Restylane vs Juvederm vs Artefill for Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

May 6, 2008
Hi Dr. Rivkin, I have a couple of questions.
WHen i went in for a free consultation, you said there was something for 800 dollars that would last for about 6 months. What was that again. Also, after that procedure you said I needed to come back within 3 weeks. From the time I get the procedure to my follow up session in 3 weeks, how much will the nose change?

Also, you said there was a catalyst to take the filler out (the one that lasts 6 months) If i like the procedure, can I take the filler out with this procedure and replace it with the permanent filler. This is because I do not live in LA and it will be more convenient if I can get these done whenever I have to be in LA. Thank You.


hi,
the 6 month filler is restylane or perlane or juvederm.
i usually see people back about 2 weeks after the first injection, although if you're from out of town, that is flexible.
the changes in the first 2 weeks are variable - with some people it doesn't go down very much and with some it does and we need a significant touch up.
sure, that is fine to dissolve the HA with enzyme, but i think what makes more sense is to use artefill at the touch up visit. you will need another touch up anyway, and this way within 1 to 2 visits after the first touch up, we can have the permanent effect.
those visits would be separated by several months, of course, as the perlane or restylane underneath the artefill dissolved.
