JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel

Dr. Poulter uses a dermal filler called JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel, which is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as:

  • Smile lines or nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Forehead furrows

JUVÉDERM is also well suited for enhancing the lower eyelids by filling tear troughs and augmenting thin or wrinkled lips. Dr. Poulter’s extensive experience and training in facial rejuvenation gives him added insight into the best usage of dermal fillers to create beautiful, natural looking results.

VOLUMA® XC

VOLUMA XC is an innovative filler that’s used to add structural support to the midface, improving many remote areas such as lateral smile lines, nasolabial folds, and even jowls. It is excellent for chin augmentation and crating a stronger jawline to camouflage evolving jowls. This FDA-approved product uses the same active ingredient as JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel, and Dr. Poulter can administer it at the same time as JUVÉDERM for a more complete improvement.

VOLBELLA®

VOLBELLA provides subtle volume for filling vertical lip lines as well as soft hydration, filling the lips and other areas of fine lines. VOLBELLA results last for up to a year.

VOLLURE®

VOLLURE is a multipurpose filler – it’s soft, but holds improvement for up to 1 1/2 years. It’s excellent for superficial-to-medium depth wrinkles and lip enhancement.

What Is It and How Does It Work?

These injctables are smooth-consistency gel fillers composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid — a substance that mimics the body’s own hyaluronic acid — which adds volume and hydration to the skin. Because the gel is biocompatible and biodegradable, it requires no allergy testing, and will be harmlessly absorbed and eliminated by the body over time.

About the Procedure

Dr. Poulter injects the filler through a tiny needle and eases it under the skin to instantly restore volume and smooth wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM products come pre-mixed with lidocaine, a fast-acting anesthetic, for a more comfortable procedure. The injection process takes only a few minutes, and patients can return immediately to normal activities, experiencing only slight redness and swelling at the injection sites*. Results from JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel can last up to a year, while those of VOLUMA XC can last for up to 2 years*. Most patients report best results with regular touch-ups*. For a more complete facial rejuvenation, many patients opt to combine their dermal filler treatments with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
