Genetics, lifestyle, and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) all impact your rate of aging.
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance found in skin that absorbs water in order to keep your skin soft, hydrated, and healthy. Unfortunately, as you grow older the amount of Hyaluronic Acid falls, leading to the loss of the youthful glow, skin elasticity, and hydration that you were accustomed to.
Thankfully, there are dermal fillers composed of Hyaluronic Acid which will revitalize your skin.
One of these dermal fillers is Restylane (a non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid), which is a clear gel that can be injected into your lips, perioral wrinkles (around your lips), marionette lines (from the corners of your mouth down to your jawline), around the corners of your mouth, cheeks, chin, orbital trough (around and under your eyes), and nasolabial folds (smile lines).
Restylane also boosts natural collagen production for restored skin elasticity and a wholesome appearance, making it one of the most popular dermal fillers today.
Dr. Shifrin offers Restylane injections to patients who are looking to:
- Smooth out lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet and frown lines
- Sculpt their jawline, cheeks, nose, and chin
- Fill in deep folds in your skin
- Add volume to hollow areas, orbital troughs, and facial scars
- Enhance the shape and volume of their lips
- Moisturize, hydrate, and lubricate their skin
The duration of Restylane is dependent on your age, lifestyle, and skin type, however, you can expect to experience the effects of this dermal filler for 6 to 12 months, with the exception of the lip treatment which lasts for less than 6 months. The amazing thing about Restylane is that its duration will actually increase after frequent treatment, thanks to the creation of new collagen.
Dr. Sheila Shifrin is highly knowledgeable and skilled in carrying out Restylane injections, and will ensure that you make an informed decision about this treatment.
