Juvederm & Restylane for Wrinkles at SkinProvement Dermatology in New York NYC Area

New York dermatologist explains the difference between Juvéderm and Restylane for wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of aging, but that doesn’t mean that everyone welcomes their appearance. If you are tired of spending money on ineffective creams and serums to get rid of your wrinkles, the team at SkinProvement® Dermatology is here to help! We offer patients in the New York, NY area a wide array of professional-grade treatments designed to smooth out unwanted wrinkles and refresh their appearance, including Juvéderm and Restylane. Many patients are curious about the difference between these two popular dermal fillers and which one might be a better option for their needs. Dr. Stephen Comite is always happy to explain your options and help you decide which one is best for your precise needs and preferences.

Similarities between Juvéderm and Restylane

Juvéderm and Restylane are both dermal fillers, which are injectables that are designed to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles, boost facial volume in strategic areas, augment your natural facial features, and restore youthfulness to your overall look. Dermal fillers are two of the most popular cosmetic injectables used today, with the other being neuromodulators (such as Botox). Whereas neuromodulators work by relaxing facial muscles that lead to active contractions and wrinkle formation, dermal fillers work by physically filling the space in which they are injected with specially formulated ingredients to plump the skin while providing a natural-looking appearance. Juvéderm and Restylane are both:

  • Effective – both options are great at filling in wrinkles and boosting volume
  • Hyaluronic acid-based – hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally occurs in the body and helps bind collagen to water, so skin stays hydrated and youthful
  • Minimally invasive – no surgery, scalpels, or downtime is required
  • Convenient – treatment can easily be done on your lunch break or after work

Additionally, while both treatments can have minor side effects such as redness and irritation at the injection site, there is little risk of an allergic reaction. Dr. Comite will discuss the potential side effects and other important information with you before your treatment.

Key differences between Juvéderm and Restylane

While there are differences in formulation, the end results are generally similar. Many unique filler types within the Juvéderm and Restylane families are specifically formulated for specific facial areas, so an experienced dermatologist like Dr. Comite can help you decide which injectable brand is right for you.

The cost is pretty comparable for the two filler options, and results typically last around the same length of time, though the price and how long your results last will depend on your unique skin and treatment plan.
