Thousand Oaks area dermatologist describes Restylane dermal fillers
As we age, we tend to experience the inevitable signs of aging on our face, including fine lines and wrinkles caused by frowning, smiling, and squinting. Over time, the underlying collagen and fibers that were once very elastic begin to break down. However, patients in the Thousand Oaks area do not need to worry. Restylane can help!
Restylane is hyaluronic acid filler that can be used to add volume to troublesome areas of the face. Similar to other products such as Perlane and Juvéderm, Restylane is safe and effective. We administer Restylane right below the skin’s surface using small injections to address areas of lost volume and depressions, such as acne scars. Restylane can also be used on areas such as underneath the eyes, and around the mouth, as well as to augment the lips.
Dr. Panagotacos offers Restylane fillers for patients who want to achieve a more youthful, rested appearance. Patients can enjoy the results of Restylane injections for several months before requiring additional treatments. This product has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for cosmetic use in the United States.
Patients interested in treatment can start with a consultation appointment at Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D. During this initial visit, patients can learn about the many dermal fillers and injectables available through our practice that can be used to turn back the hands of time. Fillers and injections are best for patients who want to be proactive against the signs of aging but are not ready for invasive procedures such as face lifts and other plastic surgeries. Many patients are appropriate candidates for Restylane injections, and can seek immediate results by visiting a quality dermatologist.
