Juvederm vs Restylane, which is better?

Posted May 11, 2008 under Juvederm® - No comments

I am thinking of having Juvederm injected into my smile lines to smooth out the folds. I am a first timer with fillers and I am worried about the possibility of bumps and the filler becoming hard or moving to a different area after it is injected. Can that be corrected if it happens? Which would you recommend, Restylane or Juverderm. I am a 38 year old African American. Thanks

Juvederm and Restylane work both work very well for smoothing out the nasolabial folds (smile lines). If either of them move or create a lump, they can be dissolved with a medication called Hyaluronidase. Radiesse also works very well for this area and can last longer, but it can not be dissolved. Skin color does not affect the choice of which filler to use.
