Lift, plump, smooth – and enjoy natural-looking results that last with Juvederm at our NYC medical spa.
Juvederm is a filler or sterile gel developed using the Hylacross technology to allow for a smoother, malleable gel. The gel is made of hyaluronic acid.
The word “acid” may sound intimidating, but hyaluronic acid is not harsh or damaging at all. In fact, it’s the exact opposite.
Hyaluronic Acid in Juvederm
Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in the skin. It works by holding in water at the injection site, acting as a cushioning agent. Since the acid in Juvederm is developed through biosynthesis, you don’t need to take an allergy test prior to the FDA-approved treatment. They do not contain animal or human DNA, and have the best safety profile compared to other fillers.
Each product in our NYC Juvederm collection adds lifts, plumps, and smoothens different areas of the face, including the cheeks, lips, and parenthesis lines.
How Long Does Juvederm Last?
Juvederm provides six to eight months of correction for moderate wrinkles, such nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lip enhancement, and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Juvederm vs. Other Dermal Fillers
There are a number of available dermal fillers on the market, but none of them have the safety profile and the consistency of the results of Juvederm, especially when administered by NYC’s very own Dr. Leslie Gerstman.

Juvederm incorporates a revolutionary formula especially designed to be bioidentical to the hyaluronic acid found in the skin. Consequently, you don’t need to have an allergy test done prior to the procedure.
Most of our patients report seeing results immediately after the Juvederm treatment. The good news is that this dermal filler has been clinically proven to last up to twelve months with just one treatment. Still, depending on your preferences, it is possible that you may need more than one treatment before achieving the desired look. Check out our Juvederm before and after photos to see what kind of results others have experienced.
In most cases, the procedure doesn’t involve any downtime so you can go back to your daily routine in less than 24 hours. Nonetheless, patients with very sensitive skin can experience some mild side effects, like swelling or redness at the injection site. However, these adverse reactions will subside in a couple of days.
The dermal filler is mainly used to correct skin imperfections and aging signs present on the facial area. We want to mention that, from our experience, Juvederm has proven highly effective in treating static lines that are normally visible when your face is motionless. Nonetheless, it does an equally great job reducing the visibility of wrinkles and other lines. In addition, because it restores facial volumes, it is considered the very best non-surgical facelift option.
Juvederm is an FDA approved dermal filler made of a naturally occurring sugar compound found in the skin called hyaluronic acid. When the HA is combined with water, it transforms into a gel that acts on restoring volume, and smoothening out lines and wrinkles. On a side note, this dermal filler also constitutes a great lip enhancement option.
Unlike other HA-based dermal fillers, Juvederm doesn’t have a granular consistency. In fact, the product has been designed to have a gel-like consistency so it can spread more evenly and naturally under the skin.
This dermal filler can be safely used for all skin types. We want to underline that Juvederm doesn’t present any risk of hyperpigmentation and hence, it constitutes the first filler suitable for patients with dark toned complexions.
Besides water and HA, Juvederm also includes a small dose of lidocaine for enhanced patient comfort. However, Dr. Gerstman also applies a topical anesthetic at the treatment site. The entire procedure can take between 15 minutes and one hour, usually depending on the area you want to correct.
