Juvéderm® and Restylane
Enhance Your Skin Through Restylane and Juvéderm
The war against ageless youth and dermatological problems is far from over. Yet people who deem personal appearance as an important asset may now take comfort in knowing that Restylane and Juvéderm® are here to help fight our battles with age.
You can receive Restylane and Juvéderm® at Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology. Dr. Ross M. Campbell, a Georgia native and former chief resident of Dermatology at Brown Medical School, heads the institution.
To begin with, Restylane and Juvéderm® are clear gels administered with the use of a syringe injected directly beneath the skin’s surface. Restylane and Juvéderm® are made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring acid in the human body specifically found in the dermis of the skin. It is responsible for keeping the skin firm yet supple. Restylane and Juvéderm® have received a seal of approval from the FDA.
Before and After
Upon injection onto the dermal layer, the treated area immediately appears fuller. As the body breaks down Restylane and Juvéderm®, its hyaluronic acid molecules bind together with water molecules. This water-binding action helps maintain the treated area’s full appearance. It also causes a more natural-looking fullness for the treated area.
Restylane and Juvéderm® treatment can last from 6 up to 12 months in some patients. The duration of the treatment would depend on these factors: the patient’s skin condition, the patient’s age, and of course, his or her current health status. Unlike other fillers that may require multiple units at shorter intervals, most patients need only one Restylane and Juvéderm® treatment administration for a particular target area to achieve the desired maximum fullness. Restylane and Juvéderm® leave neither residue nor trace upon being broken down completely in the patient’s body. Restylane and Juvéderm® do not contain any animal proteins so it can be administered immediately without prior allergy tests.
There are known mild side effects caused by Restylane and Juvéderm®. These include redness, bruising or swelling, and tenderness. In some cases, the patients might also experience some mild to moderate pain. But these side effects are only temporary and may last only a few minutes or days after treatment.
Unlike some centers, at Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology the cost of a Restylane and Juvéderm® treatment depends simply on the amount of Restylane and Juvéderm® needed to provide optimal results. This and a wide range of other cosmetic treatments are offered by Dr. Campbell in Athens and at Campbell Dermatology at Cowles Clinic (Lake Oconee) at very practical costs.
