The Restylane range of fillers used at Skin Renewal is specifically designed to match the different facial areas best to provide our physicians the most appropriate filler for a tailor-made correction approach.

Restylane now comes in 9 specialized formats, namely;


MD CODES:

Dermal fillers placed into the following MD Code areas will help lift jowls and strengthen the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system), which is the layer of the muscles of facial expression in their own connective tissue envelope.



The SMAS lies beneath the skin and subcutaneous tissue, and it is one of the most critical support structures for the face and neck. The strengthening of the SMAS and foundation of the face with dermal fillers placed strategically into areas called the MD Codes. These will lift the sagging excess tissue due to lack of collagen, bone loss, deep fat pad loss (destabilising the ligaments attaching to the facial skin), and muscle weakness. Volumising the deep fat pads with dermal fillers lifts these ligaments that support the foundation of the face.

The FOUNDATION CODES; CK1, Ck2, CK4, and T1 strengthen the SMAS and pull the jowls up and outwards. CK3 volumises the deep cheek fat pad in the mid-face and the banana fat pad under the eyes and thus improves deep hollows under the eyes. CK 5 volumises hollow cheeks and lifts jowls.

The CONTOUR CODES; C 1 to C6 feminise the jawline area, soften the marionette lines and jowl area, lift a downturned mouth corner and soften a protruding chin. JW1 to JW5 improves the jawline, jowls and double chin,

The REFINEMENT CODES; soften nasolabial folds, improves tear troughs and softens lines around the mouth; smokers lines and lip augmentation can also be artistically done to achieve "natural "looking lips.

questions

About Restylane Optimal Balance Technology™:

Thanks to this manufacturing engineering innovation, each of the Restylane fillers possesses the optimal balance between the degree of cross-linking and gel calibration, articulated around a constant hyaluronic acid concentration of 20 mg/ml.

The different variations of the gel calibration and different degrees of cross linking around this constant hyaluronic acid concentration gives way to the optimal gel texture of Restylane. Thicker or thinner fillers were obtained thanks to varying gel calibration, firmer or softer fillers were obtained thanks to varying cross-linking.

This allows a suitable integration of the gel into the appropriate skin layer, thus enabling the desired lifting effect. As a result, Restylane fillers provide an excellent combination of tolerability profile and long-lasting aesthetic outcomes whatever the depth, area and volume correction, as shown in clinical studies.

Please advise on the best non surgical "procedure" for crows feet and under eye fine lines - I have had Botox for the crows feet but my under eye area bothers me - not puffy nor dark circles, but the fine crepey lines.

Laser and dermal fillers would very possibly be good options, and perhaps even some carboxytherapy (a combination of the 3 would give you great results). Other options that are highly effective, but do come with a fair bit of downtime include treatments such as Jett Plasma, CO2 Fractional Laser, Pearl Fractional Laser or Fraxel Laser. There are certainly many things that could be a consideration, even under eye dermal filler might be an option, but it all depends on the severity of the condition and the outcome that you are hoping to achieve. It is very important to choose the correct "tools" for the job. 

How long do the results last?

8-10 months, dependent on the volume of filler used.

How many treatments are needed for a great result?

1-2 Dermal filler treatments are needed for great results.

Dr. Ross is amazing. Great personality (making the needle sticking almost enjoyable, haha) and, more importantly, excellent work: facial cheek bio-remodeling, botox, lip fillers. Highly, highly recommended!

What an experience. I have been building up for 10 years to have my upper lip seen to. After meeting Dr Zander and the calming effect on me I decided to take the big step. What an awesome person. What an awesome environment from you minute you walk in, to the time you leave. Renewal Institute will be my second home. Above VIP treatment. Thank you

I've been a client at Skin Renewal for the past 5 years, at the Parkhurst, Morningside and Pineslopes branches. All the staff are professional and friendly, and each visit is consistently amazing. I am particularly happy with Dr Lestonn Lawn, who I've been seeing for lip injectables for just over 2 years now. I love his manner and technique and after every visit, my lips never fail to look amazing (Kylie Jenner for what)! We've done Juvederm as well as Restylane fillers, and both have had fab results, thanks to the precision of Dr Lawn! 6 out of 5 stars from me :)

I have been a client of the Skin Renewal Institute since the beginning of this Year and have never looked back. The attention to detail and the warm, friendly faces of the entire Skin Renewal team makes you feel instantly at home. I have had the pleasure of my treatments for aging and acne done by Dr Maureen Allem. She is literally Wonder Women. When it comes to Acne, she treats you from the inside out and I have been noticing amazing results over time. I have had Restylane under eye fillers in the tear trough area and Princess volume done on the outer corners of my eyes. They have filled up nicely and I don’t have that tired & exhausted look about me anymore which I have always tried to cover up with makeup. The procedure stung a bit, was not uncomfortable and I did not require a topical aesthetic at all. A follow up visit is required to access the area once fillers are done. The radiance peel for acne and scarring is definitely a must, and when Lourita Louw is done with you, your face will literally glow. I have done 3 treatments so far and have noticed significant improvement with texture and scarring. I am wearing less makeup during the day and have skipped base all together. The Health Renewal part of the clinic is worth every penny spent. Forget cocktails at the bar, how about one that actually benefits you in a number of ways. Dr Maricia is definitely the one to see when it comes to this. She is the holy grail of all things cocktails when it comes to IV infusion health. The IV infusions are painless and she is really gentle when it comes to the needle which I appreciate, seeing as I hate needles. Whatever your concern, visiting the Skin Renewal Pineslopes branch is definitely worth the consult.

I received excellent service from the first phone call to the clinic. I received all the information I needed before I even arrived and felt complete confidence in the treatment I received from Dr Rulene Maré. I would not hesitate to recommend Skin Renewal Somerset West to anyone wanting to improve their appearance and to boost their self-confidence.
