Juvederm, Restylane


juvedermHave you been looking for a JUVÉDERM® doctor in the Tallahassee, Florida area, or have you been wondering if JUVÉDERM® treatment would be right for you, but didn't know where to go to get your questions answered? At Palmer Eye Institute, we are pleased to offer our patients this popular injectable dermal filler for the treatment of wrinkles.

Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, which treats the dynamic wrinkles in the upper third of the face, JUVÉDERM is used to bring back the natural, youthful volume that is lost as we age. Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as we age, sunlight especially in environments like Florida, as well as other environmental and dietary factors, can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds - like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.

Because JUVÉDERM® is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. And unlike BOTOX which takes a few weeks for maximum results to be achieved, the results from JUVÉDERM are instant! Often referred to as a "lunchtime treatment," JUVÉDERM treatments only take a few moments. You can even make an appointment for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice—and get right back to your daily routine.

RestylaneRestylane is a hyaluronic acid based injectable dermal filler, which lasts about six to nine months. Because it is not animal-based, there is no allergy testing required prior to treatment.  Hyaluronic acid is a protein found in the joints and tissues of all living things. Restylane is soft, holds its shape, and does not form lumps.
