SKIN AND AGING
It's a part of life—our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors including your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and personal habits.
What happens as we age?
- Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity1
- As we age, skin loses HA
- As HA diminishes, skin loses volume, increasing chances for wrinkles and folds to appear
The good news is that you can do something about it. You can use products in the Restylane® family to reveal a younger-looking you.
Products in the Restylane family are used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane is also the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
