A: Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume. There are two types of fillers, the first is a calcium-based microspheres that suspend in gel that stimulates your body to produce its own collagen. The gel is absorbed by the body leaving your own natural collagen. The other type of filler is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural product already found in the body. Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne and Restylane Kysse are all common fillers.
- Lyft is used to treat the mid-face, like your cheeks.
- Refyne is used to treat fine lines.
- Defyne is used to treat creases.
- Kysse is used to treat lips.
