When choosing a facial filler, patients may be confused about which product is best for them. Many of the options on the market today sound remarkably similar to each other. For example, Dr. Tavoussi offers both Juvederm and Restylane branded fillers. Use this guide to determine which option would be best for you, and chat with Dr. Tavoussi during a consultation for a professional opinion.
Benefits of Facial Dermal Fillers
Both Juvederm and Restylane are fillers designed primarily for the face. They are typically used to fill creases, wrinkles and folds to smooth the facial skin, creating a younger and more vibrant look. They are both injected beneath the skin using a very small needle. While this needle is so small that it does not cause much pain, some patients may wish to use a topical anesthetic to block any discomfort. Both of these fillers last for at least six months and may last as long as a year. There is some differing of opinion on which one actually lasts longer, and this may be based on personal usage. Additionally, both are used mainly on the nasolabial folds, marionette lines between the lips and nose, the lips and creases across the forehead.
Getting either of these cosmetic fillers is a great option for people who do not have a lot of time. Most procedures take less than 30 minutes, making them great for people who are on lunch breaks from work or who lead busy lives. Most people have no side effects from the fillers, meaning that they can return to work and their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. When side effects do occur, they are normally mild and could include transient redness, bruising or swelling. Request a consultation with Dr. Tavoussi today to see if facial contouring using Juvederm or Restylane are right for you.
