to restore a subtle youthful look.
JUVÉDERM® Vollure® XC
SMOOTH your parentheses lines with Vollure® XC! Over time as skin ages, it thins, and loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, Juvederm® Vollure® XC can add volume to smooth these lines and folds from beneath. Vollure® XC allows for a softer more subtle, smoothing of the superficial facial lines with long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM® Volbella® XC
VOLUMIZE your lips with Juvederm® Volbella® XC! Many factors such as sun exposure or repeated muscle movements can cause unwanted lip lines. Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Volbella® XC is the first and only filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for 1 year. Juvederm® Volbella® XC is tailored to provide subtle volume to the lips and the lines around them less noticeable.
