Juvéderm® dermal filler was FDA-approved in June 2006 for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds (those lines that extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth).
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a gel implant that includes hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance. It is biocompatible, supplementing the body's natural hyaluronic acid, which age has depleted.
How Does Juvéderm® Work?
The transparent Juvéderm® gel is injected with a syringe into the mid- to deep dermis of your face. The dermis is the subsurface skin layer that contains connective tissue, nerve endings, sweat and oil glands, and blood vessels.
Juvéderm® improves your appearance by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. After six to nine months, the biocompatible compound is naturally absorbed into the body.
A Juvéderm® advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which may provide a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. Another advantage is that Juvéderm® may last longer, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months. The benefits may last even longer if you have a follow-up treatment a few weeks after the first treatment.
Juvéderm® Side Effects
Side effects with Juvéderm® are rare, but may include redness, tenderness, or pain at the injection site. If these occur, they usually subside within three days. Rarely, discoloration may occur, but this is reversible.Firmness, swelling, bumps, and bruises are also rare side effects, which should subside within seven days.
How does Restylane® work?

By combining lidocaine with Restylane®, Restylane-L help reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
In clinical studies evaluating the Restylane® family of products:
72% of patients reported significantly less pain during treatment with Restylane-L vs. Restylane.
Patients continued to experience less discomfort for up to one hour after treatment.
The Restylane® family can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines).
The Restylane® family can also be used in other moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as lipstick linesthe area just below the nose and above the upper lip; the corners of the mouth; and marionette linesthe area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
