A dermal filler is a solution or gel, administered just below the skin by injection, to fix wrinkles or other depressions in the skin. Dermal fillers are particularly successful in treating nasolabial folds or “smile lines,” and for enhancing the lips. Results from dermal fillers generally last about six to twelve months.
The most commonly used dermal filler currently in use is Hyaluronic Acid.
We provide the most advanced, state-of-the-art formulations of this type of filler. These treatments can be performed without prior skin testing, are fairly painless, and provide instant results:

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler that is FDA approved for correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, with results lasting up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is an FDA approved injectable treatment that is found to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of fine vertical lines around the mouth.

JUVEDERM™ Injectable Gel – Hyaluronic Acid
HYALURONIC ACID a nontoxic polymer naturally found in human skin. It has the unique property of being hydrophilic: it bonds with water molecules in the body– and by doing so, over time, it is able to maintain fullness and bulk. The hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM™ Injectable Gel is non-animal-based, which gets rid of the risk of animal-based disease transmission and minimizes the possibility of allergic reaction. JUVEDERM, currently our most popular dermal filler, has the greatest concentration of hyaluronic acid offered among dermal fillers, and is fabricated by an innovative process that creates a distinctively smooth gel. It’s supplied in a range of solutions appropriate for a variety of conditions, incorporating deeper wrinkles or folds. Here’s a sample of the results of treating such folds with JUVEDERM™ Injectable Gel:
