Volume loss is a natural part of the aging process. As we get older, our skin tends to become lax, and our facial fat pads can droop or diminish entirely. In the past, the only way to correct age-related volume loss was through surgical methods. These days, however, we’re able to reverse visible signs of aging and sun damage with minimally-invasive injectables.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we’re seeing exceptional results for facial volume restoration with the Restylane family of fillers. We offer a wide range of formulas, each designed to tackle your individual problems. Depending on your concerns and goals, you may be better suited for one or more of the following soft tissue fillers.
Restylane is a highly spreadable form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) that is FDA-approved for moderate wrinkle correction. The filler is placed at precise depths below the skin’s surface to instantly plump and hydrate the skin. Restylane is a versatile injectable that can smooth wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The average treatment lasts anywhere from 6-9 months.
Silk is a unique dermal filler that is ideal for treating sensitive areas. The injectable is especially beneficial for lip augmentations for patients who would like to instantly volumize thinning lips. Patients can also greatly improve vertical lip lines with this filler. Optimal results from Restylane Silk can be seen in about 2-weeks with long-lasting results for upwards of 6+ months.
Patients with moderate to severe facial volume loss may benefit best from Restylane Lyft. The robust filler is ideal for significantly plumping and lifting the cheek area. Restylane Lyft also makes a great injectable for those who are seeking to fill in under-eye hollows. The injectable typically lasts about 1-year when used for cheek augmentation.
Restylane Defyne & Refyne
Defyne and Refyne formulas are used to treat more severe wrinkles and folds. Patients with deep dynamic wrinkles such as laugh lines or nasolabial folds tend to be the best candidates for these fillers. Both Restylane Defyne and Refyne can last upwards of 1-year when injected by a skilled provider.
What’s Right for You?
There is no cookie-cutter answer for everyone. While one patient may be able to get the results they want with Defyne, another may be suited for Restylane or Restylane Refyne. Conversely, some patients might be a good fit for multiple injectables for total facial rejuvenation. R.N.,Trish Draper, your injector specialist, will be able to assess your individual concerns and customize a treatment plan to meet your short and long-term goals.
