Restore Facial Contours and Plump Lips in Newton and the Boston Area
Volume loss can impact the face in a range of ways. Some people notice hollows forming in the cheek area. Others see creases develop above and below the mouth. Once-plump lips may thin. It’s even possible to deal with all of these changes—and more—at once. Restylane® at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics is a versatile solution that can address any of these problems by restoring vital volume.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is not a single treatment but is a family of injectable cosmetic treatments. Each filler is made with hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient. The moisture-loving molecule is important for adding volume and keeping skin hydrated.
The various fillers in the family have specific roles.
Lyft adds volume to the cheeks, which creates more youthful contours. This also serves to keep facial tissues elevated so they don’t sag and form jowls lower, along the jawline.
Silk is intended for small, subtle boosts. The formula is suited for giving lips more volume and definition, as well as reducing the look of lip lines.
Refyne fills in nasolabial folds that form to the right and left of the mouth, extending up to the sides of the nose. It also works to smooth marionette lines below the mouth.
Like Defyne, Refyne is for facial creases on the lower portion of the face, but its formula is more appropriate for deeper, more dramatic creases.
Restylane® can also be used to smooth out the backs of the hands, where volume loss reveals tendons and veins.
What Is the Newton Restylane® Experience?
Ensuring that Restylane® is the appropriate treatment for you is key to every treatment session. Dr. Holly Happe conducts a full medical history, as well as examines your face for signs of aging, before making any injections.
The specifics of each treatment session will depend on the area or areas targeted for dermal filler, but you can expect an experience shaped by Dr. Happe’s background as a board-certified physician and anesthesiologist. She prioritizes your safety and comfort, even as she carefully positions the injections for customized, natural-looking results.
The added volume will have a noticeable effect as soon as it is injected, though you will have to wait for some slight bruising and swelling to resolve in order to see the final result.
The results can last from six to 18 months, depending on the specific filler chosen and your individual metabolism and other factors.
What Complements Restylane®?
Other dermal fillers available at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics include Juvederm®, Bellafill®, and Sculptra®, each with its own benefits. Dr. Happe can explain the differences in these fillers, as well as how they related to neuromodulators like BOTOX®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Jueveau™. Neuromodulators don’t add volume, but instead calm muscles that fold skin into wrinkles when they contract.
