Restylane® - Has been used by more than four million treatments in over seventy different countries, Restylane is a popular skin filler. It incorporates the use of hyaluronic acid to retain volume and restore fullness to the patient's skin and to help correct anywhere from light to moderate to severe folds and wrinkles on the patient's face. Restylane has also grown in popularioty for adding plumpness to the lips of individuals seeking a more full pair of lips.

As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This is what helps provide long-lasting results.

Restylane Treatment

Restylane is proven to deliver long-lasting results and studies have shown that the effects generally last about six months.

Restylane®:  Restylane® is used to smooth out folds and wrinkles by adding volume.  This quick (the procedure only takes a few minutes - with no down-time) nonsurgical procedue can make a tremendous difference to your appearance.

Restylane is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The injected gel produces natural volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. The results can be seen immediately. Treating wrinkles with Restylane is fast and safe and leaves no scars or other traces on the face. 

A Restylane wrinkle treatment is long-lasting but not permanent.  The length of time a treatment maintains its effect is very individual and depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, life-style and muscle activity, as well as the injection technique.

Juvéderm Treatment

Juvéderm™ - Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. Its smooth consistency helps instantly restore skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. It works especially well on "smile lines", also known as nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Like several other fillers listed on this page, Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps add volume and hydration.  Juvederm comes in two formulas, depending on the volume needed:

Juvéderm™ Ultra - provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds.

Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus - a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.

The injection process with Juvederm takes about 15-30 minutes, and results are immediate, although temporary redness or swelling around the injection site can occur for some patients. Typically, Juvederm is done twice a year for most patients.
