The most common visual signs of aging on the face are fine wrinkles and smile lines, depressions in the skin, and a dull appearance caused by skin that is too thin. Dermal fillers can add volume and smooth out the skin surface by attracting and holding moisture. These fillers are in the form of a gel containing hyaluronic acid. The acid is present naturally in the body, but as we age and mature, we don’t have as much of it in our system. Acid fillers concentrate in the region just beneath the skin and literally plump the surface. We highly recommend Restylane® as the dermal filler of choice for those who desire a smoother skin surface on the face.
Candidates For Restylane®
Restylane® is safe for use unless the individual has known allergic reactions to certain gel compounds or concentrated amounts of hyaluronic acid. The ideal candidate is a mature adult experiencing crow’s feet, smile lines, and enlarged nasolabial folds. These can be corrected with surgery, but many of our clients simply aren’t ready to go under the knife. Restylane® can provide the necessary volume without the need for surgery.
Restylane® won’t diminish the appearance of darkened regions, freckles, or age spots. However, it will minimize the appearance of small, dynamic wrinkles as well as creases near the mouth. It can also help add volume to the lips. In fact, one particular type of Restylane® is specially formulated as a lip filler.
Consultation and Treatment
When we consult with the client, we observe the areas of concern and note the thickness of the skin, the amount of moisture that acts as cushioning support, and whether the wrinkles are dynamic or set. We administer the treatment in specific dosage.
The injection sites are chosen carefully. The hyaluronic acid begins to draw in moisture immediately. Water molecules tend to stick together, so any moisture that the acid attracts will soon increase in volume.
The Restylane® itself is eventually distributed throughout the body, but the added volume continues because the water retention isn’t lessened over the next few months.
Advantages and Benefits
This is a popular treatment method because it doesn’t involve surgery, requires no downtime for the client, and is repeatable on a regular basis. It’s the perfect way to smooth the skin without the need for abrasive resurfacing or chemical peel treatment.
