Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane® are safe, natural, FDA approved, unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel known as hyaluronic acid. This material is normally found between skin cells in the human body and typically degrades over time due to the effects of gravity, aging and environmental damage. By injecting Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane® into the skin in small amounts, this lost substance is replaced, thereby rejuvenating tissue by adding volume to lips and reducing wrinkles or folds.
Typically performed under local or topical anesthesia, Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane® injections are quickly performed in a comfortable office setting and require no subsequent “down time”. No skin testing is required. Results are immediate and will last approximately 6 to 9 months for lip augmentation, and often longer for wrinkle reduction. Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane® injections represent an ideal non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation by enhancing facial contours and erasing unwanted signs of aging.
When considering Juvederm®, Belotero®. or Restylane® injections, or indeed any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
