Restylane is a group of dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a synthetic copy of the hyaluronic acid that your body makes naturally. Your hyaluronic acid levels start to decrease gradually around the age of 30, and over time, this leaves you with reduced volume in different areas like your facial folds (smile lines), cheeks, and lips.
Each Restylane formula is made for a particular part of your face. Your Kentucky Skin Cancer Center provider can explain which type of Restylane suits your needs the best. Restylane generally lasts from 6-18 months, depending on the exact formula and where it’s injected in your face.
Juvéderm, like Restylane, is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can add volume to facial folds, lips, and cheeks. Juvéderm has multiple formulas, each intended for a specific part of the face. Your Kentucky Skin Cancer Center provider can recommend the ideal formula or formula combination for your concerns.
If needed, you can combine Juvéderm and Restylane to get ideal results. Juvéderm typically lasts from 12-24 months, depending on the particular formula and where it’s injected in your face.
The results are instant. You may experience some mild swelling, redness, and bruising for the first few days or so, but that typically goes away fast. Once swelling dissipates, you’ll have an impressive volume enhancement that lasts for months.
Not at all. Most patients find dermal filler treatment at the Kentucky Skin Cancer Center to be virtually painless. Your provider preps your skin by applying a topical anesthetic in most cases, and most dermal filler formulas include lidocaine, which numbs your skin at the same time that it places the filler.
Yes, Botox and dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane work together quite well. Dermal fillers address the volume-related problems, while Botox or Dysport® can treat the wrinkles derived from muscle movement. You can even have dermal fillers and Botox or Dysport during the same appointment.
