WHAT IS A FILLER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermal fillers, as the name suggests, is used to fill recessed, facial areas. It is a temporary, relatively painless procedure with immediate results.
A quick fix to soften facial wrinkles, plump lips and fill out any recessed facial areas. Fillers work by adding small amounts of volume along the crease or depressions. This volume plumps up the skin and reduces or eliminates the recessed area/crease.
The Juvéderm® ULTRA range of products is the only line of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers that offers customisable results proven to last up 8 to 18 months. It's currently the only HA filler to include an anaesthetic that makes the experience more comfortable for you. It is also very smooth and natural looking, meaning that although people may notice a difference, they won't know you've had anything done!
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA™ is a new facial ﬁller speciﬁcally designed for gently restoring natural-looking lip volume and deﬁning lip contours. This new formulation results in less swelling and delivers a natural look and feel. The effect is instant and long lasting. It is clinically proven to last up to a year in the lips with a single 1 ml treatment.
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA™ is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body which helps maintain volume and elasticity in the skin. It is broken down by the body in one or two days and is constantly replaced.
However, as we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes and the moisturizing and plumping effects of HA decrease. For this reason, HA is used in dermal ﬁller procedures to help restore lost hydration and improve the skin's volume and texture.
What makes this filler unique is its patented Vycross technology which, through more efficient cross linking, produces greater lift capacity and longer lasting results.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™, is the only FDA approved ﬁller speciﬁcally developed for the cheek area. Now we have a new treatment that can help correct age-related volume loss, in addition to the other JUVEDERM® products which help to smooth away wrinkles and folds in the lower-face.
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ is made with Allergan's proprietary VYCROSS™ technology, an advanced manufacturing process which results in a smooth gel that ﬂows easily and consistently.
This unique formulation contributes to the lift capacity to correct volume loss in the cheek area which is caused by ageing.
Additionally, JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ contains a small amount of lidocaine which helps to numb the area during treatment.
The most common side effects include temporary injection-site tenderness, swelling, ﬁrmness, lumps/bumps, bruising & redness. They were predominantly moderate, with a duration of two to four weeks.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
JUVEDERM® VOLLURE™ with Lidocaine the latest addition to the Juvéderm range of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers produced using the unique VYCROSS™ technology. This provides a versatile treatment option for patients who are looking for a discreet, natural look with minimal swelling and long-lasting result.
Over time, the cheeks, chin and jawline area can be impacted by the natural ageing process: a loss of volume or definition, and the appearance of 'static' wrinkles such as deeper nasolabial folds are among the key ageing concerns.
JUVEDERM® VOLLURE™ with Lidocaine is designed to smooth deep wrinkles for a refreshed look, as well as gently restoring natural-looking contours in the lower face.
Contouring and the treatment of deep skin depressions such as nasolabial folds, JUVEDERM® VOLLURE™ with Lidocaine provides a new treatment option estimated to deliver smooth, long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
A more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling and a smoother, defined appearance that also gives a greater lift than other Hyaluronic Acid fillers.
It also includes Lidocaine to ensure a more comfortable application.
Effects are visible immediately after injection.
Our ﬁllers are reversible and non-permanent, although with ongoing treatment the time interval between successive treatments will extend as skin repairs itself beneath the folds and creases.
Following your injection there may be some redness, bruising and swelling.
Side effects if they occur are usually mild or moderate and include swelling, tenderness at the injection site and lumps/bumps. These usually resolve in a few days.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC is now approved for chin augmentation!
It’s safe, it’s effective, and now it’s FDA-approved! Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC pioneers in the world of fillers as the first of its kind to receive approval for the chin. This marks Allergan’s fifth FDA clearance for its Collection of Fillers in the United States. Voluma™ was previously approved by the FDA in 2013 in the cheek for age-related volume deficits.
The chin is an area of the face that is often overlooked, and most patients do not realize that an improperly balanced chin is preventing the facial symmetry they seek. Liquid chin augmentation enhances the appearance of the chin and lower part of the face by bringing more chin projection and definition without surgery.
