JUVEDERM & RESTYLANE DERMAL FILLERS

Juvederm and Restylane are both FDA approved cosmetic fillers to be used to add and restore volume. 

WHAT ARE FILLERS & HOW DO THEY WORK?

Dermal fillers are modified forms of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural occurring substance in the skin. The FDA has approved dermal fillers for uses such as lip and cheek augmentation in patients over the age of 21, and the correction of contour deficiencies, such as wrinkles and acne scars. The FDA has also approved fillers for hand augmentation, which increase the volume of the back of the hands. 

Fillers are injected in the skin to help plump, enhance, and add volume to give a more youthful appearance. The  Juvederm/Restylane collections of fillers provide results that are long-lasting and natural looking. Most people use a combination of dermal fillers and Botox treatments to restore a more youthful appearance. 

FILLER GUIDE

​During your consultation your health care provider will determine what filler would be best for your desired goals. 

  • UVÉDERM® XC: corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the parentheses lines or "smile lines" around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, which may give the appearance of a smoother surface.

  • JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC: is an injectable gel that temporarily adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips—in adults over the age of 21. It's is also approved for smoothing and correcting moderate to severe parentheses lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth), in adults.

  • JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC: is designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area.

  • JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC: is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, including the "parentheses lines" around the nose and mouth.

  • JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC: injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called "lipstick lines" in adults over the age of 21.

  • RESTYLANE®: can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used
    for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.

  • RESTYLANE® SILK: is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.

  • RESTYLANE® LYFT: is a safe, effective and dissolvable HA filler. Lyft is used to add natural-looking volume in your cheeks and hands. 

  • RESTYLANE® DEFYNE: helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines).

  • RESTYLANE® REFYNE: is designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions.

HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?

The great thing about dermal fillers is that results are instant! You will see immediate improvement in the treated area. Most people also experience moderate swelling, so please allow 2 weeks to pass before booking a "touch-up" treatment. 

HOW LONG DO FILLER RESULTS LAST?

Results may last from six months to two years depending on the area treated and the producted used. 

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROCEDURE LIKE?

Your aesthetic healthcare provider will take your medical history and then the doctor will discuss your areas of concern and provide a facial analysis. You are involved every step of the way and our goal is to achieve your desired outcome. Depending on the area being treated a topical numbing cream may be applied for 30 minutes before treatment. We also provide dental blocks if needed for lip augmentation. Actual treatment with filler can take anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T LIKE MY FILLER?

The main advantage of using HA fillers like Juvederm/Restylane is that both are reversible. You can return to your pre-filler appearance if you don't like the results. 

We also provide "dissolving" of HA fillers injected by other health care providers should you not like the results.
