JUVÉDERM® is a gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. It’s injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume. The look and feel is so nature that people will definitely notice, but no one will know! JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
Another filler is called Restylane. A safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler, it restores volume and fullness to the skin as a means to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It’s also effective in giving your lips a more youthful look.
Restylane is made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Results are instantaneous and last about 6 months.
It is not commonly know that, unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acid-based products, Restylane is free from animal proteins. This quality limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane also has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available in any dermal filler.
