Have you noticed fine lines, sagging skin, and a loss of facial volume? Collagen loss and fat atrophy is are the hallmarks of aging and you may notice smile lines, along with deep creases around the nose and the mouth as well as flattening of the cheeks, lip volume loss, and hollow appearing eyes. While there is no way to completely stop the aging process, Surgical Arts of Virginia & Ageless Innovations Medical Spa can help slow things down with Restylane.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that adds facial volume in the face. It is designed to correct moderate-to-severe wrinkles around the mouth and nose and to restore cheeks and lip plumpness. Restylane is a great option for patients who want to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles while adding volume to the desired areas.

If you’re over the age of 21 and concerned about moderate-to-severe wrinkles or volume loss in the face, Restylane may be an option for you.

How is Restylane Performed?
Most appointments for Restylane injections at Surgical Arts of Virginia & Ageless Innovations Medical Spa take about a half an hour to complete. Dr. Palmer performs all injections.
