Has aging changed the way your skin looks? If you’re not happy with your appearance as you’ve gotten older, our Restylane treatments at South Lake OBGYN in Clermont, FL can help you feel confident in your skin again.
Where Can You Use Restylane?
If you’ve noticed some significant changes to the way your skin looks and feels as you’ve gotten older, then you’re not alone. It’s natural for your skin to wrinkle and lose volume as you get older. But these normal side effects of aging can cause feelings of self-consciousness.
If you’re looking for a way to manage these side effects of aging and look younger and healthier, then you’ll want to consider Restylane. This is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that will add volume to different parts of your face, smoothing out wrinkles and providing more volume. You can use this treatment in a variety of places. If you have any of the following concerns, this treatment could be exactly what you’re looking for.
As you get older, the skin all over your body will lose volume. However, there are some places where this volume loss is more evident than others. One of the places where you’ll notice a difference is in your cheeks. This will make them look hollower and age your appearance.
One of the side effects of losing volume in your cheeks is the formation of jowls. If you’d like to put more volume into this area and look younger and healthier, then you can use the Lyft formula to target your cheeks.
Laugh lines, also called smile lines or nasolabial folds, are the wrinkles that appear in between your nose and mouth. These wrinkles are due in part to a loss of volume in the area as well as repeated facial movements.
These folds can vary in severity. Because of that, this dermal filler has two different formulas that target this specific area. Refyne is an incredibly effective way of adding volume into the area and smoothing out less severe wrinkles in the area. If you have deeper folds, then Defyne is the perfect formula for you.
Under Eye Bags
Are you finding that the dark circles that have formed under your eyes are aging your appearance? As the area around your eyes loses volume, it becomes more hollow which makes you look older and permanently tired.
If you’d like to get rid of these under-eye bags, then you can use Restylane’s original formula. This will put more volume back into the area, helping it look fuller and plumper and getting rid of the bags that may have formed with age. In turn, you’ll look younger and healthier overall.
Having very thin lips can be a side effect of aging as you lose volume in the area. However, some people simply naturally have thin lips. Whatever the reason is, having very thin lips can have a big impact on your general appearance, and it may not be one that you’re happy with.
This dermal filler has two different formulas that can target your lips. Kysse and Silk both offer effective ways to add volume and fullness to your lips. They can also help your lips look more symmetrical and can add more definition.
When it comes to anti-aging treatment, most people tend to focus on the face. After all, that is where a significant number of wrinkles are. But volume loss and wrinkling don’t just occur on your face. It happens all over your body. And, since your hands move around so much during the day, they’re one of the places where it’s most obvious.
If you’re seeing a significant amount of volume loss and wrinkling in your hands, then you can use Lyft to help put some fullness back into your hands. This will help smooth out any wrinkles and allow your hands to look much more youthful.
What Is Restylane?
This dermal filler can target a wide variety of concerns, which makes it a fantastic option if you’re looking for a younger and healthier appearance. But what exactly is it?
This dermal filler is made with hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. This is a sugar that the human body naturally contains. You’ll find it already present in the skin as well as the eyes and the connective tissues around joints. It’s known for its ability to provide different parts of your body necessary lubrication as well as maintaining moisture.
How Does It Work?
When you receive this injection, then hyaluronic acid will help your skin and overall appearance in a few ways. As soon as you receive your injections, the product will take up space beneath your skin. This will help your skin smooth out and appear fuller.
The hyaluronic acid will also bind to moisture molecules, providing your skin with the hydration it needs to stay healthy and form its natural protective barrier. It will also stimulate your body’s production of collagen, a protein necessary for maintaining the structure and firmness of your skin.
What Is Getting Treatment Like?
When you come to our clinic to receive your treatment for this dermal filler, you can trust that we’ll do everything we can to make your experience the best it can be. Your safety and results are our topmost priorities, and we want you to feel comfortable with your decision to come to us.
Before Your Appointment
The first thing we’ll do is have a consultation with you. We’ll need to do this for several reasons. First, it gives us the chance to get to know you and what your areas of concern are. This will help us determine which formula will be right for you.
It’s also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about the filler or the process as a whole. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have. We’ll be more than happy to answer them. We’ll also discuss your medical history to make sure this is the safest option for you.
Preparing for Your Appointment
Before we can give you the injections, you’ll need to do a few things. We’ll provide you with full instructions before your appointment arrives. To make sure your treatment is both safe and effective, it’s important to follow our instructions.
For the week or so leading up to your appointment, there are a few things you’ll need to be mindful of. Don’t take any medications that can act as blood thinners. This will help prevent bruising. You should also stop drinking and alcohol and smoking for 24 to 48 hours before your appointment.
You can trust the team at our clinic to provide you with safe and effective treatment in a welcoming, clean environment. Before we apply the injections to your desired areas, we’ll start by carefully cleaning the areas where you’ll receive them. This will remove any grime or buildup. We might also apply a small amount of numbing cream to the area to help your treatment stay as comfortable as possible.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the product. We’ll use multiple strategic injections of small amounts of the product. This will ensure that you’re getting the natural-looking results that you want. The entire treatment process will be very fast, and most appointments take less than an hour.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, recovery time is minimal and you should experience very little discomfort. You’ll be able to go back to your everyday activities as long as you are mindful of a few things. Avoid staying out in direct sunlight, and don’t perform any strenuous physical activity or anything else that might make you sweat excessively. You should also continue avoiding alcohol and tobacco.
You’ll see an immediate difference in the way your skin looks as the product takes up space beneath it. Over the next few days, your results will become even more obvious. They’ll last quite a long time too. Most patients find that they can enjoy their results for somewhere between 6 months to 2 years depending on the formula.
