Botox and Beyond: Having the Last Laugh

Botox and Beyond – Having the Last Laugh

Laugh lines and deep wrinkles are far easier to address and with a more natural treatment, thanks to a proven generation of FDA-approved fillers that use NASHA – a natural, non-animal-based substance just like the one your own body produces. Signs of a life well-lived, people nevertheless have sought answers for the fact that sometimes laugh lines tell their story too soon. And timing of course is everything.

FDA approval of Restylane treatment came initially for some of the most hard-to-solve kinds of lines. The FDA approvals of Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne specifically covered the treatment of moderate to severe and even deep facial wrinkles and folds. These categories include the laugh lines (nasolabial folds) that run in deepening grooves from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth. Despite the jolly name, laugh lines proved difficult to address with the measures available previously.

Laugh lines form when the skin loses two of its building blocks – collagen and elastin – with age. Heredity plays a role, too. If your parents, aunts, or uncles have laugh lines, then chances are the laugh lines will come to visit you, too. As with most premature aging, exposure to the sun, smoking, and weight fluctuations can increase your chances of developing laugh lines and the severity of them.

For subtler lines and wrinkles, such as the kind that appear on and around the lips, the same biocompatible filler treatment can be applied, thanks to Restylane Lyft.

A Natural Solution with Flexibility

The seeming magic of Restylane fillers is the result of a breakthrough in producing a substance just like the hyaluronic acid (HA) that our own body produces. Residing in the mid-layer of skin, the dermis, HA provides fullness and volume to the skin. Restylane dermal fillers are compatible, virtually identical in fact, to our skin’s own filler and are readily accepted without reactions.

The Restylane family of dermal fillers, including Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, and Restylane Refyne offer unprecedented flexibility to meet the unique needs of your face, address longtime concerns, and achieve new levels of realistic goals. Even for patients who have hesitated to use the injectable fillers that were available previously, the Restylane family has prompted many to have another look, because of their ability to achieve natural looking results, and because of the flexibility this new kind of injectable gel affords the patient and the professional.
