The difference between the two is in the molecular structure of the hyaluronic acid; with Juvederm, it is slightly more “water-thirsty” than Restylane. It therefore appears to have a longer half life and duration of effect.
We wanted to wait and make sure that Juvederm is just as effective and safe as Restylane, and it appears that It is. I have already contacted the Juvederm rep and have ordered some Juvederm for the office, so I will be offering Juvederm in the future in our Modesto Plastic Surgery office.
Juvederm is offered by Allergan
