As we age, different parts of the face lose shape and fullness – leading to wrinkles and a less youthful appearance. In some cases this is because our body is not producing as much hyaluronic acid as it used to. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture, and less of it means that our features begin to sag and droop.
Cheeks will see a loss of collagen and reduction of underlying fat. Decreasing bone volume can cause reduction of volume in the cheeks, making the face look sunken.
Nasolabial folds are the lines around our mouth. With volume loss the skin of our cheeks can drape over making dramatic smile lines, this gives us a “tired looking face”.
Lips – our mouth changes shape as we age, lips can loose shape and small vertical lines (perioral and marionette lines) form around the mouth.
Designed to act like the body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, the Restylane line of products visibly reduces facial wrinkles and folds and adds smooth, silky definition to the lips. Over 20 million treatments have been administered and Restylane has proven to be an excellent option for those seeking a more youthful appearance.
