At Alexander Medical Spa, we want to help you look like the most rejuvenated, youthful, and confident version of yourself. Dermal fillers help us achieve this goal by correcting your top cosmetic concerns without surgery. We can smooth wrinkles, reduce the appearance of fine lines, add volume to your lips, and more with Juvederm Fillers.
WHAT IS JUVÉDERM?
Juvéderm is an injectable gel that can add volume to the skin and smooth away cosmetic concerns. This incredible filler is soft, smooth, and crystal clear. Technically, there are several types of Juvéderm fillers; however, they are often collectively referred to by the one name.
The star ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that serves as a moisturizing factor – meaning it has the ability to bind water and thereby hydrate and “plump” the skin. When used as a filler, HA offers immediate improvement, natural-looking results, and long-lasting patient satisfaction.
The many benefits of Juvéderm include:
- Quick treatment time
- Safe for all skin types
- No post-treatment downtime
- Instant, long-lasting results
- Low allergy risk and no need to perform a sensitivity test
- Treatment can be repeated to maintain optimal results
WHERE IS JUVÉDERM USED?
Juvéderm can be used on many areas of the face, including:
- Nasolabial folds, also known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines”
- Marionette lines that start at the corner of the mouth and travel towards the chin
- Drooping corners of the mouth and perioral lines
- Forehead lines
- Eyebrows, including the “11” lines between brows

IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR JUVÉDERM
Since Juvéderm is made of a substance that is already present in the body, most people are suitable candidates for this treatment. If you are concerned with visible signs of facial aging, you may be a great candidate for Juvéderm. This treatment may also be right for you if you want to augment your natural features, such as your lips.
In general, you should consider Juvéderm if you:
- Are at least 21 years old
- Want to correct aesthetic concerns without surgery
- Are looking for a treatment that provides instant, long-lasting results
- Are not allergic to lidocaine, a numbing ingredient used in some formulations
JUVÉDERM OPTIONS WE OFFER
At Alexander Medical Spa, we want to help you look like the most rejuvenated, youthful, and confident version of yourself. Juvéderm fillers can help us achieve this goal by correcting your top cosmetic concerns without surgery. We can smooth wrinkles, reduce the appearance of fine lines, add volume to your lips, and more.
Each Juvéderm filler is designed for a specific purpose. To learn more about what Juvéderm filler may be right for you, please call 305-944-1122 to schedule your individualized consultation..
We offer several forms of Juvéderm, including:
- Juvéderm Ultra / Ultra Plus
- Juvéderm Voluma
- Juvéderm Volbella
JUVÉDERM ULTRA / ULTRA PLUS
Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus can both improve signs of aging caused by skin laxity, fat loss, and bone support loss. Juvéderm Ultra is also an excellent choice for adding volume to the lips and correcting asymmetry.
Both of these fillers are used to treat facial wrinkles and enhance your features. The main difference between the two is that Ultra Plus has a slightly thicker consistency than Ultra. Therefore, Ultra Plus may provide more dramatic and potentially longer-lasting results. On the other hand, Juvéderm Ultra may be more appropriate for fine wrinkles and scars, or subtle augmentation.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA FOR MIDFACE VOLUME

When it comes to facial aging, men and women interested in turning back the clock often need to address midface volume loss. After the age of 30, there is a consistent decrease in overall facial volume because of bone, fat, and collagen loss.
WHAT IS JUVÉDERM VOLUMA?
Voluma is manufactured and distributed by Allergan, the makers of recognizable brands such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Kybella. Juvéderm Voluma is best used for mid-face volume loss. When expertly placed in the superficial and deep fat compartments of the face, it can make patients look youthful and refreshed.
Unlike other hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Voluma commonly lasts up to 18 to 24 months. The soft and natural looking results of Voluma combined with its longevity are what make it an ideal filler for many patients.
Voluma offers a non-surgical treatment option for the aging face and is made up of a component, HA, which is found in our bodies. HA has the unique capacity to bind 1,000 times its weight in water. When used as a filler, HA offers immediate improvement, natural-looking results, and long-lasting patient satisfaction.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR JUVÉDERM VOLUMA?
The ideal candidates for Juvéderm Voluma require cheek pad fill, cheekbone definition, or chin area augmentation. Because Juvéderm Voluma is thicker and more robust than traditional hyaluronic acid based fillers, it can provide a greater lift to the midface when placed on the bone.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA LIP FILLER
Fuller, better-defined lips are the perfect complement to a terrific smile and glowing complexion. Unfortunately, nature didn’t give all of us a plump, well-proportioned pout. In addition, exposure to the South Florida sun depletes collagen and elastin in the skin, contributing to lines around the mouth. Lips also thin and elongate over time, and the graceful cupid’s bow of our youth tends to flatten with age.
Juvéderm Volbella is specifically designed for treating the lips and lines around the mouth (i.e. lipstick lines, smoker’s lines). It adds immediate volume and continues to hydrate lips for up to 12 months.
THE VOLBELLA DIFFERENCE
- Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology results in a smooth gel consistency, for a soft, natural feel. The HA particles in Volbella are small, avoiding an over-filled look.
- It is the longest-lasting lip filler available.
- Volbella is the first filler approved by the FDA for lip augmentation and improvement in perioral lines around the mouth. This treatment offers both fuller lips and softened lip lines.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR JUVÉDERM TREATMENT
A Juvéderm injection session typically takes less than 30 minutes, start to finish. However, your own treatment time will vary depending on the injections you receive and the areas that you decide to treat.
There is minimal downtime following treatment – most patients return to usual activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients experience minor side effects such as tenderness, swelling, or redness at injection sites, but they typically resolve quickly. Results are immediate and can last over a year, depending on the type of Juvéderm and individual factors. Most patients are so pleased with their new look that they eagerly schedule touch-up sessions.
COMBINING JUVÉDERM WITH OTHER INJECTABLES
Patients often wonder if they can receive different injections during one visit. The answer is yes. In fact, many individuals benefit from using more than one injectable, including BOTOX® which reduces muscle contractions. Multiple injectable products can work together with Juvéderm to create optimal results.
HOW MUCH DO JUVÉDERM TREATMENTS COST?
At Alexander Medical Spa, a syringe of Juvéderm – of any type – can cost from $480 – $600. However, the cost of your specific rejuvenation plan will depend on several factors.
The price of your treatment will vary based on:
- The number of sessions that you need
- The amount of product required during your appointment
- Your enrollment in rewards programs
