OVERVIEW
Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Juvederm is injected into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). Dr. Anagnos uses Juvederm to smooth those 'parentheses' lines/creases, on the sides of your nose and mouth and instantly gives you a more youthful look. It may cause minor swelling and bruising that can be covered with makeup. Dr. Anagnos also uses Juvederm to lessen acne scars, make lips more full, mitigate stubborn scars, lessen and smooth vertical lip lines.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUVEDERM AND RESTYLANE?
Juvederm contains a higher concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid and is more concentrated than Restylane. Whether that translates into a major difference in duration of effect remains to be seen. At this point, Dr. Rivkin prefers Juvederm to Restylane for wrinkle correction and lip enhancement because Juvederm is smoother and less viscous. There seem to be less bumps and less pain with Juvederm than with Restylane. Juvederm is also supposed to last around 9-12 months, as compared to 6-9 for Restylane.
