The Juvederm Collection includes multiple products that can be used for a variety of facial and aging concerns including wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume.
Juvederm® injectable gel dermal filler is non-surgical treatment that fills the soft tissue of the dermis, the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds of the laugh lines, smile lines and parenthesis,- (nasolabial folds).
Juvederm® is composed of Hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. It helps to provide elasticity and fullness. Over time our skin decreases production of Hyaluronic acid, and as it diminishes, the skin loses volume, thus increasing the formation of folds and wrinkles. Juvederm®’s unique manufacturing ensures a smooth gel consistency that flows easily into the skin and provides long-lasting, natural-looking results.Juvederm® is the only Hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is FDA approved and lasts up to one year!
Juvéderm includes a range of formulas that are designed for different purposes and areas of the face. Dr. Ellen offers several varieties of Juvéderm. You can learn more about each of these products on the Envee Aesthetics site by clicking on the product names below.

There are two types of facial wrinkles: Dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles appear when you move your facial muscles when smiling, frowning, squinting, etc. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles can become static—permanently etched in your face.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is uniquely designed to target deeper folds in the skin. This formula is typically used for deeper nasolabial folds or severe wrinkles or to address more significant volume loss. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC has a thicker consistency than other forms of Juvéderm and lasts for about a year before patients require maintenance injections.
Juvéderm Volbella is specifically formulated for use in the lips as a method of nonsurgically augmenting their size. This makes the product useful for both genetically thinner lips or volume loss in the lips as a result of aging. Juvéderm Volbella is also used in some cases to address perioral fine lines, known as smoker’s lines.
Juvéderm Vollure is a popular option for filling in mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face, creating a more even and youthful skin texture. Vollure’s formula is known for being more malleable and flexible than other dermal fillers, making it a good option for more mobile areas of the face.
