What affects the cost of Juvéderm®?
The cost of a Juvéderm® treatment will be impacted by numerous factors, including, the actual cost of the Juvéderm®, the time of the provider performing the injection, the body area being treated, your desired results, your location, and supplies used during the procedure.
There are several variations of Juvéderm® that are approved to treat different areas of the body. The overview below can help familiarize you with the various products.
- Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm Vollure® XC are targeted to fine lines and wrinkles on the face; specifically, the smile lines or parentheses lines of the nose and mouth.
- Juvéderm Ultra® XC and Juvéderm Volbella® XC are used for lip augmentation for thin lips and reducing lipstick lines.
- Juvéderm Voluma® XC is used in cheek augmentation especially addressing concerns around the nasolabial folds.
It is important to remember that Juvéderm® is a temporary injectable. Desired results may come after one or several treatments, and all results can only be maintained with regular upkeep. For example, if your facial wrinkles procedure costs $400 and maintenance is needed every six months, your cost per year to maintain results will be $800.
Commonly, facilities and providers offer discounts, special offers, and/or rewards programs for regular Juvéderm® patients since most individuals choose to pursue maintenance sessions. Looking into these types of programs, financing options, and incentives in your area can help to mitigate costs.

Does insurance cover the cost of Juvéderm®?
Insurance coverage is always confusing, and, when it comes to health insurance and aesthetic medicine, things get even murkier. Fear not, we can help.
Prevailing wisdom states cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance. This is generally true, although certain cosmetic procedures providing medical benefits for documented conditions may be covered. Definitions from the American Medical Association (AMA) can help to further clarify this point:
- Cosmetic Surgery: Reshapes normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem.
- Reconstructive Surgery: Alterations to abnormal body structures caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease.
Juvéderm® is not a surgery. And, while it does have FDA approval for numerous cosmetic conditions, it does not have any medical indications (like, say, Botox® does). Suffice to say, your Juvéderm® procedure is not going to be covered by insurance.
Juvéderm® is a popular HA dermal filler used for rejuvenation across different parts of the face, including the cheek area, marionette lines, and smile creases, and it serves as both a facial filler and a collagen stimulator.

This cost guide can help you to have informative and productive conversations with possible providers to ensure you have a positive and beneficial cosmetic experience.
