Why Choose Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma is the most robust of fillers, desgined for maximal lift and is FDA approved to last for up to 2 years!
With age, our skin, fat and bone lose volume, resulting in a more hollow, angulated, or bottom heavy appearance. Genetics, sun exposure, aging, and weight changes can all contribute. Folds and jowls become more prominent as volume loss and gravity shifts the cheek downward.
Voluma because of its robust lifting capacity and long last of up to 2 years is ideal for areas that need more structure:
- Softly enhanced cheeks
- Midface lifting
- Chin augmentation
- Non-surgical rhinoplasty to lift, straighten, or even thin the appearance of the nose

Why Choose Volux?
Juvederm Volux is the newest member of the Vycross family of long lasting hyaluronic acid based fillers and is FDA-approved to provide jawline definition. Volux was designed to provide a natural yet durable definition to contour areas like the angle of the jaw, jowls, jawline, and chin. With age, all of us have bone loss that occurs along the lower third of the face, resulting in a saggy jawline and a retracted, shortened chin. Clinical trials of Volux showed a very high degree of satisfaction in those who were treated, with improvements lasting well over a year. Harmonizing the chin and jawline with fillers like Volux is one of the most natural ways to optimize facial appearance by bringing balance to the face.
Volux is used to provide definition and contour:
- Chin Augmentation
- Enhance jawline definition
- Tighten the jowl area
- Improve lower face sagging by providing optimal but soft-appearing lift
- Contour areas like the lower face and the angle of the jaw
- Improve the sagging skin under the chin and along the jawline and upper neck

Why Choose Vollure?
Vollure provides up to 18 months of softening, contouring, wrinkle and hollow filling on the face. It is an incredibly natural looking versatile filler, and is perfect for soft folds around the mouth, filling little shadows, glossing for a smoother texture all over the face, and even softly enhancing the lips.
Vollure provides up to 18 months of softening, contouring, wrinkle and hollow filling on the face.
Common areas for treatment with Vollure:

Why Choose Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella has the unique characteristics of being ultra fine, ultra smooth, and ultra soft, making it ideal to almost imperceptibly correct pesky lines around the mouth, aka “smokers” lines, or for those who want a very natural lip rejuvenating, smoothing effect. Imagine wearing the best lip gloss 24-7. It is not meant for significant lip fullness, which is better achieved with Vollure, Juvederm Ultra, or Restylane.
Volbella is best used for:
- Lip smoothing or a“glossing” effect on the lips.
- Make vertical lip “smoker’s lines” or “lipstick lines” disappear
- Rehydrate crinkly lips
- Define the cupid’s bow or the M portion of the upper lip
- Fill pesky etched lines including horizontal forehead lines, lines between the brows, and soften undereye hollows

How is the Vycross Fillers (Voluma, Volux, Volbella, Vollure) different than Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus?
The Juvederm Vycross fillers are a little newer but have quickly become the post popular fillers on the market. They are uniquely crosslinked to last longer and may have less swelling. Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus are most classically used in the nasolabial folds and lips, and in these areas can give correction for a deeper wrinkle or fold.
Numbing creams, ice rollers, and vibrational distraction can be used before and during all filler procedures at The Derm Institute. Dr. Chiu will often employ a needle-less “microcannula” technique in more sensitive areas like around the eyes or the lips to minimize any discomfort or pain. Most clients find fillers comfortable procedures with minimal to no downtime. For those apprehensive to injections, Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide System is a great solution for pain and anxiety relief.
Results are immediately seen! There may be swelling or bruising for 2-5 days after the procedure. Redness in the areas treated can last a few hours on the day in more sensitive individuals, but tinted moisturizers can typically cover it up!
Duration of treatment results depends on the product used and area injected, but 12-24 months is typical for these fillers.
Very very rarely are patients unsatisfied with their filler treatment at The Derm Institute because of Dr. Chiu’s unique, expert, careful, and natural aesthetic. However, our clinic is considered an expert destination, and sometimes we need to help patients who have had fillers injected poorly or too superficially by an outside clinic with inexperienced practitioners. Hyaluronic acid fillers including all Juvederm products, Restylane, and Belotero can be easily corrected and dissolved in less than 24 hours and your skin will return to baseline. Radiesse and Sculptra are not reversible, but Dr. Chiu can help you evaluate problematic cases and work with you to find the best resolution.
Gradually, your body will reabsorb the filler and your wrinkles and folds will return to baseline. It does not worsen any wrinkles with use. Some studies show there may even be a longer collagen boosting effect even with temporary use of these fillers.
