If you want to enhance the fullness of your lips or improve the appearance of wrinkles, you have a number of options. One of those is the Juvederm collection of fillers which includes Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella. However, before you schedule a consultation with Dr. Alex at A E Skin, serving Encino, CA, and the general vicinity, it helps to better understand how it works as well as its safety and effectiveness. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions to help you gain a better understanding of Juvederm.

What is Juvederm made of?

The Juvederm collection of fillers (Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella) consists of a sugar called hyaluronic acid, which your body produces naturally. It hydrates the eyes and joints while providing cushioning for said joints as well as other parts of your body. This same concept is what helps it to plump your lips and skin, which enhances the look of your lips while reducing the appearance of wrinkling. You should know that the use of hyaluronic acid in this way has U.S. Food and Drug (FDA) clearance.

Are there any side effects from Juvederm?

While you could experience side effects after getting a Juvederm (Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella) treatment at our office, they're generally mild and don't last long. For instance, you may experience bruising, redness, irritation, swelling, or itching around the injection site. It's believed that these side effects are the injection itself rather than the hyaluronic acid.
