Hyaluronic acid, produced naturally by the body, contributes to that youthful appearance by holding moisture in the skin. As you age, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, losing its structure and volume. These changes result in wrinkles and folds around the eyes, mouth and other areas of face.
If you want to restore your youthful appearance, talk with your dermatologist about Restylane®.
This dermal filler fits a variety of facial rejuvenation needs with several formulations. The foundation of Restylane® is a clear gel containing hyaluronic acid. More than a decade of satisfied patients in over 65 countries, representing more than 10 million treatments, attest to the safety and results of Restylane®. Ninety-five percent or more saw improvement in moderate to severe facial folds; enhancement that lasted up to 18 months.
Restylane® therapy is indicated for medium to deep facial wrinkles such as:
- “Laugh lines” from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth,
- “Lipstick lines” or “smokers lines,” the fine lines around the lips,
- “Marionettes,” in the area from the mouth to the jaw line,
- Cheeks and “tear troughs,” the hollows around the eyes, and more!
Looking to refresh your look? Contact the professionals at Sanova Dermatology. They’ll begin with a discussion of your health and medical history, and an examination of your facial structure. After learning about your cosmetic goals, our dermatologists will help you decide if Restylane® is your best option.
The treatment session is brief, typically with little or no downtime. However, the doctor will talk with you about the possibility of after-effects. Though minor and temporary, they can include some swelling, bruising or redness, or mild tenderness. He’ll explain ways you can prepare for your treatment to minimize the chance of reaction, and how Restylane-L®, a formulation including lidocaine (a local anesthetic) can provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment.
With a treatment plan that includes periodic follow-ups, you can maintain your fresh, natural look indefinitely!
