As we age, our skin loses elasticity and volume because the production of collagen
and elastin, the building blocks of the skin, decreases over time. Thinning of the
skin, loss of volume (from acne scars and other scars) and the disappearance of collagen and elastin cause such everyday
facial expressions as frowning or smiling to highlight creases, lines and hollow
areas. Although the aging process is impossible to stop, injectable dermal fillers like Restylane offer an excellent option to reverse the loss of collagen and elastin
by adding volume.
To slow the aging process and counteract the effects of thinning skin, Celibre Medical
uses hyaluronic acid (HA) based injection products such as Restylane to fill in
the areas of the face that have aged from the loss of collagen and elastin. When
considering Restylane injections, it's important to find a practitioner that understands
the concept of "shaping the face". This term is important because
it relates to the process of using dermal fillers, not just to fill creases or lines,
but to reshape the face in a way that returns a youthful appearance.
Restylane is a Hyaluronic acid (HA) product. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally
in the body. In fact, the reason babies skin is so soft is that they have very high
levels of HA when they are born. Hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to absorb
1,000 times its weight in water. Because of this fact, Restylane is able to fill
in an eye wrinkle, crease or even a hollow area in the face by attracting and retaining
water to the area. Restylane is very different from Botox in the way it works.
Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause a wrinkle whereas Restylane
works by bringing water to the area of the face where a wrinkle, line or crease
is present. Restylane is FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles,
lines and creases. It is a proven, safe option for adding volume to aging, thin
Restylane is one of three different hyaluronic acid products that Celibre Medical
uses to provide volume to thinning skin (the other two are Juvederm and Perlane). If you feel that your
skin is losing volume and that you'd like to achieve a smoother, fuller appearance
by providing volume to wrinkles, creases, or hollow areas of the face, contact Celibre
