Kiss Your Wrinkles Goodbye
Wrinkle treatment: Restylane and Botox Cosmetic
*originally posted in Long Island Press
There are a lot of easy, quick and safe ways to have the beautiful lips and wrinkle-free skin of fashion models and actresses. Because the mouth can be far more suggestive than the eyes, now might be the ideal time to consider a natural beauty lift for the area around your lips. Years of simple daily expressions like talking and even kissing take their toll. With age, lips become thinner and fine lines form around the borders. Deep grooves around the lips are a real giveaway for smokers.
Yet just one simple treatment with a filler such as Restylane can give you the dramatic result of restoring fullness to soften the lines and folds around the mouth, without any downtime. Restylane is made of NASHA, a non-animal derived hyaluronic acid in a crystal-clear gel. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that attracts water to add supple volume to the skin.
For best results, don’t wait until the last minute. I recommend that you come in two to three weeks before a special day. Treatment can be administered without delay for allergy testing, because there are no animal or human ingredients in Restylane. (You can learn about the non-animal source of Restylane and find complete product information at www.restylaneusa.com.)
As with any injection, the most commonly reported side effects are temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two to three days. Your comfort during and after treatment is our priority.
Restylane is also excellent for lines in the lower half of your face that generally come with age. For the forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyebrows, I recommend Botox Cosmetic. Botox is a quick and simple procedure that relaxes your expression and thereby may even prevent wrinkles from returning. Botox has been used to treat many medical conditions for years.
