Dermal Fillers in Restylane Products and JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel

The development of fine lines and wrinkles on the face is an inevitable part of the natural aging process. These wrinkles can make an individual appear older, tired, and even angry. Fortunately, we provide the latest in non-aesthetic surgical treatment methods to help patients achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance. Forma Plastic Surgery offers Restylane Products and JUVÉDERM™ Products Injectable Gel treatments, which are highly-effective at eliminating lines and wrinkles on the face. Some of our advanced dermal fillers can also be used to enhance the lips and facial contours. The result of our treatments is a younger, more refreshed facial appearance.

Restylane Product Injections

We provide Restylane Product injections to Forma Plastic Surgery patients. One of the newest dermal treatments on the market today, Restylane Product injections offer a safe approach to smoothing facial wrinkles and moisturizing the skin. Forma Plastic Surgery offers Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane Products are a clear biodegradable gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Hyaluronic acid fills in the spaces between collagen and elastin fibers to cushion soft tissue. Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases due to the natural aging process, contributing to the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Restylane Product injections are used to help replace the hyaluronic acid, resulting in a more youthful facial appearance.

Restylane Product Treatment Process

In performing the treatment, our doctors use a thin needle to inject Restylane Product into skin tissue. The hyaluronic acid in the gel draws in water, causing the tissue near the fine lines and wrinkles to swell and attain a smoother appearance. Because the needle is very fine, patients experience little to no pain during the treatment. The entire Restylane Product procedure takes less than an hour, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Because of this, Restylane Product treatment is known as a “lunchtime” procedure. Restylane Product injections can be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment for optimal aesthetic results.

Benefits of Restylane Product Injections

Many patients choose to undergo Restylane Product treatment because it safely and effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for an extended period of time. Wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth seem to disappear following Restylane Product treatment without the need for invasive surgical procedures such as a facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery. Restylane Product can also add volume to lips for a fuller and more sensual pout, and it can be used to shape facial contours. The effects of Restylane Product last for up to twelve months. Because Restylane Product is non-animal based, the risk for an allergic reaction is minimal.

JUVÉDERM™ Products Injectable Gel

At Forma Plastic Surgery, in addition to Restylane Products injections, we offer treatment with JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel as a safe and effective alternative to animal-based dermal fillers. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that helps to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of unsightly facial lines and wrinkles for an extended period of time. Because JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is slowly absorbed by the body, patients who undergo treatment enjoy healthier and younger-looking skin for nine months up to two years. Forma Plastic Surgery offers JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gels (JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC) and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC.

JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel Process

JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is administered in the same way as Restylane Product injections. Because of the smooth consistency of the gel, patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment. The procedure lasts less than an hour and results can be seen immediately. For more information on treatment with JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, contact Forma Plastic Surgery today.
