Juvéderm and Restylane are popular dermal fillers used to enhance facial features and reduce the signs of aging. Both Juvéderm and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, making them safe and well-tolerated by most individuals. These fillers can effectively smooth out wrinkles, add volume to the lips, and contour the face. Juvéderm and Restylane dermal fillers provide natural-looking results with minimal downtime, making them a popular choice for those seeking non-surgical cosmetic enhancements.
Dermal Filler Options
We will carefully select the appropriate injection sites and the best filler (or fillers) to achieve the results you want from your treatment. We may suggest combining fillers with injections of BOTOX, Dysport, Jeuveau Cosmetic for greater facial rejuvenation. Filler options include:
JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®: All of these popular wrinkle fillers are based on non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Injected under the skin’s surface, they provide a support structure and attract moisture molecules to hydrate the skin. While these products vary in their uses, which include smoothing wrinkles and sculpting lips, all are safe and provide long-lasting results.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC: Our Houston patients over age 21 who want to add or replace facial volume in the entire cheek area have an excellent option in VOLUMA XC. This filler contains lidocaine for increased comfort during treatments. Results may last up to 2 years.*
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC: Using the same active ingredient in other JUVÉDERM products, VOLBELLA adds volume, shape, and definition in a unique formulation that’s ideal for the lips. VOLBELLA can dramatically improve thin, wrinkled, or “deflated” lips and reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth for up to 1 year.*
Restylane® Lyft: This was the first filler approved by the FDA to both augment and lift the cheeks and add volume to the nasolabial folds, often called “smile lines,” for patients who are at least 21. Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that includes lidocaine to minimize discomfort during your treatment.
Restylane Contour: is a hyaluronic acid (HA) cheek filler designed to restore cheek definition with natural-looking results and flexible movement with each vibrant expression. It is the only cheek filler designed with XpresHAn Technology™ . It utilizes the brand's proprietary XpresHAn Technology to integrate the filler's gel seamlessly into the skin, promoting more natural movement with each facial expression.
Restylane Refyne is a flexible filler that’s ideal for areas of movement. For example, it can help soften nasolabial folds (also called laugh lines) and marionette lines, the creases that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin.
Restylane Defyne fills severe, deep wrinkles and folds, such as laugh lines and marionette lines. Like Refyne, it’s a flexible filler meant for areas of high movement.
Restylane Lyft is a robust filler that adds volume to cheeks and hands. Lyft, like the other Restylane fillers, contains lidocaine to numb the area and reduce discomfort.
Restylane Kysse is FDA-approved for augmenting lips and treating upper perioral rhytids, the lip wrinkles sometimes called smoker’s lines. While Restylane Silk lasts about six months in the lips, Restylane Kysse has been shown to last up to a year. Like Lyft, it contains lidocaine.
What are dermal fillers used to treat?
This depends somewhat on which dermal filler you’re using, but the broad answer is lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to plump and define lips and fill hollow areas on the face. Here are some of the areas where they work best:
- lines from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial fold)
- lines from the mouth to the chin (melomental fold)
- lines above the upper lip
- frown lines (best combined with BOTOX, Dysport, Jeuveau Cosmetic)
- in the lips for volume and definition
- to restore volume to cheekbones or cheeks
- in some situations, under the eyes
- to fill out the backs of the hands and make veins look less prominent
Juvederm and Restylane are both FDA-approved product lines of hyaluronic acid fillers that include customized formulations for different areas of the face.
These areas include:
Lip enhancement (Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus)
Correction of age-related volume loss (Restylane Lyft, Restylane Contour, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella XC)
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles (Restylane-L, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Volite)
These treatments, among others, can be used to create facial rejuvenation, as well as the enhancement of delicate features such as the lips, cheekbones, and even hands.
Your injector will recommend the right type or combination of filler to create the most natural-looking results.
