It’s normal for your facial tissues to weaken as you get older. In particular, the skin on the middle of your face will start to loosen, and your lips will become thinner and less hydrated. If you live near Coral Gables, Sunny Isles, Miami, or Bay Harbor Islands, you should consider fixing these aesthetic issues by receiving Restylane treatments from Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Aventura, Florida.
How Soon Will You See Results With Restylane?
Some cosmetic treatments will take many months to smooth your wrinkles, lift your sagging skin, and correct other problems. For example, some aesthetic treatments will lift your sagging skin by helping your body create new collagen fibers. Since your body will take time to produce these new cells, your sagging cheeks, lines, and other problems will gradually improve.
Achieving Quick Improvements
Fortunately, Restylane products use a different technique to renew your tissues. Instead of gradually changing the condition of your skin, the dermal fillers in this collection will use a sugar called hyaluronic acid to create quick results. After we inject your fillers in your lips, cheeks, or other areas of your face, you will notice instant changes in your appearance.
Seeing Your Final Results
Since your tissues will have a unique reaction to your filler, you might achieve different results than your friends and family members. However, you will typically need to give your body about ten days to respond to your new filler. During this time, your dermal filler will settle into your face, and you will be able to see the final impact of your injections.
What Facial Features Can Dermal Fillers Improve?
We can inject your dermal filler into a variety of locations on your face.
Achieving plump, well-hydrated lips will make you look more youthful and attractive. When you were in your early twenties, your body naturally created high amounts of hyaluronic acid and collagen. These substances strengthened your lips and maintained volume in this part of your face. As you get older, your body will begin to make less collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over time, your lips will gradually become thinner.
We can use dermal fillers to reverse this change and give you fuller, softer lips. Since your lips are a very mobile part of your face, we will use dermal fillers that contain small particles of hyaluronic acid. The smaller particles in these specialized formulas will plump up your lips without causing your mouth to look stiff or artificial.
Over time, age-related changes in your cheeks will cause your face to look hollow and tired. As your body starts to create lower amounts of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other useful proteins, the skin in the middle area of your face will lose volume. Losing volume in this area can cause you to develop sunken cheeks. In addition, your skin may begin to droop.
We can lift and volumize your cheeks with dermal fillers. Since this area of your face is less mobile, we will typically inject your cheeks with dermal fillers that contain larger particles of hyaluronic acid. These firm, powerful fillers will fix your sunken cheeks and give you a more youthful profile.
Over time, your decreasing collagen levels will cause lines and creases to appear on your face. If you spend a large amount of time in the sun, you will expose your body to ultra-violet rays that cause the collagen and other substances in your skin to degrade more quickly. As your skin continues to weaken, lines will form around your mouth and nose. Scientists call these creases nasolabial folds.
Many of the dermal fillers in our collection can fix these wrinkles by using hyaluronic acid to add volume to your tissues. Plumping and moisturizing your skin will soften the creases around your nose and mouth.
Do I Need To Follow Specific Rules Before I Receive My Injections?
Since you won’t receive general anesthesia during your appointment, you won’t need to make major changes to your life before you receive your injections. However, you can shorten your recovery period and improve your results by following a couple of easy rules.
Adjusting Your Medications
You may need to avoid taking Aleve, Advil, or other blood-thinning medications for seven days. Avoiding these substances will help your tissues quickly recover from your injections.
Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can put extra stress on your body and lengthen your downtime after you get your injections. To avoid this issue, you should not drink beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverages for a couple of days.
Scheduling Your Treatment
In addition to avoiding alcohol, you should not get fillers before you are scheduled to receive a dental treatment. During your teeth cleaning, you will probably need to stretch your face and keep your mouth open for a long time. These movements could impact the placement of your fillers and prevent you from achieving optimal results from your injections.
What Should I Expect During the Injection Process?
It will usually take us about 30 minutes to improve your skin with dermal fillers. We will perform four distinct steps during your injectable treatment.
During the first step of your treatment, we will look at your face and analyze the condition of your cheeks, lips, and other features in this part of your body. We may take photographs of your face or use other specialized techniques to analyze your cosmetic challenges.
Our analysis will allow us to select a suitable dermal filler for you. After we have chosen an injectable product, we may create temporary markings on your skin.
Before we administer your injections, we will clean your face and remove dead skin cells and other debris from your target area. If you are nervous about this treatment or have very sensitive skin, we may apply a numbing agent to your face.
Once your skin is ready, we will inject your filler in your cheeks, lips, or other target locations. This part of your appointment will usually take 15 minutes to complete.
After we have injected a sufficient amount of filler into your face, we will instruct you to leave our office. Since the injection process is very gentle, you will feel calm and relaxed at this point. You will be able to drive yourself back to your house, workplace, or other destination.
Although you will have a very short recovery period, you will need to avoid irritating your treatment area for the next three days. To achieve this goal, you should not expose your face to direct sunlight or stay outside for a long period of time. In addition, you should not use perfumes, insect repellents, or other products that could irritate your skin.
Can Allergies and Health Issues Prevent Me From Using Dermal Fillers?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is contained in your skin and cartilage. As a result, you will probably have a good reaction to all of the products in our collection of dermal fillers. However, we will need to discuss your allergies, skin issues, and other health problems before we inject any of these products into your face.
Talking About Your Allergies
If you have an allergy to the bacterial proteins that are used to make the hyaluronic acid in these products, you will not be able to use these fillers to plump and smooth your skin.
Considering Your Health
In addition, you might not be able to get dermal fillers if you have a history of developing excessive scars or other skin issues. Further, you will not be eligible to use these products if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
Which Dermal Filler Should I Use to Improve My Skin?
The Restylane collection includes a number of dermal fillers that we can use to correct your wrinkles, fill in your sunken cheeks, and fix other aesthetic issues.
If you would like to say goodbye to your sunken cheeks, you should consider using this filler to add volume to your face. Lyft is one of the firmest, strongest fillers in our collection. This product will fill in your hollow cheeks and give your face a rounded, softer appearance. In addition, we can use this powerful product to add volume to the back of your hands.
If you want to augment your lips and smooth away your smile lines, we will recommend using this filler to improve these problems. Silk is a flexible filler that is designed to improve mobile areas of your face in a subtle, natural-looking manner.
Refyne and Defyne
Our Refyne and Defyne dermal fillers are very popular. These injectable products are good at fixing the deep folds and lines that develop near your mouth and nose.
Will My Dermal Filler Change My Appearance for a Long Time?
Your body will process the hyaluronic acid in your chosen filler at a unique rate. In addition, the type of dermal filler that you receive and the facial features that you choose to improve will affect the length of your results. In general, fillers that are placed into mobile areas of your face, like your lips, will last for a shorter amount of time than other fillers.
Achieving Lasting Results
If you receive Silk in your lips, your improvements may last for up six months. If you use Lyft to improve the fullness of your cheeks, the positive changes in your face are likely to last for up to 12 months. Similarly, Refyne and Defyne may improve your wrinkles for up to 12 months.
Maintaining Your Improvements
Once your filler begins to wear off, the improvements in your lips, cheeks, or other facial features will gradually decrease. If you would like to maintain your fuller lips, voluminous cheeks, or wrinkle-free skin, you should visit our office in Aventura for a follow-up appointment. Since all of our dermal fillers last for a long time, you might decide to receive touch-up injections once or twice a year.
Enhance Your Skin
You can improve multiple features on your face by receiving Restylane injections. We can change the size of your lips, lift your cheeks, and smooth away lines and creases on your face. Our dermal fillers will moisturize your skin and give you a youthful, radiant appearance. If you live in Bay Harbor Islands, Coral Gables, Miami, or Sunny Isles you should contact us at Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Aventura, Florida to set up an initial meeting.
