Juvederm / Restylane®
Juvederm / Restylane® are non-surgical facial fillers that can restore lost volume of skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a substance which occurs naturally in the skin, helping to provide the skin with fullness and elasticity. With time, the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin breaks down, resulting in lost volume that can lead to wrinkles and folds.
What does Juvederm / Restylane® do?
Juvederm / Restylane® are types of injectable facial fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid. Juvederm / Restylane® can improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is commonly used to treat smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds.
How Long is the Process?
Juvederm / Restylane® is administered during a simple, non-surgical treatment performed in the office setting. Treatment times are quick and may take as little as fifteen minutes. For maximum comfort, a topical or local anesthetic may be administered prior to treatment and a very fine needle is used to inject the product.
What to Expect After
Recovery after Juvederm / Restylane® treatment is minimal and most patients can enjoy an immediate return to their normal routine. Some redness, bruising or swelling may occur. These side effects typically fade within several days to a week. An ice pack may be applied to ease swelling and any discomfort that occurs. Sun exposure should be avoided until any side effects have subsided. The results of Juvederm / Restylane® may last up to six months or longer.
