Aging affects every one of us. As we get older, wrinkles and fine lines become a common sight on our once youthful, smooth, and vibrant face. Fortunately, technological advances now allow for facial aesthetic procedures which can reduce visible signs of aging. These facial aesthetic procedures can help minimize unflattering creases and folds in your skin, as well as lines and wrinkles with the use of high-quality dermal fillers and wrinkle-relaxing injections.
Dr. Paryani and the team at Oatlands Dental Lounge have experience in using natural, gentle wrinkle reduction techniques that result in a refreshed and youthful look. Since we are IHAS-registered dentists, we are highly knowledgeable in facial musculature and how it affects your smile and facial features. We use this knowledge to shape your facial aesthetics according to treatment recommendations.
Wrinkle reduction treatments can complement your smile makeover. We offer safe options that apply subtle enhancements to your facial appearance. One such option is Restylane, a high quality dermal filler used for facial aesthetic treatments. Dermal fillers are a natural substitute for the collagen or hyaluronic acid that your skin has lost. Collagen, or hyaluronic acid, is a naturally-occurring substance found in the skin that plays an important role in making skin elastic, firm, hydrated, and wrinkle-free.
What exactly is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear and biodegradable dermal filler gel that contains purified hyaluronic acid. What it does is trap water, which hydrates your skin and helps maintain your skin’s youthful volume, elasticity, and resistance to wrinkles. The process of applying Restylane is non-invasive and no surgery is required. With the use of a syringe and an ultra-fine needle, Restylane is injected in tiny amounts just under the skin. Restylane fills out the spaces that cause wrinkles and lines to develop and gradually plumps up the skin. This in turn gently stretches the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The result is skin that’s moisturized, refreshed, with a youthful glow.
Restylane works by adding structural support to loose facial skin, which occurs as a result of aging, loss of cellular hydration, or over-exposure to sunlight. Dermal fillers are usually applied to enhance lip borders, and to reduce lines and creases on the edge of the lips. This is so because as people age, the lips lose their volume, making them thinner. Also, natural movements such as eating, speaking, or pursing your lips creates vertical lines on the lip tissue. This becomes the area where wrinkles and fine lines are easily visible. With the use of the restorative and rehydrating effects of Restylane dermal filler, these lines and wrinkles are reduced.
Dermal fillers in general, produce immediate, long-lasting, and natural looking enhancement to your skin by performing the following:
