A non-surgical dermal filler, JUVÉDERM is popular with Ottawa men and women looking for smooth and long-lasting results. The JUVÉDERM line of products can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose without undergoing a facelift. As well, the products can also be used to restore lost volume to areas such as the cheeks and to maintain the results of facial plastic surgery. These versatile products use hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies, to plump wrinkles from the inside, creating a subtle, natural-looking result.
For patients who are considering surgical facial rejuvenation, a dermal filler, such as JUVÉDERM, is a great way to try out a new look before committing to surgery. The results of a single JUVÉDERM treatment can last up to 18 months.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® & VOLUMA™
The company that manufactures JUVÉDERM also has 2 similar products, VOLBELLA and VOLUMA. Dr. Silverman was one of the first to use these products in trials in the Ottawa area.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA is specifically formulated to enhance the lips and provide a natural appearance, either for people who have lost lip volume as they aged or for those who have small or thin lips that they would like to enhance. Our team can add volume to make the lips look younger and give them more pout, or we can better define the lip border. Results are clinically proven to last up to 12 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is used for enhancing the cheeks. Learn more about this innovative filler.
JUVÉDERM is administered in our office as an outpatient procedure and requires little to no downtime. During the treatment, a thin needle is inserted into the areas you'd like to target. Anesthetic ingredients in JUVÉDERM help minimize discomfort. Your appointment can last anywhere from 30-45 minutes, depending on the areas you'd like treated. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities as soon as their appointments are over. The results of a JUVÉDERM treatment are visible immediately.
JUVÉDERM is typically used to address the following concerns:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines
- Lip lines
- Lost volume in the cheeks or lips
Dermal fillers, including JUVÉDERM, can also help improve the results of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. During your first consultation, Dr. Silverman will create a treatment plan that's customized to your goals, time, and budget.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are JUVÉDERM injections painful?
No. JUVÉDERM fillers, like most injectable treatments, are formulated with a local anesthetic called lidocaine that helps minimize discomfort. We also use very small, thin, specialized needles to inject the filler to help patients remain comfortable during the treatments. Even though each patient's response at our Ottawa practice is unique, most tolerate JUVÉDERM treatments quite well.
What's the difference between JUVÉDERM and Restylane®
The fillers are similar, but you may be a better candidate for one or the other. Both fillers are made with hyaluronic acid and are useful for treating many of the same facial areas. Dr. Silverman may recommend one or the other based on his assessment of your unique needs and the condition of your skin. It's also common for us to use multiple fillers in a single session for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
How much does JUVÉDERM cost?
The price of cosmetic procedures varies by geographic region, the skill and training of the injector, and the areas being treated, among other factors. An injector with less experience may charge less than a plastic surgeon's practice, but it's important to remember that filler injections are medical procedures. Most patients compare prices when considering cosmetic treatments, but we recommend that patients don't base their choice primarily on price.
