Restylane is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation and facial contouring treatment. It involves injecting highly-personalized units of specific Restylane dermal filler formulations into targeted facial regions, such as the nasolabial folds, cheeks, chin, lips, etc. Restylane fillers enhance facial volume and fill out the fine lines and wrinkles, making them ideal for reversing the signs of aging or enhancing facial contours. Restylane is currently one of the world’s leading collections of dermal fillers.
Restylane is a collection of dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid as the base. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, biocompatible, and biodegradable gel that can bind up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. When you’re young, your skin has high volumes of hyaluronic acid, which is why your skin looks soft, voluminous, and supple. Restylane works by restoring your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves — it can reduce wrinkles and enhance facial contours.
Restylane is a simple, in-office procedure that concludes within 30-45 minutes. The cosmetic provider will examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and recommend the ideal Restylane formulation. You may need one specific Restylane product, a combination of several products. The chosen Restylane filler is carefully injected into strategic locations underneath your facial tissues using ultrafine needles. The sensation is comparable to a pinprick.
The entire Restylane procedure concludes within 30-45 minutes, following which you can resume your daily activities. You may experience mild redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but not enough to prevent you from working. However, you may have to avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two. You can conceal the post-treatment bruising with foundation.
Restylane produces instant results — the hyaluronic acid molecules will instantly enhance your facial volume and fill out the fine lines and wrinkles. The results will gradually improve as the side effects dissipate in a few days. Most dermal fillers last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the formulation used, the number of units, and the treatment area. You may need one or two Restylane treatments per year to maintain youthful looks all year long.
