(Excerpt) How many times have you looked in the mirror—or your laptop screen—in the past two years and not loved what you see. Do you look tired? Could your skin texture be better? Have you noticed volume loss in your lower face? A downward pull along your jawline?
Toronto dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett says these are typically the issues people fixate on the most and visit her clinic DLK on Avenue looking for help with. “I would say tiredness is definitely the number one concern people have today with their appearance,” reports Dr. Kellett. “Women and men are looking for treatment options to give a naturally, rejuvenated and appearance. A celebrity like Jennifer Lopez is a great example of what people are looking to emulate. She is turning 53 and looks beautiful, healthy and incredible.”
The year 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of Restylane, the original stabilized hyaluronic acid dermal filler, an invention that unquestionably changed the beauty game. It made a refreshed skin appearance totally achievable and accessible. In the years since its introduction and subsequent booming popularity, Dr. Kellett says the results people want have also changed over time. “The look today for lips and cheeks is not so overly plumped. When I consult with patients looking for treatments, the most important thing I stress is that any work you’re had done should be totally unnoticeable. The goal is to look like you, but with a few undetectable enhancements.”
