Since this is an all-natural ingredient, there is minimal risk of any allergic reaction.

Juvéderm is considered to be smoother than Restylane and less likely to leave bumps . Juvederm also has 35% more hyaluronic acid and is crossed linked. Juvederm promises to last between 9 months and 12 months. It is said that Juvederm has a tendency to be flattened into the skin tissue over time, and does not provide the lifting effect of Restylane.
