Recently approved by the FDA, Juvederm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
JUVEDERM™ New York 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 may be visibly seen as opposed to the smoother formulation used in JUVEDERM™.*
The smooth consistency of JUVEDERM™ dermal filler also may help to minimize the discomfort that can sometimes occur during the injection procedure. In addition, Juvederm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.*
Call our office to schedule complementary consultation with Dr. Yagudin to discuss if Juvederm™ lip augmentation/enhancement is right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions

Nose job without surgery using Juvederm injections
What is Juvéderm™ indicated for?
Juvederm™ Ultra and Juvederm™ Ultra Plus injectable gels are 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).*
Why does Juvéderm™ come in two formulations?
Juvederm™ injectable gel is available in two formulations to allow your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm™ Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm™ Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. *
How is Juvéderm™ injectable gel different from BOTOX® Cosmetic?*
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is“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). This allows the two vertical lines between the brows, often referred to as the “11,” to temporarily diminish for a smoother appearance. For important safety information about BOTOX® Cosmetic, see below.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. In addition to its use as an aesthetic treatment, hyaluronic acid has also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair.*
What is cross-linked hyaluronic acid?
“Uncross-linked” hyaluronic acid in its natural form is in a liquid state. “Cross-linking” is the process through which hyaluronic acid is made into a gel product that can be injected into the skin for long-lasting results.*
How is Juvéderm™ injectable gel used in treatment?
Your healthcare provider eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel into the 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). It is also used for lip augmentation. Juvéderm™ temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.*
What will treatment with Juvéderm™ injectable gel accomplish?
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. *
Is treatment with Juvéderm™ injectable gel painful?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. Juvéderm™'’s smooth consistency gel allows your doctor to administer it easily and smoothly. And, Juvéderm™ is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Your doctor may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort. *
How long does treatment usually take?
The injection process takes only about 15 minutes. You'll also need to allow time to consult with your doctor prior to treatment.*
Does the correction last forever?
No. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.*
How long do results last?
Juvéderm™'s unique formulation provides results that last up to 6 months or longer.*
What are the possible side effects of Juvéderm™ injectable gel?*
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.
Can people with different skin tones/colors be treated with Juvéderm™?*
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.
Juvéderm™ Ultra and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus are indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). As off label it is used for lip augmentation. Side effects were usually mild to moderate lasting 7 days or less and included temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps.
