Restylane/Juvederm

Overview:

These fully synthetic hyaluronic acid compounds fill facial lines and other areas of volume loss. Our body's own enzyme hyaluronidase degrades them over time. The difference between Restylane and Juvederm is the amount of cross-linked hyaluronic acid which causes small differences in downtime and durability.

Expected results:

Correction of static intermediate and deep lines, lip augmentation, treatment of dark circles under the eyes from volume loss, correction of scars.

Preparations:

Avoidance of aspirin and ibuprofen for 10 days. Local anesthesia by injection makes the procedure more comfortable.

Post treatment instructions:

Avoidance of aspirin or ibuprofen for 3 days.

Time to desired results:

3-10 days.

Duration of desired effects:

6-9 months.

Contraindications:

Allergy to hyaluronic acid (extremely rare)

Downtime:

3-10 days of swelling, redness and possible bruising in treated areas (may last longer on the lower lids or lip).

I have been to a number of derm docs....often it seems as though they have you try this or that but never seem to have a clear plan as to how they will treat ALL of the issues at hand. Thank you for taking the time to address each one of my concerns.

There is nothing I can even think of! Wonderful Staff!!

I have a suggestion: I noticed that two of the lovely rugs pose hazards to patients using walkers or who may have other mobility issues. The large rug placed at an angle and the narrow rug placed in front of the reception desk leave no room for these individuals to safely manuveur around the reception area and are likely to contribute to fall risks. I would suggest leaving these areas clear.

#92010-10-04 12:14:56

I think that you should just mkae the vists a little bit quicker, and thats all.
