The fines lines that form around the mouth and eyes during the early stages of facial aging are commonly referred to as dynamic wrinkles. That’s because these creases are only apparent when the facial muscles are in motion. Deeper creases that develop at the mid-portion of the face, however, are known as static wrinkles. They’re an indication of decreased facial volume and a marked loss in overall skin elasticity. At one time, invasive facelift surgeries were the only treatment for this more advanced form of skin aging. Now, however, consumers in Baltimore can instead rely on the instantly rejuvenating effects of Restylane®.
Restoring Lost Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an important skin-supporting substance that’s found all throughout the body. This acid is naturally-occurring in your skin, joints, and connective tissues. Much like collagenesis or the natural production of collagen, HA production invariably declines you grow older. This is a development that contributes to joint stiffness and soreness, and to the gradual breakdown in the integrity of the skin. The good news is that Restylane® is largely comprised of this very substance. As such, once Restylane® is injected into facial areas with noticeable static wrinkling, it will immediately begin rebuilding the skin from the foundation layer out. It does this by binding itself to local skin cells.
Leave Your Skin Perfectly Hydrated From the Inside Out
A second action occurs after Restylane® has been injected. It is this secondary activity that accounts for the rapid plumping effect that the filler is known for. As the HA within this injectable binds itself to the surrounding skin cells, it additionally starts attracting and collecting water molecules. This, in turn, fills in creases so that the complexion becomes youthful-looking and smooth once more.
Restylane® injections are usually completed within just minutes at our office in Baltimore. During these procedures, very minute amounts of this solution are injected into the treatment area. Once all of the necessary steps have been taken, you’ll be immediately free to go. Best of all, you can instantly resume most all of your regular activities.
