Popular for their striking results and minimal recovery time, dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®, fill in and smooth the folds and wrinkles that come with advancing age. Dermal fillers offer the advantage of striking results with no recovery time, and now, with the FDA approval of lidocaine use with both Juvederm® and Restylane®, the procedures are even more attractive. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic, which will gently numb the injection site, and make the procedures much more comfortable for the patient. In addition to wrinkle removal, facial fillers are also effective for plumping up lips and correcting scars and depressions; and now that these products can be used with lidocaine, the procedures are easier than ever!
Having a similar wrinkle removing result to facial fillers, Botox® and newer approved Dysport® are cosmetic treatment alternatives, that when injected into the skin, work to relax the underlying wrinkles and depressions.
