What Is JUVEDERM?
JUVÉDERM® is a family of FDA-approved dermal fillers. These popular dermal fillers offer a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option to address a variety of cosmetic concerns. They effectively provide subtle increases in volume.
These gels are formulated with a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is naturally produced by your body to ensure skin is supported and hydrated, but its production naturally declines over time. The synthetic forms are made to last longer.
What Types Are Available?
Dr. Kafka offers a range of JUVEDERM options in New York City to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, including:
- JUVÉDERM® ULTRA AND ULTRA PLUS – ULTRA is a multi-use filler which can be used to enhance the appearance of lips by may be used to plumping and balancing them.

What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
JUVEDERM injections are administered in the comfort of our Upper West Side office. There is minimal pain or discomfort associated with the process, but you may experience a slight pinching at the injection site. Treatment sessions are relatively short, but will ultimately depend on your unique treatment plan.
There is no set downtime associated with the process, and you should be able to resume your normal New York City daily activities. You may notice some minor bruising or swelling. However, most people enjoy results shortly after treatment. While the results will vary for each person, treatment area, and filler used, most people enjoy their results almost immediately, and the results may last for up to a few years with optimal treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective treatment option for most generally healthy adults. It is important to approach realistic goals and expectations for treatment. While these may serve as a good alternative for those who are uninterested in a surgical procedure, the results may be more subtle.
A personal consultation with Dr. Kafka can help you determine if JUVEDERM is right for you. She can help you develop your personalized treatment plan as well as select the specific type of this filler that may be best for you. When making any choices about cosmetic procedures, it is important to seek the opinion of a qualified medical professional, and Dr. Kafka is here for you.
