The beauty of Restylane injections Westlake Village CA
As the years go by, your face begins to lose its fullness. Sun exposure, environmental toxins, gravity, hormonal changes, and aging can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your face. As our skin ages, it begins to lose the supple volume it once had, and lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Thankfully, dermal fillers offer a means of reversing the signs of aging in a very natural looking way. Radiesse, Juvederm, Perlane, and Restylane injections are popular choices for patients who want a more youthful look without the invasive surgery and scarring of a face-lift.
Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, offers dermal fillers and many other options to revitalize your facial appearance at her Westlake Village, CA. Skin Care Centre. Dermal fillers are a terrific solution for the aging face and they are popularly used for creases around the mouth, plumping lips, smoothing hollows under the eyes, enhancing facial contours, softening scars, and much more. Restylane was the first hyaluronic acid filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of facial wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in all living beings, but diminishes with age. Replacing the hyaluronic acid with Restylane can restore fullness and volume to deep lines and wrinkles. The filler replaces volume, and is hydrophilic, so it attracts water. The hyaluronic acid binds to the water, increasing the plumping effect to lift and tighten skin. Recent studies have found that Restylane facilitates the formation of new collagen and stops the breakdown of the existing collagen.
Treatment time depends on the size of the area being treated, ranging from 10 minutes to an hour. Many people schedule their appointment during their lunch break, as they can return to normal activity immediately following treatment. An extremely fine needle is used for the Restylane injections, so discomfort is minimal and can be eased with topical anesthetic if needed. There may be moderate swelling and redness after treatment in some cases, but this resolves itself in a few days.
