Restylane® and JUVEDERM™ are both safe and effective ways of achieving a more youthful appearance. They are common non-surgical methods for treating unwanted creases and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in human skin that fills in the space between the collagen and elastin fibres. With age, the amount of HA in your body depletes, leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles. The injection of Restylane® and JUVEDERM™ counteracts this aging effect.
In our experience, patients that undergo multiple treatments have the best, most satisfying results. The effect of your first HA treatment may last from 3 to 9 months, but this time frame varies from person to person. Generally, most clients require 2-3 treatments over the first year. After this initial set of treatments, the enhanced appearance will last much longer.
