Basics Juvéderm Volift is the new kid on the filler block.

Details Vital ingredients have been cleverly crafted into a far shorter chain, so it can be injected with a much smaller needle than previous fillers. Primarily used to treat nasolabial lines, those furrows that run from the side of nose to the corners of the mouth, it can also help contour saggy jaws and lift a heavy-set brow.

Time frame Lasts up to a year.

"With JuvédermUltra I was very impressed especially since my husband had no idea what procedure I had! It was painless and very effective."

“ Over the years Dr. Rakus has kept me going - I don’t know what I would do without her! Part of her charisma is her cool, confident and quiet approach to every treatment I have had and, as a mark of the trust I place in her I am having a Thermage treatment today."

"I would like to highly recommend Dr Rakus’s Fraxel treatment. I have had a course of 6 sessions over the past 2 years and have found the results to be absolutely amazing. My skin texture is very smooth and soft plus the small fine lines around my eyes and mouth have almost disappeared. I would highly recommend this treatment!"

"I'm 44 now. My friends are always asking what I do to keep my skin such good shape and why I don't have any wrinkles. I tell them I've been going to Dr Rakus for 10 years. Even those who were formally against having anything done - ever - have now asked me for her number!"

What Is Juvéderm Smile Injectable Gel?

As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm Ultra injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen!

Juvederm Smile-Dr Rita RakusJuvéderm Smile is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvéderm Smile is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Juvéderm Smile gel is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, for example your “smile lines” (nasolabial folds).

juJuvéderm Smile provides a smooth, natural look and feel, so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm Smile compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.

  • Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm Smile injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred Juvéderm Smile!
  • Juvéderm Smile injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of colour.

Immediate Results

With Juvéderm Smile the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate and recovery or downtime is minimal.

Benefits of Juvéderm Injectable Gel

juHyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvéderm Smile injectable gel offer a safe and effective non-surgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. In fact, they are the fastest growing non-surgical aesthetic procedure in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. But all dermal fillers are not the same!

Choosing JUVÉDERM injectable gel makes a difference:

  • Juvéderm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Our unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel.
    Only Juvéderm Smile is so smooth - other hyaluronic acid fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels.
  • A "next-generation" filler: Juvéderm Smile 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.
  • Proven safety and effectiveness: Juvéderm Smile injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler proven safe and effective in persons of colour.
  • Quick and easy procedure: Juvéderm Smile injectable gel is a non-surgical physician-administered treatment that requires no allergy skin test and minimal recovery or downtime.
  • Personalized treatment: Juvéderm Smile injectable gel is available in two formulations
    • Juvéderm Smile for versatility in contouring and volumising facial wrinkles and folds, and
    • Juvéderm Smile Plus, a more robust formulation for volumising and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
    This allows your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.

"After 38 years of mental abuse, I had finally found the courage to leave my marriage. My self-esteem was non existent. I read an article in Tatler magazine about Dr Rita Rakus and decided I would try Botox® and Restylane. The results have been super. I am now happy to face the world on my own, feeling confident and self assured. I have since had treatments to take away fat pouches from my chin. This has also been a great success. Thank you, Dr Rita Rakus".

"I knew I wanted to have some work done, but I wanted to know I was in good hands. I sought impartial advice and met with Wendy Lewis, the New York aesthetic consultant. She recommended Dr Rakus - she was right. I know I'm in safe hands and my treatments have been effective without side effects and have drawn many compliments".
