As we grow older, our skin begins to undergo noticeable changes. One such change is the decrease in the production of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that helps hydrate the skin.
The visible signs of aging are most evident on our faces, as lines and wrinkles begin to form around our eyes, lips, and nose. Juvederm is a non-surgical dermal gel that can correct these signs of aging.

As time passes, the diminishing levels of HA in your skin can cause facial wrinkles and folds, such as the ones resembling "parentheses" lines around your mouth. In light of this, Boston plastic surgeon, Joseph A. Russo, MD, highly recommends Juvederm as a solution. By replenishing the lost HA in your skin, it restores the volume and eliminates facial wrinkles and folds. It can also add roundness to reshape your face for a younger appearance.
Juvederm is actually a term that refers to the entire line of HA gels, which are designed to target different areas of your face.
As the only FDA-approved filler for your midface and cheeks, Voluma is specifically meant to add volume to your face with its thicker gel consistency. This creates the effect of a mini facelift as Voluma works to reduce jowls and sagging. Voluma can also be used to build lift in your cheekbones. In addition, Voluma can last up to two years.
Vollure has a medium consistency gel, which is best used for nasolabial folds and marionette lines, also known as the deep creases around your mouth and nose. In addition, Vollure injections can last for up to 18 months.
Volux targets moderate to severe loss of jawline definition by delivering a deep, long-lasting boost to your natural contours. With Volux, you can transform your jawline and achieve a stunningly defined look. Volux is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps to plump and hydrate your skin.
The original Juvederm and Volbella are both effective at filling in shallow wrinkles and lines in your face with their thinner consistency. They can also add plumpness to your lips, which can completely change your entire appearance. Juvederm will last up to six months, while Volbella can last up to a year, if not longer.
This injectable gel sets itself apart from other hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers in the market by its smooth consistency, a product of its unique manufacturing process - HYLACROSS technology.
Though other HA fillers may have a granular texture, Juvederm injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency HA gel. Its smooth-gel formula is designed to withstand the test of time. In fact, it’s the only HA filler that has been approved by the FDA to last up to a year.

If you find you’re unhappy with growing wrinkles, sagging skin, and/or loss of volume in your face, then Juvederm can provide the answer to turning back the clock and feeling comfortable in your own skin again.
During your Consultation for Juvederm Boston plastic surgeon, Dr. Russo will examine you and review your medical history in order to establish your eligibility. Generally speaking, you should be in good health and already have wrinkles and/sagging skin.
Juvederm is a versatile dermal filler that can address a wide range of concerns, including:
This treatment is considered an outpatient procedure. In fact, you’ll get your injections right at Dr. Russo’s office. Wrinkle correction with Juvederm is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime. Your injectable gel treatment should take less than an hour, although it can be longer if you have other procedures done at the same time.
Recovery is fast, usually lasting less than 24 hours. You may notice some bumps where you are injected, but that should fade in just a few hours.
Typically, side effects are considered mild or moderate. However, patients in Boston who use blood-thinning substances like aspirin or ibuprofen may experience more pronounced bruising or bleeding at the injection site. To ensure your safety, it's vital that you inform your physician beforehand if you are taking any of these medications.
While you will notice results right away from Juvederm, it will take an additional two weeks for your face to settle into its final look as the filler works on smoothing your skin. You may notice some small changes and adjustments during these two weeks, but this is normal.
If you would like a younger-looking face without undergoing a facelift or other surgical procedures, then Juvederm can provide the results you’ve been searching for. With its minimal recovery time and fast results, it can help you feel younger once more.
Experience the smooth, natural look and feel that lasts. Dr. Russo is the largest Boston Juvederm provider and the 35th in the country. Call today and schedule a consultation to find out if this treatment is right for you.
If you have wrinkles on your face, sagging skin, loss of volume in your cheeks and eyes, or deepening lines on your face, this treatment can correct these areas and restore a younger-looking appearance for you.
Yes, this treatment provides non-surgical reshaping of your face similar to a facelift without scarring or a long recovery time.
Not especially. While some patients struggle with the idea of a needle going into their face, this treatment actually comes with small amounts of lidocaine (a numbing agent) already in it. This further minimizes any discomfort you might feel. You may experience some mild soreness that can linger for about 7 to 10 days.
Because there are different types, the price varies for each one. You may also end up combining injection types as you treat multiple areas of your face or combine it with other procedures. It is an elective procedure, so it is not covered by insurance providers. However, you can get financing or inquire about payment plans if needed.
The procedure is very fast: between the consultation and treatment an appointment could take up to an hour. Considering how its recovery is short and mild, many patients find they can get the injection over lunch and return to their daily activities right away.
The results typically last around 12 months. However, they can last 18 months, so it's ideal to have a checkup around 12 months.
Both treatments are effective. However, Juvederm is known to last longer and work faster.
