You’ve probably noticed your skin changing as you’ve aged. Do you want to treat common side effects of aging like smile lines in a safe and effective way? Our Restylane treatments at the Laser Center of Marin in Corte Madera, CA are the perfect solution.
How Long Does Restylane Last?
Even though wrinkles and a loss of fullness in your face are normal as you age, you may not notice these changes in your skin. If you do not like the way you look after these changes, you may want to consider dermal fillers.
You’re going to love the natural-looking results of this injectable filler. Keeping up with your skincare routine and following our easy instructions will ensure that your results will last you for up to a year.
What Is Restylane?
This line of dermal fillers offers Refyne and many other products as part of its lineup. In addition to helping your face appear fuller and smoothing wrinkles, these fillers can also encourage your skin to remain firm and supple.
These products address different concerns and areas of the face. With Refyne, you can target your smile lines or the lines that appear between your nose and mouth. As a result, these lines will be smoothed out for a more youthful appearance.
How Does It Work?
Hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in all Restylane products. The body produces this sugar naturally in many places. Skin, joints, and eyes all contain it, as well as the connective tissues around them.
When you’re young, your skin contains a lot of hyaluronic acid, helping it retain moisture. With age, however, it becomes less abundant. Your skin will look fuller and younger with the addition of hyaluronic acid in this dermal filler.
Types of Restylane
If you are considering this line of dermal fillers,m you might be wondering what the various varieties are capable of doing for you. If you want a more youthful appearance around your lips and nose, you can receive Restylane Refyne, and there are other Restylane products that work throughout the face.
See what else is in the lineup and what they can do for you:
Like Refyne, Defyne is specifically designed for treating your nasolabial folds, aka smile lines. A mild or moderate smile line is best treated with Refyne. Your dermatologist may recommend Defyne if you have deeper wrinkles.
In order to reduce the lines around your nose and mouth, this filler will add significantly more volume to those areas. Hyaluronic acid also promotes collagen production in your body. This protein helps your skin remain elastic and firm, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Restylane’s original formula is designed to treat a variety of facial areas. You can use it to reduce the severity and appearance of wrinkles and folds on your face. Using it on your lips will make them look fuller and plumper.
Getting rid of tear troughs is another benefit of the original Restylane formula. The skin around your eyes tends to be thinner than other parts of your face, so changes to the skin are more visible there. You will look brighter and younger if you fill in these tear troughs or dark undereye circles.
The skin on your face loses volume as you age. You can see this most clearly in your cheeks. As you age, your cheeks appear thinner.
Lyft injections might be the answer if you’d like to add some fullness back to your cheeks. Your cheeks will look more youthful with this formula. Additionally, it will lift sagging skin, preventing the formation of jowls.
Lip injections are approved for use with this injectable. There are a number of reasons why you might want to alter the appearance of your lips. Your overall facial appearance might be impacted if you have thin lips. Asymmetrical or uneven lips can also negatively impact your appearance.
Getting Silk injections may provide the solution you’re looking for if you have any of these lip-related concerns. Silk plumps up and defines your lips, and it makes them look more youthful and fuller.
Can these dermal fillers provide you with a long-term solution to your wrinkle problem? How does it work? Finding a qualified practitioner who can provide you with the type of cosmetic treatment you need is imperative. We have highly trained practitioners who are able to apply your dermal fillers in a way that is easy, painless, and very effective.
Equally important as medical skill is the artistic skill needed to properly place the fillers so that you look natural. This is a priority for our team.
The first step in your treatment is a consultation. We will consult with you about your areas of concern, your goals, your general health, and your treatment expectations. Through this consultation, we’ll help you decide if this is the right treatment for your needs. In some cases, another treatment might be the best option.
As part of our consultation, we’ll take a look at your medical records and current health considerations. We’ll help you decide if this is the right treatment, but we’ll also take this time to answer any questions you have about treatment. We’re more than happy to talk about anything you want to discuss, so don’t be afraid to bring up any concerns or ask any questions.
Preparing for Your Treatment
The next step is to prepare for your injections, and this is a simple process. There isn’t much you need to do to get ready for treatment, and the few things we’ll ask you to do are all designed to ensure your treatment is successful and effective. Before your treatment, we’ll provide you with a full set of instructions, but there are a few generalities that apply to everyone.
For example, during the week before your appointment, you’ll need to avoid medication that thin your blood. These might be over-the-counter products like St. John’s Wort, aspirin, or ibuprofen, or they could be prescription medications. If you’re taking prescriptions that thin the blood, we’ll advise you to talk to your doctor about whether it’s safe to stop taking these meds for a short time so you can receive treatment.
You should also avoid alcohol and nicotine during the week prior to your treatment. Both of these will thin your blood and compromise your body’s ability to make the best use of your treatment.
When you arrive at our clinic on the day of your treatment, you can expect to find a clean, safe environment led by a team of people who are devoted to helping you. Our first step will be to carefully clean the area around your treatment site to ensure complete sterilization. If you have any questions that have come up since your initial consultation, we’ll be happy to answer them at this time.
The next step will be to prepare your skin by applying a small amount of numbing cream. This ensures that you’re perfectly comfortable during the whole treatment. We’ll then apply the product a bit at a time to all your areas of concern. The goal is to get the natural results you want. The whole thing takes less than an hour, and once it’s over, you’re free to return to your normal life and schedule. There’s no downtime required, and no need to avoid your regular routine. The only thing you need to do is protect your skin from the sun for a while and avoid extreme heat, such as you might experience in a sauna.
Some results will appear immediately, and your final results should appear within just a day or two. You can expect these results to last for months and up to a year. Once they start to fade, you can simply schedule a follow-up treatment to keep your results seamless. We can help you determine when is the right time for your next treatment.
After each treatment, be sure to follow all instructions to get the best and longest-lasting results.
