Selfies are so popular, and as the subject, we are so concerned with how we look, it’s no wonder many people are trying to improve the look of their faces. Unfortunately, as we grow older, the natural network of collagen fibers that support the connective tissue on our face starts to degrade. As a result, we are more susceptible to lines, wrinkles, and hollows. We can do many things to slow down the aging process, like diet and lifestyle, but still, we age.
When your try to keep your face looking younger and firmer, dermal fillers are great treatment options. Dermal fillers are often made up of organic chemicals that take on the form of a moldable gel. These gels are injected into lines, wrinkles, and hollows to fill them out and add volume to the face. Treatment areas that are the most popular include the eyes, lips, cheeks, and jawline.
There are many dermal fillers, each made from different ingredients and manufactured for a specific purpose.
What are fillers made from?
A modified form of calcium hydroxyapatite, or a naturally occurring substance, makes up 70 percent of your bones. It is well tolerated and can be used as a gel to fill creases, enhance volume, and create the appearance of fullness.
Hyaluronic acid is part of the naturally occurring compounds known as glycosaminoglycans and is well-received as a water-absorbent gel. HA is injected beneath the skin to improve contours. It also fills in depressions and hallows and is useful in treating fine lines and wrinkles. HA is often used in clinical settings to improve the appearance of scars and other injuries. Unfortunately, the body gradually removes hyaluronic acid over time. As a result, treatments will occasionally have to be repeated.
Polylactic acid is an organic compound derived from sugar beets or corn and is a biopolymer. It is used in injectable fillers to act as a scaffold for the skin. The presence of polylactic acid induces the body to produce collagen, giving the skin shape and firmness. Polylactic acid also fills in laugh lines, plumps lips, and provides structure and fullness to deep nasolabial folds. In addition, polylactic acid stimulates collagen growth, but there is a waiting period after treatment before you see results.

THE RESTYLANE LINE is FDA-approved and is a clear gel formulated of hyaluronic acid that acts like your body’s naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane product is manufactured for a specific use.
Restylane includes products that smooth away facial wrinkles and folds (Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne). Gels that give subtle lip enhancement (Restylane, Restylane Silk). Smooth the lines around the mouth or nasolabial folds (Restylane Silk). Add lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft). In addition, Restylane reverses the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands (Restylane Lyft).
Restylane is administered through a fine needle or blunt micro-cannula to fill wrinkles, shape the face and lips, add volume, and rejuvenate your skin. After injections, the areas may be gently massaged to even out the results.
The treatment takes about 15-45 minutes, depending on the treatment areas. There are times when a touch-up treatment is performed about two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize the results.
Restylane products are non-permanent injectables, and the effect gradually diminishes with time. Therefore, your first application and follow-up treatment should last about 12 months.
