The Juvéderm family consists of Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Ultra XC, and Juvéderm Voluma XC, which are all used in the battle against aging. Depending on a patient’s needs, our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, can inject this filler wherever volume and hydration are needed, which include thin lips, deflated cheeks, and the nasolabial folds (lines between the mouth and nose) to produce smoother, younger-looking skin. Consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA), this substance is found naturally in the human body and aids in providing structure to the face, giving it youthful shape and volume. We implement FDA-approved Juvéderm at Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery to fight aging by spreading beyond the injection site to produce younger-looking skin for up to 1 year.
The best candidates for Juvéderm:
- Have moderate to deep lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Have thin lips and desire plumper lips
- Have age-related volume loss in cheeks
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results

What to Expect@headingTag>
Beforehand, the doctor will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the correct dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Since Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (Lidocaine) included, additional numbing usually isn’t needed. The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. Patients will feel a small prick and a tingling sensation from the injection. The treatment typically lasts 30 – 45 minutes.
After the injectable, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, patients can return to their normal activities immediately. The face will be dramatically improved immediately after the treatment, and most patients can expect reliable results for up to 1 year.
