Dermal fillers became popular for treatment of skin wrinkles, facial lines and deep folds. Dermal filler treatment helps to ‘fill out’ and ‘smooth away’ away the fine skin lines and imperfections. Restylane enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating renewed softness and revitalizing your appearance. Since Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally occurring in the skin, it does not cause allergies or otherwise react with your body.
Restylane is one of the best universal fillers and it is suitable for deep forehead wrinkles, volume loss in the undereye area, moderate to deep marionette lines and nasolabial folds. It is also safe for filling up depressed acne scars, and it is used as an adjunct to Botox treatment which relaxes facial muscles.
Restylane fills in and smoothes out crow’s feet just below the surface, usually in conjunction with a muscle relaxant like Botox. Restylane is preferred because it is a “soft” filler that will not cause any hard or stretched facial appearance. It usually lasts about eight to twelve months, after which time the area needs to be refilled.
Dermal fillers including Restylane are best used to:
- smooth the lines around your mouth and nose
- enhance the size and shape of your lips
- reduce crow’s feet
- reduce laugh lines
- moderate to deep marionette lines
- fill out your cheeks
- fill out acne scars
Dermal fillers are also effective for increasing fullness of narrow lips, fine lines on the upper and lower lips, enhancing sunken cheeks and can even be used to contour the bridge of the nose. Restylane is an injectable gel which can be administered solely by a trained and licensed medical practitioner.
Dermal Fillers – The Treatment
Collagen is a natural protein that is the main constituent of skin, bones, muscles and ligaments. The number of collagen cells which provide structural support, resilience and shape to our skin reduces over time, causing our skin to lose elasticity and allowing fine lines and wrinkles to develop.
Collagen Replacement Therapy using dermal fillers make it possible to temporarily suspend and even reverse the signs of aging. Following CRT treatment wrinkles are markedly and visibly reduced and lines in the skin repaired. The suppleness, elasticity and tone of the skin is naturally restored with immediately visible results.
