Dermal fillers have become the second most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment behind Botox. And, if you’re at all familiar with dermal fillers or are in the market for a dermal filler treatment, you’re likely familiar with two of the most popular dermal fillers, Restylane and Juvederm. What’s the difference between the two?
Restylane and Juvederm are both hyaluronic acid fillers
Restylane and Juvederm are dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. As we age, hyaluronic acid in our bodies can decrease, leaving a less full appearance and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers like Houston Juvederm help to fill in these lines and wrinkles and add volume to the face. Hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent and can also be dissolved with an enzyme referred to as hyaluronidase.
Juvederm can have a longer efficacy when compared to Restylane
When considering Restylane vs. Juvederm, the fillers in each line are made with different technologies that create a different molecular structure. The fillers in the Juvederm line are known to last longer (anywhere from six months up to two years) when compared to the fillers in the Restylane line. The length each filler lasts is dependent upon the filler used, the area being treated, the amount of filler used, and an individual’s body chemistry.
When deciding which filler is best for you, work with a professional injector at a Houston MedSpa who knows the ins and outs of Restylane vs. Juvederm and how each works within the skin.
