Restylane®

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face and can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

At Protea Medispa we use Restylane®, by Galderma which replaces lost volume to smooth away wrinkles and define facial contours providing immediate results. Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Restylane can be used to visibly reduce moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, can be used to improve the skin's contour and reduce depressions in the skin due to scars, injury or lines.

You can see potentially dramatic improvements for:

  • Cheek depressions

  • Crow's feet at the corner of your eyes

  • Plumping thin lips

  • Deep smile lines (side of the nose to corners of the mouth)

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

  • Marionette lines at the corners of the mouth

  • Redefining lip border

  • Scars including burns, acne and those caused by wounds

  • 'Smoker's lines'; vertical lines on the mouth

  • Worry lines that run across your forehead

  • Enhancing shallow contours

  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles

  • Reconstruct contour deformities in the face

  • Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
