There are many factors that contribute to skin aging, one of which is a loss of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in skin that keeps the skin hydrated and firm by absorbing and holding on to water molecules between the cells of skin (the intracellular space). As we age, hyaluronic acid is gradually lost from the skin, and as a result, skin develops wrinkles and folds. The good news is you can do something about it. You can use the Restylane family of fillers – Restylane Silk, Perlane, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne – to reveal a younger-looking you.
The Restylane® family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane and Perlane-L), Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne. These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). The Restylane® family can also be used in other moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as lipstick lines—the area just below the nose and above the upper lip; the corners of the mouth; and marionette lines—the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline. The Restylane® family of products are made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. Biocompatible with the human body, these products are eventually broken down naturally.
