RESTYLANE AND DYSPORT: THE PERFECT PAIR
Many of our patients these days are familiar with Botox and Juvederm, and request those treatments to eliminate wrinkles and to add volume to the face. However, there are other options that are becoming popular in medical spas that will give you the same results, and in many cases work better for some patients.
What is Restylane?
Restylane® is a cosmetic filler that is injected into areas of decreased volume that show up in your face over time due to aging and the effects of gravity and sun. Similar to Juvederm, the purpose of the filler is to add volume, thus diminishing or almost completely eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane is modified to provide a volume-enhancing effect that will last longer than what would be expected from “naturally” occurring hyaluronic acid found in the body.
The goal is to get you the longest duration possible. Like other fillers, there are many areas that are possible for treatment, including lips, nasal folds, and marionette lines around the mouth and under the eyes.
To answer the question of which filler is better, Juvederm or Restylane, it really comes down to which results work best for you and the areas you want to correct.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a simple, effective, non-surgical treatment that works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing and smoothing away frown-lines and wrinkles.
Simliar to Botox, by temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Dysport can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful appearance to your face. The lasting effect of treatment with Dysport can differ between individuals, though most treatments last approximately three months.
Once again, personal preference is usually the deciding factor in which treatment to use. Some patients like how Botox works on their problem areas, while others get a better result from Dysport. Often times, both injectables are used to treat difficult areas. Your technician will know the best course of treatment after they have seen the areas in need of correction.
