Restylane® is a clear, non-animal based, biodegradable gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body.
Virtually any area of facial skin can be treated with one of the various Restylane® dermal fillers. Creases, deep folds, and light wrinkles can all be lessened through the use of Restylane®. Laugh lines and fine mouth lines are among the most popular targets for the injections. Enhancement of facial contours, usually accomplished with the larger particle size versions of Restylane®, is also possible. Sagging under the eyes, under-projected cheekbones, and recessive chins are often treated with this advanced hyaluronic acid formula. Among other popular applications of Restylane® is its use as a lip filler, where it can enhance volume and shape for months after treatment. In short, any area of the face that lacks volume, shape, or smoothness can experience improvement through Restylane® injections.
The hyaluronic acid molecules that make up the most important part of the Restylane® filler naturally draw in water and cause the tissue beneath lines and wrinkles to swell. This immediately fills out wrinkles and gives the skin a smoother surface. The result is a younger looking face in minutes.
Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body, it will be absorbed back into the body over time, and the effects of Restylane® will fade. However, a Restylane® treatment lasts longer than other cosmetic fillers, and re-treatment may not be necessary for up to 12 months.
