What to Know about Juvederm
It’s truly amazing how quickly Juvederm can reverse signs of aging to remove years from your appearance. Although we have many options to reverse skin aging, Juvederm® is our most popular filler.
Juvederm® – the softest of the hyaluronic acid fillers – is derived from a natural substance which is found throughout the human body. Since it is so similar to your own tissue, there is no need for a sensitivity or allergy test.
The treatment can help smooth away wrinkles and lines as well as “fill out” to improve acne scars as well as enhance lips shape and size. Some patients want to just touch-up and refresh already existing treatment results. Some patients want to improve already amazing features.
Results are immediate with minimal recovery time. Juvederm is the most frequently chosen inject able filler for the lips because of its smooth, soft gel formula.
You can find out whether Juvederm is right for you and receive individualized treatment recommendations by speaking with Dr. Brown in person. Please call or text 480-596-9111 today to schedule a consultation at our Scottsdale, AZ cosmetic dermatology clinic.

“I loved my most recent Voluma injections”! Dr. Brown had been injecting since 1998! He’s so experienced on making your injections look natural. I won’t ever trust anyone else with my face.”
Sensational Skin in Scottsdale offers new Juvéderm® VOLUX dermal fillers – an innovative ‘structural’ dermal filler product specifically designed to improve the chin and jaw area.
At Sensational Skin, we’ve seen demand grow significantly for procedures that improve the contour and silhouette of the face, specifically looking to deliver a more prominent chin and better defined jawline.
Research by Allergan, developers of Juvéderm® VOLUX, indicates that 51% of people want to change their lower face shape. Many patient’s are shocked to see the immediate improvement Juvéderm Volux delivers. Many men desire a stronger more masculine jawline we see frequently in superhero actors.
Many people lack the definition they desire around the chin and jawline; but even more find this area deteriorates with age as soft tissue and bone structure changes, actually changing the shape of the face itself and accentuating the formation of a small chin, or weak jawline, allowing jowls to become rapidly more noticeable.
Juvéderm® VOLUX is new product innovation has been developed specifically to suit those difficult lower face.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC
Dr. Brown loves using Voluma, and it can really improve the face instantly. Voluma™ is one of the best fillers recently released by Allergan, the makers of Juvéderm.
Voluma has set the stage to provide instant volume to any age patient. Getting a natural-looking and natural-feeling mid face volume restoration is now possible in a single appointment. Because of Voluma, we can achieve restoration instantly.
The first of its kind, Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ is a hyaluronic acid facial filler specifically made to restore age-related volume loss in the mid-face (the cheeks, cheekbones). Voluma uses hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in your skin, to instantly restore lost facial volume in the cheeks for an instant rested and youthful improvement.
Voluma also combines with collagen and elastin to improve skin structure and elasticity, creating a smooth, natural look. The results are instant, natural looking and can last 18 to 24 months. Plus there’s no downtime – most people resume normal activities immediately.
Treatments with Dr. Brown:
- Give a subtle lift
- Help restore contour for up to 2 years
- Take years off your appearance
- Are minimally invasive (nonsurgical) with almost no downtime
- Contain modified hyaluronic acid (HA) (skin friendly)

Mid-face volume loss is usually the first area treated. Voluma is absolutely the best current dermal filler to correct quickly and have some longevity. We can use Voluma to correct quickly as well as maintaine with small repeat treatments as needed.
Dr. Brown injects Voluma more then any other filler because of its longevity and corrective ability. For both volume augmentation and volume restoration, this is an ideal and instantly gratifying injectable product.
Voluma is a robust filler and holds shape more firmly. These qualities make it perfect for:
- Cheekbone accentuation
- Cheek pad fill
- Undereye bags
No other long term instant filler can provide these same effects while retaining a comparable level of soft and natural feeling.
Juvéderm Volbella® is a newer formulation of filler that is considered to be the ideal Juvéderm option for the lips, lines around the mouth, and additional lip area volume.
Lips are one of the first areas we notice aging that can cause fuller lips to shrink and lose definition. We want our smile to look youthful and feel confident. Volume loss in the lip body can cause our lips to appear thinner and smaller as well as the beginning of lip wrinkles. As our mouth ages we notice more flattening that reduces the Cupid’s bow, which gives the lips defining feminine characteristics.
Volbella is designed to:
- Add lip volume
- Soften lip lines
- Correct downward mouth corners
- Reshape philtral columns (Cupid’s bow)
How do we even get lip lines?
Lip lines are always frustrating and are a common request for treatment. The lines can improve with filler but can also treated with co2 laser.
Dr. Brown will first do a dental block so that as he is shaping the lips, the patient will not feel anything. The dental blocks totally numb the area and start to tingle and go away in about 2 hours. The entire lip reshaping technique treats the lip lines, restores volume, and smooths lines.
How Long will Volbella Last?
The special Vycross® gel combination makes this filler one of the smoothest available. Your personal metabolism, intensity of lip movement, and your age will all have an impact on actual longevity. We have seen lip fillers last 6 months to up over 2 years.

Juvéderm Vollure XC
The new Juvéderm Vollure XC formula is highly effective at improving the appearance of laugh lines, marionette lines and horizontal chin lines. Clinical studies show that this hyaluronic acid gel filler can provide results that last up to 18 months.
Laugh lines and marionette lines are visible lines that appear around your nose and mouth when your face is at rest. These lines occur as your skin loses hyaluronic acid and collagen, both of which give your skin its structure.
Juvéderm uses their patented Vycross® technology to blend different molecule weights to achieve a particularly smooth result. Vycross cross-linking makes the fillers more malleable and easier to inject, so your treatment is easier and the outcome is even more natural-looking.
Vollure’s longevity means you can enjoy the correction for a considerably longer time than can be achieved with other fillers. Clinical study results of 18 months are based on optimal correction.
Sensational Skin also offers Volift, a new dermal filler from Juvéderm that has recently received FDA approval for use in the US.
Having been used in Europe for several years already, Volift (also known as Vollure) offers additional options for increasing facial volume and reducing wrinkles with minimal water attraction. This gel-like filler has a somewhat smoother consistency because it utilizes less hyaluronic acid to add volume under the skin. This is achieved by combining hyaluronic acid molecules of high and low molecular weight.
“I’m so happy…my nose and cheeks look lifted!”
Juvéderm Volite designed for instant dewier and more radiant skin. Can create long lasting hydration to help preserve glow to our skin.
What is Juvéderm® Volite?
Juvéderm® Volite is an anti-aging injectable product specifically designed to improve the condition of the skin and to last up to nine months only with one treatment session. Unlike typical dermal fillers, Volite is a skin conditioning Hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that delivers improvements in skin smoothness (absence of fine lines), hydration and elasticity. It can be injected intradermally and is suitable to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands of any skin types and ages.
Why is hyaluronic acid useful?
Juvéderm® Volite uses VYCROSS® technology, a unique manufacturing process which is the innovative combination of low and high molecular weight Hyaluronic acid to increase the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. Hyaluronic acid is the key to smooth and hydrated skin.
Our skin cells naturally produce it in a certain amount to maintain moisture levels and hydration. However, due to the aging process and environmental effects, our natural production of HA gradually decreases.
HA basically works as a sponge for moisture thus making your skin feel and appear plump and healthy. As we age, our ability to hold in hydration weakens.
HA is a great ingredient to diminish your lines and wrinkles as it has the ability to hold up to six liters of water. By injecting small amounts of Juvéderm Volite, you are helping your skin to hold on to natural moisture.
The treatment is suitable for:
- Face & Neck – requires 2 ml
- Neck – requires 2 ml of Volite
- Décolletage – requires 2 ml of Volite
The results of Juvéderm® Volite can vary. We recommend to repeat the treatment about every 6-9 months or 1 ml every 3 months. Many patients will do Volite when they come in for a light laser treatment.
With Volite, however, the very liquid form of hyaluronic acid injected is first and foremost for the moisture. Volite is administered through a series of tiny injections.
It works to plump and hydrate skin, smoothing out roughness and evening out depressions. The filler will help fine lines around the eyes, plus it can also treat the neck, décolletage and hands. The results are subtle, and it’s more about adding a dewy quality to skin.
Alternative Fillers to Consider
PDO Medi threads are a good option to consider as well as combine with dermal fillers.
Some deeper creases, deep nasolabial folds, hollowed temples, chin augmentation, and hands are effectively corrected by Perlane, Restylane lift, Radiesse, or Sculptra.
When face deflation, loss of volume and or the natural loss of fat or bone support that comes with aging is a problem, then Dr. Brown may use Sculptra for overall collagen stimulation. Sculptra is also used in combinations with PDO for buttocks improve shape. Sculptra revolumizes face area’s that are imbalanced or have had fat loss and/or bone loss. This filler can be used as an alternative to Juvéderm Voluma XC.
Pre-Treatment Guidelines to consider before appointment
Avoid use for 10-14 days prior to your Juvéderm injections:
- Pain relievers (Tylenol is okay)
- Coumadin (get primary physician approval first)
- Fish oil
- Ginko biloba
- Vitamin E
- Exotic or herbal supplements
- Consider using Arnica starting the day you get injections
How Much Does Treatment with Juvederm Cost in Scottsdale?
The price of your Juvederm treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area and the number of syringes needed to accomplish your desired outcome. The details of your procedure and the associated cost will be reviewed with you once Dr. Brown has created your personalized treatment plan.
