Juvéderm and Restylane Q & A
What are Juvéderm® and Restylane®
Juvéderm® and Restylane® are dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid. When Juvéderm or Restylane are injected into the deeper layers of your skin, it makes the surface of your skin appear fuller, firmer, and more youthful.
How does Juvéderm and Restylane work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found throughout your body. It gives your skin its strength and elasticity, and the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin declines as you age.
Juvéderm® and Restylane® dermal fillers both use a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid that glides effortlessly into your skin when injected. Fillers can restore the volume and tone your skin had in your youth, without surgery or downtime.
Which areas can be rejuvenated with Juvéderm and Restylane injections?
Juvéderm® and Restylane® offer natural-looking results that don’t affect your ability to make normal facial expressions. Juvéderm and Restylane can treat the following areas, adding youthful volume, decreasing lines and wrinkles, and adding contouring to the face:
Nasolabial folds (lines surrounding nose and lip areas)
Creases surrounding the mouth (smile lines)
Hollow, sunken cheeks
Chin and jawline
Restylane is also effective in improving skin volume and wrinkles on the hands.
Do dermal filler injections hurt?
Juvéderm and Restylane products contain a numbing solution to keep you comfortable during your procedure. Depending on the area you're having treated and other factors, your injections take between 15-60 minutes.
Most patients find the process tolerable. Your experienced provider also applies a topical numbing cream before beginning your procedure, to improve your comfort during the procedure.
Are Juvéderm and Restylane injections safe, and is there any downtime?
Juvéderm® and Restylane® dermal fillers are both FDA approved for cosmetic use and are considered safe, effective treatments.
Juvéderm® and Restylane® treatments don’t require any downtime. Some patients can experience bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site areas, though most patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Your expert at Dr. Alexis Integrative Health may recommend that you avoid strenuous exertion or direct exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours following your treatment.
How long will my results last?
You should see an immediate improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and skin volume right after your appointment with Juvéderm or Restylane. Depending on the type of filler, location of your injections, and other individual factors, your results can last between six months to two years.
During your initial consultation at Dr. Alexis Integrative Health, your aesthetic specialist discusses your options with you in detail, so you can choose the treatment that best meets your needs.
