Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler which uses a hyaluronic gel to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used for the augmentation of the lips and cheeks. The hyaluronic gel that Juvederm uses is based on the hyaluronic fluid that can be found naturally within our bodies. Hyaluronic fluid (and thus the gel) works by being injected and then retaining water at the injection site, which allows it to support and cushion the body’s collagen and elastin, both of which are important proteins for ensuring that the skin is firm and elastic. This gives the skin more volume and makes it look more smooth overall. These results usually last for about nine months to one year, which is when the hyaluronic gel usually breaks down. At this point, further Juvederm injections can be scheduled so that the skin retains its firmer and smoother texture for longer.
Restylane is a similar dermal filler to Juvederm as it is also comprised of a hyaluronic gel and used to correct facial wrinkles and folds. It is typically produced in a sterile, laboratory environment using bacteria, which makes it a more suitable dermal filler for patients with common allergies. Restylane works by being injected beneath the skin’s surface and then integrating itself into the skin tissue. This allows it to help the skin to maintain volume. Results from Restylane treatment can often be seen immediately after the treatment has finished, and they tend to last up to six months, with some patients being able to see continued results even beyond this point, depending on where the site of injection is.
