More than ever, society is hyper-focused on appearance. While at one time you could overlook a few lines, a less-than-perfect pout, or features that have lost volume, the advent of social media and ever-present high-definition cameras have changed that. Fortunately, the aesthetics world is also focused on how you look—whether you’re searching for the best anti-aging skincare regimen or effective cosmetic treatments, there is something out there for everyone.
If you’ve started to notice that makeup and good skincare aren’t doing the trick, dermal fillers may be the solution. Injectable fillers are a nonsurgical treatment to diminish wrinkles and add volume where you need it—for both definition and an overall youthful, attractive look.
We offer the entire line of JUVÉDERM fillers at Pure Medspa in Medford, OR, providing you with a wide range of choices to address everything from flat cheeks to thin lips to lines and wrinkles. Our highly trained and experienced injectors will work with you to determine the right filler for your needs, ensuring that you leave our office looking beautiful and natural—without anyone knowing that you’ve had a cosmetic procedure. We offer other dermal fillers, in addition to Sculptra® Aesthetic.
What Is JUVÉDERM Made Of?
The JUVÉDERM family of fillers is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a very small molecule found naturally in almost every cell in your body. It has the amazing ability to retain 1,000 times its weight in water.
This little molecule is an essential part of nearly all the systems in your body because it binds with water and forms a viscous gel that lubricates and moisturizes everything from your skin to your joints to your eyes. In fact, about 50 percent of the hyaluronic acid molecules in your body are found in your skin, as they work to keep tissues balanced and adequately hydrated.
When used in injectable fillers, HA gel softens and smooths creases and lines, fills in deep wrinkles and folds, and adds volume to places where it is lacking—and it does all of this using its natural capacity for keeping your skin looking healthy and supple.
How Much Does JUVÉDERM Cost?
At our Medford medspa, JUVÉDERM is typically priced by the syringe. During your consultation, your injector will assess how many syringes you need and provide you with a personalized pricing estimate.
The JUVÉDERM Family of Fillers
The FDA approved JUVÉDERM in 2006 to treat facial folds and wrinkles. Since then, several other variations of JUVÉDERM fillers have been added, each with a specific formulation and purpose.
JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM XC
The original members of the JUVÉDERM family of fillers are JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM XC. The only variation in these formulations is that JUVÉDERM XC has the addition of lidocaine, allowing those sensitive to pain to further minimize potential discomfort during the procedure. We typically use JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM XC to treat mild to moderate lines around the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds), as well as between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), between the nose and upper lip (the philtrum), and the earlobes. Results last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC
Ultra Plus XC has a formulation similar to JUVÉDERM XC, and it is used to treat the same areas of your face, but Ultra Plus XC is typically used to address moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. This is because the molecules in Ultra Plus XC are larger, which can provide a bit more volume and longevity of results.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE targets more severe nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and smile lines, offering results lasting up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is used to smooth and soften the appearance of perioral lines (or “lipstick lines”) around your mouth for up to a year. VOLBELLA is also one of the most popular lip fillers.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is designed to restore volume, contour, and lift to your cheeks and midface that is often lost as a result of the natural aging process. It can also add definition to the cheeks, chin, and jawline, with results that can last up to 2 years.

What To Expect From Your JUVÉDERM Treatment
Your JUVÉDERM treatment will take place in the comfort of our luxurious medspa and will likely take less than 30 minutes. The procedure is well-tolerated, especially if you receive one of the formulations containing lidocaine. However, we do apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to performing the injections to minimize any potential discomfort.

What Is JUVÉDERM Recovery Like?
JUVÉDERM injections are minimally invasive and require zero downtime for recovery—you can return to your daily activities immediately after your filler session without anyone knowing that you had anything “done.”
As with any injectable treatment, there may be some minor side effects at the injection site, including:
- Hardness or small lumps or bumps
- Tenderness, mild pain, or itching
- Swelling or bruising
If you experience any of the above effects, rest assured that they are temporary and usually resolve on their own within a few days.
How Long Do JUVÉDERM Results Last?
You will see immediate results from your JUVÉDERM treatments and continued improvements for about 1 to 2 weeks. Your JUVÉDERM results can last up to a year (and sometimes more), depending on which filler was used and how quickly your body absorbs it.
