Restylane® is an injectable facial filler to address the signs of aging. The main ingredient is a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body that makes up healthy tissues. It offers a number of benefits in skin rejuvenation and anti-aging. This treatment fills in wrinkles and actually improves skin’s health by providing lubrication and moisture. Below is some more information about how this treatment can benefit you.
Restylane® is a naturally-based injectable filler. The clear hyaluronic gel in the injectable adds substance and volume to fine lines and wrinkles. It is advantageous to other types of dermal fillers because it’s less likely to cause an allergic reaction due to the fact that hyaluronic acid is found in the human body. HA also offers skin-rejuvenating benefits such as adding moisture and volume. You’ll see your results improve over time.
What Restylane® Treats
Restylane® offers a number of treatment options, as it can be used nearly anywhere on the face. There are multiple fillers in the Restylane® product line to treat specific issues. This powerful treatment can even reduce the appearance of deep folds and creases, along with more moderate wrinkles. It’s particularly useful for targeting the lines that form around the mouth due to laughing or years of smoking. Under-eye sagging, less-than-prominent cheek bones and other areas of that face that could use some contouring are perfect for treatment because it adds volume and plumpness to places that are lacking. It can even be used as a lip filler, adding volume and refining shape.
What to Expect
You’ll want to meet with your practitioner for a consultation prior to deciding on this treatment, as it’s important to share your medical history and expectations with your doctor. Most sessions last only a few minutes up to a half hour, so it’s a convenient procedure. In addition, there’s no downtime. You can return to your everyday activities immediately following your session. Local anesthetic is given prior to treatment, and a thin needle is used to inject Restylane® into the targeted area. The HA in Restylane® will react in a way that draws moisture to it, leading swelling to occur in the tissues. You’ll be left with a smoother appearance to your skin.
