Juvéderm, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler used to ease and erase nasolabial folds and medium-to-deeper facial wrinkles. Botox/Dysport can handle lighter wrinkles; for situations where more powerful non-surgical rejuvenation is called for, or for situations where an increase in facial volume is needed, Juvéderm/Restylane is an excellent choice. It can also add volume to the lips.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body that aids in the maintenance of collagen and elastin proteins. As a person ages, the amount of hyaluronic acid in their body decreases. Injection can take around 15 minutes. Juvéderm or restylane absorbs into the patient’s system after up to six month to a year; additional treatments can extend this period.
