The Science: Restylane and Juvederm Wrinkle Fillers - Stonington CT
As you get older, your face loses its shape. Over the age of 50, we lose one percent of our collagen each year, which leads to lines and folds in the skin. Restylane® simply restores fullness and provides a smoother contour to the face.
Restylane® and Juvederm are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that are used to provide volume and restore fullness to the skin -- in order to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
Restylane® and Juvederm are both cosmetic dermal fillers made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane® and Juvederm work in two ways: Upon injection into the mid to deep dermis (the dermis is the middle layer of the skin), they add volume and fullness to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. In addition, Restylane® and Juvederm integrate into dermal tissue, then attract and bind to water molecules to help maintain volume.
Dermatologists and plastic surgeons have used Restylane® safely since 1996 worldwide. Because Restylane® is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required. This quality virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction.
The Solution: Wrinkle Reduction with Restylane & Juvederm in Stonington CT
Restylane® or Juvederm is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultra fine needle. After the injection, your physician may gently massage your skin to optimize contouring of the gel. Restylane® or Juvederm is a simple and convenient procedure and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, if you prefer, your physician may anesthetize the treatment area using either a topical gel or a nerve block.
Restylane and Juvederm are used for filling lines and folds around the mouth, the lips, and the cheek hollows. The fillers smooth wrinkles and deep facial folds and enhance the appearance and fullness of lips. These fillers can be combined, during the same treatment session, with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® . Restylane and Juvederm fill lines and skin folds, mostly in the lower one third of the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® smooth wrinkles and creases caused by intense muscular contraction-relaxing the creases in the upper one third of the face.
As with any injection, some common injection-related reactions might occur. The most common side effects are temporary redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site. These typically resolve within two to three days.
The average treatment results last six months or even longer. The products are both FDA approved for 6-18 months duration.
Restylane Silk: softer smoother more subtle filler for lines around the mouth and lips
Restylane Silk, introduced in 2015, is a great addition to how fillers help smooth fine line and wrinkles, particularly those etched in lines around the mouth and the lips. The smaller particle size of the hyaluronic acid in Restylane Silk is designed to allow doctors to place the filler in those very small lines around the mouth, in the lips, and other areas--to achieve a soft, subtle, gently smoother and fuller look.
