We Care for the Health Of Our Patients
Every patient is fully evaluated prior to any treatment, and our JUVÉDERM physicians and dermatologists always hold your health as our top priority. It is advised that JUVÉDERM treatments be administered by a medical professional, rather than in a spa environment. It is generally considered important to hold off on these treatments until you reach 18 years of age, as the facial structure changes throughout the adolescent years.
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC is for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over the age of 21. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines in adults over the age of 21. Important Safety Information.
