Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, part of our body’s normal make-up. The injection under wrinkles and folds provides a smooth, natural look and feel–so everyone will notice (but no one will know!)

Restylane is another injectable dermal filler product that we offer. This filler can correct the same signs of aging that Juvederm can. While Juvederm is a smooth gel, Restylane is granular. This granular consistency makes it a more cohesive dermal filler, meaning it is more likely to remain where it is injected.
During a consultation, your skin condition will be assessed to help determine which dermal filler suits your skin type better. At Platinum Medical Spa, injections are done by our Physician. The selection of Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus, or Restylane is made with your needs in mind. Your comfort during this process is of our utmost concern. There are many ways we strive to deliver this comfort at Platinum, one of which includes Allergan’s newest product line of Juvederm XC which features both Ultra and Ultra Plus mixed with lidocaine. Artistry and great results are what we pride ourselves on at Platinum Medical Spa.

Juvederm and Restylane are injectable gels that add volume to facial tissue and restore a smooth appearance to the face. These dermal filler products are used to rejuvenate facial contours, fill in wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production.
These injectables can correct volume loss and smooth away moderate and harsh wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and parentheses lines. The products’ main component is hyaluronic acid, which is known for improving moisture and volume.
Juvederm is indicated for injection for the correction of moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds. The most common areas treated are the “smile lines” around the nose and mouth and the fine lines above the mouth. Juvederm is also used to lessen the downward slant at the corners of the mouth and to increase the fullness of the lips. Dermal fillers can be used to raise scar depressions and replace soft-tissue volume loss in specific areas of the face.
Juvederm and Restylane is primarily indicated for skin aging correction to achieve a more youthful appearance. It is a minimally invasive option for people who want to treat wrinkles and sagging skin without having to go under the knife.
The best candidates are healthy individuals whose wrinkles are not caused by prolonged sun exposure. UV rays can decrease the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body which contradicts the base ingredient of Juvederm and Restylane.
Juvederm and Restylane are FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers that generally last from six months to one year. However, Platinum Medical Spa provides various types of Juvederm and Restylane, and different types show results for different lengths of time.
How long your results will last will depend on factors like the amount of product used and the area of injection. Lifestyle habits can also affect the longevity of Juvederm and Restylane. People who often drink alcohol and smoke are more likely to develop signs of aging at a more rapid rate, reducing the benefits of Juvederm and Restylane. Metabolism also affects longevity.
Our doctor will numb the treatment area prior to the injection to minimize the discomfort. The gel is injected using a fine gauge needle, and its smooth consistency allows safe and easy administration.
Most side effects are mild in nature and their duration is short. The most common side effects are temporary injection site reactions such as redness, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps and mild bruising. If side effects are still present after 10 days, schedule a follow-up consultation with your skincare expert at Platinum Medical Spa.
Allow approximately 30-60 minutes for the procedure itself. While there may be some redness or slight swelling, most clients experience no downtime. Patients can leave the office after the treatment and resume regular activities with no need for any sort of recovery process.
