Juvederm is one of the latest dermal fillers, introduced by Allergan, the company which manufacturers Botox, to the market of Unites States. Quite similar to Restylane, it is also hyaluronic-acid-based filler. Yet, what gives the JUVÉDERM gel (injectable) its long lasting ability is its one-of-kind manufacturing process which involves the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of all hyaluronic acid dermal filler available currently in the market. This process lets create a gel that has consistency and flows easily into the skin and offers a natural, smooth look and feel.
The Juvederm injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler, recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Its smooth, consistent nature helps restore the skin’s volume and smoothen facial folds and wrinkles, like “parentheses” (nasolabial folds- the creases running from your nose’s bottom to the corners of your mouth) or “smile limes”.
With Juvederm, you get immediate results with the least downtime. Most of the patients need only a single treatment to achieve perfect wrinkle smoothing and the results can last up to 6 months and even more than that. Juvederm can be used anywhere on the face, with highest success in nasolabial folds (lines running from the nose to the mouth’s corners), lips and marionette lines (he lines running from the corners of the mouth to the jaw line).
We, at Rolle Oral & Facial Surhery, are pleased to offer Juvederm as an option of treatment for people who want to add smoothness and volume to their face skin and hence improve their appearance.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injected-filler treatment, approved by the FDA, used to reduce acne scars and wrinkles, treat dark circles and deep folds under the eyes, and to enhance cheeks, lips and chin by adding to the facial tissue volume.
How does Juvederm work?
Juvederm makes use of a Hyaluronic acid solution to add volume to your skin, as well as lift it and make it smooth. Hyaluronic acid occurs in the human body as a natural nutrient delivery system, as well as a cushioning and hydrating agent. With age, the natural resources of our body diminish over time making our skin in need of a boost. Juvederm provides this boost, lifting and hydrating the skin with volume and nutrients.
The Juvederm process explained.
After you have a consultation with Dr. Richard Rolle where he will enlighten about the treatment most suitable to you, the main Juvederm treatment will take only about 5 minutes. It might take the fillers a few days to settle in to the final shape, but more often, the result is immediate.
How long will the effect of Juvederm last?
The longevity of the fillers more often depends on the area that is treated with it, the skin and the injecting technique. We, at Rolle Oral & Facial Surgery, will be able to provide you with a more approx. estimation of the duration of your specific treatment during your consultation.
Do the filler treatments hurt?
Bruising and pain are normal. However, we have skin anesthetics which will make you feel comfortable during the injecting along with cold packs post treatment. This helps reduce bruising or any discomfort.
Are there different kinds of Juvederm?
There are, yes. At Rolle Oral & Facial Surgery, we have for you two different kinds of Juvederm, the Juvederm Voluma and the Juvederm Ultra XC. When comparing these two very popular Hyaluronic acid fillers, the three main differences are based on the texture, longevity and placement.

- Optimized for middle cheek, upper cheek and for chin placement.
Juvederm Ultra XC
- Smoother and flexible texture
- Specialized for areas around the mouth and nose
