Aging comes with many benefits, like becoming wiser as you gain new experiences. But it also comes with unwanted side effects, like changes to the texture and appearance of your skin. If you’re looking for a way to manage these unwanted side effects, then our Restylane treatments at Impressions Skin Solutions in Hendersonville, TN can help.
What Issues Can You Treat with Restylane?
Are you unhappy with the way you look? Maybe the natural side effects of aging like skin sagging, wrinkles, and fines lines are making your feel self-conscious about your appearance. If these are issues you’re facing, then getting a dermal filler like Restylane can help.
This filler is actually a collection of fillers that are made with hyaluronic acid. They offer a safe and effective way to help eliminate and diminish some of the cosmetic side effects of aging. Each type of Restylane does something different and can treat a different part of your face. Here’s a close look at each type and how they can help you.
The original type of this filler is used primarily for general use all over the face. It can be used to help treat wrinkles and folds, as well as lines and filling in volume in the mouth area.
If you have dark circles under your eyes, this can age you significantly. They can also make you look very tired. Getting this filler will help add more volume and make your eyes and the area around them look brighter.
Silk and Kysse
If you have thin lips, then you may look very serious. Some people have naturally thin lips, and many people lose volume in their lips because of the aging process. Regardless of which category you fall under, Silk and Kysse can help you.
Getting this filler will help you add more definition to your lips. It will also make your lips larger and fuller for a plumper, more youthful look.
There are some places on your face where it’s more common to get wrinkles than on others. The area around your nose and mouth is especially prone to wrinkling because the skin in this area moves around so much.
Refyne is a great way to treat nasolabial folds or the lines that run from the corners of your nose down to your mouth.
Defyne targets the same area that Refyne does, but it’s better for nasolabial folds that are more severe. This is because Defyne’s formula offers more support, making it a great option for deeper folds on the face.
Along with wrinkles one of the common signs of aging includes a loss of volume in the face. As you’ve gotten older, you’ve probably noticed that your face looks much thinner than it used to. This can give you a gaunt or hollow appearance.
Lyft is a great option if you’re looking to maintain a full and youthful appearance. This is because it will provide volume and definition to the areas of your face that have lost it. This includes your cheeks as well as your temples.
What Exactly Is Restylane?
You know what areas this filler can treat, but what exactly is it and how does it work? This is an injectable filler, which means that it’s applied to the desired areas using a fine and precise needle. The hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in your body, that this filler contains does several things for your skin once it’s been injected.
First and foremost, once it’s been injected it will provide immediate fullness to your face. Hyaluronic acid binds with moisture molecules, which keeps the area hydrated and allows you to enjoy your results for longer. It also helps to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen for even more effective results.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles as We Age?
Your skin changes throughout your life. When you’re young, you have high amounts of the proteins collagen and elastin in your skin, which are what give your skin its structure as well as its ability to smooth back out when the muscles in your face are relaxed. There is also a much higher level of hyaluronic acid in your skin.
But as you get older, you’ll find less and less of these chemicals present. Combine this with repeated facial movements, prolonged unprotected exposure to the sun, and some unhealthy lifestyle choices like frequent drinking or smoking, and your skin will be more prone to damage and wrinkling.
What Happens During Treatment?
If you’re interested in using this line of fillers to help fill in wrinkles and loss of volume, then it’s natural to be curious about the treatment process.
Always make sure you visit a reputable clinic for any type of treatment or procedure. At our clinic, Dr. Dawn Linn and her team will make sure that the process is as safe and comfortable for you as possible.
Before we can set you up with your appointment, we’ll first need to know what your concerns are. Your initial consultation will help us do that. During this time, we’ll go over your medical history as well as discuss what areas you’d like to target and the results you’d like to see.
You’ll also be able to ask any questions about the process. We want you to feel at ease at our clinic, so don’t be afraid to bring up any questions or concerns that you might have.
After your consult, we’ll give you full instructions on how you can prepare for your treatment. It’s very easy to prepare for your appointment. We may ask you to avoid a few things to make sure that your treatment is as effective as it can be.
Some of the things you’ll need to avoid include medications like ibuprofen and aspirin. You might need to stop taking certain supplements. For the day or two before your appointment, you’ll need to avoid drinking any alcohol or smoking.
When you come for your treatment, we’ll begin by getting your skin ready to receive the injections. The first step of this process is carefully cleaning your skin to remove any grime or buildup around the injection sites.
Once the skin has been cleaned, we can begin with the injections. A very fine needle will be used to apply them. The treatment process is very fast and can take less than an hour to complete. After your treatment is done, you’ll be able to leave the clinic immediately.
This is a non-invasive treatment which means it requires minimal downtime. You’ll be able to get back to work as soon as your treatment is complete. To help ensure that your results last, however, there are a few things you’ll need to be mindful of.
You will need to avoid any strenuous activity for the next few days, as well as anything that can make you sweat excessively. You’ll also want to be mindful of avoiding any direct sun exposure.
When Will I See Results?
One of the best parts of getting this treatment is that results will be natural-looking and immediately noticeable as the product takes up space beneath your skin. Full results will become apparent over the next week or so.
How Long Do Results Last?
You can expect your results to last for a long time. The specific amount of time that they last for depends on a few factors. First, it matters what type of Restylane you’ve received. Most people will keep their results for anywhere between 6 to 18 months.
It also depends on how you treat your skin after the injections. If you keep up with a healthy lifestyle and a good skincare routine, then you can expect to enjoy your results even longer.
Am I a Candidate?
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or those under the age of 21 should avoid receiving this treatment.
If you are in good general health and you are concerned about fine lines, loss of fullness, and the appearance of wrinkles on your face, then you could be a good candidate for this filler. It’s a great option for those looking for a natural-looking and long-lasting way of getting rid of common signs of aging.
