Restylane is a type of injectable filler that provides people who are suffering from the onset of the early signs of aging with a solution that can help make them look younger. The various Restylane products available can be used to fade away wrinkles, add volume to your cheeks, and enhance the lips.
What is Restylane
Restylane is composed of a substance known as hyaluronic acid. It is a chemical component that is present in the body naturally. The Restylane injections contain hyaluronic acid in a synthetic form to help make improvements in one’s facial aesthetic.
Hyaluronic acid is present in the skin to provide it with support, cushioning, and hydration. Once the solution in injected, it will work to give your skin a much more refreshed and vibrant look. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to attract molecules of water, which leads to improved hydration and moisture in the skin.
As you receive the injections of Restylane, hyaluronic acid attracts the moisture and fills your skin. The process results in immediate smoothing of fine lines and restoration of lost volume in the cheeks or lips.
The results provided by the treatment are long-lasting and look natural. Your expressions will look natural and you will be able to retain the original contours of your face but with a subtle lift.
The Restylane Treatment Process
The Restylane treatment involves a series of injections directly on the lip or the cheeks. While performing the treatment, your doctor will determine the proper dosage based on the aesthetic goals you’d like to accomplish. You can expect the treatment to last about 30 to 40 minutes.
After the treatment is completed, you won’t have to worry about downtime or recovery. As a minimally invasive treatment, restylane does not pose any harm to your body as it has no serious side effects. You can expect a bit of redness or swelling to appear on the injection sites, but these reactions are temporary and will subside quickly.
There is no risk of any kind of allergic reaction when using Restylane. It contains a filler material that your body is already familiar with and recognizes. You don’t need to undergo allergy testing before using Restylane.
The Benefits of Using Restylane
The Restylane injections can contain different sizes of hyaluronic acid particles. Fine particles help to remove fine lines. Medium-sized particles are for wrinkles that can range from mild lines to deep creases. Large particles help to remove severe wrinkles and add more volume to the cheeks.
Restylane is available for removing wrinkles from the chin, around the nose, and near the mouth. If you have lost volume in the cheeks, Restylane can help restore it. Volume loss in the cheeks can give you a tired and aged appearance, but Restylane can help add a subtle lift to the cheeks and plump the skin naturally.
If you have lost volume in the lips, Restylane injections can enhance their shape and size as well. One Restylane filler offers only lip enhancement. But if you also wish to remove lines from above the lips along with plumping them a bit; a specific Restylane product is available for that as well.
