If you’re not happy with the changes aging has caused to your skin, don’t think that you have to put up with them. At DrYoungForever in San Antonio, TX, our Restylane treatments can help you get younger, healthier-looking skin that will make you feel more confident.
How Long Does Restylane Last?
Changes in the way your skin looks are a natural part of the aging process. But that doesn’t mean they’re changes you like. You may find more wrinkles forming, or that your face looks thinner and your skin is beginning to sag. If these changes are making your feel self-conscious, then getting Restylane treatments can help.
This is a collection of dermal fillers, all of which will provide you with effective and long-lasting results. Your results will depend on the type that you get as well as you as an individual. However, most patients are able to enjoy their results from this treatment for anywhere between 6 to 18 months, making it a great option for candidates who want something long-lasting.
Why Does Skin Change?
Understanding the way that these dermal fillers work starts with understanding your skin. When you’re young, your skin is supple and elastic, able to “snap back” into place after you’ve made facial expressions. That’s because it’s made up of chemicals like hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen.
While these chemicals may be in abundance when you’re young, their levels lower significantly as you get older. This results in your skin being more prone to wrinkling and sagging. You’ll also notice volume loss.
What Does Restylane Do?
This is a collection of dermal fillers that are made with hyaluronic acid as their main ingredients. As you already know, hyaluronic acid is an important component of your skin. By injecting it into your skin, you’ll be able to smooth out wrinkles and add more volume to different areas of your skin.
Once the hyaluronic acid has been injected into your skin, it immediately takes up space, tightening and firming the skin on top. The hyaluronic acid also attracts moisture, helping to keep your skin hydrated and allowing you to maintain your results for longer. The other benefit of this ingredient is that it stimulates your body’s production of collagen.
What Concerns Can It Treat?
If you’re thinking about getting one of the dermal fillers in this collection, the type that you receive will depend on what your desired results are. When you come to our clinic to receive your treatment, we’ll discuss what your concerns are. This will help us determine which type of this filler is right for you.
These are a few of the areas that you can target with these dermal fillers.
As your skin loses its natural levels of hyaluronic acid, you’ll notice that your face loses volume, looking thinner and aging your appearance. While this volume loss occurs all over your face, there are some areas where it’s more obvious than others. One of the areas where it’s the most noticeable is your cheeks.
Hollow cheeks can make you look older, and you may look pretty unhealthy. The Lyft formula is designed to add volume back into this specific area, helping you look younger. Doing this will also lift any sagging skin which will get rid of jowls.
While the cheeks are one of the most obvious places where you’ll see volume loss in your face, there are other areas where it can be evident as well. If you’ve noticed that the area under your eyes is looking hollow or that bags are forming, this is probably a result of volume loss.
Eye bags can make you look tired and sickly. If you’re looking to get rid of this unwanted hollowness, then you can use this filler’s original formula to target the area. Your eyes will look brighter, more alert, and you’ll look much younger.
Also called nasolabial folds or smile lines, these wrinkles are the vertical lines that run from your nose towards your mouth. They are caused by a loss of volume as well as a loss of elasticity in your skin. They can make you look significantly older than you are.
These folds can vary in deepness, which is why there are two different formulas for this area. If your wrinkles are not especially severe, then you can get Refyne to help fill them in. If your wrinkles are rather deep, then Defyne is the perfect formula for your concerns.
Your lips play a big role in your overall appearance. If you have very thin lips, then you might look more serious than you really are. You may naturally have thin lips, or you might have lost volume in them with age. Either way, you may not be satisfied with the way they look.
If you’d like fuller lips, then the Silk or Kysse formulas can help you. Both formulas are also a great way to add definition to your lips and help them look more even if you have asymmetrical lips.
When it comes to wrinkles and volume loss, most people focus on the face. But your face isn’t the only place where these side effects of aging show up. One of the other prominent places where you’ll notice wrinkling and sagging is your hands. If you want to make sure your hands look as youthful as your face, then there’s a formula for you.
Lyft can help add volume to your cheeks as well as your hands. When you receive this formula, you’ll find that your hands look much fuller and that the wrinkles that may have begun to appear are smoothed out.
What Happens During Treatment?
Are you considering getting this filler to treat your aging concerns? When you come to our clinic, you’ll know that you’re receiving your treatment from a team dedicated to your comfort, safety, and results.
Before you are able to receive your injections, you’ll need to see us for a consultation. This is an important part of the process since it helps you set realistic expectations and allows us to discuss what your concerns are. Once we know what areas you’d like treated, we’ll be able to determine which types of Restylane should be used.
We’ll also go over your medical history to make sure that this is the right treatment for you. Once we’ve determined that this treatment will be effective for your needs, we’ll set you up with your appointment and provide you with instructions on how to prepare.
Getting Ready for Treatment
Your instructions will be simple and easy to follow. It’s important that you follow them to make sure that your treatment is both safe and effective. There are just a few things to be mindful of during the week leading up to your appointment.
Make sure that you are not taking any medications that could cause your blood to thin out. This will help prevent bruising. You should also avoid smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol for 24 to 48 hours before your treatment.
We will do everything we can to make your experience the best that it can be when you come to our clinic. Before we apply the injections, we’ll start by cleaning your skin to remove any dirt or oils that may have accumulated.
Once your skin is cleaned, we can start applying the injections. We’ll inject small amounts of the product at a time to make sure you get the natural-looking results you want. Your entire appointment should take less than an hour, and you’ll be able to leave immediately afterward.
After Your Treatment
Because this treatment is non-invasive, there is essentially no recovery time necessary. You’ll be able to get back to your busy life as long as you are careful of a few things.
Make sure that you continue avoiding alcohol and tobacco for the next few days. You should also stay out of direct sunlight, and keep from performing any activities that could cause excessive sweating. Other than that, you can resume your normal activities.
