Restylane Refyne and the Art of Facial Rejuvenation
Even those gifted with great natural beauty in youth can be subject to wrinkles, sagging and thinning skin that come with maturity.
“Aging are not for the weak!” jokes Dr. Miriam Hanson, dermatologist and cosmetic skin care expert at Sanova Dermatology in Austin. Everyone gets older, but we don’t have to accept aging as our grandparents did. We take better care of our bodies and our skin. And for those looking to turn back the clock, new remedies and procedures are available for all of us. “There’s nothing wrong with looking as good as you can for as long as you can,” Dr. Hanson contends.
Our generation has fought back against aging with an admirable determination. And there is no need for the expense, pain, and recovery time of surgical procedures. In fact, surgery is not always the best alternative.
Stretching and re-draping the skin with surgery may smooth out things, but it doesn’t restore the plumpness and depth of youthful skin. Dermal fillers do.
“There are a number of tools we have to address facial flaws caused by the passage of time,” explains Dr. Hanson. “We have great success in restoring volume loss with dermal fillers, especially with Restylane products.
Restylane Refyne is the latest in a family of dermal fillers that contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It is manufactured by Galderma, one of the pioneers in addressing the issues of aging skin. Recently approved by the FDA for use in the United States, Restylane Refyne has been used for years in Europe with great success, and it is available this year at Sanova Dermatology.
You may wonder why there are so many dermal fillers and what makes one different from another. The answer is that there is a certain artistry in using these products that are injected into the face. It’s more than mere skill; it is expertise. Just as an artist uses a variety of paints and brushes, different thicknesses of these injectible gels are used depending on how shallow or deep a wrinkle is, or where it is located. After all, you are a work of art. Restylane Refyne is particularly well-suited to deep furrows in your “laugh lines” and other areas.
“Filler can also be used in conjunction with other products and treatments to achieve the optimal outcome,” says Dr. Hanson. The result is a more natural correction and a youthful looking softness that can last for up to a year.
