Juvéderm® and Restylane®
Modern injectable fillers have revolutionized the treatment of facial aging. Juvederm and Restylane products are used to add volume and fullness to the skin, enhance lips, correct lines and wrinkles, and fill-out the cheeks. Fillers are used to treat patients of all ages. In some, fillers are used to enhance a feature of a youthful face, like the lips. In others, fillers are used to treat signs of aging, like deep wrinkles and creases. In many cases, fillers are used to rejuvenate the face beautifully and postpone the need for facial cosmetic surgery.
At Esprit Cosmetic Surgeons our favorite products are all made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. We choose Juvederm and Restylane hyaluronic acid fillers because of their outstanding safety profiles. As a natural constituent of our skin, hyaluronic acid fillers are tremendously safe and effective. Each filler contains the anesthetic lidocaine, for a comfortable injection experience.
There are many different formulations of these fillers which vary in softness, firmness, pliability and feel. Both Juvederm and Restylane come in several different formulations. Each formulation is customized by changing the linking of the hyaluronic acid molecules, particle size, and supporting gel. The brand and type of filler used is carefully selected based the location of injection and your aesthetic goals. In the lips, we use fillers that create volume but remain soft and pliable. In the creases between the nose and the lips, we use a filler that is firm enough plump the skin outward. In the cheeks, where the goal is to fill and lift (like a solid cheek implant) we use a firm filler near the cheekbones.
