About: Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based monophasic gel used as a dermal filler to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns including the restoration of age-related volume loss in the midface and under eyes, the enhancement of facial features such as the lips, cheeks, and jawline, and the correction of asymmetry in various regions of the face. The Juvederm family includes seven variations of the product, each of which differs in density and allows for versatility in terms of treatment areas based on each patient’s individual needs.

Safety: After several successful clinical trials, Juvederm was FDA-approved in 2006 as a safe and effective means to treat various cosmetic concerns, facial wrinkles, and folds. Juvederm must be administered by a highly trained and skilled board-certified cosmetic physician to ensure patient safety and to avoid any potential adverse side effects or complications.

Convenience: Juvederm is known as a “lunch break procedure” due to its quick and effective application. A single session takes no longer than 15 – 30 minutes and involves minimal risks and side effects or post-treatment restrictions, making it incredibly convenient for those on a tight schedule in a busy city like NYC.

Cost: On average, the cost of one syringe of Juvederm ranges $800 – $1500.

Efficacy: Several successful clinical studies alongside overall patient satisfaction have confirmed the safety and efficacy of Juvederm injections to enhance facial features, restore facial volume, and rejuvenate the face for an overall more youthful and supple appearance.



Juvederm Vollure stands out from many hyaluronic acid fillers as its longevity exceeds that of the majority of HA gels. Due to its Vycross technology combining low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, its cross-linking is particularly efficient, yielding a higher viscosity and durability. As such, it is substantially more resistant to the gradual disintegration of the product, allowing patients to maintain their results for up to 2 years.


Allergan is an international pharmaceutical company known for developing and distributing high-quality cosmetic medications and injectables, including Botox, Kybella, and CoolSculpting. Allergan also manufactures all Juvederm products, including Volbella, using innovative modern technology for top-tier cosmetic medications considered the gold standard in the field of cosmetic medicine.


Juvederm CX and Juvederm Plus XC differ in terms of formulation as Juvederm Ultra Plus is thicker in consistency due to its Hylacross technology. As such Juvederm Ultra Plus has a higher concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acids, making it denser and longer lasting than Juvederm. Because it is more robust, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is typically injected into deeper layers of the skin to correct deep wrinkles and folds. Both products can be used in the same treatment areas at Dr. Schwarzburg’s discretion at his NYC cosmetic medical practice, depending on your aesthetic goals and facial anatomy. The “XC” after the name of the product indicates that it contains lidocaine, an anesthetic that makes the injection process more tolerable.


The primary difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Volbella is their density and cross-linking technology. Juvederm Ultra uses Hylacross technology, which creates a thicker consistency due to its 9% crosslinked hyaluronic acids. Juvederm Volbella is a softer filler constructed with Vycross technology, combining primarily low molecular weight hyaluronic acid with a small amount of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. Subsequently, Volbella produces a more subtle and natural-looking result.

If for example, you’ve been looking for a lip filler, Juvederm Ultra will give you plumper, fuller, and slightly more swollen lips for a more dramatic result. If you want something more subtle and are more interested in maintaining a natural-looking lip while adding a gentle enhancement, then Volbella would be a more appropriate option for you.


Juvederm Voluma utilizes Vycross, a proprietary cross-linking technology that combines both high molecular and low molecular-weight hyaluronic acids. Correspondingly, Voluma is a softer filler, but adds more volume and longer-lasting results than most other Juvederm products. Juvederm Voluma is an excellent choice for patients looking to enhance their lips and cheeks, and is also commonly used to treat age-related volume and facial fat loss, such as under eye and mid-face hollowness.

As we become older, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and facial fat pads begin to degrade, resulting in a gaunt, hollow, and overall older facial appearance. Juvederm Voluma can restore this lost volume, giving you back that supple and youthful fullness.


Both Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Ultra were originally designed to restore facial volume and fill in deep lines and folds and are known for their volumizing effects, particularly when used in areas such as the lips. Juvederm Voluma uses Vycross technology and is most commonly used to enhance the cheeks, lips, chin, and jawline. Juvederm Ultra uses Hylacross technology and is typically used along the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, as well as a means to diminish the appearance of static wrinkles when the face is at rest. Both products can be used interchangeably though it is extremely important that your provider has the knowledge and expertise to understand the complexities of each filler and your facial anatomy in order to appropriately select the filler that is right for you. Dr. Schwarzburg is a board-certified cosmetic physician who has spent over a decade specializing in minimally invasive treatments. At his NYC medical spa, Dr. Schwarzburg offers a wide range of fillers, each of which he selects carefully based on his patients’ individual needs.

Over the past 10 years, Juvederm injections have become incredibly popular due to their advanced formulation of hyaluronic acid that can be used on a variety of skin types with natural-looking and long-lasting results. As we age, our skin loses collagen and our faces lose facial fat and fullness that can not naturally be replaced. With the help of Juvederm injections, this volume loss can be replaced to augment facial features and recreate a younger and a more vibrant version of yourself.

When it was FDA approved in 2006, Juvederm quickly skyrocketed to become one of the most popular dermal fillers in the United States, with 7 different types of products to plump the lips, restore volume, and smooth lines, wrinkles, and folds. In 2016, more than 2.4 Million hyaluronic acid-based filler products (including Juvederm) were performed.

Full, luscious lips, a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance using Juvederm for a liquid facelift, and the general ability to enhance one’s appearance using Juvederm, while avoiding invasive plastic surgery, has made these injections hot and trendy in celebrities, models, actors, and the general population alike.


Juvederm is a technologically advanced injectable gel formulation made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar complex found in the skin. With age, our body’s natural hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin production decreases, and the fat compartments that give our faces that youthful plump is lost, making us appear hollow and gaunt.

These common signs of aging can be addressed and reversed through the injection of a sophisticated hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel filler, such as Juvederm, to replenish and restore the appearance of your young and beautiful self, but without fine lines, wrinkles, or hollowness, regardless of skin type or complexion.

Juvederm injectables use a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is what allows the liquid, cross-linked hyaluronic acid to transform into a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, for a natural look and feel, as well as long-lasting results. The cross-linked product is injected into the mid to deep dermis (below the epidermis, or outer layer of skin) to restore the body’s own hyaluronic acid, and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds, and eye hollows.


Juvederm can treat several areas of the face to replace lost facial fat volume, enhance existing features, or fill in fine lines, deep wrinkles, and creases. Facial regions that can be injected with Juvederm fillers include plump lips for increased volume and definition, perioral lines (also called smokers lines or vertical lip lines), corners of the mouth, marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of your mouth down to the chin), nasolabial area, tear troughs (under eyes), chin, temples, hands, cheeks, jawline, neck, and to fill in acne and surgical scars.

  • Juvederm Lip Fillers
    With age comes a reduction in anatomical fat pads in the face, resulting in loss of volume, thinning, and drying out of the lips. Juvederm can be used to enhance not only the size of the lips, but to create symmetry, reshape, and contour uneven lips with lip injections. Perioral lines, also known as smoker’s lines or vertical lip lines, can be corrected using Juvederm Volbella for a younger and more hydrated-looking mouth. Whether you are looking for a Kylie Jenner style lip or a subtle enhancement, Juvederm will have a product suitable for you.
  • Juvederm Nose Filler
    Juvederm Voluma is an excellent filler for non-surgical rhinoplasty because of its ideal rheological properties. Juvederm injections in the bridge are a highly advanced and sophisticated procedure that should only be done by board-certified physicians because of the potential dangers related to incorrect placement. When properly placed this dermal filler augments the shape of the nose smoothing out imperfections such as humps and bumps and straightening the nose without surgery.
  • Cheek Enhancement with Juvederm Voluma
    As we age, we lose facial fat, which directly results in loss of volume in our cheeks and other areas of the face. This volume loss essentially deflates the cheeks resulting in flatter appearing features and an overall older look. Because volume loss in the mid-face is a chief concern, Juvederm Voluma was FDA approved in 2013 to restore volume in the cheek and malar area, allowing for an overall more youthful appearance and lifted jowls with cheek filler injections.
  • Jaw contouring with Ultra Plus
    There are various dermal fillers that can be used around the jawline to add more prominence to a weak mandible. Juvederm Ultra Plus is often used in this area for jawline contouring, and typically requires 2 – 3 syringes for optimal results.
  • Chin enhancement with Juvederm Voluma
    Juvederm Voluma was FDA approved for the chin area in 2020, to provide symmetry and contouring to a weak chin that may be the result of genetics or the consequences of aging. Voluma in the chin evens out asymmetry in the face and gives your chin more prominence for a more projected profile and a more contoured jawline.
  • Nose Contouring With Juvederm
    Juvederm is commonly used as a dermal filler to contour the nose in various ways. Liquid rhinoplasty is often meant to even out a crooked nose or to straighten out bumps and dents on the nasal bridge.
  • Tear trough: treating under eye fillers with Juvederm Volbella
    As we age and lose collagen and adipose tissue, we become troubled by dark circles and facial hollows making us appear older. Juvederm Volbella is designed to treat the delicate area under the eyes and is an excellent option to help replace lost facial volume and refresh your overall appearance.
  • Treating Nasolabial folds with Juvederm
    One of the first areas to show volume loss in the face is the nasolabial folds, also called smile lines or parenthesis. They are the deep creases that extend from the corners of your nose to the oral commissures (corners of your mouth) making you appear older. Juvederm Ultra Plus is designed specifically for these deep lines and the marionette lines.
  • Age-related volume loss and the liquid facelift
    As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid, collagen, elastin, and important facial fat, all of which are responsible for the youthful appearance of our skin. Once we lose fat pockets in our faces, they begin to lose volume, especially under the eye area and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to replace this lost facial fat and fill in wrinkles, lines, and deep folds that also form with age. This is called a liquid facelift, as it uses a combination approach of layering various dermal fillers in different areas of the face, giving you a rejuvenating lift without any surgical intervention.
  • Can Juvederm Voluma be used for acne scars?
    Acne scars can also be treated with Juvederm Voluma. Acne scarring is characterized by small indents, which can be filled in using Juvederm Voluma to replace this lost tissue volume. Depending on the severity of the scarring, Dr. Schwarzburg often starts with a Secret RF fractional microneedling treatment, followed by Fraxel Dual laser treatment to smooth out and refine the skin through fractional thermal ablation. If the patient is still left with some deeper scars, Juvederm Voluma can be used to fill them in.

Juvederm and Restylane are both hyaluronic acid based gel fillers that are FDA-approved to treat various cosmetic concerns in regions of the face and body. Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan and Restylane is manufactured and distributed by another pharmaceutical company, Galderma. Both products come with a line of dermal fillers that are made using different formulations and cross-linking technologies. In some cases, Dr. Schwarzburg may select a Restylane filler over a Juvederm filler or vice versa, though many of their products can be used interchangeably or even in combination with one another. 

When it comes to the primary differences between the original Juvederm and Restylane products, Juvederm has a smoother texture, while Restylane is a granular and more cohesive gel. There is no single HA gel that is better than the other as both have advantages and disadvantages. For example, because Restylane is denser it can be used to gradually build volume in your cheeks or to fill in under eye hollows without resulting in an overdone or puffy look – Juvederm on the other hand is rarely used under the eyes as it has more hydrophilic consistency with the tendency to swell up more, retain more water, and create more volume. However, clinical trials have found that Restylane more frequently results in lumping due to its thickness, which must be smoothed out during the injection process. Juvederm is said to last longer than Restylane, though this does not apply to all patients as each patient’s response to any dermal filler is unique.


If you are trying to decide which filler is the right one for you, it is best to leave it up to a board-certified plastic surgeon with a deep understanding of the intricacies of each dermal filler and which one is most suitable for your desired outcome. While Juvederm is a better option than Restylane in some cases, it may not be appropriate in others.

For example, if you are in your early or mid-twenties and are noticing the development of under eye circles and hollowness, Restylane will be a better choice, as its consistency allows for a subtle yet effective enhancement for delicate areas such as the under eyes. In fact, Restylane is often used as a preventative measure to gradually fill in areas affected by age related volume loss, to avoid the problem from becoming worse over time.

With age, our bodies produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid, and lose healthy adipose tissue in the medial aspect of the face. This includes the under eyes and cheeks and often results in a hollow and gaunt appearance. Unfortunately, depending on your genetics, hormones, lifestyle, and potential underlying medical conditions, this volume loss can become evident even in patients in their early 20s. According to Dr. Schwarzburg who practices cosmetic dermatology in NYC, a subtle enhancement to maintain that youthful plumpness in the face can be achieved via intradermal injection and strategic placement of either Juvederm or Restylane hyaluronic acid gels.


Juvederm and Botox are both manufactured by the same pharmaceutical company, Allergan, though they serve completely different purposes in terms of their aesthetic functionality. 

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid gel facial filler that is injected intradermally to replenish facial fat loss and enhancement of facial features by adding volume to the areas of concern. For example, if you are struggling with sunken cheeks, under eyes, and lacking overall structure and plumpness in the midface, a dermal filler can be used to fill in these areas. If you have thin lips and want to augment their size to create a more attractive lip shape, Juvederm lip injections will create a fuller, luscious lip.

Botox is a neurotoxin used to reduce, eliminate, and prevent fine lines and wrinkles via intramuscular injection and temporary muscular paralysis. Upon injection, Botox inhibits the release of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. As a result, the injected facial muscles are essentially paralyzed for 3 – 4 months, restricting the facial animations that cause the formation of wrinkles. Botox is primarily injected in the glabellar region to treat frown lines, the orbicularis oculi muscle to treat crow’s feet, and the frontalis muscles to mitigate horizontal lines. 

In the case that wrinkles have developed into static wrinkles, making them visible and deep even when the face is at rest, Juvederm may be used in addition to Botox to fill in the remaining expressive lines. Other neurotoxins similar to Botox include Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.


Juvederm is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid gel molecules, a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan that is a vital component of the extracellular matrix of the dermis. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide naturally found in the body, 50% of which is located in the skin, keeping it hydrated and supporting tissue volume and structural support. Naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is not cross-linked and is constantly broken down and reproduced by the body. As we become older, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other essential building blocks of the dermis. As a result, we lose facial volume, our skin becomes dehydrated, and signs of aging begin to become evident.

Juvederm uses a high concentration of highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid molecules creating intermolecular bonds providing longevity and durability of the injected product. Juvederm is a monophasic gel, consisting of a large distribution of gel particle sizes. In combination, these gels are connected and sized in a way that they can effectively be injected into the skin.

Different Juvederm products are formulated with varying cross-linking technologies allowing for versatility in terms of density, thickness, and consistency amongst each filler. When injected into the mid to deep dermis, below the epidermis, Juvederm offers immediate volume enhancement lasting anywhere from 9 – 18 months. Juvederm can be used in various regions of the face, neck, and body for subtle or dramatic aesthetic enhancements such as lip fillers, cheek fillers, or for jawline contouring amongst other applications.


Hyaluronic acid is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan (GAG) made up of polymeric disaccharides – essentially a complex sugar polymer. It is naturally found in the body, primarily in the dermal layers, and serves as a natural lubricant in the eyes and synovial fluids alongside other fluids in the body. In the body, it serves the principal purpose of hydration in the skin and aids in tissue injury and wound repair. While naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is not cross-linked, hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers like Juvederm consist of highly cross-linked HA molecules, creating an injectable gel that can be used for cosmetic purposes in various regions of the face and body.


Let’s get real – in today’s society getting cosmetic injections such as Botox and Juvederm has become both the norm and necessity, as celebrities, social media influencers, and public figures have become much more open about secrets on how to maintain their youthful appearance. While not everyone is looking for lips like Kylie Jenner, Juvederm has grown to become one of the best known and most popular dermal fillers on the market and can produce incredible rejuvenating and magnifying results in various regions of the face. Since its FDA approval in 2006, Allergan pharmaceuticals has developed seven different fillers in the Juvederm line, all of which have unique formulations varying in density, hardness, and consistency, making Juvederm incredibly versatile for a wide range of cosmetic concerns.

Juvederm isn’t only popular amongst the younger generation influenced by social media. In fact, the average age range of Juvederm patients goes from 22 – 58 years of age. Not only does it serve great benefits to patients looking to emphasize certain facial features or restore lost volume in the tear troughs or medial aspect of the face, but to patients looking to prevent the formation of common signs of aging. When Juvederm is skillfully and artfully injected by a board certified plastic surgeon like New York based Dr. Schwarzburg, it can be used as a preventative measure to fill in beginning signs of facial fat loss to maintain that youthful plump far beyond your early 20s. 


There are many regions of the face that can benefit from Juvederm injections for facial shape and volume restoration, feature enhancement, correction of facial asymmetry, and treatment and prevention of age-related imperfections. Depending on your aesthetic concern, a suitable Juvederm filler will be selected by Dr. Schwarzburg to correct it. The following are the most common areas in which Juvederm is injected.

  • Lip enhancement is one of the most common minimally invasive cosmetic treatments in today’s society. This applies not only to young adults who idolize the voluptuous lips seen on celebrities, models, and social media influencers, but to individuals who have reached an age in which collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production has decreased, resulting in thinner, wrinklier, and flat looking lips. In this case, Juvederm can be used to restore the hydration and volume of the lips, as well as to fill in and eliminate perioral lines, also known as smoker’s lines, that form around the mouth. Juvederm for lips can be used to create fuller lips, rejuvenate aging lips, even out asymmetrical lips, and maintain a natural fullness in patients looking to prevent age-related deterioration of the lips.
  • Liquid rhinoplasties have grown in popularity due to their minimally invasive nature and non-permanent results, making them ideal for someone exploring the possibility of surgical rhinoplasty, allowing them to “test the waters” before committing to a permanent alteration. Juvederm can be used to straighten a bumpy or indented bridge, lift the tip of the nose to create more of a button-type look, or generally contour its overall shape.
  • Cheek enhancement with Juvederm Voluma is one of the highest requested Juvederm injections at Dr. Schwarzburg’s NYC medical spa. Cheek filler can be applied for a number of cosmetic purposes and is mostly known for its ability to contour and lift the appearance of the zygomatic bone (cheek bone). However, the anatomy of the cheek extends along the medial aspect of the face, including the anteromedial cheek, malar area, and midface groove, all of which are susceptible to age related facial fat and volume loss, resulting in a deflated and older looking midface. Juvederm Voluma was FDA approved in 2013 to restore this lost volume in the cheeks, resulting in a supple, and rejuvenated outcome.
  • Jawline contouring with Juvederm Ultra Plus is a commonly performed procedure to add definition to the jawlines of both men and women. The mandible, also known as the jawbone, is the primary component that creates structure along the jawline. In patients that have a weak, or less prominent mandible, 1 – 3 syringes of Juvederm filler can achieve a chiseled and contoured lower face from both a frontal and profile perspectives. 
  • Enhancing the chin with Juvederm Voluma goes hand in hand with jawline contouring and is often applied simultaneously. In 2020, Juvederm Voluma was FDA approved to correct and enhance a recessed chin that leaves many individuals feeling insecure about their profile. Juvederm Voluma is often injected into the mental region to add prominence, projection, and symmetry to the chin for an overall more attractive profile.
  • Juvederm Volbella is often used as an under eye filler in patients struggling with dark circles and hollowness in the periorbital region of the face. Under-eye circles can be caused by a variety of factors including genetics, lifestyle, underlying medical conditions, and the inevitable effects of aging, in which our bodies produce less collagen and healthy facial fat begins to degrade making us appear older. Due to its Vycross technology, Volbella is an excellent option to treat the delicate area beneath the eyes, restoring volume and creating a fresher, more “awake” appearance. Volbella is not very hygroscopic and has decreased water affinity allowing for successful rejuvenation of the delicate and thin periorbital area.
  • Nasolabial folds, also known as the parentheses around your mouth that run from the corners of your nose to the oral commissures (corners of the mouth), and sometimes beyond, down the chin (marionette lines) are the unfortunate result of smiling and age-related collagen and volume loss. Juvederm Ultra Plus is an excellent option and FDA approved to fill in these smile lines, allowing you to smile naturally without leaving behind deep folds that make you look older.
  • One of the most frustrating aspects of becoming older is our body’s inability to produce sufficient amounts of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and healthy facial adipose tissue that are responsible for the structural integrity of our skin and underlying structures. As a result, our dermal layers become weaker and thinner, and the mid, suborbital, and zygomatic regions of our faces become hollow and haggard looking. Age-related volume loss in facial fat pads is inevitable, though it can be corrected with the strategic placement of Juvederm fillers for a liquid facelift. At his medspa located in New York, Dr. Schwarzburg often combines a variety of Juvederm products to revise various regions of the face, to recreate the youthful fullness that has been lost over the years. 
  • Juvederm can also be used for preventative purposes in younger patients looking to maintain their youthful appearance by receiving routine “touch ups”, in which Dr. Schwarzburg injects minimal amounts of dermal filler in areas that are most commonly affected with age. This applies primarily to the under eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips.

Juvederm Vollure is composed of a combination of low and high HA molecular weight using Vycross technology making it particularly resilient to disintegration, meaning that it is durable and lasts longer than most Juvederm products. Because areas like the nasolabial folds and lips are very animated as we speak, laugh, and smile on a daily basis, dermal fillers have the tendency to metabolize quicker in these regions. As such, Vollure works particularly well in treating deep folds in the midface as well as wrinkles for longer-lasting results.


Atrophic acne scarring is the unfortunate downside that is left behind once severe acne has been treated. These scars appear as small indents or “craters”, which may be filled in using Juvederm Voluma injections to restore lost tissue in the area of concern. However, acne scars are very dense due to the collagen produced as the acne heals, meaning that dermal fillers alone may not be enough to fully eliminate their appearance. In addition, even if the scars are successfully disguised with Voluma, the results will not be permanent, which is why Dr. Schwarzburg often combines Secret RF fractional microneedling and Fraxel laser resurfacing to address deeper dermal layers and break down the scarring, rather than simply filling in the dimples. This will result in an overall smoother texture and longer lasting results. The best approach to treat severe atrophic acne scarring is to utilize Secret RF and Fraxel to cover deeper bases, followed by dermal filler if needed.


Kim Kardashian has very full lips. If you want this type of enhancement, the best Juvederm filler to use is either Juvederm Ultra Plus or Juvederm Voluma. This mainly depends on the current state and shape of your lips and may require 2 – 3 syringes to acquire your desired result. When you come to Dr. Schwarzburg’s NYC medical spa, you can discuss your aesthetic goals with him during your consultation, so he can decide which Juvederm product is suitable for you to get lips like Kim Kardashian.


Given that each individual patient is unique in terms of facial anatomy, lip shape, and aesthetic goals, there is no single Juvederm filler that is best for the lips. If you have very thin lips and want a subtle enhancement for a fuller, yet natural look, then Juvederm Vollure may be the best option for you. Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Voluma are known for their significant increase in volume upon injection, which is why they are ideally used on patients looking for a fuller or more dramatic enhancement. If you’ve noticed your lips becoming thinner and wrinklier over time, Juvederm Volbella is an excellent solution to rejuvenate your lips in a subtle yet refreshing way, restoring lost volume and filling in those pesky perioral lines that have developed over the years.


Yes! Juvederm Voluma is a denser filler which typically results in a more dramatic outcome. It is often used via the Russian Lip Technique, which is an injection technique that increases the vertical height of the lips. Only Voluma possesses enough resistance to the compressive force of the lips to serve as a structural rod keeping the lips stretched out vertically. This creates a natural looking fullness without the outward protrusion or “ducky look” often associated with lip fillers. Once again, while Juvederm Voluma can absolutely be used on the lips, it isn’t ideal for everyone and fully depends on the type of look you are going for and whether or not the anatomical structure of your lips is a good fit for this particular filler. 


If you are looking to emphasize the shapeliness of your lips, particularly along your cupid’s bow, Juvederm Volbella is a great option for a gentle and effective enhancement to accentuate the overall shape of your lips. The best injection technique to give prominence to the cupid’s bow is the Russian lip technique, which Dr. Schwarzburg offers exclusively at his medical spa located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York.

Juvederm injections can be used for a wide range of cosmetic purposes as its many formulations are customized to treat various areas and cosmetic concerns in the face. The ideal candidate is an overall healthy adult looking to improve their appearance by contouring, emphasizing, and evening out specific facial features. Juvederm can be used to treat age related deficiencies to fill in deep wrinkles and folds, fine lines around the lips, and to restore lost facial volume in the periorbital and zygomatic regions, as well as the lips. The product is used on both men and women of all ages above 18 to enhance the lips, cheeks, jawline and chin, among other regions. 

In addition, the Juvederm family of fillers can also be used for preventative purposes, to mitigate the gradual formation of the inevitable signs of aging.

There are some contraindications that may disqualify you from being a candidate for Juvederm. If you have the tendency to have allergic reactions, you should consult with Dr. Schwarzburg to make sure that Juvederm is safe for you. If you have an active infection or a cold sore in the area of concern, it must be controlled and treated before a filler can be injected. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not get fillers, as there are no clinical studies on this demographic, making the injection of Juvederm unethical and potentially unsafe. 

You should also have realistic expectations of your results, which is why a thorough discussion during your consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg at his NYC medical practice is important to determine whether Juvederm filler is right for you. For example, while Juvederm can lift certain regions of the face and decrease mild skin laxity, if you have severe sagging or droopy jowls, Juvederm will likely not be the appropriate treatment option for you.


In the United States, Juvederm can legally be injected in patients ages 18 and up. However, if you are under 18, doctors may inject Juvederm as long as you have parental consent. There are also some providers that restrict the age of injection to 21 and above.


While there are certain cosmetic procedures that may cause damage to patients with a darker complexion, Juvederm has been clinically evaluated on several skin tones and is confirmed safe for patients of all skin tones and colors. Clinical studies have provided evidence that the risk of hyperpigmentation or scarring is not applicable when it comes to Juvederm injections. The primary procedures that may affect darker complexions typically involve thermal energy and lasers, such as Fraxel.


Several studies have concluded that tobacco smoke is toxic for skin cells and ages the skin significantly. Clinical trials have found that skin elasticity and the density of the epidermis is far lower in smokers than non-smokers, and the thickness and density of the dermis, epidermis, and nasolabial folds are significantly lowered due to a reduction in collagen production and hyaluronic acid. As such, smoking can affect the longevity of your Juvederm results as it thins out your skin and reduces collagen levels, an essential protein that keeps your skin firm and supple.


Overall, Juvederm injections do not require much preparation, though Dr. Schwarzburg recommends discontinuing blood thinners and NSAIDS such as Ibuprofen and Aspirin, as well as smoking and drinking alcohol 1 – 2 days before your appointment. While this is not required, the consumption of alcohol and blood thinners may make you more susceptible to bruising. You may also take 2 Tylenols 1 hour before your treatment to mitigate potential discomfort if you are sensitive to pain. 

Before your appointment at Dr. Schwarzburg’s medspa in NYC for your Juvederm filler, it is best to come in with a clean, makeup-free face, as your makeup will be removed in the treatment area regardless to avoid the risk of infection.

Bruising and swelling for 2 – 3 days are common side effects associated with injectables. As such, if you have any special events coming up, you should schedule your appointment accordingly.


The first step before your actual Juvederm injections can take place, is a consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg in which you will discuss your aesthetic goals, questions, and concerns, and go over your medical history and previous cosmetic procedures. Your consultation is the most important component of your overall Juvederm experience, as all the details discussed with Dr. Schwarzburg will be taken into consideration as he optimizes a treatment plan catered to your individual needs. Once your plan has been completed and you are a confirmed candidate for Juvederm injections, you can schedule your appointment for a later date, or get your filler on the same day.

Before the injection process, medical photographs will be taken for your personal patient records. Depending on the area of concern, a topical numbing agent may be applied – Dr. Schwarzburg does not apply lidocaine numbing cream for under eyes, as the cream causes mild swelling, making the injection process less precise in such complex regions. If applicable, once the numbing cream has settled within 15 – 20 minutes, the area will be properly sanitized with alcohol and the injection points will be mapped out and marked with a skin safe marker.

On average, the injection process of Juvederm will take no longer than 30 minutes, after which you will be cleaned up, provided with ice packs, and a post-care guide. You may experience initial swelling, redness, and tenderness for the first 24 – 48 hours post-injection. While there is no true downtime that requires bed-rest, you should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area and forgo your workouts for 2 days following your appointment. 

You may be advised to return 2 weeks later for a follow-up appointment for Dr. Schwarzburg to evaluate and confirm that your Juvederm filler has settled and healed properly and perform touch-ups if needed.


The average amount of time spent at the clinic for your Juvederm injections is 30 – 45 minutes. This depends on whether or not you need numbing cream, which takes 15 minutes to settle, and the number of syringes used to achieve your desired result. If you are getting more than 1 area injected, your appointment may last longer, though the overall injection process per area takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes.


Depending on your pain tolerance, Juvederm injections can be slightly uncomfortable, though they are usually well tolerated by the majority of Dr. Schwarzburg’s patients who live in New York City. With the application of a topical numbing cream, you may feel a mild pinch, though the level of pain associated with Juvederm injections never requires anything beyond a local anesthetic. Additionally, most Juvederm fillers contain 0.3% of lidocaine, making the overall injection process relatively painless and comfortable. The needle used to inject the product is an ultra-fine 30 – 32 gauge needle, which offers superior precision and minimal discomfort.


There is no true downtime after receiving Juvederm injections. You may experience swelling and bruising for 3 – 5 days after your appointment, in which case you may want to steer clear from social events – though this is entirely up to you. 

In terms of aftercare, you will be provided with an ice pack to apply for the first 24 hours, and should limit your alcohol consumption, skip your workouts, and avoid heat, like saunas, steam rooms, or direct sun exposure for 2 days post-treatment to avoid excess swelling. You should also refrain from rubbing or massaging the treated area for up to 3 days to avoid filler migration and to allow your filler to settle properly. If you experience bruising, you may apply a hot compress on day 2, which will speed up the healing process.


Mild exercise like stretching and speed walks is okay immediately after your appointment. However, Dr. Schwarzburg advises his patients to steer clear of strenuous exercises such as running, heavy weight lifting, or gymnastics for 24 – 48 hours post-injection, as such exercises often increase blood flow in the face, potentially resulting in excess bruising or swelling, or facilitating filler migration.


Juvederm injections are minimally invasive and pose little risk for complications and minimal side effects. Nevertheless, there is always the possibility of experiencing on or the other negative by-product which you should be aware of.

Minor, normal, and common side effects include redness immediately after injection, and edema, also known as swelling as your body responds to the punctures of the needle with mild inflammation. In addition, due to the vascularity of certain treatment areas, there is always the possibility of a small blood vessel being punctured resulting in a minor hematoma beneath the skin, also known as a ecchymosis. Swelling can be mitigated by applying an ice pack, while bruising can be remedied with a hot compress the day after your appointment. You may also experience some tenderness for 2 – 3 days post-injection, which is normal and can be reduced with over the counter ibuprofen.

Rare side effects and complications include lumps, bumps, or granuloma formation, which can be eliminated with hyaluronidase or steroid injections or simply subside on their own over time. Discoloration or a Tyndall effect may occur, specifically under the eyes, if the filler was placed too superficially.

The best way to avoid any risks or side effects is to seek out the best Juvederm injector in NYC, such as a board certified cosmetic physician who specializes in minimally invasive procedures and injectables, with extensive medical experience, like Dr. Schwarzburg.


The number of Juvederm sessions needed is completely variable and depends on a number of factors. For example, if it’s your first time getting cheek filler, chances are that you may be concerned about looking puffy or overdone, in which case you might opt for less product than your provider’s recommendation. Once your cheek filler has settled, you may decide to return for a second session to add more filler to achieve your desired result. 

Juvederm fillers can last anywhere from 9 to 18 months before they fully wear off. Some of Dr. Schwarzburg’s patients come in for touch-ups every 4 – 6 months to maintain their results, while others wait until the Juvederm has been fully metabolized by the body to schedule their next appointment. Depending on your individual response to the product, the number of sessions needed will be determined by how long your results last, and when you want to come back for more.


The number of Juvederm syringes needed varies on a case by case basis and depends on a number of factors, including the treatment area, the severity of your case, and your desired aesthetic outcome.

For example, if you’ve been insecure about your thin lips and want a natural looking yet noticeable difference in size, then one syringe will likely suffice. If you are struggling with age related volume loss under your eyes and along the cheeks, it may require anywhere from 1 – 4 syringes of product to create a more youthful appearance, depending on the gravity of deflation in that particular region.

All in all, Dr. Schwarzburg is a firm believer in a “less is more” approach and typically starts off with only 1 syringe of Juvederm, adding more as needed during your follow-up appointment. Dr. Schwarzburg is all about creating a natural look, which is why his conservative approach prevents patients from walking out with overfilled, puffy, or unnatural looking results.


Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler and absorbs water molecules surrounding the treated region immediately upon injection because of its hydrophilic properties. Because Juvederm consists of a gel formulation, your results will be instant, though swelling and bruising may get in the way of observing your final outcome, which will be evident within 3 – 7 days.


Juvederm injections are complex and require outstanding skill and expertise to execute properly, based on each individual patient’s unique anatomy, facial structure, and aesthetic goals. 

Before your Juvederm injections you may have had sunken under eyes and dark circles that started in teenage year and were difficult to disguise even with your best concealer. This can be incredibly frustrating especially when you want to go out or go to work without constantly looking tired. After your Juvederm under eye filler, your dark circles will no longer be an issue as the volume under your eyes has been restored, not only making it easier to apply your makeup, but making you look fresh and awake even without having to apply concealer.

Before your Juvederm lip filler, your insecurities of having thin lips make it difficult for you to feel confident as a woman, especially if applying makeup or lip liner to make them appear fuller doesn’t do much. After your Juvederm injections, your lips will be just the right size with a natural look and no indications of ever having anything done. 

It is important to keep in mind that today’s societal beauty standards are often influenced by celebrities and models on social media, whose photos are frequently edited to perfection. We all have different facial anatomy, meaning that it is nearly impossible to recreate the exact same look as seen all over social media. Nevertheless, Juvederm is an incredible product used used to correct numerous imperfections, insecurities, and to emphasize facial features in a way that is catered to your individual needs and aesthetic desires.


A primary fear of many patients is that Juvederm Voluma or any type of filler will make them look puffy and overdone. This is often seen in unfortunate botched celebrities who have either undergone an overwhelming amount of surgical procedures, or generally in people on the street, social media, or even friends, who were likely injected by an inexperienced or unqualified injector. 

Juvederm Voluma itself does not make you look puffy or pillow-faced, as long as it is injected properly by an excellent provider. The level of expertise of your doctor is extremely important, as this puffy pillow face look is usually the result of overfilling the treated area. As a board certified cosmetic surgeon with over a decade of experience in cosmetic medicine, specializing in minimally invasive treatments, such as Juvederm Voluma, Dr. Schwarzburg has mastered the injection of Juvederm Voluma and knows exactly how much product needs to be injected to achieve a natural result in any region of the face. In addition, his level of expertise and consistent training in the newest and most innovative injection techniques, allows him to offer his patients the additional benefit of utilizing the appropriate injection technique to achieve their desired outcome.

On average, you can expect your Juvederm filler to last for 9 – 18 months, though the longevity of your Juvederm results depend on various factors including the amount of product used, the treated area, and your biological response to the filler itself. Some patients metabolize fillers quicker than others, for example, individuals that engage in above average physical activity who generally have a higher metabolism. The treatment area will also influence how long your results will last, as more animated regions of the face, such as the lips and nasolabial folds, generally cause your filler to disintegrate quicker than in areas that are less mobile, like the cheeks. The type of Juvederm product used may also affect the longevity of your results. Juvederm Ultra Plus is known to last 9 – 12 months, while Juvederm Volbella and Voluma last 12 months or longer. Based on clinical studies, Juvederm Vollure is the longest lasting of the Juvederm family, lasting up to 18 months. 


Juvederm Volbella typically lasts 12 months or longer, while Juvederm Ultra Plus may last 9 – 12 months. However, everyone responds differently to different products, meaning that the average longevity of Volbella and Ultra Plus may not apply to you. The best way to find out which filler works best and gives you the longer lasting result, is to try both and compare your individual response to each of the two.


Juvederm is not permanent as it is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler, meaning that it is biodegradable and is gradually metabolized by the body over time. Most Juvederm fillers last approximately 1 year, though you can maintain your results by getting routine touch-ups.


While there are some natural ways to disperse your filler quicker, there is no way to get rid of your Juvederm results without medical intervention. If you decide that the filler you have isn’t right for you and want to reverse it, the best option is to get it dissolved via hyaluronidase injections, which instantly dissolves the product upon injection.


Yes! Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler which can be dissolved using hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks hyaluronic acid down without damaging surrounding tissue or free-floating naturally hyaluronic acid molecules in your body. Dr. Schwarzburg often treats patients at his medical spa in NYC with hyaluronidase, who come in with unsatisfactory Juvederm results from another provider. With a few injections of the product, your Juvederm filler can be safely dissolved within 24 hours.


So you’re ready to get your Juvederm injections and are asking yourself, how much does Juvederm cost? The answer to this question is versatile as the pricing depends on several contributing factors including the number of syringes purchased, the treatment area, the experience level of your injector, and the location of the practice.

On average, the cost of one syringe of Juvederm can range from $800 to $1800 at a reputable New York City cosmetic dermatology practice. 

The primary factors that will affect the cost of your Juvederm filler include:

  • The experience level of your injector – a board certified cosmetic physician with extensive medical training will likely charge more than a nurse practitioner whose experience level may be harder to grasp.
  • The geographical location of the clinic – larger cities such as NYC or LA are generally more expensive than suburban areas, not excluding the cost of Juvederm injections. In Manhattan, the price will likely be higher than a suburban area such as Westchester.
  • The type of Juvederm product and number of syringes needed – Most Juvederm products have similar pricing, though some are more expensive than others as they tend to last longer or provide more volume, such as Juvederm Voluma or Volbella. The number of syringes needed will inevitably affect the total sum spent on your treatment, though many clinics offer special discounts and package deals for patients who need more filler.

At Skinly Aesthetics we also offer payment plans and accept FSA and HSA flexible spending cards.


Juvederm can be used in conjunction with various other dermal fillers, such as Restylane, neurotoxins, and skin tightening treatments depending on your overall goal and the area being treated.

Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport, are injectables that can be used to relax certain facial muscles and restrict their contractions, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Neuromodulators can also be used if you are getting Juvederm for jawline contouring and would like to slim down your lower face with Botox jaw reduction. The toxin is also sometimes injected right above the lip in addition to a Juvederm lip filler for a Botox lip flip, further enhancing your results.

Patients looking to improve the texture and quality of their skin in addition to their Juvederm liquid facelift often receive thermal energy resurfacing treatments including Secret RF microneedling and Fraxel laser, both of which target various dermal layers to stimulate collagen production, tighten the skin, and smooth out imperfections, lines, and scars. Other, more mild medical grade facials include AquaGold, Mesotherapy, and the Carbon laser facial. AquaGold and Mesotherapy are intradermal vitamin infusion treatments that are applied via microneedling, and often contain small amounts of Juvederm within their serum formulation.

In some cases, patients are looking to lift lax skin only to find that Juvederm alone won’t be enough. If this is your case, an excellent minimally invasive alternative to a surgical face lift is a PDO thread lift, which can be used to elevate saggy skin around the jawline, midface, and neck, amongst other areas, in addition to Juvederm. Another dermal filler, aside from Juvederm, that is used for jawline contouring is Radiesse, which is a firmer non hyaluronic acid based filler.

Finally, Juvederm is often combined with Sculptra, an injectable product made of Poly-L-lactic acid that is used as a non surgical butt lift. Hyaluronic acid combined with PLLA will result in a quicker and more dramatic Sculptra Butt lift.


Yes! Both Juvederm and Restylane are HA fillers that come with several varying product formulations. The two are often combined as some are more suitable for certain regions of the face. For example, Restylane is often more appropriate for under eye restoration, while Juvederm Voluma is better suited for cheek filler. Though the two areas go hand in hand, different fillers may be combined to achieve optimal results.


After several successful clinical trials, Juvederm was FDA approved in 2006 and deemed safe for intradermal use to treat facial volume loss. Today it is used for various cosmetic purposes and is one of the best known fillers across the globe. Juvederm comes with minimal risks and side effects as long as performed by a skilled and properly trained medical expert.

  • Juvederm is instantly visible upon injection. This means that you will be able to observe results right away without having to wait several days for the product to take effect.


  • Hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent and will not last longer than 18 months. For maintenance, you may get routine touch-ups for semi-permanent results.
  • Juvederm can be used to restore lost facial volume, though it will not treat severe sagginess or skin laxity.
  • You may need more than a single syringe to get the results you want. In some cases, patients need up to 3 or 4 mL of product to achieve their desired outcome.
