Juvéderm® Family of Fillers
Some of the world’s most popular and most studied cosmetic dermal fillers, the Juvéderm family of fillers offer exceptional treatments for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm fillers replenish lost volume in the skin and restore youthful contours to the face by lifting and supporting tissues non-surgically. The outcome is a younger, smoother look with fewer lines and wrinkles. Results are immediate and long-lasting.Click on the gallery for a larger view of before/after pictures.
What areas can be treated?
Juvéderm is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe folds and wrinkles on the face. It is extremely effective in treating the nasolabial folds, the lines that stretch from the the nose to the sides of the mouth. Juvederm Vollure™ is particularly effective in smoothing moderate to deep parentheses lines, folds and wrinkles. Dr. Gallacher treats with Juvederm Voluma™ to fill in hollowed-out cheeks, injecting the filler into selected areas of deep tissue along the cheeks. This adds volume to create a natural, youthful appearance.

Are there any side effects?
Juvéderm fillers are very safe products. The most common side effects of treatment are swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in and around the injection areas. These typically fade within a few days.
Do I need a skin test?
Juvéderm contains no animal products, unlike many of the substances that are found in other injectable cosmetic fillers. There is no need for pre-treatment skin tests.
What should I do if I develop a bruise?
We can eliminate the bruise with a single laser treatment, complimentary with the procedure. At least 70% of the bruise disappears within 24 hours. Please call our office; we will accommodate you for a same day appointment.
How long do the effects of a Juvéderm treatment last?
Depending on which Juvéderm filler or combination of fillers you use, the results of your treatments last at least six months, up to about 2 years. Results vary by individual and depend on many factors, such as the patient’s life, age, structure of the skin, the degree of perfection demanded and the practitioner’s injection technique.
Touch-up and follow-up treatments will make the improvements of Juvéderm last longer. Most patients choose to have a touch-up treatment within six months to a year of the original injection(s).
