Restylane® is one of the most well known facial fillers in the United States, known for its safety, efficacy and longstanding results. It is a safe and natural cosmetic facial filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds.
Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the looks of aging. Until recently, injectable collagen was the most widely used available cosmetic filler to improve the appearance of these lines.
In addition to Dysport treatments, combining Restylane® to enhance your appearance is a completely natural way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead, chin, cheeks, and the area around the mouth.
After Restylane® treatment, you will experience noticeably smoother, more youthful skin, and since there is no downtime after treatment, you can return to daily activities immediately. Restylane® injections can be repeated as necessary, usually every six to twelve months, to maintain facial rejuvenation results.
In addition to smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, Restylane® can be utilized to augment the lips, creating a natural-looking fullness and aesthetically pleasing shape. Depending on your individual needs, Restylane® treatments, like Dysport injections, can be used alone or in conjunction with various other cosmetic procedures for more noticeable and lasting results.
Restylane® is an excellent treatment option for:
- Lip enhancement
- Deep folds
- Facial lines
- Wrinkle correction
- Volume augmentation of the lips
- Shaping facial contours (such as cheeks and chin correcting)
What Is Restylane® Made Of?
Restylane® is a cosmetic filler that is made of a biodegradable hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance present in all living organisms. This natural acid provides volume and fullness to an organism’s epidermis (i.e., skin). Restylane® is produced as a clear gel substance and is injected directly beneath the surface of the skin.
Through the introduction of Restylane to the treatment area, the hyaluronic-based gel adds natural volume and lift resulting in smoother wrinkles and less prominent folds. Moreover, and what distinguishes Restylane® from other dermal fillers, is the way in which Restylane® permeates the dermal tissue and naturally binds to water molecules. Through this action, the modified water molecules assist in achieving and maintaining volume possessing a natural appearance. Over time, Restylane® is gradually degraded by the body and dissolves without any residue or trace.
