Wrinkles, fine lines, and more can be improved with non-surgical facial fillers. Cosmetic dermal fillers available at Miller Cosmetic Surgery are designed to reduce the appearance of age and fatigue on the face, as well as fill out or plump up facial features such as the lips for a more youthful, contoured appearance. Dr. Scott Miller offers the popular Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® treatments for patients who would like to effectively rejuvenate their appearance without the need for surgery and long recovery times.

Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® can help you attain a number of goals and give your face a more refreshed, smoother appearance. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® can be very effective at filling in deep wrinkles and creases along the face, rejuvenating nasolabial folds (lines that appear between the nose and mouth) and marionette lines (fold from the corner of the mouth to the jowls). This injectable facial filler can also be used to add volume and contour to the lips. The two products have subtle differences which can be exploited to achieve optimal results as individual care is customized.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This treatment does not require allergy testing, and therefore there is typically no waiting period necessary before the procedure. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® work by attaching its chemical components to the natural moisture of your body, ultimately rejuvenating the skin and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Dr. Miller will inject Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® in to the areas targeted for treatment with an ultra-fine needle. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the areas before injection to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® treatments usually take no longer than 30 minutes to complete, and only about 15 minutes in most cases. Newer formulations now have anesthetic in the product, resulting in immediate numbing once injected. The injection itself is helped by the topical “freeze”.
Although you can expect some temporary redness and swelling in the target areas after the procedure, most patients are able to resume normal daily routines immediately following Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® treatment. Individuals who are under the age of 18, pregnant, and/or breastfeeding should not undergo Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® treatment; however, Dr. Miller can discuss other options that can offer similar benefits.
Is Restylane safe?
Results from Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® typically last at least six months, and even up to a year or beyond in some cases. You can keep the effects of Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® going even longer with occasional follow-up treatments.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® can be a great way to provide you with significant facial rejuvenation and reduction in the appearance of age and fatigue without the need to undergo surgery. Please contact Dr. Miller for more information on Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® and other injectable cosmetic enhancement options.
