Augmentation of the deeper layers of facial skin is the treatment of contour defects that result from aging, photo damage and trauma.
Treatment consists of an injection of a filler, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes skin surface and replaces soft tissue volume.
Although there are a variety of dermal fillers available in the market, Dr. Soteriou recommends the option of Restylane. Restylane is a clear hyaluronic acid based gel that once injected in the dermis increases in volume. It is a natural substance in the skin and is well tolerated with a low risk of allergic reaction. Restylane is a temporary filler, absorbed by the body over 6-12 months.
Restylane has a broad range of products to allow us to tailor a treatment program to your individual needs. Cheekbones need a filler with big particles to give volume while a smaller particle size filler works better for addressing fine lines.
Restylane focus also to the characteristic of each product in order to fit in each facial anatomic area. Lip filler such as Restylane Kysse is designed to enhance lip volume using a soft and elastic hyaluronic acid compare to Restylane Lyft which is a harder product designed for deeper lines.
Almost every adult can have a treatment with Dermal Fillers, hey should not be used for patients with ongoing skin diseases or infection.
