The Juvederm family of fillers are all based on hyaluronic acid (HA).  Each filler has its own specialized use, approved by the FDA for that purpose.  For example, Juvederm Voluma is FDA-approved for plumping up your cheeks.  Juvederm Volbella is FDA-approved for filling in your lips.  And Juvederm Ultra Plus is great for improving your nasolabial folds.  Unlike in the past, it’s no longer “one filler fits all.”  Now, discerning physicians choose the appropriate filler for the body part it’s meant to treat.

One super-important feature of the Juvederm collection of injectable fillers is that they are all reversible with hyaluronidase.  This makes these HA fillers much safer than their non-HA counterparts.  Prior to having it injected, it’s a good idea to ask your injector if he or she has hyaluronidase on hand.  Hyaluronidase is pretty expensive to purchase, and expires quickly, so some doctors cut corners and don’t keep it in stock.  Bad idea.

Take it from someone who knows.  When you need hyaluronidase you don’t want to wait for the next shipment to come in tomorrow.  You will need it right away.

In general, if you’re thinking about facial fillers, whether it’s for wrinkles, plumping, or smoothing, you can’t go wrong with the Juvederm family of fillers.  The one area I would exercise caution, however, is injecting It into the thin skin under the eyes.  Some Juvederm products tend to absorb moisture, and this can possibly result in a higher risk of lumps when injected in such a thin area.
