Restylane vs. Juvederm
As a person ages, the facial skin is the first to reveal the signs of aging in the form of lines, wrinkles, creases, loss of volume, and an overall saggy appearance of the skin. Facelift surgery is a proven solution for facial rejuvenation, but many patients are keen to avoid surgery and seek alternative non-surgical treatments. Facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are proven injectable treatments that are designed to reduce facial signs of aging.
Success with advanced, FDA approved dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can be achieved when the treatment is received from an expert at a reputed medspa. These injectable treatments require high precision to achieve the desired results in a targeted and safe manner. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides these injectables in a state of the art environment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas.
Both Restylane and Juvederm soft tissue fillers have hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient, which is a natural substance found in the human body. The function of hyaluronic acid is to hold the deeper layers of the skin together and prevent it from drooping. When this ingredient is injected directly into the deeper skin layers, it binds and stretches to fill out the wrinkle from inside. Sagging skin will firm up almost instantly with these treatments.
Hyaluronic acid is a completely biocompatible substance, which makes both Restylane and Juvederm as safe dermal fillers, without minimal risk of allergies. Therefore, Motykie Medical Spa recommends these fillers because of high safety and no requirement for prior allergy tests. The medspa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Both Restylane and Juvederm are highly popular and widely used dermal fillers to volumize the depleted areas of the face and reduce the impact of wrinkles and folds. These fillers are specifically designed to minimize or remove the appearance of nasolabial folds, which are the grooves between the nose and the lips.
These folds become more conspicuous as skin elasticity reduces due to aging, genetic factors, sun exposure or other reasons. Other areas of the face that can be treated effectively these injectable fillers include the creases between the corners of the mouth and the nose or marionette lines, frown lines on the forehead and between brows, and also lips.
Many researchers believe that the consistency of Restylane is firmer in comparison to that of Juvederm. Therefore, when it comes to treating deep lines on the face that require more support or lip augmentation, Restylane may be a better choice. On the other hand, Juvederm is considered to have smoother consistency, as against Restylane, which is a particulate or granular gel.
Importantly, the impact of Juvederm is longer lasting as compared to Restylane because it contains 35 percent more cross linked hyaluronic acid. A treatment with Restylane filler can usually last for up to six months, but the same treatment with Juvederm or Juvederm Ultra Plus may last for about nine months to a year.
