what is restylane?
Restylane is a soft tissue filler formulated with hyaluronic acid. Its source is non-animal based, which eliminates the need for pre-treatment testing. An advantageous aspect of this product is its resemblance to the hyaluronic acid produced in the body, creating a high level of safety and efficacy.
Benefits Of Restylane
Each dermal filler product has unique characteristics that make it suitable for specific goals. Restylane has a proven safety record built over twenty years of clinical use. Its natural ingredients are kind to tissues, and capable of restoring the desired contours. Clinical studies demonstrate the longevity of Restylane in the treatment of laugh lines, lasting several months at a time. When used to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other creases in the skin, Restylane can last approximately six months. However, every person metabolizes dermal fillers differently and may enjoy results for a slightly longer or shorter period of time.
Wrinkle-Reduction And More With Restylane
One of the primary uses of Restylane is to smooth lines and wrinkles on the face. Different than Botox, which lessens the strength of muscular contractions, Restylane fills areas of depression, plumping them up to a level surface for a more youthful appearance. With time and biochemical changes in the body, the elasticity of the skin decreases. Beneath the skin, supportive tissues and fibers break down. Typically, hyaluronic acid is present to promote moisture and plumpness. With diminished stores of this and other vital substances, volume loss occurs at a rate of as much as one teaspoon per year. In time, this loss translates into lines and creases, such as nasolabial folds and “laugh lines.”
The purpose of Restylane treatment is to restore the presence of hyaluronic acid in problem areas such as marionette lines and the corners of the mouth. Additionally, the smooth gel consistency of this product makes it suitable for natural looking lip enhancement. Careful application of this filler adds fullness and volume to the lips, and the definition needed to keep lipstick beautifully in place.
