Wrinkles are a natural component of the aging process since our skin changes. It thins down, loses fat, and no longer seems as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging starts in your twenties, when skin firmness begins to decline due to both internal (genetics and natural aging) and environmental (sun exposure, smoking, stress, and so on) causes.
WHAT HAPPENS AS WE AGE?
- Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component in your skin that works with collagen and elastin to give fullness and suppleness.
As we age, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin levels decrease, causing skin to lose volume and increasing the likelihood of wrinkles and creases.
With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months in nasolabial folds with Restylane; 10 up to 12 months in the cheeks, up to 6 months in the back of the hands, and up to 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, with Restylane Lyft;3 6 months for lips and perioral rhytids with Restylane Silk;11 and up to 12 months in the facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines) with Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.
Volume in the hands may decline with time as part of the normal aging process, making them seem elderly. It is possible that veins, tendons, and bones may become more apparent.
Depending on your volume needs, most Restylane treatment appointments last less than an hour and begin to work almost immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane products act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid (and eventually break down naturally). Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose.
