Dermal Fillers FAQ

What is Juvederm?
Like Restylane, JUVEDERM is a gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.  JUVEDERM fills in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the folds running from the sides of the bottom of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth), achieving a smooth and natural look.
Like Restylane and Perlane it can also be used to eliminate under eyes circles, volumize your lips and your cheeks to give you a younger more youthful appearance.

How long does the results last?
Juvederm has FDA clearance to last up to one year with one treatment.  In our practice we find that typically Juvederm Ultra lasts up to six months while Juvederm Ultra Plus can last up to a year.  Longevity also depends on the area being treated.  Juvederm or Restylane can last only 3-6 months in lips.

How is Juvederm different from Restylane?
They are both made from hyaluronic acid (HA’s).  We find the results to be very similar. However, we love Juvederm Ultra in the lips as it does not swell as much as Restylane.  At the end of the day, it all depends on the clinician and what product they favor and are comfortable with.  We find the results and longevity to be the same.

Does Juvederm injections hurt?
Your injection experience should be very comfortable.  Now with the introduction of the new Juvederm with lidocane – i.e. Juvederm XC, no one should experience discomforting or pain.  Our clients especially love Juvederm XC in their lips as this is the most sensitive area to treat.  With the new Juvederm XC, the experience is much more relaxing.

How much does Juvederm cost?
Like Restylane, the price varies depending on the number of syringes you need and the type of product used to give you your ultimate result.  Typically, our average clients need 2 – 3 syringes of HA’s to get full correction.  Price can average around $750 to $500 per syringe.

What is Restylane?
Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

How will Restylane®  make me look younger?

In the hands of a skilled and experienced clinician, your face can be sculpted to fill in lines and creases for a natural and smooth transformation in less than 30 minutes.

How does Restylane work?
Restylane creates beauty with a gel based on a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. It gives natural volume in your skin to lift and produce new firmness, resulting in a healthy, vital appearance. Unlike bovine collagen which is derived from animals and requires an allergy test, Restylane® requires no pre-testing.
