JUVÉDERM® / Restylane®

Juvederm® / Restylane® is a solution of hyaluronic acid in the form of a gel. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance (a complex sugar) that stabilizes the skin structure, attracts and binds water, and contributes to the elastic properties of the skin that allow it to remain tight.  Juvederm® / Restylane® Hyaluronic Acid injection into the skin has been approved by the FDA to replenish the skin’s natural support structures damaged by aging and are commonly used for filling in facial wrinkles and hollows and lip augmentation.

There are different types of hyaluronic acid fillers available in the market, which vary greatly in molecule size and persistence.  Our body gradually absorbs the injected hyaluronic acid and turns it into water molecules through metabolism. The effect may last for more than half a year to a year and a half. The time required for the treatment is around fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on the position and area targeted for the treatment. 

Juvederm® / Restylane® can be done on different parts of the face to deal with various facial problems:

Filling of nasolabial folds, smokers lines, and tear trough
Filling of sunken scars
Chin enhancement
Nose bridge enhancement
Lips augmentation
Cheek augmentation
Improving water-retaining ability of the skin and skin tightening
Filling of wrinkles and scars
Improving skin elasticity of the face

The hyaluronic acid injection is used for cosmetology purposes. It can increase the volume of subcutaneous tissues, which can be applied to enhance jawlines, nose bridges and to fill the sunken areas caused by loss of collagen, such as temples and the cheek, as well as lips plumping and wrinkle reduction. On the other hand, hyaluronic acid of small molecule size can be injected into the skin layer to achieve moisturizing and tightening effects.

It should be noted that the treatment must be performed by registered doctors and relevant risks should be clearly understood before the treatment. If there is any problem before or after the treatment, consultation with the attending medical personnel is necessary.
