An Aging Face
As we age, losing volume in our face is inevitable. Many factors contribute to these such as resorption of bone, loss of facial fats, shrinking of our facial muscles coupled with laxity of skin.
Eventually, it leads to a loss of support and all the facial features tend to droop downwards, causing us unsightly lines and areas of hollowing.
What is a HA filler?
HA filler stands for hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our body and its main function is to keep tissues moist and lubricated.
HA Fillers contain purified forms of hyaluronic acid and are used to treat wrinkles as they plump up the skin and face. Results typically last between 9 -18 months.
By depositing them at regions of hollowing, the hollows are eliminated and give a more youthful look.
What areas can be targeted?
The Restylane Range is a good choice. Usually a combination of a harder and a lighter filler gives a more even and natural result.
Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement.
