Patients in Portland can restore lost facial volume with Restylane dermal filler
The aging process involves the breaking down of the skin’s building blocks. This leads to the loss of volume and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Located in Portland, Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive offer the Restylane dermal filler to keep patients looking youthful and refreshed.
Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are building blocks of the skin that help patients maintain their youth. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the skin and delivers moisture, nutrients, and volume. With age, our bodies stop producing as much hyaluronic acid. This is where Restylane becomes important.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a dermal filler made up of hyaluronic acid. When injected into the skin, it adds volume that has been lost naturally. It can be used to fill lines and wrinkles or to add volume to contour the face giving long lasting results. As a thinner, more malleable filler, Restylane is used to treat areas in the lower half of the face:
- Corners of the mouth
- Laugh lines
- Under the eyes
- Marionette lines
Restylane fills in the creases, lines, and folds in the face that have been caused by volume loss with aging. When the mouth loses volume, patients end up with a sad resting face and thinner lips. Restylane can be injected into the lips to produce a fuller pout. Because this filler is soft and flexible, it remains smooth and fluid giving a natural-looking result. Restylane can be injected around the mouth to soften lines around the mouth or to turn up the corners of the lips. It can also be used in the tear troughs under the eyes or along the cheekbones. This gives a more contoured, smooth face while improving the sunken look some patients may experience.
