Restylane reverses the early signs of aging on the face
What is Restylane?Restylane is a cosmetic filler used to reduce the depth of wrinkles and lines on the skin. It is made from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, making it safe for use. Restylane can be injected into several areas of the face, including around the nose and mouth and under the eyes, to fill out deep creases or add volume to thinning lips.
How does Restylane work?Thanks to its ability to bind water molecules, Restylane fills these deep wrinkles smoothly and evenly with little chance of causing lumps or bumps that create an unnatural appearance. In some cases, however, patients may experience swelling or bruises just after the treatment, but this will quickly subside. The results of Restylane injections can last anywhere from up to six months or longer and require no downtime or special recovery process following the procedure, making it a convenient choice for those who want smooth skin without having to devote time to recover from surgery. Plastic surgery is much more invasive and costs more than the dermal filler injectables used at our office.
How long do the results of Restylane injections last?The improvements achieved with Restylane injections can last anywhere from six months up to a year or more, depending on your unique skin type, the location treated and the severity of the wrinkles you are looking to treat. Some patients undergo regular injections to maintain their youthful appearance, while others only need one session every few years. Restylane can also be combined with other injectables, such as Botox, a neuromodulator that inhibits muscle contractions in the face that contribute to forming dynamic wrinkles. The combination of injections is sometimes referred to as a "liquid facelift" and can provide noticeable and reliable results for several months.
Is Restylane right for me?If you are interested in reducing wrinkles on your face, lips, or other regions of the face where lines have formed over time, then Restylane may be right for you.
