Juvederm™, which recently received FDA approval, is the next generation of hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm™ contains the highest concentration of non-animal based, highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. Juvederm™’s consistency is uniquely smooth – more like a viscous liquid than the gel consistency of most other hyaluronic acid fillers. The unique formulation of Juvederm™ seems to result in a longer duration of effect (around 7 to 9 months) as well as less bruising, pain and bumpiness, as compared to Restylane.

Dr. Rivkin uses Juvederm™ primarily to treat:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lip Augmentation
- Glabellar lines
Juvederm™ is his filler of choice for the Non Surgical Eye Lift™, where it is injected to fill the crease underneath the lower eyelid and eliminate dark circles under the eyes.
Juvederm™ is a new filler in the United States, but it has been in use throughout Europe for several years with excellent results. From the FDA studies, the European experience and, most importantly, his own experience with the product for the last 9 months, Dr. Rivkin sees an important role for Juvederm™ in his practice.
