Facial plastic surgery is no longer the only choice you have for facial rejuvenation. Restylane and Juvederm are non-invasive hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that work for both men and women. These can plump the skin and restore its supple, youthful appearance with minimal cost, recovery time, downtime, and risk.
Dermal fillers come in a gel form and are injected beneath the skin to smooth the skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Benefits of Juvéderm and Restylane Dermal Fillers in Boca Raton
Both Juvéderm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. They share similarities in the way they improve the quality and appearance of facial skin, giving them the following benefits:
- Fillers restore volume that has degenerated due to aging
- They are non-invasive procedures, meaning that no surgery is required
- They diminish lines, creases, and wrinkles in the skin
- Fillers are more cost-effective than surgery
- There is no recovery time or downtime
Your overall appearance is improved instantly by reducing deep or fine lines, lip and cheek thinning, and facial asymmetry.
Comparing Juvéderm and Restylane
Both dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid and treat wrinkles in adults. They both also include lidocaine, which is designed to reduce pain during the injections, making a separate topical anesthetic unnecessary.
Each filler brand has several distinct options to choose from. You can work closely with Dr. Farber and his team to decide which filler will best suit your needs.
Different types of Juvéderm injections are available, each intended for different areas of the face. Volbella is designed for the mouth and lip areas only, while Volumna can add volume to the cheeks. Vollure is used to treat the fine lines that may develop around your nose and mouth.
Like Juvederm, Restylane also offers specialized fillers. Kysse and Silk work wonderfully for the lips and mouth, while Lyft, Refyne, and Defyne all work on varying levels of wrinkles and lines. Restylane may also be used around the eyes and back of the hands to add volume painlessly.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm and Restylane?
Dr. Farber will go over any individual risk factors that could prevent you from receiving these dermal fillers, both of which are intended for adults older than 18 years of age. You may not be a good candidate for either of these dermal fillers if you:
- Are allergic to any of the key ingredients, including hyaluronic acid and lidocaine
- Have a history of multiple severe allergies
- Have a history of excessive scarring or have skin pigmentation disorders
- Are taking medications that can prolong bleeding or have a history of bleeding disorders
What Can I Expect in a Juvéderm or Restylane Treatment?
Each formula’s injections can take between 15 and 60 minutes for each session, which is typical for dermal fillers. You can leave and return to work or home immediately after your injections. You may have some mild tenderness or bruising, but this will dissipate quickly. We can also recommend over the counter medications and other helpful post-procedure tips.
