The basic technology behind the majority of fillers on the market is the same. Start by synthesizing the hyaluronic acid molecule that is found naturally in your body’s skin, eyes, and joints and then refine it into a stable substance that can be sterilely injected under the skin. Next add special qualities to each product that make it uniquely appropriate for different facial structures based on pliability, elasticity and density. By using this recipe, Restylane products provide a solution that is three-fold: the filler product itself adds volume to the area it is injected; it then attracts water to the site to enhance the effect; and in the long term, the disruption of the tissue causes your own body to produce more collagen and elastin resulting in plumper, smoother skin.
The Restylane® difference comes in the form of their patented XpresHAn Technology™ for flexible movement and natural-looking volume. In practical terms, this means that their injectables are designed to mimic your facial expressions so that while your friends and family might notice that you looked refreshed, you are the only one who knows you’ve been to see our aesthetic team. The selection of Restylane® products include Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Kysse, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne, and Restylane® Contour. The products are aptly named to reflect their specific purpose and have all been put through rigorous testing to ensure their safety and efficacy. 92% of Restylane® realself reviewers rate their products as “worth it” and 95% of subjects in a clinical study with Restylane® reported that they still saw improvements 18 months after their initial treatment. In the hands of expert injectors you can anticipate dermal filler results that are subtle but notable and sustainable (with a little touch up here and there).
The doctors and PAs who specialize in dermal filler injections at Bryn Mawr Dermatology will take the time to assess your concerns and recommend the perfect treatment plan to achieve your goals. Oftentimes a combination of products and procedures is best, and the options can definitely seem daunting. Rest assured that with dozens of cumulative years of experience our injectors will be able to select from the many tools they have access to and implement them to best suit your needs. They will use techniques that have been on the market for decades, and new tricks they have picked up at the many injector training courses they have attended and hosted. Your expert will assess your face as a whole to ensure that you achieve optimal balance and symmetry, and will make sure to focus on your personal goals. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology Dr. Christine Stanko and her team are thoroughly invested in each of their patients and creating the most natural results possible. We always want you to look like you, just a slightly younger, fresher, better-rested you. Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from achieving your goals.
Galderma released Kysse in 2020 as the first dermal filler designed for lips and lips alone. Nothing invites you in like a radiant smile glowing with confidence, and Restylane® Kysse is a sure-fire way to both frame your smile and make you more confident to show it off. The patented XpresHAn Technology found in Restylane® Kysse was designed for flexible movement and natural-looking volume that lasts up to a year. The body of the lip will appear smoother with fewer cross-hatch and vertical lines, and have a naturally enhanced color once injected by a professional at Bryn Mawr Dermatology. We are also able to correct asymmetry and define the borders of the lip to enhance its shape. Let’s not forget those pesky lines that form around the mouth from years of pursing, chewing, oohing, ahhing, grinning and grimacing. These tiny crevices become more noticeable with age, although a genetic predisposition plays a large factor as well. The product to smooth those lines and leave your friends wondering how you stay so young is Restylane® Silk.
Over time, the scaffolding of your face begins to deteriorate. The fat, muscle and underlying bone lose integrity and volume causing the overlying skin to sag and more prominent wrinkles to form. Restylane® Lyft is one of the BMD provider’s favorite products to help correct these signs of aging in the cheeks, midface (think deep smile lines that run from your nose to your mouth), and temples. Lyft is specifically designed to mimic the structure that you have lost and continue to look beautiful as time progresses. This hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is the first, and only of its kind to be FDA-approved to treat both your face and hands. While hands are not the first thing you see in the mirror every morning, they certainly play a big role in your life and because of that tolerate a lot of abuse. They participate in play, work and relationships, and as you age they age with you. If you would like to address thinning hands that appear skeletal due to prominent vessels and tendons ask the aesthetic authority at Bryn Mawr Dermatology if you would benefit from Restylane® Lyft to help correct those changes.
