In a complex process, a type of bacteria is bioingeneered specially to produce a variety of hyaluronic acid (HA) nearly identical to the one found in the human body. The resulting HA is purified and treated with an agent that causes it to firm up, and converts it to a stable gel form. The HA gel is then dispersed to create the smooth-textured gel known as JUVÉDERM®.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
In addition, because the syringes used to inject JUVÉDERM® are pre-filled by the manufacturer, and not in the clinic setting, the possibility of contamination prior to injection is virtually eliminated.
JUVÉDERM® is available in several varieties, each useful for a handful of specific purposes to help fight the signs of aging, regain your youthful appearance, and boost your self-esteem.

Types and Uses
At TCC, we use the following types of JUVÉDERM® for the indicated purposes:
Best for lip injections to plump up thin lips, and smooth lip lines and borders
Best for lip injections to plump the lips; can also be used for non-surgical nose jobs, filling out nasolabial folds (smile lines), smoothing lines on earlobes, and filling in acne scars
Best for plumping and smoothing cheeks, but also to plump and smooth the hands, chin, and temples; also used for labia puffing
Best for treating tear troughs (the under-eye area) to help diminish dark circles and fine lines, and for labia puffing, as it is a thinner product ideal for the thin skin in these areas
A few minutes before injecting JUVÉDERM® into the area(s) you’re having treated, our injectionist may apply a numbing cream to help prevent discomfort. In addition to the HA gel, JUVÉDERM® syringes contain lidocaine, another numbing agent, to further alleviate any discomfort you may feel as a result of the injections.
