Juvéderm™ is the latest dermal filler advance from Allergan Inc. Juvéderm™ is a “next generation” smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler offering a natural look/feel and long-lasting results for up to six months or longer. Juvéderm™ dermal filler lasts long because it’s the only dermal filler currently available with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a special formulation process. This process creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating smooth, natural looks.
All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers use a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be visibly seen as opposed to the smoother formulation used in Juvéderm™. The smooth consistency of Juvéderm™ dermal filler also may help to minimize the discomfort that can sometimes occur during the injection procedure.

Juvéderm™ injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is produced through HYLACROSS™ technology creating a high degree of cross-linking and promoting duration for up to 6 months or longer. HYLACROSS™ technology results in a smooth consistency gel, which is a primary factor in the long-lasting, smooth, natural look and feel that is a hallmark of Juvéderm™ wrinkle reduction.
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next generation” hyaluronic acid dermal filler that provides volume and is used to treat wrinkles and folds resulting from a loss of volume beneath the surface of the skin such as perioral lines and nasolabial folds (lines around your mouth and nose). Juvéderm™ restores your skin’s volume for a smooth, natural look and feel. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a filler. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes muscle activity and is used to treat moderate to severe lines caused by the dominant frown muscles between the eyebrows (the glabellar area).
Our physician eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel into your skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures). Juvéderm™ temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
Juvéderm™ injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 6 months
The injection process takes about 15 to 30 minutes. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with our physician prior to treatment.
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency gel of Juvéderm™ allows our physician to administer it easily and smoothly. Juvéderm™ is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort.
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injections site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection.
Yes. In fact, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven its safety and effectiveness in persons of color. Studies with Juvéderm™ showed no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.
It is very common for patients to combine Juvéderm™ with other aesthetic procedures such as Botox® injections, FotoFacial™ RF,Refirme™ skin tightening, and microdermabrasion . Treatment combinations and options are presented to you at the time of your complimentary consult.
