Juvéderm and Restylane

Beauty ZenAre you looking for a non-surgical solution that will leave you looking younger and more attractive? Unfortunately as we age, gravity, repeated movements, and time can take a toll on the skin—especially the skin on the face and neck. If lost volume or wrinkles are making you look younger than you feel, there are a few non-invasive options available.

 

Botox is probably the most common tool for treating wrinkles, but it isn’t the only option. Botox is an excellent tool for treating wrinkles on the forehead and brow, but in some situations, dermal fillers provide better results for the lower sections of the face. Dermal fillers are often used to treat lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

 

Dermal fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they can also be used to give your face a more youthful contour. As people age, their face often loses volume, which can make the cheeks look sunken or make your face look older.

 

Two of the best dermal fillers include Juvéderm and Restylane. Keep reading to learn more.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid filler that is designed to treat facial folds and wrinkles.  The FDA approved Juvéderm and its family of products (which include Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus in 2006.

 

Juvederm can be used to restore volume to the cheeks, smooth the hands, or reduce the appearance of lines on the face.

 

The majority of patients have results that last for up to 6 months, and in some cases the results last even longer.

Restylane

Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler that was specifically created to treat moderate lines on the face. It is an excellent tool for treating marionette lines, smile lines, frown lines, and other wrinkles and folds in the lower section of the face.

 

Restylane has also been approved by the FDA, so it is a safe and trusted option for treating wrinkles.

 

Both Juvéderm and Restylane can provide excellent results that will improve your appearance and boost your confidence. If you’re interested in a non-surgical way to look younger, contact Sahara Medical Institute for a consultation.
