Add Volume to Your Beauty
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But with Juvederm injectable gel provided by our Jefferson City plastic surgery facility, you don’t have to just sit back and let it happen!
What is Juvederm?
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” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel – so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!
In fact, studies show superior results of Juvederm compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. And, almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvederm injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred Juvederm! 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.

If you’re interested in being treated with this nonsurgical physician-administered treatment option, you should know the advantages of choosing Juvederm injectable gel:
A “next-generation” filler: Juvederm is a “next-generation” non-animal dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in hydrating your skin and replenishing its natural volume. No allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment.
Advanced technology for long-lasting results: Juvederm injectable gel employs its unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows consistently and easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvederm is the only filler available with this smooth consistency gel formulation – other existing hyaluronic acid fillers are made of granular consistency gels.
Proven safety and effectiveness: Juvederm is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
Quick and easy procedure: Juvederm injectable gel is a nonsurgical physician-administered treatment that requires no allergy skin test and minimal recovery or downtime.
I just had my first Botox session yesterday…already I’m shocked and amazed. I didn’t realize how such a subtle change could be so drastic at the same time. Already I can see where lines have vanished in the middle of my fore head and my eyes have this wonderful ‘awake’ look. I was having trouble figuring out why I looked so tired all the time. Hearing people tell me “Wow, you look really tired!” was getting really annoying. I finally have those movie star eye brow arches that I have been trying to pluck to get. Little did I know it’s not just in the plucking! I can’t wait to see the rest of the results. I just couldn’t wait another day without thanking you.
Personalized treatment: Juvederm injectable gel is available in two formulations – Juvederm Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvederm Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows Dr. Howard to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.
