What are Juvederm® and Restylane®?

Unlike the popular nerve-inhibitor BOTOX®, fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body to help your skin look firm and youthful. As you get older, your skin’s natural HA levels begin to subside, causing a loss of volume and structure that can result in deep lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth.

By injecting fillers such as Juvederm®/Restylane® into your skin and restoring your levels of HA, the appearance of wrinkles will naturally begin to fade. It is an excellent treatment option to:

  • Replenish lost volume in the cheeks
  • Fill in deep nasolabial folds
  • Add volume to lips
  • Treat small, vertical lines around the lips

The unique formula in these fillers looks and feels very soft and natural. Both Juvederm® and Restylane® treatment is reversible in the event of overcorrection or minor complications. This versatility provides Dr. Weichert and Dr Barnsley with greater control over your final results and minimizes the risk of complications.

Your Filler Procedure

During your non-surgical treatment session, the appropriate filler product will be injected into the targeted treatment areas by experienced dermatologist Dr. Weichert or board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Barnsley. With years of extensive training and clinical experience, our physicians understand the musculature and contours of the face and knows precisely how to soften lines and hollows.

You may experience slight pressure or mild discomfort, but these sensations will quickly subside. Your results should be immediately visible and they will continue to develop over the next few days. For most patients, results last between six and nine months, at which point a follow-up treatment is necessary to refresh your results.
