As the natural process of aging is underway, the youthful appearance that was enjoyed for many years slowly begins to fade and in its place are fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and sagging skin, which causes many people to look so much older than they feel. This increase in wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin is due to a loss of volume and the production of substances such as hyaluronic acid that is present in younger skin but slows in its growth with age.
Though there are plenty of over-the-counter creams and ointments available that promise to slow the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles, most aren’t very effective, especially if they are relied upon after the lines have already appeared. At the Skin & Vein Center, we offer a wide range of facial fillers to help restore much of what has been lost. Facial fillers can help restore volume and provide skin with a renewed appearance and a boost of moisture.
Restylane® fillers are among the most popular facial fillers available today and have been used by hundreds of cosmetic surgeons the world over to help plump up lines and wrinkles of countless patients. Millions of patients have enjoyed more youthful looking skin thanks to these fillers, which work to boost the supply of hyaluronic acid found within the skin.
Restylane® fillers can significantly reduce the appearance of lines between the eyebrows, erase worry and smile lines, fade nasolabial folds and laugh lines, and diminish the appearance of crow’s feet. Restylane® lip volume enhancements are another popular use. Injections of Restylane® for lips at the Skin & Vein Center generally take no longer than a half hour to an hour to administer and are injected using a very fine needle so that patients experience little to no discomfort whatsoever. Results are noticed almost immediately and patients are able to return to their normal activities directly following their treatment session.
At the Skin & Vein Center, we specialize in treating patients with a number of skin related issues, and wrinkles and fine lines are among the most common complaints our patients have. We offer facial fillers to patients who want to feel more comfortable in their own skin and more confident when they look in the mirror.
