Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler, which is commonly used, in noninvasive cosmetic procedures. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most common components of human skin. Filling agents utilizing hyaluronic acid therefore feel natural with virtually no allergic reactions.
Restylane is the one of the most frequently used fillers and is commonly used as to augment lips. Medicis, the company that distributes Restylane, recently made some improvements to the product. First, they have introduced a larger (2 mls) syringe, which can allow patients wanting significant lip augmentation to do so at a lesser cost. Second, the company has introduced Restylane with lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic designed to limit patient discomfort during the procedure.
Other than bruising and minimal discomfort with the procedure, there are minimal side effects with Restylane lip augmentation. The results typically last from 6-12 months.

Allergan introduced Juvederm XC several months ago. It combines the traditional hyaluronic acid filler Juvéderm with 0.3% lidocaine. Because of the even mixture of the lidocaine into the filling agent, it provides a much less painful experience for patients than traditional forms of Juvéderm or Restylane.
Pricing is similar to that of standard Juvéderm,. It is an effective treatment for improvement of the lower eyelids and tear troughs, nasolabial folds (marionette lines), and augmentation of the lips.
Should you have any questions regarding this or any other dermal filler, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Jejurikar’s office at 214-827-2814.

Juvéderm is the most frequently used dermal filler and is commonly used as a lip plumper. Patients receive topical anesthesia with numbing ointment placed over their lips. In some cases, Dr. Jejurikar augments this with a series of lidocaine injections within the mouth to completely numb the lower one-third of the face. Juvederm is then injected directly into the lips over a span of 10-15 minutes, creating full, plump lips immediately..
Other than bruising and minimal discomfort with the procedure, there are virtually no side effects with Juvederm lip augmentation. The results typically last from 6-12 months.
