Restylane® is an instant volumizer which requires little to no downtime. As we grow older, our skin loses volume and begins to develop changes recognizable as wrinkles and folds. Some of the main components of healthy skin are water, fat, collagen and hyaluronic acid. There are a number of injectable cosmetic fillers available to help improve upon one’s facial appearance and achieve a more youthful look without plastic surgery. These fillers restore the lost volume and smooth out skin wrinkles. Collagen and fat are some of the more traditional fillers used for cosmetic enhancement but they can have some drawbacks.
Restylane has a number of advantages over other injections. The hyaluronic acid that makes up Restylane is naturally found in our bodies and provides volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane has been proven to last longer than collagen injections as it maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. Fat injections, although typically much longer lasting, are a more involved procedure and typically require more downtime than Restylane.
Problems that can be improved using Restylane injections include:
- Frown lines between eyebrows
- Deep-set eyes
- Tear trough area
- Nasolabial folds
- Droopy corners of the mouth
- Lip lines
- Thinning lips
- Sunken acne scars
