Juvederm Products:How it works: The main ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in the body that gives the skin moisture, volume, and elasticity. As HA gets depleted with age, skin loses volume and wrinkles are more likely to appear. When injected, HA acts like a sponge to attract water into the skin. As a result, it plumps up the area in which it was injected. In addition to producing instant smoothing results, research from 2007 shows that HA injections boost the skin's own production of collagen. That means fewer touch-ups may be needed, and that when it's time for a touch-up, less of the material will be necessary (so repeat treatments should be cheaper). One advantage of HA-based fillers over earlier options is that because HA is found naturally in the body there's no risk of allergic reaction.
How long it lasts: Depending on the material (some are thinner and more "flowy," others thicker, so they can potentially last longer), the effects of Juvéderm can last from 6 months to 18 months before the body gradually absorbs the material. If you're wondering what happens if you don't love your result, fear not: Fillers that contain HA can be partially or completely removed with hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down HA. The XC represents lidocane an anesthetic, to make the injection more comfortable.

Restylane Products- a line of hyaluronic fillers that are popular because they are especially good at delivering natural-looking results. Hyaluronic acid is a miracle substance, one that occurs naturally in the body: not only does it fill out the volume in your skin, but it also helps deliver the nutrients the skin needs to glow.
But what separates Restylane out from the other fillers? Restylane uses a patented NASHA technology, which puts the appropriate particle size to the appropriate treatment.
Smaller particles are used for tiny wrinkles and delicate shaping of the contours of the face.
Restylane Refyne-is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn TechnologyTM that helps correct these lines for a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you're smiling, frowning and even puckering up. Ideal for nasolabial folds and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) $600
Restylane Defyne-Crafted with XpresHAn Technology™,Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions.-$600
Restylane Lyft-a much thicker gel, is used to correct severe wrinkles and folds like the nasolabial folds, as well as volume loss in the cheeks.$600
Restylane Silk-is designed especially to enhance the lips, as it is made with smaller particles than the other products.-$600
How it works: This is another line of products that rely on the immediate smoothing ability of hyaluronic acid. Injections may also stimulate natural collagen production, so fewer touch-ups may be needed and less material necessary when they are.
How long it lasts: Clinical studies found that with "full treatment," which includes one repeat injection, results with Restylane can last up to 18 months. Results in the cheeks last up to a year and up to 6 months in wrinkles and folds with Restylane Lyft. Results in the lips last up to 6 months with Restylane Silk.
What it can do: Sculptra initially was used in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) who had loss of facial fat. Now it's approved for cosmetic use in people who aren't infected with HIV to build up cheeks, fill in hollows or sunken areas of the face, and increase skin thickness to diminish the appearance of folds and lines. It is not injected into the lips or used around the eyes.
How it works: The active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic compound that encourages the formation of new collagen. For this reason, it takes several treatments, about four to six weeks apart, for results to become obvious. The number of treatments a person needs will depend on the extent of facial aging. $650 vial
How long it lasts: In a clinical study published in 2011, the effects of Sculptra lasted up to two years after the first treatment session was completed (an average of three injections).
