Juvéderm and Restylane
Yes it is true, our skin changes as we age. Have you noticed? It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump, lifted and smooth as it once did. How your skin ages depends on your genetics, lifestyle, diet, and personal habits. Your smile lines become deeper, your mouth turns downward, your lips thin, and your cheeks become more flat. With age the collagen and elastin in our skin becomes diminished and disorganized, but there is another component just as important that occurs naturally in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. That substance is called Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic acid also diminishes with age, causing skin to lose volume, while increasing the chance for wrinkles and folds to appear. Lucky for us there is a family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that replaces this volume loss and creates a more natural, youthful appearance. These dermal fillers include Juvederm XC, Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane and Restylane Lyft.
Treatment areas include smile lines, also known as Nasolabial folds; marionette lines; lips; and cheeks. These dermal fillers can last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the product used and the treatment area. Individual results may vary.
All of these dermal fillers can be reversed by an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
