Emervel® and Restylane® are both dermal filler brands. Dermal fillers in general are injectable gels used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines, and they can also be used to add volume to facial features like the cheeks or lips. If you are considering non-surgical anti-aging treatments in Barrie or Midland, we encourage you to learn more about these fillers.
What is Emervel®?
Emervel® is a family of dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. Consequently, it doesn’t cause the allergic reactions that synthetically made dermal fillers can cause, and the client does not need to undergo an allergy test beforehand.
The Emervel® fillers are versatile products and can be used virtually anywhere on the face to treat wrinkles and fine lines. They can even be used to treat the lines around the eyes. Emervel® can also fill in cheeks and plump up lips. What many people don’t know, however, is that Emervel® products are now re-branded under the Restylane® name.
