What is in JUVÉDERM®?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in the skin that helps retain moisture and deliver nutrients, keeping the skin soft and smooth. Because it is naturally occurring, HA is safe and easy to use, with minimal side effects.
Treatments usually take 15-30 minutes and are relatively painless when using a topical anesthetic. A fine needle or a blunt microcannula is used to deliver the product depending on the area being injected and the desired outcome of the injection.
Is JUVÉDERM® Right for you?
With so many different filler products available, how do you know which is the right one for you? It’s important to choose a physician that is not only an expert injector but one whose aesthetic view is comparable to yours. Make sure to have a detailed consultation explaining what you are trying to achieve and listen carefully as your physician explains their recommended treatment plan. Remember to keep your expectations realistic and understand that several treatments over several months may be needed to achieve the desired correction. In some cases, a combination of different products or treatments may be recommended for optimum results.

What is Restylane®?
Restylane® Lyft (formerly Perlane) is a hyaluronic acid filler used to augment and replace lost volume in the face. Its stabilized, engineered formula is best for deep creases rather than shallow lines because of its large particle structure. Lifting the cheek area results in improvement of nasolabial folds and jowls, restoring youthful facial appearance. Restylane® Lyft is a very versatile product with a long, proven history of providing safe, precise and predictable results. The results are immediate and, in most patients, last up to 12 months.
