JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™, is the only FDA approved ﬁller speciﬁcally developed for the cheek area. Now we have a new treatment that can help correct age-related volume loss, in addition to the other JUVEDERM® products which help to smooth away wrinkles and folds in the lower-face.
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ is made with Allergan's proprietary VYCROSS™ technology, an advanced manufacturing process which results in a smooth gel that ﬂows easily and consistently.
This unique formulation contributes to the lift capacity to correct volume loss in the cheek area which is caused by ageing.
Additionally, JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ contains a small amount of lidocaine which helps to numb the area during treatment.
The most common side effects include temporary injection-site tenderness, swelling, ﬁrmness, lumps/bumps, bruising & redness. They were predominantly moderate, with a duration of two to four weeks.
* Your new look can last up to 18 months
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA™ is a new facial ﬁller speciﬁcally designed for gently restoring natural-looking lip volume and deﬁning lip contours. This new formulation results in less swelling and delivers a natural look and feel. The effect is instant and long lasting. It is clinically proven to last up to a year in the lips with a single 1 ml treatment.
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA™ is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body which helps maintain volume and elasticity in the skin. It is broken down by the body in one or two days and is constantly replaced.
However, as we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes and the moisturising and plumping effects of HA decrease. For this reason, HA is used in dermal ﬁller procedures to help restore lost hydration and improve the skin's volume and texture.
What makes this filler unique is its patented Vycross technology which, through more efficient cross linking, produces greater lift capacity and longer lasting results.

JUVEDERM® VOLIFT™ with Lidocaine the latest addition to the Juvéderm range of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers produced using the unique VYCROSS™ technology. This provides a versatile treatment option for patients who are looking for a discreet, natural look with minimal swelling and long-lasting result.
Over time, the cheeks, chin and jawline area can be impacted by the natural ageing process: a loss of volume or definition, and the appearance of 'static' wrinkles such as deeper nasolabial folds are among the key ageing concerns.
JUVEDERM® VOLIFT™ with Lidocaine is designed to smooth deep wrinkles for a refreshed look, as well as gently restoring natural-looking contours in the lower face.
Contouring and the treatment of deep skin depressions such as nasolabial folds, JUVEDERM® VOLIFT™ with Lidocaine provides a new treatment option estimated to deliver smooth, long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
A more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling and a smoother, defined appearance that also gives a greater lift than other Hyaluronic Acid fillers.
It also includes Lidocaine to ensure a more comfortable application.

- Side effects if they occur are usually mild or moderate and include swelling, tenderness at the injection site and lumps/bumps. These usually resolve in a few days.
