It’s a part of life — our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, pollution, sleeping positions, etc.) factors.
What happens when we age?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. However, hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear.
The good news is that you can do something about the signs of facial aging with our injectable fillers. Fillers are made of clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.
Not to be confused with Botox, which temporarily paralyzes facial muscles to make wrinkles less apparent, fillers do exactly what their name implies – they fill up wrinkles, making them go away for up to six months.*
In addition to filling wrinkles, these quick treatments (around 30 minutes or less) can also add volume to lips, cheeks and jawlines, once again creating a more youthful look.
Let’s explore the top 3 areas we treat with fillers.
1. Correct Moderate to Severe Facial Wrinkles and Folds
Restylane® helps to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines — the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.*
2. Create Fuller, More Accentuated Lips
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.*
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles.
3. Add Volume and Fullness to the Cheeks
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face.* Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.*
Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
