Medical Aesthetics at The Doctor's In offers two different brands of cosmetic fillers: Juvéderm and Revanesse. Both families of fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring compound found within the skin. When injected in small amounts, HA can help deliver nutrients, add volume, and help the skin to retain moisture and softness. Read on below to discover the differences between Revanesse Lips+ and Juvéderm and which product might be right for you.
Revanesse Lips+™ is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation in patients 22 years of age and older. It is not permanent and results can last for 6-12 months.
