Hyaluronic Acid: The Magic Behind Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid. Sounds scary? Not really. Hyaluronic acid is just the fancy medical term for a sugar compound that occurs naturally in our bodies, and which is responsible for maintaining facial fullness and elasticity in our skin by binding to water like a sponge, absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Over time though, as we age, our bodies produce less of this important compound. Juvederm can help restore youthful levels of hyaluronic acid.

Juvederm Volux is the newest product in the Juvederm dermal filler family. It is the first FDA approved filler for redefining structure and lost definition in the jawline. Like other products in the Juvederm family, Volux is made from hyaluronic acid. The difference is that Volux is thicker and has more cohesivity and lift power. Volux can be massaged and shaped after the injection, then hold that shape over time, giving you a well-defined, natural looking jawline, which can have a huge effect on your overall appearance. You can also use Volux to treat a recessed chin or ill-defined jawline.

How Does It Work?

Juvederm Volux is created using Juvederm’s Vycross cross-linking technology, which cross-links the strands of hyaluronic acid to create a firmer, longer lasting gel that provides support when injected underneath the skin. This adds volume, structure and hydration to the area of the injection and helps improve the jawline structure.

What Happens During Treatment?

The first thing we will have you do is come in for an initial consultation so we can examine your jawline and discuss the procedure along with your expectations and desired results.

On the day of your treatment, we will cleanse the skin into the targeted area and may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize any possible discomfort. After marking the injection sites, the treatment will begin. Ultra-fine needles will be inserted into your chin, jowl and jawline and the dermal filler will be injected. The process is simple, safe and generally takes less than an hour, and you should be able to see results immediately. The treatments last between one and two years on average.

Is There Any Downtime or Side Effects?

The good news is there is no downtime after your procedure. You may experience some slight swelling and bruising at the site for up to two weeks after your treatment. You should avoid or limit exercise and exposure to sun and heat exposure for the first day or two following your injection.

Juvederm is smoother than Restylane, but this doesn’t mean better. While the smoother consistency of Juvederm means that it is less likely to leave small bumps after treatment (these will fade and smooth out in time) this also means that Juvederm is more likely to ‘bleed’ in to areas around the treatment area, with undesirable results. Juvederm is, for instance, ideal for filling lines and wrinkles, but if used in the hollows under the eyes can easily travel to the top of the cheeks, creating an undesirable puffiness. For this application, Restylane would be the better choice.


Restylane and Restylane Lyft are slightly coarser than Juvederm, but while this means that a Restylane treatment may leave small bumps that will take a few days to smooth out, the thicker consistency means that Restylane is less likely to ‘travel’ outside the treatment area. This makes Restylane the right choice to fill in lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips as well as the nasolabial folds. Restylane will smooth these areas without creating puffiness in the surrounding tissues.
