Interested in JUVÉDERM Products?

JUVÉDERM is one of the biggest names in aesthetics, and JUVÉDERM products are among the most trusted and popular of all dermal fillers. The experienced Injectors at Mabrie Facial Institute can help you understand more about these related but different products and develop a personalized treatment plan just for you. People visit MFI from the peninsula (Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Mateo), as well as the East Bay and cities throughout California and the U.S. for JUVÉDERM.

About the JUVÉDERM Family of Products

Developed by the same company that created BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM products offer a smooth consistency and a natural look and feel when injected. Not only are they FDA-approved, they are approved for all skin types and colors.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the active ingredient in each of the products in the JUVÉDERM family. This is a naturally occurring substance that binds water to cells, bringing volume and hydration to the skin. This softens lines and shadows, restoring a more youthful, supple look to areas like the lips, cheeks, and lower face. JUVÉDERM offers several formulas—each pre-mixed with lidocaine for your comfort—designed to treat different concerns.

JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel

JUVÉDERM is a gel-like dermal filler used to diminish wrinkles by filling in underneath the skin, forming a strong support structure for facial skin just like you had when you were younger. This product is similar in composition to Restylane®.

JUVÉDERM is often used to minimize nasolabial folds, or the wrinkles commonly referred to as “parentheses” around the mouth. It can also be used to sculpt facial features like the cheeks and chin, reduce the appearance of scars, or to refine the nose during a nonsurgical nose job.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC

VOLUMA XC is an injectable gel filler that can restore volume to cheeks that look flat or sunken. As we age, facial skin, fat, and bones deteriorate, causing the cheeks and under eye area to wither. VOLUMA puts back the volume that time takes away, and creates a firm support structure for your skin, producing a lifted look that can take years off your face.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC uses a thicker formula of hyaluronic acid, which makes it more durable and appropriate for larger areas and deeper injection, such as the cheeks and the chin.

Our Injectors use VOLUMA XC on the cheekbones, as well as the hollows and apples of the cheeks, providing a look of youthful plumpness. They also use the injectable filler for chin augmentation, because its formulation holds up well in this area, refining a person’s profile without the need for surgical enhancement.

Additionally, VOLUMA XC is well suited for being combined with other dermal fillers and injections of BOTOX Cosmetic. Volume restoration is a key component of facial rejuvenation, so our Injectors are pleased to have VOLUMA XC’s lasting benefits as part of their toolkit.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is a crystal-clear gel formulated for use in the lips and the surrounding area. Our Injectors use this product for lip augmentation, to enhance the symmetry of the lips, and to correct perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines.” The small HA particles and smooth formulation of this product make it the ideal choice for lips that are soft and natural.

The XC in these JUVÉDERM products stands for “extra comfort” due to the local anesthetic they contain. The addition of lidocaine, along with our Injectors’ use of a microcannula, makes injections—even in the delicate lip area—much more comfortable for patients.

How Long Do JUVÉDERM Product Results Last?

Depending the treatment area, JUVÉDERM and VOLBELLA produce results that can last from 6 to 12 months.

When used to restore volume to the cheeks or chin, VOLUMA produces results that can last from 12 to 24 months. When used for a nonsurgical chin augmentation, results may last 15 to 24 months.

Are There Any Side Effects?

One of the advantages of using dermal fillers is that they are minimally invasive. The most common effects patients experience are minor concerns around the injection sites, including swelling, irritation, redness, and light bruising, which all usually resolve within 1 or 2 days.

Our Injectors also use blunt-tipped microcannulas, which produce less bleeding and bruising afterward and make the treatment more comfortable. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately. Read more about what to expect from your treatment.

I'm a Top 25 Most Loved Injector

Out of 2,000 nominees in the U.S., Dr. Mabrie was voted one of the Top 25 Most Loved Injectors for 2017 by the RealSelf community. Thanks to all our amazing patients for making him the only injector in the Bay Area to receive this honor.

What are the Differences Between Dermal Fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Our skin loses volume as we age. Dermal fillers are designed to replace the foundation under your skin and support sunken areas to smooth out skin, making it look young again.

BOTOX Cosmetic works on wrinkles called “dynamic wrinkles.” These lines and folds—most often on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes—are caused by repeated facial action. BOTOX Cosmetic injections relax the muscles causing these wrinkles, erasing the look of frown lines, worry lines, and crow’s feet.

JUVÉDERM FAQs

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes! FDA-approved dermal fillers have been safely in use for more than 20 years, with millions of treatments performed in the U.S. alone. While fillers are safe, treating some facial areas can be riskier than others.  Ultimately, your safety and results are determined by the skill, knowledge, and experience of your Injector. Learn more about the safety of dermal fillers in this blog post.


What’s a liquid facelift?

A liquid facelift or non surgical facelift is a comprehensive surgical alternative that uses dermal fillers for WOW-worthy facial rejuvenation results. At MFI, a liquid facelift is used to address under-eye bags, dark circles, nasolabial folds, a receding chin, and howling. We often add BOTOX Cosmetic to soften lines on the forehead.


Do dermal fillers ruin your face?

No! In fact, a look at our extensive photo gallery will prove that fillers are an excellent way to rejuvenate and contour your face without surgery. All our FDA-approved fillers are temporary, and will ultimately be broken down and eliminated harmlessly by the body over a period of 6 months to 2 years.


What’s the best dermal filler?

There are so many fillers and formulations, there’s no single “best” filler. In our many years of experience using fillers for rejuvenation and contouring, we’ve developed our favorites for different areas and different purposes. To help you understand these versatile products, we’ve put together the ultimate guide. We will discuss the best filler or fillers for your needs at your consultation.


Which filler is best for tear troughs?

At Mabrie Facial Institute, our filler of choice for the tear troughs is Restylane, but that’s only part of the story. Tear trough filler relies on support in the cheeks and midface, which is often created with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA or RADIESSE.

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

I really like the staff here however Dr. Mabrie has one of those egoic attitudes. He is good at his job and he knows it. However, he doesn't seem interested in his patients. I have been there several times and I just kind of deal with it. I just wish he acted like he cared about his clients.

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Mabrie for probably seven years and I look better than ever! I saw his online discussions of his techniques and decided, this is the doctor for me! I have not been disappointed and it's definitely worth my 2.5-3 hour drive to San Francisco to get my treatments. He and his entire staff are excellent!

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!
