What is Restylane®?
We’re pleased to offer Restylane® treatments, an exciting option for those who are looking for skin rejuvenation. Restylane® was developed in Sweden, and since 1996 has helped millions of patients in 70 countries have younger–looking skin.
The science behind Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, which is present in youthful skin but recedes and changes in structure as we age. Restylane® gel injections boost your natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which will smooth out signs of aging and brings out the best of your features.
Restylane® gel treatments can diminish the appearance of:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines (adjacent to the mouth)
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines, from nose to mouth)
- Perorbital lines (crow’s feet)
What is Perlane®?
Perlane® is a thicker, more viscous, longer lasting version of Restylane®. The description of Perlane® is the same as Restylane®, except that it is a little firmer, and has less tendency to move through the tissue compared to Restylane®. Perlane® also lasts a few months longer than Restylane®.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® was approved in 2006 by the FDA as a safe option for softening wrinkles, plumping lips, and maintaining a youthful appearance – and since then, its popularity has skyrocketed.
The Juvederm® procedure is simple, painless, and requires little to no recovery time. Juvederm® uses hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies and absorbs 1,000 times its weight in water. When this is injected into the problem areas of the face, it adds volume to the area, smoothing out wrinkles, lines and folds.
Hyaluronic acid has also been found to maintain or even accelerate the forming of new collagen. Our clients have been thrilled with the results, which are immediately visible and last up to one year.
