What Happens As We Age?
As we age, the skin loses fat stores, bone remodels and gravity acts on the skin and muscles causing sagging and loss of volume. This in turn creates fine lines and deepens folds for example either side of the nose (naso-labial folds) and below the corners of the mouth (marionette lines).
Dermal Fillers help to replace volume lost through the effects of gravity and a reduction of collagen elastin and hyalauronic acid in the skin.
Did you know…
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in the human body. In fact, hyalauronic acid is responsible for attracting and holding water within the skin, giving it youthful volume.
Over time, natural hyaluronic acid levels deteriorate, causing the skin to develop lines and appear sunken. Restylane restores hyaluronic acid molecules to the skin, causing it to ‘plump’ and achieve a smoother, more voluminous appearance.
