RestylaneLines and creases that form around the mouth are usually caused by gravity and a breakdown of tissues beneath the skin.

Restylane® and JuvédermTM are classified under the "injectables" category. What are they and how do they work?

Restylane® and JuvédermTM are similar hyaluronic acid products, comparable in most ways and simply manufactured by competing companies. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. It is delivered in a gel form, via injection, into various sites that you and your physician have decided need to be "filled." 

Restylane® and JuvédermTM injections are often used to fill laugh or smile lines around the mouth, an area where some of the first signs of aging occur, and to soften "crows feet" around the eyes. Wrinkles occur, in general, due to the continued use of various muscles that are involved with facial expressions. Collagen, the flexible support structure just beneath the skin, begins to break down due to wear and tear. The breaking down of collagen causes mild to deep lines or wrinkles because the structure eventually "gives in."  These injectables are perfect for filling in such lines.

Additionally, as the face ages, youthful fat disappears, leaving a more angular, less youthful-looking appearance. Using an injectable filler such as Restylane® or JuvédermTM is an excellent means of restoring what has been lost due to normal aging. Many know Restylane® and JuvédermTM as common methods for enhancing the plumpness of lips and even ridding evidence of "smoker's lines" around the lip area.

How long do the filling and plumping effects of Restylane® last?

The duration of results vary between individuals, however, on average, due to the body's ability to reabsorb the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, results are expected to last between six to nine months. At that time, more injections would be necessary to maintain the filled or plumped-up effects.
