Dr. Ronald J. Johnson offers hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers including Restylane® at his Germantown practice in the Memphis Metro area. These fillers restore volume to areas of the face, such as nasolabial folds, that have become more deeply etched with age. Filler injections are non-surgical treatments and are among the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S.
If you're concerned about the early signs of aging, dermal filler injections could be the solution. Request a consultation online to talk about facial rejuvenation with Dr. Johnson or call our office at (901) 737-1050 and a member of our friendly staff will help schedule an appointment.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear, biodegradable gel filler formulated with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body, and since there are no animal-derived ingredients, allergy testing isn't necessary before treatment.
Restylane enhances volume using the body's own moisture. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is hydrophilic or "water loving." As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results.
Dr. Johnson personally performs all non-surgical cosmetic injections at our clinic. With a detailed knowledge of facial anatomy, Dr. Johnson's precise injections treats specific areas, such as lines around the mouth, indentations under the eyes, and nasolabial folds. Restylane is also used for lip enhancement.
Restylane and other fillers are extremely safe and any side effects, such as redness or swelling, are minimal and temporary.
