Juvéderm & Restylane

Dermal fillers are one of our most popular non-surgical treatments because they give our patients a variety of improvements.

These treatments are performed to:

  • Smooth out wrinkles on the face like crow’s feet, smile lines (nasolabial folds), and lip lines

  • Fill in shallow surface scars such as those caused by acne or chicken pox

  • Renew the appearance of the face and backs of the hands by restoring lost volume to areas like hollows under the eyes and sunken cheeks

  • Sculpt and plump up lips

While dermal fillers provide impressive results on their own, combining BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments with fillers can enhance your results even further. Our fillers can also enhance the results of facial plastic surgery for women and men.

Your Options

  • Restylane® and Juvéderm® are made from hyaluronic acid, which naturally gives the skin fullness and elasticity. These temporary fillers last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the product and area treated. These fillers are safe, reversible, and have a nice soft natural effect.

We make the process simple. We understand which filler will give you the improvements you want and will develop a customized treatment plan for you.

Simple Treatments

Dermal filler treatments are quick and easy. After a topical anesthetic takes effect, we use a fine needle or canula to inject a precise amount of filler beneath the skin. The whole process is usually completed in less than 30 minutes. There is no required recovery period, so you can leave our office looking smooth and refreshed and jump back into your busy life.

Restylane vs. Juvéderm

Restylane and Juvederm are two of the biggest names in hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. As dermal fillers have risen in popularity to correct volume loss, provide cheek augmentation and lip enhancement, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, these two lines of hyaluronic acid fillers have continued to develop exciting formulations that are tailored to treat all areas of the face. Dr. Michele Green was one of the first NYC dermatologists to incorporate hyaluronic fillers into her boutique private New York office.

Dermal filler treatments have become a go-to option for those seeking facial rejuvenation due to their unique ability to ignite collagen production in the body without any recovery time required.If you’re interested in rejuvenation without any downtime, we are here to help.

What are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables that are commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to boost volume in key areas such as the lips or the midface. One of the most popular active ingredients for dermal fillers is that of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is used to stimulate collagen production. Through a hyaluronic acid filler, patients are able to use targeted hyaluronic acid treatment to boost volume at and around the injection site, smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, as well as plumping the skin.

What’s the difference between Juvederm and Restylane?

Restylane and Juvederm are both excellent hyaluronic acid filler product lines that treat similar areas of the face. Restylane is made by the pharmaceutical company Galderma, whereas Juvederm is from Allergan, the makers of Botox. A key difference between Restylane and Juvederm has to do with the consistency of the injectable. Juvederm formulation has a smooth, gel-like consistency, while Restylane is made up of a granular or particulate gel. Due to this, Juvederm quickly diffuses into tissue, and Restylane tends to be more cohesive and stay where it is initially injected.

Another difference between these two product lines is of the longevity of results, as typically Juvederm lasts a few months longer than Restylane injections. This is due to a difference in the cross-linking technologies that each dermal filler family of products uses. Both Juvederm and Restylane have a variety of different formulations, some of which are more volume-boosting, and some of which are thinner to smooth out fine lines, such as Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk. Juvederm also has a thicker hyaluronic acid filler formulation for Juvederm Voluma, which is used to treat volume loss in the mid-face, which is a competitor of Restylane Lyft. Furthermore, both the Restylane and Juvederm families of hyaluronic acid filler have formulations that include lidocaine in order to ease any discomfort during treatment.

Can Restylane and Juvederm be combined with Botox?

Restylane and Juvederm are often combined with other injectables, such as Botox, in order to provide pan-facial rejuvenation. In the case of Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers, they can be quite complementary. For example, Botox can help to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles around the eyes while Restylane or Juvederm can be used to restore volume, enhance the lips, or reduce the appearance of fine lines and folds around the mouth.
