Volume loss is one of the most obvious signs of aging. As we age our skin naturally loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. In fact, we lose 50% of our body’s natural hyaluronic acid between the age of 40 and 50. The decrease in these essential skin components results in wrinkles, creases, dehydration and skin laxity. Environmental and lifestyle factors also affect your skin: exposure to sunlight, pollution, stress, tobacco and poor skin maintenance can accelerate the skin aging process.
LOOKING AND FEELING YOUR BEST
The most commonly treated areas include:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Under-Eye Hollows
One of the most common questions we get asked is “how much will I need?” The amount of product injected will depend on the area being injected, your own anatomy and the results you are looking to achieve. The team at Revitalize Medical Laser Centre will work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan focusing on achieving optimal results.
Treatments generally take 30-90 minutes with little to no downtime. You will see immediate results, which last for six to twelve months depending on the treatment area. Potential side effects include redness, swelling and possible bruising at the injection site which normally resolves quickly.
