Restylane vs Juvéderm
The world of injectable fillers is full of subtle nuances. While Juvéderm and Restylane are often used interchangeably, their difference consistencies make them more or less effective for treating certain areas of the face. While Juvéderm readily diffuses into tissue, Restylane is more cohesive and tends to stay where it is placed. This makes Restylane a more effective choice for adding facial volume. Of course, everyone’s face is difference. Therefore, when you come in to our award winning clinic, Megan will take the time to evaluate your facial structure and recommend the most effective filler choice for you.
Restylane Treatment Process
Restylane injections typically take about an hour to administer. This time includes the time spent discussing and assessing your goals. Those concerned about pain during injection will be happy to know that most of our patients find the process tolerable. Megan has administered thousands of Restylane treatments over the years, making her an expert in minimizing pain and discomfort. That being said, if ice packs and numbing ointment can be administered to the injection site if you are especially worried. At Travis Shaw, MD, we take every precaution to make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible.
Restylane injections provide beautifully subtle improvements to volume and sagging skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Most of our fillers last from 9 months to a year depending on your treatment area and specific filler choice. In addition, Restylane’s hyaluronic acid consistency attracts water, helping your skin stay radiant and hydrated. Over time, the compound will also aid in natural collagen production, offering long term results.
Treatment Recovery and Downtime
Our Restylane treatments are administered carefully to minimize downtime. While some bruising may be possible after treatment, it is highly unlikely. We use time tested techniques and leading industry practices to minimize this risk. At Travis Shaw, MD, expert care means beauty without compromise, therefore you can expect the highest degree of care during your visit.
