Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid fillers used for non-surgical rejuvenation of the face. These fillers are temporary and are the ideal fillers for patients wanting to soften the folds around your mouth, lines from your upper lip, or wrinkles around your eyes. These fillers generally last between 6 – 9 months. Dr. Desai has experience with the injection of both Restylane and Juvederm and will personally perform the service for you to minimize complications and pain and to ensure you have a result that will last as long as feasibly possible.
Some topical numbing cream or nerve blocks are performed prior to injection to ensure your comfort and minimize any pain associated with the injections. Patients can return to their normal activities the day following filler injections. Some minor swelling or bruising resolves quickly.
