If you need a facial pick-me-up, a dermal filler is a great option for a rejuvenated appearance that is practically painless.
What are Restylane® and Juvéderm®?
These dermal fillers smooth skin and instantly alleviate wrinkles and lines by plumping and restoring the skin’s volume. They are FDA approved, and help users obtain a more youthful, fresh appearance without the recovery time and pain of surgery.
How do Restylane® and Juvéderm® Work?
Both Restylane® and Juvéderm® are composed of hyaluronic acid which is a natural acid found between cells in the human body. In short, it is what keeps skin looking youthful. Over time, the body’s natural levels of hyaluronic acid decrease, leaving the appearance of wrinkles and lines. This is where dermal fillers come in. Restylane® and Juvéderm® restore the hyaluronic acid to the skin, adding volume to the sunken layers and creating a smooth look.
Which One is Better?
Restylane® is comprised of hyaluronic acid in a flexible gel. It’s more cohesive, so it’s perfect for providing fullness to areas under the eyes and to build up sunken or gaunt areas of the face. This filler can last for several months.
Juvéderm® contains the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the aesthetic market. It is best for treating and smoothing lines and creases around the nose and mouth and can last for up to one year.
That being said, one is not necessarily better than the other. Restylane® and Juvéderm® are both beneficial and have their own advantages. At Knox Wellness, our experienced team will help guide you to the right treatment to achieve your desired results
