Three layers comprise normal skin: the epidermis or outer layer, the dermis or middle layer, and the innermost layer of fat. The major component of the dermis is collagen. As we age the normal volume and production of collagen decrease. The reduced volume and the effects of gravity contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are compounds that are injected directly into the dermis to restore volume and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Currently, Semler Dermatology offers the Restylane® line.
The Restylane® line smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, provides subtle lip enhancement, smooths the lines around the mouth, adds lift and volume to the cheeks and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands.
With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last from six months up to a year.
