For patients with early signs of aging who do not want or need more aggressive facelift procedures soft tissue fillers can make a significant difference. They do so with little or no recovery time, less cost and less risk of complications than classical operative/surgical procedures. These patients can be in their 30s, 40s or 50s since each individual ages differently. They can also be used in conjunction with facelift surgery or other procedures. They are most often used at the same time or in conjunction with botox injections.
Restylene, Juvederm, Voluma and other similar products are nonsulfated sugar-protein molecules (hyaluronates) analogous to those distributed widely in the body naturally throughout connective, epithelial and neural tissues. Hyaluronates are a major component of joint fluid. The molecules in the injectable forms are cross linked to various degrees and types which accounts for the different properties of the different available injectable fillers. They are all temporary and slowly dissolve over time so repeat injections are required.
