When it comes to getting rid of facial wrinkles, the terms Juvederm® and Restylane® go hand and hand for most people. Both are cosmetic procedures used to treat wrinkles and are considered competitors that deliver similar outcomes. However, it is important to have some understanding before exploring your treatment options.
What are Juvederm® and Restylane®?
Both involve the injection of hyaluronic acid into the target area to treat wrinkles. The skin secretes hyaluronic acid and breaks it down before building it up as part of an ongoing process. However, this natural process is slowed down by age.
Where are Juvederm® and Restylane® Applied?
These treatments are applied to smooth the nasolabial folds, lines on the corners of the mouth and the sides of the nose. Those “laughter lines” around your lips that you probably find irritating can be treated as well depending on the situation and the type of wrinkle.
How Long Do the Treatments Last?
Generally, these procedures take the same amount of time. However, the effectiveness of both treatments is subject to two multiple factors which might include:
1. The Area of Treatment – A second round of treatment often creates a lasting effect. However, it all depends on the situation.
2. Getting a Qualified Person to Perform the Procedure – This is where our team at MacMed Spa can help!
It is important that you get a fully-trained and certified professional who understands the anatomy of the area that is receiving the treatment. Juvederm® and Restylane® treatments can help you get rid of annoying wrinkles and restore your youthful look. However, it all begins with finding the right expert who is duly certified and licensed to perform the procedure.
