As we age, we start to notice lines, wrinkles and loss of volume in our faces. While this is a perfectly natural occurrence, many of us just don’t want to look older than we feel.
This increase in wrinkles, lines and sagging skin is due to the loss of volume and important substances such as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid or HLA is present in younger skin, but diminishes as we age, and it provides moisture and volume to the skin. Imagine the plum that turns into a prune. That once smooth plum turns into a prune, with all its wrinkles and dryness, as it begins to loose moisture. In effect, that is what is happening to your skin as you age.
Laser Lipo and Vein Center is pleased to offer Restylane ® facial fillers that can help restore lost volume and provide your skin and face with a rejuvenated appearance by boosting levels of HLA. Since its development in Sweden in 1996, Restylane facial fillers ® have helped millions of patients around the world have more youthful looking skin. Restylane facial fillers boost your supply of hyaluronic acid and smooth the signs of aging.

Through Dr. Wright’s experience and artistry, you will see results almost immediately — lines and wrinkles that will lift and smooth, giving you that more youthful look.

How can I avoid an overfilled look with Restylane Facial Fillers ®? I want to have fuller lips but I don’t want that ‘duck bill’ look of overfilled lips. What is the best way to keep my results natural?The most important thing is choosing the right provider. There is nothing that replaces experience and aesthetic judgment. Secondly, it is important to use the smaller molecule size fillers like Restylane® or Juvederm® and not Perlane or Juvederm Ultra Plus. Thirdly, not to put too much in. An experienced injector avoids an overfilled look. Choose your provider carefully and make sure you are comfortable with your consultation before proceeding.
How long should I wait to eat after Restylane® lip injections? Could eating certain things affect my results?There is no predetermined amount of time that you need to wait after lip injections. As long as you are not putting any pressure on the lips, you can eat right away. If you want to be more conservative, then a couple hours is more than enough.
Should I wait to have Restylane® injections to my face if I plan on losing approx. 10 pounds?The only effect that weight loss will have is possibly needing additional filler to restore volume lost. Many of my patients see weight loss first in their face. Existing filler will still give volume where it was injected, but the added weight loss may result in more hollowing and sagging in the face. If you plan to lose weight, you can still have filler injections now to correct lines and hollows, and when you lose weight, you can have a follow-up visit to assess whether more filler would be appropriate.
