Restylane vs. Juvederm

Restylane vs. Juvederm Beverly Hills Med Spa | Los Angeles CA Medical 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.

Biocompatible Treatments

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.

Key Functions

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.

Need for Juvederm
Juvederm cosmetic filler treatment is designed to restore natural facial contour, and remove or reduce unwanted wrinkles and lines from the face. Sometimes the treatment may also be applied effectively to augment the lips. At Motykie Medical Spa, patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations may receive this treatment for the following purposes:

  •       Smooth lines around the mouth and nose and minimize nasolabial folds.
  •       Enhance the appearance and shape of lips.
  •       Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes.
  •       Minimize laugh lines.
  •       Add volume to the cheeks to improve the facial contour.

Juvederm is one of the effective solutions to treat static facial lines that continue to show even when the face is still and expressionless. Softer and subtle appearance of lips is also possible with this unique injectable gel treatment.
How does it Work?
Juvederm injectable treatment can be received as an outpatient procedure at a medspa that is qualified and equipped to provide such solutions. The treatment provider will inject the Juvederm gel-based filler directly into the targeted area of the face. Very fine needles will be used for the purpose.
The Juvederm gel will travel to the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate the natural production of collagen. The gel will also make the skin fuller almost instantly by adding volume to the depleted areas of the face. The wrinkles and folds that are caused due to loss of volume will get smoothed out quite naturally.
Biocompatible Treatment
Juvederm filler gel is based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the human body. This makes the treatment highly biocompatible, unlike various animal-based dermal fillers available today. Juvederm is a highly safe treatment for most people, and no specific allergy tests are required prior to receiving this treatment.
Hyaluronic acid promotes the production of natural collagen and causes replenishment of lost skin volume gradually. Therefore, people who have experience loss of skin elasticity and volume due to aging or other factors can benefit from Juvederm treatment.
Results and Recovery
Juvederm treatment does not involve any downtime because there are no incisions or other invasive techniques involved. The outcome with this FDA-approved treatment is safe and predictable as long as the treatment is provided by a qualified expert with experience in dermal filler injections. The results are visible almost instantly, but the full effects will continue to develop over the next few days and weeks after the treatment. The results are sustainable for a period of up to one year or even more in certain cases.

Dermal filler injections are an increasingly popular, non-surgical option to reduce the signs of aging from the face. Facial skin may develop wrinkles and lose elasticity and volume due to depletion of natural collagen. This may occur due to aging, sun damage, environmental exposure, genetic factors, medications or other reasons.
Motykie Medical Spa provides FDA approved cosmetic filler treatments that are based on hyaluronic acid. These include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane, and Perlane. Hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen beneath the skin and acts as a filler to add volume to the facial skin and reduce wrinkles and lines.


Laser is a minimally invasive treatment for many skin related issues such as skin rejuvenation, unwanted hair removal and spider vein removal. Motykie medspa is equipped to provide advanced laser treatments such as Laser Skin Resurfacing and IPL Photo Rejuvenation, apart from spider vein treatment, and hair removal. Laser cosmetic treatments are based on the principle that darker pigmented tissue will absorb maximum light energy. This allows the targeted tissue points to be destroyed without causing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.


CoolSculpting is an innovative technique that freezes away unwanted fat cells, without causing collateral damage. The treatment approach does not involve invasive or heating techniques, which makes the procedure simpler and more comfortable, and reduces the risk of any side effects.
