Juvederm is a recent development in dermal fillers
and being a natural product it is extremely compatible with all skin types. Juvederm can be used to improve the appearance of the face by smoothing out lines and adding volume and tone to ageing skin.
There are two types of Juvederm currently on the market and they are used to treat slightly different skin problems. The 2 types are Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Voluma.
Juvederm Ultra is a long lasting filler with cosmetic benefits for up to one year. Juvederm is readily taken up by the skin and is excellent at filling out frown lines and ageing lines to leave a much smoother and firmer appearance.
Juvederm Ultra can be used on all areas of the face including the lips, mouth, forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Juvederm Ultra smile is a recent addition to the Juvederm family and is used to improve the appearance of your lips.
Juvederm voluma’s main aim is to restore volume to the face that has been lost as a result of ageing. As we get older our face can begin to sag and we can lose the distinctive contours that we had in our youth. Juvederm voluma can add volume to the cheeks, chin and jaw line and give your face a natural looking lift. The results are long lasting with most people reporting an improvement in their appearance for up to 18 months following their treatment.

The following are factors that affect the price you will pay for Juvederm:
The extent of the treatment required: If your require treatment to replace loss of volume in your face then more of the filler material will have to be used and consequently the price will be higher. The same is true of frown lines, with deeper lines requiring more Juvederm filler to achieve the desired results.
How many areas need treating: If you need multiple areas treating then the cost will naturally be higher. Most clinics will offer discounts if you require multiple areas treating.
The qualifications of the practitioner: You are likely to pay more if your practitioner is medically trained. Medically trained practitioners have a better knowledge of facial anatomy and are therefore better equipped to deal with any complications should they arise.
The reputation of the clinician: You will generally pay more for a clinician who is considered an expert in administering Juvederm injections.
Location: You are likely to pay more for your Juvederm injections in more affluent areas as the rental cost of the premises is likely to be higher.
