Juvéderm is a dermal filler used at Portica that is created from Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, making it extremely well tolerated. Injections of Juvéderm can be done in multiple areas throughout the face to restore volume and to treat facial wrinkles.

Juvéderm is formulated into different thicknesses and consistencies, each of them specifically customized for use in different areas of the face.

Juvéderm ULTRA XC is a gel filler that helps to smooth out wrinkles in the nose and mouth area instantly for up to a year.  This filler is also one of our go-to’s for natural-looking lip augmentation. If you have noticed volume loss in your lips, or are just seeking fuller, plumper lips, we recommend Juvederm Ultra XC. This dermal filler has a smooth consistency and is well tolerated.

Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is designed to provide volume deeper below the skin’s surface. It is an ideal choice to treat areas such as the cheeks. As people age, there can be loss of volume in the cheek area, both from loss of facial fat and resorption of bone. This loss in volume can be beautifully replaced with injections of Juvederm Voluma. Juvederm Voluma injections provide long-lasting, natural looking volume that can last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.

Juvéderm VOLLURE is designed to treat moderate to deep wrinkles and folds in the face. An example of this is the nasolabial folds or “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth. Optimal treatment of Juvederm Vollure can last up to 18 months in this area. This filler comes with some lidocaine mixed into it, to help with any discomfort during injections.

Juvéderm VOLBELLA XC is a very smooth product that is designed to be used in the lips. It is a crystal-clear gel that is injected with a super fine needle to provide temporary, smooth plumping to the lips. It can also be used in the fine vertical lip lines that come with age. Some people refer to these as “smoker lines”, but in truth they occur in many people from normal daily motion and collagen loss. The results of Juvederm Volbella last up to a year. Juvederm Volbella comes mixed with the numbing agent lidocaine, which is helpful as the lips can be a very sensitive area of the face.
