What Is Juvéderm Volux?
Juvéderm Volux is an injectable jawline filler and one of several dermal fillers in the Juvéderm product line. The FDA-approved filler is made of hyaluronic acid gel, which adds volume to the chin and jawline while smoothing the skin and creating a more youthful facial appearance.
What Should I Expect With a Juvéderm Volux Treatment?
The first step to take for your Juvéderm Volux treatment is a consultation to discuss your medical history, any allergies you have, any medications you’re currently taking, and your aesthetic goals for the procedure. Then you will receive a personalized treatment plan.
When the treatment begins, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the target area to prevent any pain during the procedure. Next, your injector will use a very fine needle to make several injections around the chin and jawline. In total, the process shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to complete.
When the Volux is injected into the jawline area, its proprietary technology provides it with the ideal texture for adding firm, defined volume. The cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles in the filler ensure that the results of the treatment are both impressive and long-lasting
Am I a Candidate for Juvéderm Volux?
Adults looking for a non-surgical option to improve the appearance of their chin and jawline may be good candidates for Juvéderm Volux. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should meet the following requirements:
- Be over the age of 21
- Be in generally good physical health
- Have no history of multiple severe allergies
- Have no allergies to lidocaine or any hyaluronic acid fillers
- Have realistic expectations for the procedure
- Be unsatisfied with the appearance of your jawline

Are there any side effects with Juvéderm Volux treatment?
Like most facial fillers, Juvéderm Volux has been shown to cause certain side effects in some patients. However, the symptoms are typically minor and tend to fade within one or two weeks. Possible side effects of the treatment include:
- Bumps around the injection sites
What can I expect from the results of Juvéderm Volux treatment?
After your Juvéderm Volux treatment, you’ll be able to see an improvement in your jawline volume and definition right away. However, because it often takes some time for swelling, bruising, and redness to subside, the final results of the procedure usually take between two and three weeks to become visible.
The results of the treatment can last for anywhere from 12 to 18 months before they start to fade. If you schedule a follow-up visit after six months or so, your injector can check on how the treatment is holding up and make any necessary adjustments to increase the longevity of the effects.
Can Juvéderm Volux be combined with other fillers?
Although Juvéderm Volux is only intended to treat the jawline and chin, the Juvéderm product line features several other fillers for other areas of the face. If you’re interested in adding volume in other places, discuss your aesthetic goals at your consultation.
Can Juvéderm Volux be dissolved?
Although it’s rarely necessary when working with a skilled injector, Juvéderm Volux can be dissolved using a special enzyme in a very simple procedure.
