The skin’s natural aging process in combination with sun damage and other factors manifests as changes in the contour of your face. Facial skin loses some of its elasticity and begins to sag. Dermal fillers reverse this sagging by “plumping up” and adding volume to the treated areas.
Among the most effectively treated areas are the nasolabial folds (the smiles lines or “parentheses”) that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, around the mouth/lips, and under the eyes.
Juvéderm™ and Restylane Silk are gels that are injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a fine needle in order to add volume to lift up wrinkles and folds and smooth them out. They consist of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body. When enhancing lips or facial contours, Restylane® Silk and Juvéderm™ add volume and shape to the treated area.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM™ XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results. This filler can help you achieve your ideal smile with the lip shape and size you have been seeking.
