Developing wrinkles and deep lines are unfortunately part of the inevitable part of growing older and facing stress in our everyday lives. You work hard to stay feeling as young as possible by eating the right foods and exercising on a regularly, but those troublesome wrinkles still appear. While you can’t prevent all the signs of aging, using injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are an amazing, painless way to uplift and rejuvenate your face.  Here, we briefly go over two of the most popular hyaluronic acid dermal fillers on the market: Juvederm and Restylane.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to correct folds and wrinkles in the face. By restoring facial volume, Juvederm meshes with the collagen present in your body, helping achieve greater facial symmetry. It’s used especially to treat the following:

  • Marionette lines above your upper lip
  • Nasolabial folds on the mouth’s corners
  • Cheek and jaw volume loss

Juvederm is a great option for both men and women, regardless of their race or ethnicity. To qualify for treatments with Juvederm, you must schedule a consultation so one of our medical professionals can assess your medical history and skin health.

The procedure with Juvederm is also painless and takes about half an hour to finish. We apply anesthesia and then apply the solution with a small needle. Side effects from Juvederm like redness and swelling normally dissipate within 48 hours of injection.

Restylane or Juvederm: Which One’s Right For Me?

We’ve gone through the basics of how each dermal filler provides long-lasting results for patients. When it comes to deciding which one you need most, it comes down to your individualized cosmetic and dermatological condition. We don’t prefer one or the other and sometimes use both to treat different kinds of wrinkles and creases.
1. Treatment Frequency
The effects of Restylane last for up to nine months before you’ll need another treatment. With Juvederm, you can expect results to last for 12 months, but there’s a greater hyaluronic acid concentration.
2. FDA Approval
Restylane was approved by the FDA back in 2003, while Juvederm is a newer dermal filler approved in 2006. Besides that, both treatments use NASHA gel fillers and provide similar results for patients.
3. Texture

Because of Restylane’s gel particles, patients find that Restylane has a rougher feel than Juvederm’s smoother solution. Juvederm is more suited for more delicate parts of the face like your lips, while Restylane does the job well for deeper wrinkles and creases.

Like with Juvederm, injecting Restylane is also a painless process. It’s injected into the skin in very small amounts with an ultrafine needle. We may also use numbing cream before treatment to minimize any potential discomfort during the procedure.
