Juvederm® was launched in the UK in 2001.
It is made from a cross linked hyaluronic acid similar to the body’s own natural collagen. It is non animal in origin and does not require a patch test.
The hyaluronic acid is eventually broken down over the months leaving no trace of the filler.
The gel is injected into the skin with a very fine needle, it plumps out the skin; filling lines, and deeper folds.
It is a safe treatment available in different formulations.
Juvederm Ultra was launched in 2008 combining local anaesthetic in the products for improved comfort. This a wonderful product for smokers lines and lip enhancements if you do not want to have a dental block for pain relief. It lasts slightly longer than our hyaluronic acid fillers, although it is a little more expensive than the other hyaluronic acid fillers. We recommend Juvederm ultra to clients who have found treatments of the lip and smokers line treatments uncomfortable.
We have found this filler can last up to a year, depending on the area it is used and also on the metabolism of the individual.

Juvederm Volbella with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm® range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected, using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.
A study showed that 98% of people who had Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved; with results lasting up to 12 months.
