The injectable gel filler, is a “next generation” dermal filler that has been FDA-approved. Juvederm Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. As a non-surgical procedure, Juvederm Injectable Gel is gently eased under the skin into the mid to deep dermis of the face to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Who is a good candidate for treatment with Juvederm?

  • Seeks relief from fine lines, wrinkles, folds, creases and furrows
  • Has reasonable expectations for improvement rather than perfection
  • Prefers non-invasive injectables to facial surgery
  • Is looking to replace dwindling facial volume

Immediate Changes

Short Treatment Time

Because Juvederm is non-surgical and non-invasive, you can undergo your treatment over your lunch break, returning to regularly scheduled activities right away.

Another Juvederm Injectable Gel advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which may provide a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. According to Dr. Gardenier, another advantage to using Juvederm Injectable Gel is it may last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months, if you have follow-up treatment at our Portland, Maine office a few weeks after the first treatment.
