As we age, the production of the structural proteins collagen and elastin begins to decrease, leading to loose, sagging skin, loss of facial volume, and drooping fat pads. These signs of the natural aging process can be particularly visible along the jawline, as sagging skin and fat pads contribute to the appearance of jowls and loss of soft tissue can contribute to a receding chin. Lack of strong jawline definition can make many patients feel like they do not have their ideal face shape. In fact, a study conducted by Allergan Aesthetics found that 40% of patients interested in cosmetic treatment are interested in therapy for the lower face and jawline. Previously, many patients believed that the only option for achieving a perfectly contoured jawline was to undergo cosmetic surgery, but that could not be further from the truth. The ideal face shape is easily accomplished with Juvederm Volux XC, a hyaluronic acid filler that contours and augments the jawline, all without the need for any recovery time. Available at board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green’s New York City dermatology office, Juvederm Volux XC is the new Gold Standard when it comes to non-invasive facial contouring.

Juvederm Volux XC is the first ever FDA-approved dermal filler designed specifically to treat the jawline. This hyaluronic acid filler uses proprietary Vycross technology to achieve optimum cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid for higher cohesivity and longer-lasting results. Juvederm Volux can be used to treat severe loss of jawline definition, erase lower facial folds, reduce the appearance of jowls, and provide the ideal facial contour. Juvederm Volux offers results that last for 6-18 months with minimal side effects and no downtime required after the treatment, meaning patients can immediately return to their regularly scheduled activities.

Dr. Green is always on the cutting edge of new dermatological treatments and is one of the first injectors to add Juvederm Volux to her long list of available treatments. An expert, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Green has been treating patients in her Upper East Side New York City dermatology office for more than 25 years. With her less-is-more approach to dermal fillers, Dr. Green has been using the Juvederm line of dermal fillers for years to provide patients with a natural-looking, youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Known for high patient satisfaction, Dr. Green has been voted one of New York City’s top healthcare providers by such publications as New York Magazine, Super Doctors, and Castle Connolly.

What is Juvéderm Volux XC?

Juvederm Volux is the newest member of the Juvederm family of dermal fillers and is the first FDA-approved filler to contour the jawline and treat loss of jawline definition. Juvederm Volux is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery treatments for jawline enhancement. Approved in August of 2022, Juvederm Volux is the ideal solution for a natural-looking, contoured, or chiseled jawline for the many patients dissatisfied with the appearance of their jawline. This hyaluronic acid filler is now the sixth in the Juvederm portfolio of dermal fillers, which can be used to address a wide variety of facial concerns, including restoring volume to the mid-face, eliminating the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, enhancing the lips, and now, contouring the jawline.

What is Juvederm Volux made of?

Juvederm Volux is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides contour and volume restoration when injected deep into the skin. Juvederm’s propriety Vycross technology creates cross-linking between hyaluronic acid molecules, resulting in a smooth, specialized gel filler. Juvederm Volux also contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, in its formulation to alleviate any discomfort felt during the injection process.

What is Juvederm Volux used for?

Juvederm Volux is the first dermal filler treatment that has been FDA-approved specifically to treat the jawline. Patients of any gender may feel unsatisfied with the contour of their jawline. Age or genetics can result in the enhanced appearance of jowls – which form due to drooping fat pads or skin – or a severe loss of jawline definition. Juvederm Volux can be used to address these concerns to provide a more chiseled jawline, create a more masculine-looking facial structure, smooth away facial folds and jowls, and help to adjust facial proportions for an ideal facial structure. No matter your goals when it comes to the jawline, Dr. Green can make Juvederm Volux work for you to achieve your perfect facial contour.

What is the difference between Volux and Voluma?

Juvederm Voluma is a member of the Juvederm line of products that are specifically FDA-approved to treat age-related volume loss in the mid-face and for chin augmentation. The hyaluronic acid filler has also been used off-label by providers to contour the jawline. However, Juvederm Volux has been designed specifically with jawline definition in mind, formulated using a thicker hyaluronic acid-based gel with more lift capacity and cohesivity in order to give a “chiseled” or more structured appearance to the jaw. With the introduction of Juvederm Volux to the family of Juvederm fillers, Voluma will best be used to add volume to the mid-face to fill in the hollows under the eyes for a natural-looking, youthful appearance and to help improve the profile of the chin for chin enhancement.

How does Juvederm Volux work as a jawline filler?

To contour the jawline effectively, Juvederm Volux contains one of the thickest gels out of all of the Juvederm dermal fillers. The hyaluronic acid-based Juvederm Volux provides a higher lift capacity and long-lasting results with firm cross-linking of hyaluronic acid. The filler is injected deep into the skin, where it immediately works to give volume and contour to the treatment area. Over time, the filler also boosts the production of collagen in the treatment area, which helps to produce smoother, firmer skin. Full results of the treatment can be seen after two to three weeks once the filler has settled, providing a more lifted, softer, contoured jawline.

Which is better for jawline contouring: Juvederm Volux or cosmetic surgery?

Juvederm Volux is the first FDA-approved dermal filler designed specifically for use along the jawline to improve jawline definition, contour, and symmetry. Many patients find the accessibility of Juvederm Volux to be higher than a surgical jawline procedure, called an Orthognathic surgery, used to reshape the jawline. Cosmetic surgery, such as Orthognathic surgery, comes at a high cost and with an increased risk of serious side effects. The price of cosmetic surgery for jawline enhancement can range from $10,000 to as much as $56,000, and often the procedure is not covered by insurance. The surgery requires patients to be put under general anesthesia, and cuts will be made in the mouth to shave the bone down, slimming the jawline. The recovery time following the procedure is significant, requiring many patients to stay in the hospital for as many as four days. Side effects can include bleeding, swelling, pain, infection, and permanent scarring. While the results of a surgical jawline contouring procedure are permanent, many patients prefer the long-lasting results of dermal fillers, such as Juvederm Volux, contouring the jawline for the ideal face shape without the need for any downtime.

Who is a good candidate for Juvederm Volux?

Juvederm Volux is FDA-approved for individuals of good health aged 21 and older who are experiencing moderate to severe loss of volume and definition in the jawline. Individuals who are pregnant or currently breastfeeding should not get Juvederm Volux injections, as the effects in these individuals have not yet been tested. You should not get Juvederm Volux injections if you have known allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins, lidocaine, or other amide anesthetics. You should disclose to your injector if you have had severe allergies with a history of anaphylaxis or any bleeding disorders.

Where is Juvederm Volux Injected?

Juvederm Volux is injected under the soft tissue of the lower jaw for contouring and enhancement of the jawline. During your initial consultation with Dr. Green, she will assess your aesthetic concerns, facial anatomy, and medical history to determine if Juvederm Volux is the right dermal filler for you. On the day of your Juvederm Volux injections, a numbing cream will be sent to your local pharmacy, and you will be instructed to apply a thick layer to the treatment area one hour before your appointment. When you arrive at the office, the numbing cream will be removed, and the skin will be prepared for treatment. Medical photography will be taken to track your cosmetic progress throughout the treatment. Dr. Green will then assess your facial symmetry and mark the areas where Juvederm Volux will be injected.

How long does Juvederm Volux last?

Juvederm Volux is a temporary treatment that offers a safe and effective alternative to plastic surgery for jawline enhancement and contouring. In clinical trials, the vast majority (81.5%) of patients were satisfied with their jawline definition six months after the procedure, meaning that the results of the treatment are still prominent and satisfactory for six months after receiving the injections. Results have been shown to remain for approximately 12 months, after which patients can schedule a maintenance appointment to maintain the effects of the treatment. Dr. Green typically recommends receiving maintenance injections of Juvederm fillers once every six months to a year. During your initial consultation, Dr. Green will be able to recommend the treatment schedule that is best to maintain optimal results from the treatment.

Are there side effects to Juvederm Volux injections?

Juvederm Volux dermal injections are a safe and effective treatment for contouring the jawline with minimal risk of adverse events or possible side effects. Common side effects of Juvederm Volux are similar to the mild side effects of any injectable treatment and include bruising at or near the injection site, swelling, redness, discoloration, and tenderness. These mild side effects will resolve on their own within two weeks of receiving the treatment. Patients can also minimize the risk of bruising following the procedure by avoiding anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin and refraining from intense physical activity for at least 24 hours after treatment. Those prone to bruising can take Arnika pills prior to their appointment to prevent bruising and speed up the rate of healing for any bruising that occurs.

Infection or vascular occlusion can occur as a more serious side effect. However, the risk of developing a more serious adverse event decreases when you seek treatment from an experienced, board-certified injector, such as Dr. Green. Patients should disclose to Dr. Green if they have a history of severe allergies or if they have had known allergic reactions to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins found in hyaluronic acid fillers.

When does the swelling from Juvederm resolve?

Juvederm hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a safe and effective treatment option for improving facial contour, restoring lost volume, and filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Very few side effects are associated with Juvederm injectable treatment, and the most common side effects are typically mild, resolving independently within one to two weeks of receiving treatment. One such side effect is swelling at the injection site. Typically, swelling will subside one to two weeks after receiving the dermal filler injection.

Does Juvederm get better with time?

Following the treatment, Juvederm Volux will take some time to settle before patients will be able to see the full effects. Patients will notice an improvement immediately following the procedure. Still, it typically takes about two weeks for the filler to settle fully and for the full results of the treatment to be visible. Dermal fillers also help to boost collagen production in the treatment area, so even after the gel has fully settled, results may continue to improve over time.

Does Juvederm dissolve over time?

Juvederm Volux dermal filler injections are a temporary treatment to combat moderate to severe loss of jawline definition and provide patients with a well-defined jawline. All Juvederm products are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which, over six months to a year and a half, is gradually broken down by the body, causing the results to become less apparent after approximately six months. If patients are not satisfied with the procedure within those six months, however, the hyaluronic acid filler can be easily dissolved using an enzyme known as hyaluronidase. As such, not only is the treatment itself temporary, but the effects of the treatment can be immediately reversed if necessary.

How much does Juvederm Volux Cost?

Patients often ask, what is the cost of Juvederm Volux? The answer is that it depends. The pricing for treatment depends on the number of syringes necessary to address your aesthetic goals, the size and scope of the treatment area, and the type of institution at which you receive treatment. One syringe of Juvederm typically costs around $1100, and the number of syringes needed can vary from patient to patient. For jawline contouring, Dr. Green will normally use between two and four syringes for the best results. However, many patients choose to combine various types of dermal fillers for a “liquid facelift,” which will require different kinds of Juvederm filler and more syringes. Receiving treatment from an experienced injector may be more expensive than seeking treatment from a MedSpa. However, the risk of developing adverse events from the procedure is greatly decreased when you seek treatment from an experienced, board-certified dermatologist, such as Dr. Green.

Is Volux a good filler?

Juvederm Volux is the newest Juvederm injectable filler that has been shown to be very safe and effective in clinical studies, causing it to be FDA-approved in August of 2022. To receive FDA approval, a treatment has to demonstrate in clinical trials that it is both safe for patients to use and effective at addressing cosmetic concerns. In the pivotal study for Juvederm Volux, the dermal filler was nearly 70% effective at improving jawline definition and contouring six months after receiving the procedure. Additionally, 81.5% of patients were satisfied with their defined jawline six months after receiving the treatment, and 70.5% were satisfied with the lack of wrinkles or jowls on the lower face. As such, Juvederm Volux has been clinically shown to have long-lasting, effective results for the vast majority of patients.

Can Juvederm Volux treat jowls?

As we age, the production of the structural proteins collagen and elastin begins to decrease, leading to higher skin elasticity, volume loss, and drooping fat pads in the midface. Together, these signs of the natural aging process can culminate in sagging skin or pockets of fat along the jawline, contributing to the appearance of jowls. Several treatment methods are available to combat the appearance of jowls, and Juvederm Volux is among them. When injected into the jawline, the dermal filler can fill in sagging skin, giving the jawline a lifted and contoured look. Juvederm Volux can also be paired with Thermage radiofrequency laser treatment for skin tightening and CoolSculpting for eliminating stubborn pockets of fat. The best first step for treating jowls is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Green, who will examine the treatment area and recommend the treatment or series of treatments that will meet your aesthetic goals.

What are the different types of Juvederm fillers?

The Juvéderm collection of dermal fillers is one of the top families of dermal fillers available on the market today. With Juvederm Volux as the sixth unique filler to join the ranks of the Juvederm portfolio, there is a wide variety of areas that can be treated with the range of formulations of the Juvederm products. In addition to Juvederm Volux, all of the following Juvederm dermal fillers have been FDA-approved to treat certain areas of the face:

  • Juvederm Voluma XC – Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable gel filler that is FDA-approved to treat the mid-face and chin. The hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is used to correct volume loss in the cheeks that occurs as a result of the natural aging process and for chin enhancement for better definition and contouring.
  • Juvederm Vollure XC – This HA filler in the Juvederm family can be used to fill in moderate to severe wrinkles on the face, including the nasolabial folds.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC – Similarly to Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC has been FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
  • Juvederm Ultra XC – In addition to being FDA-approved to eliminate the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, Juvederm Ultra XC is also FDA-approved for lip injections. When used in the lips, Juvederm Ultra XC can help augment the lips and achieve the perfect pout, as well as correct fine lines in the perioral area.
  • Juvederm Volbella – Juvederm Volbella is a thinner gel than the other members of the Juvederm family, meaning that it works well to provide natural-looking results for lip enhancement, reduction of fine lines around the lips, and in the delicate under-eye area.

Can Juvederm Volux be used for the lips?

Juvederm Volux is best used on the lower face to eliminate the appearance of jowls and contour the jawline with excellent results. However, it is not the best member of the Juvederm family to use in the lips. Many patients turn to dermal fillers to help erase vertical lip lines and give the lips a perfect, pillowy pout, and to do so, Dr. Green recommends the use of Juvederm Volbella or Juvederm Ultra XC. Both Juvederm Volbella and Ultra XC are specifically FDA-approved for lip augmentation and to treat perioral lines that surround the lips. Both fillers last for up to a year. Still, they differ in the thickness of the hyaluronic acid-based gel – Juvederm Ultra XC is the thicker filler, meaning that Ultra XC can provide a more dramatic enhancement to the lips. In contrast, Volbella can give a more natural appearance. When you have your initial consultation with Dr. Green, the two of you will discuss your aesthetic goals, after which Dr. Green will recommend the dermal filler that will provide the best results for you.

What not to do after Juvederm dermal fillers for the lips

Several activities should be avoided following a Juvederm lip injection treatment to prevent unwanted side effects, such as swelling, redness, and irritation at the injection site. Dr. Green recommends avoiding makeup application for at least 2 hours post-treatment. Further, patients should avoid intense heat, direct sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and alcohol consumption for 24 hours after the injections. Once the treatment has been performed, Dr. Green’s office will provide patients with full aftercare instructions to limit potential side effects and achieve the best possible results.

Who makes Juvederm Volux?

The Juvederm portfolio of dermal fillers is produced by Global Allergan Aesthetics, a branch of the AbbVie company, which is known for producing a wide range of cosmetic treatments. With its mission statement to “develop, manufacture, and market a portfolio of leading aesthetic brands and products,” the company has produced a large range of injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers and Botox, body contouring, and other skincare products. Additionally, the company provides training on how to use their products safely and effectively to the best cosmetic healthcare providers, such as Dr. Green.

Which dermal filler is better? Juvederm Volux or Restylane?

Restylane is a different type of hyaluronic acid dermal filler available at Dr. Green’s New York City dermatology office. Restylane and Juvederm each have several different members of their dermal filler portfolio that are used to address signs of aging and provide the ideal facial contour across various areas of the face. Neither family of dermal fillers is inherently better than the other – they both provide patients with excellent results without the need for downtime. When it comes to treating the jawline specifically, the only FDA-approved dermal filler for that area of the face is Juvederm Volux. When you have your initial consultation with Dr. Green, she will examine the treatment area, and you will share your aesthetic goals to determine the type of dermal filler that will best fit your needs.

How to get started with Juvederm dermal fillers

Dermal fillers can serve many functions, from restoring lost volume to erasing wrinkles to augmenting the cheeks, lips, and jawline. As we age and collagen production decreases, signs of the natural aging process can set in on the face. Sagging skin and fat pads can emphasize the appearance of jowls along the jawline and a decrease in soft tissue to contribute to a receding chin. For patients who are looking for their ideal jawline shape without going under the knife and receiving plastic surgery, Juvederm Volux may be the best treatment option for you. A hyaluronic acid dermal filler, Juvederm Volux, works well to provide a chiseled, masculine jawline, reverse the effects of a receding jawline, and can help to give patients the ideal lower face contour. This innovative new dermal filler is available at board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green’s Upper East Side dermatology office.
