What happens as we age?
Changes in the skin occur with age, but some skin issues occur from diet, heredity, or other lifestyle choices such as overexposure to the sun and smoking. Over time the skin loses the natural substance, hyaluronic acid, causing a reduction of the skin’s fullness, which increases the development of wrinkles and folds. Moderate to severe facial wrinkles or folds can be corrected with Restylane.
Restylane is a gel-based natural substance containing hyaluronic acid that produces a new firmness and a healthy appearance to the skin non-surgically. As the natural substance in your skin, Hylauronic acid, which provides fullness and elasticity starts to diminish, Restylane can be used to restore or reveal a younger-looking you. Restylane provides an affordable alternative or replacement for surgery for correcting moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles.
Where and how Restylane is most effective?
Smile lines are treated dependent on the individual needs of the patient by injecting Restylane under the skin. Smile lines, folds, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth are the most effective areas for treatment. At least 95% of patients see results of up to 18 months from initial treatment of lines from the nose to the mouth when they followed a Restylane regimen. The regimen is a treatment plan that involves the initial treatment and a follow-up visit 4.5 or nine months later. After that you can discuss the frequency of follow-up visits with your doctor. Restylane holds its shape while remaining soft and smooth also making it a more suitable treatment for hollowing under the eyes. As of now, the safety and effectiveness of Restylane treatment in areas other than facial have not been determined.
Fullness and definition after the lipstick is washed away
Being that your lips are a defining feature of your face, lipstick is one of the most purchased cosmetics. As you age your lips can lose volume and may not match your unique facial structure any longer and it is not uncommon to want enhancements. Restylane can help restore your lips to the way you want them – a beautiful, natural appearance for up to six months. Restylane is the only FDA approved dermal filler for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years of age. A consultation with your doctor will determine if Restylane for lip enhancement is right for you and if so, the frequency of those treatments.
Is Restylane right for you?
Restylane treatments are safe and reliable and used by millions of patients worldwide. Cosmetic dermal gel fillers are the most adaptable because they can be used anywhere on the face where there are wrinkles. A downside to their use is the temporary longevity, which is improving and also means that you are never stuck with a result that you are unhappy with. Since there is little to no downtime you will see improvements immediately following treatment. Don’t use Restylane if you have previously suffered with bad allergies, serious allergies to drugs, or bleeding disorders.
