As we age, our skin becomes loose and thin, and wrinkles develop where skin used to be plump and full. These lines are a result of natural aging as well as sun exposure, smoking and pollution. Natural aging occurs when the fat around the cheeks deteriorates and hyaluronic acid in the skin begins to diminish. Skin then loses its fullness and elasticity, which increases the opportunities for wrinkles to appear.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can plump up the skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It can also plump up the lips. This filler has the potential to provide a more youthful appearance and give long-lasting results without surgery.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a clear gel made out of hyaluronic acid. This acid occurs naturally within the body, but diminishes over time. Restylane® acts as the hyaluronic acid that has been lost as it fills in the lines around the nose, the mouth and down to the jawline.
Restylane® corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and smile lines. It is a minimally-invasive treatment that requires no surgery and little downtime, if any. Plus, it provides very natural-looking results.
What Happens During a Restylane® Treatment?
Our specialist first cleans and prepares the facial area that is going to be treated. Then, the Restylane® solution is skillfully injected into the desired area. Only minimal discomfort is involved.
Patients are free to resume most normal activities immediately following their treatment session. This makes it a convenient treatment for people with busy schedules and hectic lifestyles.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane®?
Restylane® is approved for use by patients who are 21 or older. Good candidates are in good overall health with realistic expectations regarding the results. They understand that the treatment will make them look more refreshed, but that it won’t make them look like they did when they were a teenager. And really, that’s what most people want. They don’t want to look 30 years younger; they just want to look like the best possible version of themselves.
