Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Restylane®

Maker: Galderma

Main Ingredient:  Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

How It Works: Restylane is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that enables skin to retain its shape and volume.  The hyaluronic acid molecules bind to the body’s natural stores of water.  This gradually “plumping up” the skin, giving it a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Uses: Good for superficial wrinkles to moderate creases of the face.  Restylane also restores mild volume loss.   It is ideal for wrinkles between the eyebrows, upper and lower lip, hollowing under the eyes, and any depressed scars on the face.  Restylane is comparable to Juvederm Utra

Duration: Results can last up to 1 year, although 6-8 months is typical.

Restylane Lyft®

Maker: Galderma

Main Ingredient:  Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

How It Works: Restylane Lyft is the “sister” product of Restylane.  It too contains hyaluronic acid, but in slightly larger particles.  The larger particles allow Restylane Lyft to treat deep wrinkles and folds.  Both Restylane Lyft and Restylane are minimally cross-linked, making them similar to the natural hyaluronic acid found in the body.

Uses: Good for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.  Restylane Lyft also adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.   It is commonly used for the naso-labial folds, marionette lines, significant lip enhancements, the hollows of the cheeks, and facial shaping.  Restylane Lyft is comparable to Juvederm Utra Plus

Duration: Results can last up to 1 year, although 6-9 months is typical.

Juvederm®:

Maker: Allergan

Main Ingredient:  Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

How It Works: Juvederm uses HYLACROSS technology, which provides a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than other fillers.   This creates a less granular gel that is even in consistency, resulting in smooth, natural looking skin.  Juvederm  “plumps up” the skin while filling and smoothing out any surface wrinkles.

Uses: There are two types of Juvederm: Juvederm Ultra  is used to correct superficial to moderately deep facial wrinkles and restores mild volume loss.  It is ideal for wrinkles between the eyebrows, upper and lower lip, hollowing under the eyes, and any depressed scar on the face.  Juvederm Ultra Plus is a denser formula helpful for improving the appearance of much deeper facial folds such as the naso-labial folds, marionette lines, significant lip enhancements, the hollows of the cheeks, and facial shaping.  Juvederm Utra is comparable to Restylane /Juvederm Utra Plus is comparable to Restylane Lyft

Duration: Results can last up to 1 year, although 6-9 months is typical.

Juvederm Voluma XC®

Maker: Allergan

Main Ingredient:  Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

How It Works: Voluma is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process call Vycross.  This results in a smooth gel that flows easily and can be nicely sculpted.  With a higher degree of cross-linking, Voluma restores facial contours affected by loss of volume and has an excellent lifting capacity.  Because it is placed deep within the tissues, Voluma adds support to the overlying skin and restores facial contours at a structural level.

Uses: Voluma is the newest member of the Juvederm family and is the only filler specifically designed to restore fullness to areas where there is serious volume loss.  Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin.  Additionally, due to its versatility it is also suitable for adding definition to the jaw line.

Duration: Voluma has long-lasting results because of a higher resistance to degradation.  Results have been recorded to last up to 2 years.
