In what facial areas is Restylane used for rejuvenation?
Most people begin to lose facial volume in their mid thirties. While they may not realize it, skin is becoming thinner and holding less hydration in deep layers. Fat stores under the skin are naturally reduced. As the years march on muscle tone diminishes, and eventually even bone shrinks. The result is sharper facial definition that allows skin to fold into wrinkles. Dr. Jeanine Downie is helping women and men in the Essex Fells area retain youthful facial contours. She incorporates Restylane, other soft tissue fillers, neuromodulators (Botox), and advanced skin resurfacing techniques into customized rejuvenation plans. Why? Because one product or method simply isn’t right for every face or every need. Here she explains when Restylane is a good choice and why.
Using the right product in the right places
Restylane is ideal for softening the appearance of lines that run from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds) and glabellar lines between the eyebrows. Dr. Downie expertly administers the smooth gel formulation to shape and contour cheeks and chin, and add volume and definition to lips. Restylane’s skin rejuvenation benefits go beyond the face, to the neck, décolletage, and hands.
The science behind Restylane
Restylane is so effective as a dermal filler because it addresses the impact of aging in two ways. Initially injections add immediate volume from the product itself to instantly lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Improvement continues thanks to the science of hyaluronic acid.
HA is found naturally in the eyes, joints, and connective tissues of the human body. The HA in Restylane is similar, but made from non-animal sources, so it is biocompatible with little risk of allergic reaction. HA has the unique capacity to grab and hold many times its own weight in water. It continues to plump tissues from the inside for long lasting enhancement. Duration of results depends on factors such as age, skin type, and lifestyle. Dr. Downie typically recommends touch up injections within 12 months for face and body, and within six months to maintain attractive lip augmentation.
Restylane is FDA approved and has been used in more than 20 million treatments, worldwide.
