We all want to keep looking youthful and radiant regardless of our age, but which cosmetic treatments can best help us accomplish that goal? When it comes to wiping away facial wrinkles and boosting lost volume in your cheeks, Juvederm and Restylane are two ideal choices. These hyaluronic acid fillers deliver results immediately and last for many months or even years before another treatment is needed!
The Juvederm Family of Fillers: Options For Every Aesthetic Need
Juvederm is available in variations including Voluma, Ultra, Ultra Plus, Volbella, and Vollure. Each filler is specifically formulated to achieve a specific cosmetic goal.
Juvederm Voluma, for example, corrects age-related volume loss in the cheeks with injections of hyaluronic acid gel into the apex, apple, and hollow of each cheek. Results appear immediately and last as long as two years! Juvederm Vollure, meanwhile, is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler using Vycross technology to be FDA approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for up to 18 months. Vollure quickly eliminates bothersome nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Juvederm Volbella, on the other hand, is FDA-approved specifically for lip augmentation and the correction of vertical lip lines. Juvederm Ultra is best to tackle minor wrinkles that don’t require dramatic correction because it is formulated with finer, smaller molecules of hyaluronic acid. Ultra is also cleared to add subtle fullness to fine lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus is similar, but its thicker and more stable formula is more appropriate for use in deeper wrinkles.
Restylane: Volume Where You Need It Most
Like Juvederm, Restylane is available in many different varieties. Restylane Refyne and Defyne also offer exciting anti-aging abilities. They both target nasolabial folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane Refyne is flexible and delicate, so it is the best product to resolve moderate nasolabial folds. Restylane Defyne, on the other hand, is an excellent choice for deep and severe facial folds, since its hyaluronic crosslinks are sturdier and less flexible.
Restylane also offers a product to enhance the lips subtly called Restylane Silk, as well as a product to add lift and volume to the cheeks called Restylane Lyft. The hyaluronic acid particles used in each product are the perfect size to produce subtle yet attractive results.
