Juvederm and Restylane both rank among the most sought-after non-surgical facial fillers to improve, uplift, and rejuvenate the facial appearance. A med spa provider will carefully evaluate the patient’s facial anatomy and their personal goals before recommending the most appropriate dermal filler injection.
The provider will discuss the pros and cons of various fillers and explain the common differences between Juvederm and Restylane to help the patient make an informed choice. Motykie Medical Spa provides both Juvederm and Restylane to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Juvederm and Restylane are versatile fillers that can be used with equal effect on both women and men who want to enhance their facial appearance. Lip augmentation can be achieved with both fillers, and reduction of fine lines around the mouth is also possible with them.
Facial shape and contours can be enhanced significantly with them at a qualified med spa. One of the key differences, however, is that aging lines below the eyes or tear trough area is treated more commonly with Restylane. The composition of molecules in Restylane makes it more suitable for treatment in this delicate area.
While both Juvederm and Restylane are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, the concentration of this ingredient is different between the two options. Hyaluronic acid exists along with collagen to make the face appear fuller, and also maintains the natural moisture levels of the skin.
Juvederm has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid as compared to Restylane. Therefore, for more severe or deep wrinkles and facial creases, Juvederm may be more effective in some cases. Results with Juvederm tend to last longer than those of Restylane. The facial appearance with Juvederm may be relatively smoother and more natural looking in some cases.
The texture of Juvederm and Restylane is significantly different from each other. While Juvederm is considered smooth in consistency and texture, Restylane is more granular. Some experts believe that Juvederm will have a lesser chance of leaving bumps during the application, but there is no scientific evidence to sustain this claim.
The smoothness of Juvederm may, however, make it easier to use when the treatment provider wants to address very fine lines. Juvederm is not an appropriate answer when the hollows beneath the eyes need to be treated because its smoothness will make it travel to the top of the cheek. Therefore, Restylane is a more cohesive gel to be used in areas under the eyes or other spots where fuller effect is needed.
The cohesion of Restylane may be a little higher than that of Juvederm. Therefore, if the provider needs to work with the material and mold it into a particular shape, it is easier to work with Restylane. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for both Restylane and Juvederm.
While Restylane effect will last for about six months, in case of Juvederm that results may last for anywhere between nine to 12 months.
