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.
Dr. Sheila 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
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. Sheila Shifrin is highly knowledgeable and skilled in carrying out Restylane® injections, and will ensure that you make an informed decision about this treatment.
You Asked We Answer
What is Restylane® Used for?
Restylane® is a non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid. It’s a clear gel, dermal filler, 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).
How long does Restylane® last?
Restylane® has long lasting effects and its results with full treatment should last 6 to 12 months in nasolabial folds, up to 12 months in the facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial and marionette lines). After this time period the injected Hyaluronic Acid will have been fully absorbed by your body, requiring you to go for another treatment.
