Juvederm / Restylane

Once you turn 20, your body cannot maintain the same level of collagen production it did in previous years. And since collagen is the protein in your body responsible for keeping your skin taut and smooth, you can expect fine lines and wrinkles to begin developing once your collagen levels slow.

While you can’t prevent the reduction of collagen in your body from happening, there is a way to restore the volume that results from this natural aging process. Juvederm and Restylane are two minimally invasive treatments that can bring back that youthful look you desire.

If you are interested in getting a better understanding about how Juvederm or Restylane can help provide you with a more youthful appearance, fill out our online contact form so we can get you started today!

What Is Juvederm and Restylane?

Juvederm and Restylane are both temporary injectable treatments made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that, when injected directly into the skin, can provide additional volume to the skin to help smooth wrinkles and fill sunken areas of the face. These fillers can also add significant volume to lips for a more plump and full appearance.

Patients turn to this procedure when they would like to improve the visible signs of aging on their face without undergoing extensive surgical procedures like a facelift. Since injectables like Juvederm do not require anesthesia or surgical facilities, the cost of the treatment is much more affordable than other facial methods.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Juvederm or Restylane?

Juvederm and Restylane are minimally invasive procedures performed in the office in only a few minutes. Since the process involves no surgery, most people are great candidates for injectable filler treatment. However, it is essential before having the procedure done that you set realistic expectations about what either of these products can achieve.

What Should I Expect from the Juvederm or Restylane Procedure?

The first step in the Juvederm or Restylane process is scheduling a consultation with Millennium Laser and Aesthetic Center. By conducting an examination and listening to your aesthetic goals, Dr. Gulinson can determine what the best treatment plan for your unique anatomy will be.

Once a treatment plan has been developed, having the soft tissue filler injections performed is relatively painless compared to other cosmetic procedures. Generally, Dr. Gulinson or one of our medical professionals can perform the injection at our office within 15 minutes.

What Is a Juvederm and Restylane Injection Recovery Like?

There is little to no recovery process or downtime following a Juvederm or Restylane injection, although you might be asked to refrain from applying makeup for the first 24 hours following your injection. Most patients are capable of returning to low-impact jobs the following day.

It is normal to experience minor pain, discomfort or swelling immediately following your procedure, but most patients are able to manage these mild symptoms with a cold compress or over-the-counter medications.

What Kind of Results Does Juvederm or Restylane Provide?

These fillers excel at providing additional volume in areas throughout the face that have been impacted by the reduction of collagen production. You can expect the treated areas to have a fuller appearance with reduced fine lines and wrinkles. If you are using them to increase your lips’ volume, you can expect a much more robust and luscious lip aesthetic.

Depending on the filler you receive, your treatment could last anywhere between 12 and 24 months, but touch-up treatments may be necessary depending on your unique conditions and anatomy.
