Juvederm Sarasota | Juvederm Fillers Sarasota

Millions of fillers injections take place around the world. With more of a focus on anti-aging and enhanced facial features, the number of filler injections performed goes up each year. Hyaluronic acids compromise the majority of these injections due to their wide range of applications and good safety record. In the United States, the two most popular brands and ones with the most FDA approvals are Restylane and Juvederm. Sarasota Surgical Arts provides the best Juvederm Sarasota offers.

Everything To Know About Juvederm

Juvederm is a brand of hyaluronic acid fillers made by Allergan which also makes Botox. As one of the companies that have produced cosmetic injection products for decades, they offer a wide range of quality products and treatments. Since 2006, Juvederm has been widely available and used in the US for wrinkle correction.

Like Restylane, Juvederm’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Though, Juvederm fillers are often considered thicker than other HA fillers. Also, Juvederm also makes the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler on the market, Juvederm Voluma. It can last up to two years in some areas and with ideal treatment.


Juvederm is used for facial wrinkle correction and facial augmentation. The FDA has approved their fillers for various applications. For example, some of the approved and off-label uses of Juvederm fillers include:

Qualified injectors can use Juvederm nearly anywhere other fillers are used. Unlike Restylane, Juvederm is not commonly used in the hands. It also absorbs more water than Restylane. Thus, this makes it ideal for areas where plumpness is desirable such as the lips. Therefore, this can add volume beyond the fillers themselves.

Available Juvederm Fillers

Under the Juvederm brand, there are several fillers offered for various applications. While all Juvederm fillers are hyaluronic acid based, they have some small differences. Thus, this may make individual fillers suitable for certain treatments or areas.

Juvederm Ultra XC

As one of the original Juvederm fillers, Juvederm Ultra is one of the thinner fillers they offer. Though, it is one of the most versatile products in the Juvederm family of fillers. It is commonly used to treat areas such as:

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Juvederm Ultra Plus is an advanced version of Juvederm Ultra that includes crosslinking technology which makes the filler slightly thicker and becomes more stable upon injection. Thus, this means it can adequately treat deeper lines and folds. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

  • Lips
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines

Juvederm Volbella XC

Juvederm Volbella is one of the newest fillers from Allergan. Compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers, it has a more spongy texture which is ideal for certain areas. This also makes it one of the most unique dermal fillers. Volbella is often used in the following areas:

  • Lips
  • Tear troughs

Juvederm Vollure XC

Juvederm Vollure specifically targets the nasolabial folds and similar deep folds or wrinkles. It is a thicker filler and can last eighteen months under ideal conditions. It is extremely effective when it comes to addressing aging and volume loss concerns. The most popular treatments for this filler are:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Parenthesis lines
  • Lip lines

Juvederm Voluma XC

One of the most well known Juvederm products, Juvederm Voluma is a strong, stable, and durable filler. It is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler currently available and can last up to two years. Common treatment areas include:

Juvederm vs. Restylane: Which Is Better?

When first exploring fillers, it can be confusing and unclear which hyaluronic acid filler is right for you. Additionally, both Restylane and Juvederm contain the same base ingredient and treat many of the same areas. Thus, it becomes unnecessarily difficult at times to choose the right option. The table below details some of the main differences between the two filler brands.



  • Fillers tend to be thicker
  • A few core filler options
  • Tends to last longer than twelve months on average
  • Absorbs more water
  • Smooth texture
  • Costs more per syringe
  • Less malleable
  • May work better for areas where plumpness is a priority
  • Average or thin fillers
  • Several filler options
  • Lasts three to twelve months on average
  • Absorbs less water
  • Granular texture
  • Costs less per syringe
  • More malleable
  • May preserve natural expressions better

While Juvederm and Restylane have differences, they are extremely comparable products. People often see consistent results with them, experience similar side effects, and are injected in roughly the same ways. Furthermore, the right filler may come down purely to cost or preference. Your provider can discuss this with you during your consultation and help you choose the ideal filler option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Fillers Prevent Wrinkles?

Botox and similar injections are known to have some preventative properties. However, can fillers also prevent wrinkles? It largely depends on the type of filler. Though, overall, hyaluronic acid fillers are likely less preventative than other forms of cosmetic injections. For example, Sculptra and Radiesse promote a larger scale, longer lasting collagen production cycle. Over time, this can help promote more permanent volume and facial tissue enhancement.

Hyaluronic acid fillers do also cause a collagen response. However, it is important to note that any injection will induce a collagen response. Dermal fillers may help improve the look and quality of the skin. However, overall, it does not prevent wrinkles like other types of injections.

How Long Do Juvederm Fillers Last?

On average, Juvederm fillers last one year. This will vary from patient to patient. Some Juvederm fillers such as Voluma and Vollure can last well over a year. Due to their thicker and more stable structure, Juvederm fillers do tend to last longer than any other hyaluronic acid filler.

Factors that can impact how long your fillers last include:

  • Treatment area
  • Activity level
  • Medical conditions
  • Metabolism
  • Environmental factors
  • Movement of or near the treatment area
  • Type of filler

What Are The Risks & Side Effects Of Juvederm?

Like all injections, Juvederm does come with some risks and possible side effects. While most people are at low risk of complications and side effects are typically mild, it is still important to understand them. Additionally, some people may have higher risks or experience prolonged or worsened side effects. If you are at a higher likelihood of this, your provider will likely be able to determine this during a consultation. 


Major complications or risks are rare. Most adverse effects are treatable, temporary, and preventable. Some of the risks include:

  • Infection
  • Asymmetry
  • Acne or cold sore flare-ups
  • Nerve damage
  • Scarring
  • Occlusion of a blood vessel
  • Skin necrosis

Juvederm is reversible with an injection of hyaluronidase. This means that adverse events with long lasting consequences are extremely rare. The best way to avoid this is to ensure you are going to a qualified provider.

Side Effects

Common side effects will follow those of other filler injections. They tend to resolve on their own within two weeks. Side effects and complications can include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Numbness

Does Hyaluronic Acid Filler Build Collagen?

Injections of hyaluronic acid filler do trigger a small collagen response. However, this is generally to heal the injection site and help the filler settle. It may help mildly improve the skin, but it will not lead to a noticeable build-up of collagen. Sculptra and Radiesse are known for building collagen and are recommended for those with extensive facial fat loss.

What Can I Expect From The Aftercare?

Juvederm filler injections do not require any recovery. Though, you may still need to make a few alterations to your daily life for a few days to promote the best results. Thus, some aftercare instructions your provider may give you include:

  • Do not drink alcohol or smoke
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Do not exercise for one to two days
  • Skip the skincare day of the injections and be gentle in the coming week
  • Ice if necessary or instructed
  • Only take Tylenol for discomfort
  • Do not unnecessarily touch the area
  • Avoid sleeping directly on treat sites

How Much Is A Syringe Of Juvederm?

Traditionally, dermal fillers are priced by the syringe. Therefore, the entire cost of your Juvederm filler treatment will depend on how many syringes you use. You find our pricing on our price list and will receive a personalized price quote upon consultation.
