Doctor in Jacksonville uses Restylane and other injectable fillers like Perlane, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse, Sculptra, and Artefill for customized rejuvenation
Have you heard the phrase, “20 is the new 40?” There’s a lot of truth to it. Following economic challenges of the last few decades, Americans are working longer. Gallup polls indicate an average retirement age of 57 in 1991. It increased to 60 by 2002 and is currently at 62. Medical advancements allow us to enjoy good health later into life, so we’re staying physically active, dating, and taking advantage of every moment. It’s no wonder that women and men in the Jacksonville area want to look as young as they feel. Dr. Mary Pentel and her aesthetic team at The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology make it possible with customized rejuvenation programs including Restylane and other dermal fillers.
Understanding injectable fillers
Dermal fillers are compounds injected under the skin to add facial volume, smooth out the appearance of wrinkles, or augment lips. There are a number of injectable formulations, each with a specific purpose and appropriate for certain regions of the face. This minimally invasive treatment requires little or no recovery period and carries none of the surgical risks of a facelift. A customized non-surgical program of dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin is an ideal interim treatment –when topical anti-wrinkle preparations are no longer adequate, but you aren’t yet ready for the commitment of surgery.
The Restylane difference
Restylane is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler manufactured by Medicis, a highly respected name in aesthetic medicine. HA is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. It has the distinctive ability to grab many times its own weight in water. That means Restylane works in two ways ways. The product adds immediate plumping. Then it gradually inflates with additional hydration, providing support to skin that has lost volume and elasticity.
Restylane is ideal for laugh lines, droopy corners of the mouth, lipstick lines, and marionettes. The smooth, clear gel formula may also be used to add youthful contour and definition to lips.
In capable hands, injectable fillers are among the safest rejuvenation methods available. However, this is real medical treatment which should be administered by or with the direct oversight of a doctor in a sterile, clinical setting. At The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology your physical well being is the highest priority.
