Any cosmetic professional will tell you that losing volume in your face as you get older is normal. It is normal to expect that your body is going to produce less collagen and facial fat. However, when you look in the mirror and you see the way your face looks now compared to how it looked when you were younger, you find yourself wanting to reverse the clock.
As your skin gets older, it loses its elasticity. This is why you get wrinkles. The loss of facial volume is one of the reasons why you lose facial definition in different parts of your face. Just because this is a normal process does not mean that it is a process you must live with. There are nonsurgical treatments that are designed to help you retain and restore your facial volume.
Restylane® is a nonsurgical injectable that is derived from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is something that naturally occurs in every single person. Hyaluronic acid is what allows your face to retain moisture. It’s what gives your face volume. When injected into your problem areas, it can give your skin a more youthful and plump appearance.
As you get older, your body makes less hyaluronic acid. So your face is not able to hold onto moisture like it could before. Restylane® not only restores your facial volume, but they act to encourage your body to produce more hyaluronic acid. This can help fill out wrinkles and fine lines.
Of course, using dermal fillers is not a permanent fix. Dermal fillers cannot permanently stop the aging process. This means that if you love your results, you will need to have a few follow-up treatments.
One of the nice things about using dermal fillers to undo facial volume loss is that the entire procedure is simple. In less than thirty minutes your facial volume can be restored. The results are immediate. Since it is a nonsurgical procedure, after having facial fillers injected, you are able to go right back to your everyday activities as if nothing had happened.
