Facial aging begins in your 20s due to both internal (natural aging and genetics) and external (sun exposure, oxidative stress, etc.) factors. This results in skin laxity and volume loss. Fillers are a great option for enhancing your naturally beautiful features by adding volume that may have deflated over time. Depending on the type of filler, and amount used, results typically last between six and nine months (when fully corrected). However, unlike treatment with neuromodulators, results are seen immediately. With a variety of fillers to choose from, Kristine Romine, MD or Sara Romine, DNP, FNP-C will customize your treatment to optimally treat your concerns. Dr Romine and Sara prefer to maintain very natural results and may use smaller amounts more frequently to optimize your youthful results.
Types of Fillers
Restylane® is a line of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. HA occurs naturally in our skin and aids in delivering nutrients to the skin, which helps your skin retain moisture and softness while adding volume. Restylane® provides natural-looking results by smoothing wrinkles and lines, enhancing lips, and lifting and volumizing cheeks. An often overlooked area of aging, the back of your hands, can also be addressed with Restylane® by adding volume.
Restylane®, a product specifically produced to behave like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, addresses the signs of aging by adding fullness and volume to wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
Restylane® Lyft™, formerly known as Perlane-L®, adds natural-looking volume to your face and now hands! As we age, our natural fat begins to diminish which results in volume loss, sagging skin, and more noticeable wrinkles. Restylane® Lyft™ has been specially formulated to add back your youthful fullness.
