Injectable Fillers — Fort Lauderdale Hyaluronic Acid

Published on September 21, 2015

Both Juvederm XC and Restylane are FDA-approved hyaluronic-acid injectable fillers that can be conveniently injected under the skin. Both are known to provide lasting results. There are minor technical differences between these hyaluronic-based products.

Restylane is a more cohesive injectable filler that usually does not migrate. Once it is injected into the tissues, it must be molded.

When small amounts are injected, Juvederm XC is less likely to form a bump, because it quickly diffuses in the tissue. This is an advantage for doctors who are not prepared to mold and work with the filler once it is in the tissue. This is also why it works well with reducing wrinkles.

The cohesive properties of Restylane make it an ideal filler for regions such as around the lower eyelids and under the eyes. Juvederm is not ideal for this region, as it may migrate. This does not happen with Restylane.
