The aging process changes hormones, pulls, tears and wrinkles the skin. Sometimes the change seems to start to happen overnight and can be difficult to keep up with. The face loses natural, youthful fat in the cheeks, underneath the eyes and in the lips, and drags the skin down to the chin and neck area. Thin lips can create more pronounced wrinkles and change the appearance of your facial balance. There are non-invasive treatment solutions, and depending on the cosmetic goals you can set with your dermatologist, your lips can be brought back to life.
Restylane is an injectable filler, designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Lips come in all different shapes and sizes, which means they age differently. Restylane is a formulated filler that can provide subtle enhancements to the upper and lower lips. It can be injected with tailored precision, in order to provide patients with the level of fullness they desire. It is composed of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body. It is found most highly concentrated in the eyes and joints, as it acts as a cushion and hydrating mechanism. As a natural complex sugar that attaches itself to water, hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb more than one-thousand times its own weight. Because hyaluonic acid is naturally produced in the body, it is digested out of the body in a pain-free and gradual way.
Another treatment option in the filler family is Juvederm. Juvederm is made out out of a thicker viscosity than Restylane, which ensure to give plumper and more defined results than Restylane. It’s important to decide with your cosmetic surgeon, which filler is best suited for your face type and lip structure. It’s important to restore balance back to the face, while providing natural and youthful results.
