Getting older is not an option, but actually looking older is optional. You have probably begun seeing wrinkles on your face. Although the aging process is inevitable, no one wants to look older prematurely. The good news is that there is a wide range of anti-aging treatment options available to suit every individual need. One option available in Annapolis is Restylane®.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can help fill in lines and wrinkles to create a more youthful look. The treatment is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. In fact, patients typically resume their daily activities immediately after their treatment.
Causes of Aging
Before looking more closely at what Restylane® can do for you, it may be helpful to understand why skin ages in the first place. A consultation with our team in Annapolis will help you understand if it is the right treatment for you and your goals. One of the chief causes of aging skin is the gradual age-related depletion of a substance called hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is an extremely important component of youthful, healthy skin. It has the incredible ability to attract and hold many times its own weight in water molecules. Obviously, this has a thickening and hydrating effect upon your skin.
Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid tends to break down more readily as you grow older. Your body produces less of it, and the amount that you do have is not as resilient. This leads to skin that has a harder time retaining moisture and tends to become thin and prone to the development of lines and wrinkles.
Restylane® to the Rescue
Restylane® is a type of dermal filler that contains a form of hyaluronic acid that can help replace the amount that you have lost due to the aging process or exposure to toxins. It is safe and effective for the minimization of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
The Restylane® treatment process itself involves the injection of a gel. It easily flows into your skin to immediately go to work promoting increased facial volume and the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
