Smooth out Wrinkles, Sculpt Lips or Reshape Facial Contours
What is Restylane?
Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is specifically designed to match the needs of the patient’s skin by smoothing out wrinkles, sculpting the lips, or reshaping facial contours. A great feature of Restylane is its ability to bind with water over an extended period of time to hydrate the skin and enhance its texture. Restylane is often used to manage the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in between the eyebrows, glabellar lines, and nasolabial folds. This dermal filler is effectively able to augment volume underneath the skin to gently lift and smooth out wrinkles.
Why should I consider using Restylane?
The skin’s elasticity diminishes over time and, as it does, it also begins to lose its smooth texture and healthy glow. This results in skin that looks feeble, dull, and dry. Similarly, our body’s hyaluronic acid and collagen levels decrease with age and this makes the skin looser and it then begins to sag and wrinkle in all the wrong places and makes patients look older than they should. Restylane is a very good option for patients who could benefit from the addition of instant volume to specific areas of the face like the lips, the jawline, and the cheeks. It is also highly efficient in improving the appearance of areas affected by fine lines and wrinkles.
How does a Restylane treatment go?
The administration of Restylane follows an organized treatment plan that involves an initial treatment and two succeeding treatments with the injectable gel. The first injection is administered, the second one follows at four or nine months after that, and the final installment about 18 months later. For the two succeeding treatments, only about half of the initial amount of Restylane will be used to obtain full correction.
What are the side effects of Restylane?
Patients are most likely to experience some level of discomfort after the procedure at the sites of injection. There will also be swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, itching, and possibly discoloration at the sites of treatment that can last for about a week before it starts to subside.
