Juvederm or Restylane For Lip Augmentation?
Sometimes two forces seem to be at war: Our desire for youthful beauty and the inevitable effects of time. Not necessarily age, but time. These lines can be caused by the time spent worrying, laughing, or smiling. It can happen at any age for lots of different reasons.
To repair the damage on the battlefield, our faces, there are alternatives to plastic surgery that are FDA approved, used in over 70 countries and can dramatically reduce some of these lines for six months or more.
Restylane and Juvederm® are two choices that are not irreversible like plastic surgeries. Since every face is different, one will want professional consultation, but there is some basic information that is good to know when considering Juvederm vs Restylane.
Both fall under the category of Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. HA is a non-animal, complex sugar that is present in every living cell. Working like a sponge, it hydrates by absorbing more than 1000 times its weight in water, providing volume and pliability. In other words, HA is already present in your skin. You’re supplementing what is already there but in much greater quantities to reduce folds and wrinkles. HA will dissipate over time as part of a natural process. Results vary but usually last at least six months and can last up to a year for some.
Minor formulary differences can cause different effects in the folds of the skin which a qualified doctor can illuminate. Juvederm Ultra® XC tends to diffuse more widely and usually works best for indistinct folds. Restylane usually stays close to where it is injected and works best for deeper folds and wrinkles.
