As many of us will see, fine lines and wrinkles appear as we get older. It’s a sign of ageing, but that doesn’t mean it’s a sign we’re all happy with. Fine lines and wrinkles appear because the rate of our skin’s collagen production slows down and skin loses its fullness, which makes fine lines and wrinkles a lot more prominent and obvious.
At Weybridge Dental Practice, we are able to reduce these signs of ageing with non-invasive dermal fillers. The dermal fillers we use are Restylane and these are carefully administered by our dermal filler experts. Regardless of whether the skin is ageing due to age, sun exposure or dehydration, Restylane works immediately.
What is Restylane?
There are many different types of dermal fillers available and we choose to use Restylane; this is a non-invasive treatment and it helps you to maintain the appearance of younger and more youthful skin. Restylane is administered in very small amounts, as a little goes a long way. It is a clear and biodegradable dermal filler gel created using purified hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is already found in the skin, Restylane simply increases the amount. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep skin looking young by storing water; this boosts volume, elasticity and fullness. Simply, when there is more Restylane, skin is able to resist fine lines and wrinkles.
Expert Dermal Filler Treatments
Lips are one of the first areas on the face to lose volume as we age, which leads to thin lips and an older appearance. Additionally, we move our lips a great deal each and every day; when eating, drinking and talking. This constant movement creates vertical lines. As it isn’t possible to use our lips less, dermal filler treatments are often the most effective way to reduce these lines. Restylane can be used in a variety of areas, but it is most commonly used around the lips. When administered to the areas surrounding the lips, lines and creases are reduced.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers work in a number of different ways in many areas of the face, which makes them a fantastic anti-ageing treatment. This is done by:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and eyebrows, such as scowl lines.
- Adding definition to your cupid’s bow and volume to your lips.
- Reducing vertical lines around your lips, such as the vertical lines that highlight ageing.
- Lightening dark circles under your eyes.
- Reducing the appearance of bony hands by softening them and adding fullness.
