Restylane is an injectable gel that enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance. Restylane restores volume, improves skin elasticity, and smooths fine lines and imperfections so that your skin can look smoother and younger! This product is slightly shorter acting, lasting about 6 months, so a great choice for those who are unsure about using fillers.
Just like Restylane, Perlane (FAQs for Perlane) adds 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). This product is very dense for maximum lift and longevity. Perlane can last over a year depending on how much is administered.
Juvederm is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles in the lower face. This product is very soft and can be used in tear trough area, fine lip lines, acne scars, really anywhere where fine detail is needed. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for any person who is less than satisfied with the suppleness and fullness of their face. As we age we lose the soft tissue volume holding our skin up and dermal fillers are a very quick, safe and easy way to correct that problem. We can even perform a Liquid Facelift using a combination of multiple dermal fillers and Botox for those who are not yet ready to go through surgical procedures.
Dermal Fillers are injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The gel provides hydration and structure and gives natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines, enhance facial shape, or create fuller lips.
The treatment is very quick and often takes less than 30 minutes. You can expect slight redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, itching and/or bruising following a dermal filler treatment. However, the discomfort is temporary and generally disappears after a few days. (The bonus is that results are typically apparent right away!)
When you’re enhancing your lips, it is wise to choose your treatment time with care since your lips may become swollen and appear slightly uneven for a few days.
Depending on the amount of volume you want to replace you may need multiple syringes of product. Two syringes are average for the nasolabial folds, one syringe for the lips, four to 6 syringes for a Liquid Facelift. The more syringes you use the longer the results last, however we want to be sure and maintain a very natural appearance.
Meg had never had super-plump Angelina Jolie lips to begin with so that by the time her 45th birthday came around she felt like her already thin lips had all but disappeared. Not wanting to “look like a duck” the way that a lot of “Hollywood types” sometimes do, Meg was skeptical when she came to Skin Savvy for an evaluation.
Once she saw before and after shots and had the procedure explained to her, Meg decided that she’d take the chance and go for it.
The results? “I look in the mirror now and can’t believe what I see!” she says. “Not only do I actually have full lips for the first time in my life, they look incredibly natural! I am truly amazed by what a difference they make to my entire face. Honestly I was very worried that I’d wind up with some giant poofy top lip but when Jennifer explained the injection technique to me, I realized that wouldn’t happen to me. I am beyond thrilled with my new pout – and so is my husband!”
