With age comes wisdom, and those fine lines and wrinkles on your face prove that you have a lifetime of experience on your side. Unfortunately, those signs of aging do little to make you as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that your body produces in abundance when you are young. Over time, however, your body produces less HA and your skin suffers. Lost volume and fullness create lines and wrinkles. By replenishing your skin’s HA, Restylane® makes those lines and wrinkles simply disappear.
Is Restylane® a Good Choice for Me?
With so many dermal fillers on the market, knowing which one is right for you can be a daunting task. Dr. Shumway, with his years of experience with dermal fillers, is able to recognize the specific skin problems that can be remedied with Restylane®. Some patients may not be good candidates for Restylane®, such as people who are not in good health, who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and who have certain medical conditions. If Restylane® is not right for you, Dr. Shumway will advise you about other skin rejuvenation treatments that are perfect for you.
